The Australian Cinematographers Society with help from Panavision, Sony, Dolby and Netflix have created a video to take a look at the new HDR standards displacing Rec 709 that will inevitably help create the new image framework for the 21st century.
The society hopes to dispel the myths and clearly outline the many advantages a cinematographer can hope to bring to a production with a HDR finish. Artistically the window of both colour and exposure is now greatly expanded and for the first time content creators can control how their work is displayed on the myriad of modern devices.
In the video the society shoots both a controlled Studio test with Toby Oliver ACS and a short film project for practical real world experience and follow through to the HDR grade. The video discusses and explores with cinematographers and colourists how to best adapt to this new paradigm.
