It that time of year where we gather spooked up images from the #cinematography world at large.

@ducloslenses add a carved #pumpkin glow to this 75mm Cooke S4/i and took the time to write a rhyme.

Ghouls and goblins and hocus pocus,
Time to recalibrate and get your lens to focus.

Imagine that your day job involved pointing your camera into the mouth of a huge elephant seal. Here's just one day in the life of #BAFTA & #Emmy #AwardWinning #DirectorOfPhotography Mark MacEwen @markmacewen_dop shooting the #Antarctica episode of @bbcearth #sevenworldsoneplanet for @bbcone which aired on Sunday evening (watch it on catch up). The location is St. Andrews beach in South #Georgia. Elephant seals weigh upto 8000lbs and grow up to 18ft long. Mark says from experience that "They move much faster than you expect!"

A great breakdown video from #youtuber Evan Puschak aka The Nerdwriter @thenerdwriter about the #cinematography of Patrick Lin and the #lightingdesign of Jean-Claude Kalache in Toy Story 4 @toystory. Watch in full on his youtube channel or our facebook page.

The video looks at the career of #DirectorOfPhotography Patrick Lin and his use of real camera and cinematography techniques within the animated world of Disney Pixar.

In the 2013 short The Blue Umbrella Patrick pioneered a camera capture technique where the movement of the camera is tracked in the same way as an actor in #motioncapture resulting in camera movement that retains a human touch.

Patrick was the first on a Pixar film to model the look of it's virtual cameras on real lenses. In Inside Out the "mind world" was modelled on Arri Zeiss Ultra Prime lenses with the "real world" is modelled on Cooke S4/i lenses.

Toy Story 4 was the first Pixar animated film to be composed in a 2:39:1 aspect ratio giving the virtual camera teams the opportunity to model Cooke Anamorphic/i lenses ratcheting up the distortion effects, with oval bokeh giving everything a more cinematic feel with the virtual #CookeLook.

Here's #Berlin based Director Nik Meyberg @nikhollywood holding the Motor Film Awards @motorfilmawards trophy pictured here with Sound Designers Steve Patuta and Justin La Vallee of @qmusicandsound. The powerful commercial for Yutime "Brothers" was the co-winner of the #Cinematography Award alongside Mission: Impossible - Fallout. Cooke Optics sponsored the Cinematography category for the first time and is proud to be championing talent in the #automotive sector. Sadly twice nominated DOP Jann Doepoert FNF @jann_se was not able to make it to the awards but raised a glass to his team on hearing the good news.

How #Canadian #rapper @Drake bought the rights to the critically-acclaimed but decommissioned @channel4 #dramaseries @topboynetflix & sold series 3 to @Netflix. Denise Williams chats to DOP Joe Anderson @jandy for #CookeOpticsNews see www.cookeoptics.com in the news section.

#ShotOnCooke S7/i Full Frame Plus lenses.
Cinematographer Joe Anderson immediately fell in love with the series. “It’s almost Shakespearean in how the story is written and unfolds,” he says. “Originally, the four episodes of each season were directed by a single director for each season. For this 10-episode series, the show was broken into four blocks with four directors. I love being able to create worlds — it’s the best part of the job — and this was a genre I had never worked in before, so I jumped at the chance.” Production ran for six months in London, starting in July 2018. “@ARRI had just announced its new large format #ALEXALF larger sensor for #4K,” explained Anderson. “But the #Cookelenses I use for #Super35 were not going to work — they can’t fill the sensor. And I also like a constant aperture.” Two things made the Cooke S7/i lenses the perfect choice for Anderson for Top Boy. “First, the lenses are so fast at T2. Second, it had a look I was familiar with from using the Cooke S4s on "The Old Man & The Gun". That ‘Cooke Look®’ carries between lens families. I knew that look so well, and it was appropriate for this story.” In fact, since Top Boy would be shooting with multiple units, he convinced camera and lens supplier @ARRI_Rental UK to purchase an additional set of Cooke S7/i lenses. The set contained 25, 32, 40, 75, 100 and 135mm focal lengths.
