  1. I'm trying to find a B4 to PL Mount Adapter. What I am trying to do is put prime lenses on Viper. Any other suggestions? Possible rental in the Kansas City area would be perfect.
  2. Hello all, I am doing a research paper on Adam Greenberg, ASC. Does anyone have any information I could use?
  3. Thanks. Yeah just keep bumping the fps on the light meter and it should get into shutter speeds.
  4. Here are some examples of silhoettes each exposed differently. This selection is from my own 35mm still photography. I used a Minolta XD11 w/ Minolta lenses. I shot with 400 asa Kodak film and exposed each shot differently.
  5. Blain Brown has a DVD in Motion Picture and Video Lighting (2nd Edition) which has a great section on basic grip tips & tricks.
  6. Put the words "Director of Photography" or "Cinematographer" under your name. It gets the point across.
  7. Backed up onto portable HardDrives from the computer. We backed everything up over night. We also recorded to tape as well on the third episode shoot.
  8. http://www.kansascity.com/238/story/371693.html This should explain more.
  9. The workflow is very unique. You may find this interesting: From my knowledge Richard Welnowski owns the Viper and his mobile setup. The camera is connected to his Ford Explorer! The mobile setup is equipped with dual HD monitors, one for viewing content and the other for controlling DVS Clipster. Clipster is the software he uses to log and capture all the footage, which is ran on his super computer. I forget exactly how many TB he has on his harddrive. But it takes a lot of space to hold all the footage. We recorded at 1080p uncompressed and 4:2:2 for editing.
  10. Check out "Day Under Fire" Nov. 27th 2007 10pm EST on National Geographic Channel Most footage was shot on VIPER (2nd Unit shot with CineAlta). I worked as AC. If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer. Thanks.
  11. I looked at Full Sail before I went to college. I decided to go to school at Savannah College of Art and Design. It's four years here with a bachelors degree. I think Full Sail is 2 years. Make sure you go where you can enjoy living.
  12. I really enjoyed my time working with the Viper. Check out "Day Under Fire" on National Geographic. It airs 10/27/07 at 10p E. All footage shot in HD, most of it is Viper.
  13. I agree. I preparred myself for my first AC job by reading about the job and knowing the camera that I will be working with. We were shooting on Viper and I read the manual before going out on the field... just so I had all the kinks worked out in my head.
