  1. GIRLS (chorus) I like to be in America, O.K. by me in America, Everything free in Americaโ€” BERNARDO For a small fee in America. ... Will there be any T-Rex's? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Just kidding. Love Spielberg, eager to see his take on this.
  2. This video might give you some ideas. There is some blocking of light involved. Or try eggcrates in front the diffusion pannel.
  3. Chapter 13 - The Jedi, has the return of a "Clone Wars" & "Rebels" favorite character, Luke Skywalker's apprentice Ahsoka Tano. Some Kurosawa moments in it: Image found on Imgur (https://imgur.com/t/mandalorian/Pdmh2wo) ... Chapter 14, was GREAT, won't spoil anything, just being surprised it was directed by Robert Rodriguez.
  4. I really liked the Bryce directed episode. Can't point the finger why but it looked and felt good. And the last one, Chapter 12, directed by Karl Weathers. Great action, superb chase scene. I am starting to like the show more... ๐Ÿ™‚ ... Since i watched the making of, with the projected environment studio setup, i keep analyzing and figuring out which scene is how done on that stage. ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. I think in a situation as you put it "a script/project you really want to like, but you know it needs work." you should voice your concerns in the initial meetings. Politely you can say what you really like and got exited about the project and then say "however i got couple of issues that seem ________ (illogical, whatever...) to me" and discuss it. I think the idea is not to try to rework the entire thing, just address issues you can't live with and would not like to see your name associated with that construct.
  6. Kodak broke bad? ๐Ÿ˜Ž ... Couldn't help it... It inspired me to do a meme:
  7. Can we expect 12k Jello-Vision fest? :) ... How come mucho "K" image and high DR are the only goals for such a long time and rolling shutter readouts or Global shutter implementation is the last thing in order to be improved upon... ๐Ÿ˜ก
  8. I love them too. Great story and visuals. Some screens: "Ida" (2013)
  9. Dig out your old SD CCD non rolling shutter camcorders and start creating content ๐Ÿ™‚ YouTube follows Netflix by reducing video stream quality in Europe
  10. BTW, i watched recently the new stop motion movie from Aardman Animations - "A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon" (TRAILER) In one scene Shaun and his new Alien friend are in the spaceship and Alien looks after something in a pile of stuff. Various objects start to fly from the pile in front of Shaun and camera, including a Minolta IVF/VF like lightmeter! ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice homage for a filmmaking tool. ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. I have and love my Minolta Auto Meter VF. In my opinion, one of the best overall incident meters. Just incident, no illumination of the screen, no FC/LUX mode. Simple AA battery. A lot of them on ebay for a good price. If you want a new, get the Kenko KFM-1100, the same meter. (After Minolta ended it's manufacturing) ------------------- For combined meter check out Minolta Flashmeter VI. Incident + 1 degree spotmeter, big LCD screen, runs on one AA battery. No FC/LUX mode. Plenty available on ebay in relatively good shape from Japan. It's re-branded version is the Kenko KFM-2100. Discontinued. Successor is the Kenko KFM-2200. Illuminated LCD screen, some added functions, LUX metering (no FC). Still one AA battery.
  12. "Altered Carbon" from Netflix. Now i'm on season 2. If you are into "Blade Runner" - you'll like this. :)
  13. How much is the shutter rolling? ๐Ÿ˜€
  14. Anybody watching? Looks great. Star Trek is getting stylistically and thematically darker. As Ryan Arey from ScreenRant comented on his "Every Easter Egg in Episode 5 + Breakdown & Theories" YT video: "OK... I guess this isn't my mom's Star Trek anymore. People curse, they vape, and **** is probably hold up in her quarters with space heroin" :) Somehow till this episode #5 i had the feeling of things are still "prepping" for the "upcoming" action. Not that there wasn't any, far from it. It comes i guess being used from STNG and Picard in it, where most of the episodes were self contained stories. And here you wait for the next to see the resolution and the new cliffhanger, long story arc of Picard and the rest of the cast... That's alright though. To me the exterior space scenes/ships slightly hing toward the "electronic" look. I might be hairsplitting here. BTW i am not talking practicals vs. CGI here. Just a wish for slight dose of "imperfection" maybe for added realism...
  15. "Blade 2" has nice extras, including some storyboards (If i remember correctly), BTS explanation of lighting of the scene ("1K's up there, 2K gelled with..." etc) and actual BTS shooting of the scene.
  16. Congrats to Samir Ljuma and Fejmi Daut for their ASC award! ๐Ÿ™‚ " The eveningโ€™s presentations began with the first competitive category, the inaugural ASC Documentary Award. This award was initiated this year to recognize exceptional cinematography in non-fiction filmmaking. Joker director Todd Phillips presented the award to Fejmi Daut and Samir Ljuma for their work on Honeyland. " " This was the first ASC Award nomination and win for both the filmmakers. For their work on Honeyland, Daut and Ljuma won the Cinematography Award at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Honeyland has also been nominated in the Best Documentary Feature and Best International Feature Film categories of the 2020 Academy Awards. "
  17. I assume from your comment you haven't watched the video. It is the body, EVF and stuff for that price. Lens is his own or rented, can't remember. It is a fun video for anyone wanting to jump THE camera bandwagon and the "challenges" this massive beast has. :)
  18. I don't know about $$... YouTuber/Cinematographer PotatoJet bought one for ~6000USD :)
  19. Mendes should have gone the Ang Lee route for even more immersion. And BIGGER! 8K 240fps 3D ๐Ÿ™‚ Haven't seen the movie, is on the watch list. ... Without spoiling and all knowing it is one continuous shot, i've seen in the trailer day and night scenes, could somebody describe when does it start and end? Night to Day? 2 hours seems small range to me for realtime(?) transition from night to day...
  20. Just received a link to YouTube where somebody put the entire film. English hard coded subtitles included. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy! Trivia: Almost all spoken language between the main protagonists is not the native Macedonian language. It is Turkish and from what i gathered, between Hatidzhe and her mother even an older Turkish dialect - the mentioned protagonists being part of an ethnicity group.
  21. Two Oscar nominations: Best Documentary and Best International Feature Film (formerly Best Foreign Language Film) ๐Ÿ™‚ IndieWire - Historic โ€˜Honeylandโ€™ Oscar Noms Prove Docs Shouldnโ€™t Just Be Relegated to Doc Category Forbes - โ€˜Honeylandโ€™: The First North Macedonian Film To Receive Two Oscar Nominations
