      • Follow-up on first 4K project at Holland Festival ‘07
      • Era la Notte (capture+streaming)
      • Setting new challenges:
        • performing arts filming with multicam cutting/directing
        • seamless integration in performing arts workflow
        • HD live feed and 4K editing, 5.1 HD (192kHz/24bit) sound
        • wider distribution of end result: 4K projection / HD BluRay
        • Experimenting with 3D
    • Choice of project
      • Needs:
        • Visually attractive
        • Internationally appealing content, not language-based
        • Straightforward performing arts production
        • Rights-free content
        • Technically possible to install cameras / tech booth
        • More than one performance to allow rehearsals / retakes
    • Visually attractive
      • Zaha Hadid Architects Bach Pavilion
    • Visually attractive
      • … in the Amsterdam Gashouder , a disused factory plant
    • Internationally appealing content
      • Viktoria Mullova / J.S. Bach solo violin sonatas

        • concert planned twice in this venue, with the
        • possibility to test-film other concerts before this one
    • Workflow

      • Audio recording T/C-referenced to image master clock
    • Production setup
      • Temporary video booth in backstage area
      • 2 fixed cameras on tripods: 1 front row, 1 back row
      • 1 camera on 12ft travel rails, stage left / “coté cour”
      • 1 camera (3D rig) on supertechno 30ft crane
      • VERY stringent cable run demands on behalf of the pavilion architects: zero visibility for audience
    • Cable run design
    • Cable run design
    •  
    •  
    • Quick turnaround on shooting days
      • Because of staff cost and equipment rental cost
      • Limited availability of artist
      • Get-in on concert day 1 AM, tech rehearsal PM
      • out-takes and reshooting close-ups on PM day 2
    •  
    •  
    •  
    •  
    • Post-production workflow - image
      • off-line editing: Final Cut Pro in ProRes422HQ
      • Color grading: Filmmaster/Nucoda (RED rocket card)
      • (grading on RAW files through 2K proxies)
      • Disparity correction: Filmmaster/Nucoda
      • Convergence correction: Fusion
      • Online master format: 4K DPX 16bit
    •  
    • Post-production workflow - audio
      • off-line editing: Final Cut Pro in 48kHz/24bit stereo
      • Preliminary clean-up: Protools in 48kHz/24 bit stereo
      • Audio post-conform: TBC – possibly Protools from offline EDL
      • Audio remix/re-edit: TBC – Protools HD or Sadie
      • Altiverb convolution reverb
      • Cedar restoration tools
      • Mastering format: 5.1 surround B-WAV, 192kHz / 24 bit
    • Evaluation: pitfalls and lessons learnt
      • Technically:
      • Complexity of converging different workflow types
        • (TV, Film, 3D)
      • Focus challenges – 4K viewfinders needed
      • Complexity of post-production workflow
      • Limited benefits vs. huge resource cost of HD Audio
      • Sync, logging and post-conform problems when using separate audio recording (despite T/C link)
    • Evaluation: pitfalls and lessons learnt
      • Artistically:
      • HD TV, 4K projection and 3D ask for three different types of photography and edit
      • 2D material hard to edit into 3D material of this type
      • More exploration into full potential of 4K editing needed
      • (post-production zoom and scan)
      • We find ourselves in a situation very similar to the first decade of stereo sound recording (1958-1968)
    • Future of the project
      • HD TV broadcast of full concert – spring 2011
      • 4K projection of demo excerpts and full concert
      • (stereo projection of 3D demo clip)
      • HD BluRay (with 3D bonus material) spring 2011
      • + 4K mono and stereo material made available to Cinegrid network for research and demo
