DRAGONCON 2014: Dream within a Dream

Shot and Edited by Griffin Cologne

Filmed on Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f/0.95

================================================

This is my first year shooting DragonCon and filming an event of this size!

Thanks to every single person who allowed me to film them, I truly appreciate the patience and enthusiasm of all these wonderful people who make DragonCon such an awesome experience every year!

Scenes appears chronologically, meaning we start with the first shots I filmed on Friday, then continue through Saturday all the way through Sunday night. The finale jumps back in  forth throughout footage from all three days.

Wondering if you “made the cut”? The answer is yes!

If I filmed you at DragonCon you are in this video, NO COSPLAYER LEFT BEHIND!

Finished! I’ve been editing like a mad dog for the last week (20 hours in the last 2 days alone) but my epic DragonCon 2014 video is finally locked, now just waiting for the export to finish so I can put it online. Stay tuned!

Hard at work color-grading and editing hours and hours of footage from DragonCon this weekend! The video will be live by Friday, in the meantime here’s a few snapshots from some of the footage I’ve worked on so far.

The “Linear Launcher”, my video Franken-rig I used to shoot #dragoncon this weekend! Relatively lightweight and subtle, this thing was pretty much attached to my shoulder for the last three days. #dragoncon2014 #bmpcc #blackmagicpocketcinema #blackmagic #rig

I’ve had my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera for a few days now, and I couldn’t be more pleased so far. Amazingly sharp images and 13 stops of dynamic range  for under $1000 ($500 this summer or while supplies last).

I’m still learning it’s quirks, waiting for lenses and accessories to arrive from eBay,  and learning the post process- I don’t have much much experiencing color-grading RAW footage.

That being said, here’s a few test shots I’ve picked up so far, all using available light.

Shot in Pro-Res HQ

Lenses:

Sigma 30mm f2.8

Panasonic 14-45 f3.5

Graded with FilmConvert

Music:

"Knowing Theme" by Alex Wurman

My first demo reel from way back in 2008, this consists of footage from DV, HDV 16mm, and 35mm projects.

Just got this lovely 35mm f1.7 lens from Fotasy. Manual aperture/focus rings and buttery bokeh for just under $30! Ordered last night on a whim and just received it 20 minutes ago, Amazon Next Day Shipping is phenomenal! #bmpcc #blackmagic #blackmagicpocketcinema #camera #lenses #fotasy

Sounds pretty crazy. We’ve seen his endings, in which he makes a mortal kombat movie. It’s supposed to be funny. But seriously. What if every mortal kombat game really is about some movie a guy is making? If none of the events are actually happening in that universe? It’s all just Johnny making some kick ass movies?   
Hear me out.
Johnny Cage is an actor and a world class martial artist. He gets the invitation to the mortal kombat tournament. Once there, he finds out that this is more than some cheap televised karate tournament. 
He is left shocked by everything he goes through and all the things he’s learned, that it gives him the inspiration he needs for a set of blockbuster movies.
He did great with his first, in mortal kombat. Somewhat violent, but good.
From there, he created mortal kombat 2. Despite controversy due to It’s ultra violent scenes, It still remains a classic that everyone loves and remembers.
Then made 3 and it was pretty solid. It’s still discussed and praised almost as well as the first. 
He tried something new with 4, and it wasn’t too bad. But a lot of the fans didn’t accept it as well as Cage thought they would.
He took a break until Deadly Alliance. His main star, Liu Kang, didn’t feel like it wouldn’t be as good a movie (due to his last one), he refused to comeback. This last second decision called for a re-write in which kang is killed off in the opening credits to the movie.
With Deadly Alliance doing so well, and fans asking for more, Cage makes Deception. Originally a plot for a different movie, Cage decided to make some minor changes it, so that his mortal kombat series can continue. Liu Kang, wanting to come back after seeing how well Deadly Alliance did, asks to join the cast again. So Cage brings him back… as a zombie.
At this point, Cage is sorta burnt out on what he’s be making the last several years. He’s tired of it all, Mortal Kombat has long since strayed from its original setting and feel. It’s all a giant mess. Nobody knows who’s dead, alive, good, evil. He would like to send the series out with a bang. So he creates Armageddon. It’s such a big deal, that he re-hires every single actor from every past mortal kombat movie, while also introducing a few new characters. This leaves him with less money than he thought he’d have, so he’s forced to cut back on some key special effects that the actors need. Despite that, Armageddon is successful, and Cage is able to finally drop the curtain on his acclaimed series. 
A few years later, Cage is off somewhere, enjoying retirement when he suddenly realizes “Wow, I could do so much better than Armageddon”. So he decides to do a reboot. But a reboot that makes sense. Only a jackass would just throw away everything he’s worked hard to create. So, he creates the new Mortal Kombat. Gives a timeless classic a new twist. And it works, making him wildly successful again.
Maybe this all sounds silly. But this has always been something I’ve thought about. It’s possible. And it would certainly be an interesting plot twist to Mortal Kombat. 

Mind= blown.
