Notes from test – Cinevision had the most interesting flare . Ziess are very clean and sharp . Kowa have an interesting look , not a fan of the coating on the lens .

Improvements – test out more of the full set a 25mm and a 50mm from each set, use fairy lights in the back of shot and also use the left and right hand parts of the image more to check on how close you can get an actor to the lens before there face starts to bend .

Arri 650 fresnel – will Diff. set as the key light , and the head torch used to flare the lens .
