Recently completed this with the EOS R. This was my first real video project I've shot and cut apart from a smaller 2-3 minute trailer I cut a year ago using the Canon 1DX2.
I'm very impressed with the R. This was shot with the 4k 10 bit C Log out at 24fps to an Atomos Ninja V, recording in ProRes 422, NOT ProResHQ. I did nothing to the grading of the interview shots apart from mild white balance correction on one or two of the girls as we had a rising sun coming through the studio window as a key light. Audio for interviews was captured on a Rode NTG-3 and Tascam DR-60D with the line output fed into the EOS R. I goofed the audio settings a bit. Lesson learned for the future, but no reflection on the gear. Just minor operator error as this entire thing thing was shot in relative haste due to time constraints. I plan to do a BTS video with it in the near future for more detail.
I can't say enough how impressed I am with this camera for video. I haven't even taken a still frame with it yet LOL.
I've been shooting stills at this dance school for several years, and the subjects in this film I've known since they were little kids. SO it's a special one for me. That said, the last 3 mins bring it home with a huge montage. Hope ya'll enjoy it!
BTW, Here's one of the stills I just shot on the 1DX Mk II this past weekend for the 2019 Recital .... 30 foot stage, 25 foot 4K motion graphic LED wall behind dancers with intelligent LED lighting moving and color changing constantly with dancers flying through the air while I'm trying to guess what is about to happen next and where to point the lens. About the most difficult shooting environment you can imagine......
