In an effort to keep things a little simpler, we've created a new blog for our feature film HILLS GREEN. We will keep posting good things here on Yellyfish, but for all things feature related please visit here: HILLS GREEN.

So, we have begun some initial planning of our first feature film. The ideas have been floating around for a while but we now find ourselves more determined than ever to finally make one of our own. If all goes well shooting will begin in September. That said, we are still in the early stages and trying to conquer the beast that is casting. If there are any visitors to our blog out there, 20 something in age, living in Toronto and who dig our style, we are still looking for the right person to be the male lead in our somewhat abstract film. Feel free to comment on this post and we can give you more info. Thanks in advance!

For the next while much of the posting here will probably have to do with the progress of our film. But we promise to include all the pretty and wonderful photos and videos that we can. Hope you enjoy.

GH13 AVCHD hack tests with anamorphics...

first test using an increased bitrate in the AVCHD mode;

GH1 hacked AVCHD (and anamorphic) from Ryan Glover on Vimeo.


shot with the Tester 13 firmware hack and LOMO anamorphic lenses mounted with the Hot Rod PL adapter and a Class 6 Panasonic SD card.

patch settings:
-Native 24p
-Video bitrate adjustment - 40000000
-Overall bitrate adjustment - 46000000
-Limiting bitrate adjustment - 50000000

shutterspeed was all 1/50, ISO was all 100.
bitrates seemed to peak at around 32Mbps.
no color correction done.

these grabs pretty much sum up the improvements;


fullsized (jpeg'd) grabs...

this is like having a completely different camera!

GH13 Native 2x Anamorphic Tests

I finally got a chance to install the new modified firmware for the GH1. So far I have left the AVC mode alone because I really wanted to try out the MJPEG on-camera squeeze mode with my LOMO anamorphic lenses.

So I made my MJPEG frame 2560x720(3.56:1 aspect, which is 2x 1.78:1) this mode stretches the image by 2x but when you shoot with a 2x anamorphic lens, it cancels the effect out and you get a non squeezed 3.56:1 clip.. this can then be easily cropped in post to a perfect 1920x720 2.67:1 aspect ratio.. AMAZING! Unfortunately though this hack is just blowing up the image from 720P somehow and so it's not really all that sharp.. but still really neat!

Here are some comparison still grabs of the new MJPEG hack vs. my old anamorphic work flow (AVCHD squeezed and cropped to 1440x54)

MJPEG native anamorphic hack:

lots and lots of testing to come!

Our short film for The Reel Challenge

We recently entered The Reel Challenge, a video contest in Canada where we had to make a short film about the importance of creator's rights and copyright protection. While sadly we did not win, we thought we'd post our efforts here since (I think) we still managed to make a pretty decent short.

Anamorphic Cherry Blossoms

Every April/May tons of people gather in High Park to picnic, photo take, and generally have a good time under the blossoming cherry trees. Here is a little video shot at sunset under the trees.

a little piece shot on the weekend to test out my new 35mm and 80mm Lomo anamorphic square front lenses. LOVE the image, the barrel distortion on the 35 is lovely and the bokeh on the 80 is incredible!

thanks for watching!

i love pulling frames from these anamorphic videos, it eliminates the CMOS issues and lets the anamorphic artifacts really stand out.. and so here are some grabs:
