Ancient Chinese instrument Gu Zheng 古筝

-Great music, great filming. 

Cineplus test: Ancient Chinese instrument from Joe Olsson on Vimeo.
This is a test of the Cineplus picture style by John Hope, consisting of a handful of shots of my friend 刘晓 playing the ancient Chinese instrument 古筝.

I will edit a longer, complete version in a couple of weeks when time allows. Hence for this test video I didn't bother to synchronize different parts of the song or add the external sound for interview and song, recorded by a voice recorder.

Note that this footage is absolutely ungraded and untouched. It's coming straight from the camera.

Settings: Sharpness 3, Contrast -2, Saturation -3, Color -1.

In the first scene, natural light is coming from a window. For the other scenes, I closed the curtains and used a lamp.

Please come back with opinions, and advice for eventual change of color, saturation etc when I start to edit the full piece in a couple of weeks.

Filmed with Canon 5D Mark II and a Zeiss 28mm f2.0 lens.
