  1. From what I saw they were Panavised Angeniuex zooms. On for a day in an EPK role.
  2. The 30-105 actually feels more Cooke-y than a 30-80 Rouge would. If it were a 28-76, I'd think it wouldn't be as harsh as a 30-80, but if it's between the two, I'd go with a 30-105. Aluras have that Zeiss-y sharpness. But a 30-105 with some Hollywood Black Magic or Classic Soft alone would do the trick.
  3. It's definitely running water in the foreground. I feel like I've read somewhere how it was done.
  4. I like a program for Mac called Paid! It's been great for the past year.
  5. I assumed it'd be at a sharp angle into the rag - it'll wrap :)
  6. A lot of folks would bounce 10ks or 20ks into fabric, or you could always hang and shoot those units down through fabric.
  7. Hello, Looking for some grip/electric crew working out of the Boston Area. Short film shooting Sat 15-16 on location in Boston, and 17-19 in Cape Cod. Housing provided for Cape Cod portion. In need of Key Grip, BB Grip and BB Electric. Gear coming up from NY with DP and Gaffer. Also looking for a Camera PA. Rates vary depending on position, non-union short film, but not the worst rates ever. Referrals welcome. gus . sacks @ gmail . com Thanks!
  8. How could you tell while wearing those glasses? In the theater I was in, it looked terrible. The requisite darkness, paired with the also requisite desaturated/green spike, made it look pretty terrible. Grey skin tones, flat lighting... If I have to see a 3D movie I take off the glasses from time to time when I know 3D isn't in play. When I did that, I did really enjoy the look. It looked a little overly sharp, but that could have been the projector. I don't understand why DPs don't stick with post until they're striking DCPs or what have you for 3D exhibition. You'd think they'd mandate some kind of a difference in levels or saturation to offset the glasses.
  9. Get DaVinic Resolve Lite and try and learn it in time. It's a little tricky getting started with the workflow, but when you get the hang of it you'll be able to freely (it's a free program) manipulate the LogC footage and render out TIFFs or MOVs, if your machine is fast enough. No idea about Avid - I've poked around with it, but not to really utilize it.
  10. Marque, What Thunderbolt to PCI adapter do you have? Pretty sure the Sonnet Echo XL hasn't come out yet...?
  11. Use a Red Station to dump the footage to the hard drives. Use RedCine-X to view the R3D files. Super simple. There are a ton of different ways to ingest the media, but once it gets to the computer (or you can review the footage off the SSDs), use RedCine-X or Red Cine Pro.
