  5. IMAX Corporation announced it has begun development on a new fleet of next generation IMAX film cameras — building on its more than fifty-year legacy of innovation to meet growing demand for its technology among a broader and more diverse group of filmmakers and artists. In cooperation with Kodak, Panavision, and FotoKem, IMAX will develop and deploy at least four new, state-of-the-art film cameras over the next two years — growing its existing fleet of film cameras by 50% — with the first new camera being put into use by late 2023. The Company is working with the world’s most accomplished filmmakers and cinematographers, including Jordan Peele and Christopher Nolan, to identify new specs and features for the prototype development phase already underway. The next release filmed with the current generation of IMAX film cameras and KODAK 65mm film will be Jordan Peele’s “Nope”, hitting screens on July 22, 2022, while Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” is currently shooting with IMAX Film Cameras. “As IMAX grows as a global platform for entertainment and events, we want to offer more filmmakers, storytellers and artists the opportunity to create with our unrivalled end-to-end technology,” said Megan Colligan, President of IMAX Entertainment. “From our connected global network to IMAX Enhanced for the home, the IMAX Experience provides a more expansive creative canvas than ever, and these new film cameras will enable a new generation of creators along with those who already love working with the cameras a better way to unlock the power of IMAX.” “IMAX film brings images to life,” said Chris Nolan. “From resolution and color to sharpness and overall quality, there is nothing compared to using IMAX film cameras today. Filmmakers and movie fans worldwide should be thrilled at the prospect of new and improved IMAX film cameras – I know I am.” “IMAX is movie magic pushed to its limit,” said Jordan Peele. “When you see a film in an IMAX theater, it feels like you are there. It's complete immersion, and there's nothing quite like it. Shooting with the IMAX Film Cameras gave us a look and feel you can’t get anywhere else. And we are only at the beginning, there's still so much to be explored in this format.” New and improved features being explored for the new IMAX film cameras include a quieter design and a number of useability enhancements. IMAX’s existing fleet of cameras and lenses are also undergoing major upgrades as part of the program. Several industry partners are also joining IMAX in the initiative to strengthen the global and future support of its film cameras: Kodak will offer enhanced technical support and manufacturing of the 65mm film stock. Panavision will continue to provide a global network of service and maintenance for IMAX camera productions worldwide along with new tools and technical support for the cameras. FotoKem will work alongside the IMAX camera and post-production departments to improve production workflows and coordinate lab and post services.

He is the first cinematographer to receive this recognition. “The knighthood was an incredible honor that must be shared with my crew and collaborators.

  8. For that particular client I'd suggest you double your PA rate, at least for a short while, and see how things go.
  9. Cinematography.com sends our deepest thoughts and condolences to the family, friend and colleagues of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Santa Fe New Mexican news article By Victoria Traxler: The director of photography for the feature film Rust, Halyna Hutchins, 42, died at University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, and director Joel Souza, 48, was taken to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, where he was receiving emergency care, the sheriff’s office said. Baldwin is one of the film’s stars as well as a producer. He went to the sheriff’s office willingly and provided a statement to investigators, sheriff’s office spokesman Juan Ríos said. “We’re treating this as we would any other investigation,” Ríos said, adding deputies were still trying to determine whether what happened was an accident. The Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene of a fatal accidental shooting at a Bonanza Creek Ranch movie set Thursday. The prop was fired at Bonanza Creek Ranch, where filming was underway, the sheriff’s office said in an early evening news release. The set was locked down while deputies began their investigation. Attempts to get comment from Baldwin outside the sheriff’s office were unsuccessful. The state film office and the Santa Fe Film Office declined to comment. Deputies were investigating how the incident occurred and “what type of projectile was discharged,” the sheriff’s office said in a release. In a statement, Rust Movie Productions said, “Production has been halted for the time being” on Rust and that “the safety of our cast and crew remains our top priority,” according to Deadline.

  12. How about high temp spray paint?
  13. I could never bring myself to check heavy sandbags on a plane. I'd either bring empty sand bags, hire a local PA with sandbags, bring cloth shopping bags and fill them with something from the location (books/rocks), or bring some straps and use my empty equipment cases to weigh the stands down.
  14. Fortunately LED light quality has come a long way since 2011. Another YouTuber, Andrew Locke, took a color meter to to the 600D at the end of this video:
