Love the hand-held. Really seems like the scene is frozen and viewer is taking time to explore such an intense moment.

I just checked out some of Leisure Suit's music and it seems to me that this clip is a nice fit for their emotional sound. Plus: Great clip! I have never heard of Boujou and Rayfire. I must check them out!

Looks great!!! I think I see a slight movement of the hand near the end though.

I noticed that as well Andrés. I think that the actors in the clip are just standing really still.

Thanks everybody ! Yes the track is perfect but sadly the actors are not robots so what looks like a misaligned track is the actor jiggling his hand . This really should have been shot at 120fps -144fps so that issues like that would be optically smoothed out . However we just couldn't get the light needed for higher fps with out pumping the ISO too much . Even then there was tons of sensor noise that had to be removed with magic bullet denoiser .As you can also see the roto work isn't done yet . The green screen was also problematic . Everything was shot in a garage . And leisure suit is fantastic ! very production savy band with great taste . Pleasure working with them .

The shot itself looks great Justin, and as you said, the actors are not robots. Within the limitations I think it's a great shot and I notice that kind of "errors" because I look into those sometimes. I'm sure in context, watching the complete scene, that slight movement of the hand goes unnoticed

So we all agree that working with robots is much easier right?

Yes when you can always work with robots . Preferably Calculon, he's programmed to be a class act !
