  1. Really nice work AJ! I noticed some noise in certain scenes. Just curious, where you rated at ISO 5000 during those scenes? What did you rate the camera throughout the film? I think it looks great for having a half ton (at most) grip and electric package. My favorite scenes are at the end with the two kids at the warehouse. The lighting is fantastic!
  2. Hey Bradley, I feel you're on the right track and you're figuring out what you need to be successful. That being said you don't need to go to film school to make it. There are plenty of DPs who did not go that route and are creating incredible imagery. I did attend film school and I wouldn't have it any other way. I wouldn't be where I am if it weren't for film school. It's been the connections that have presented opportunities but I'd like to think it's my work ethic and (I hope) my personable nature that has maintained my relationships with producers, clients, directors, other DPs

  4. Hey everyone, I just wanted to share some of my favorite stills from a short film I shot over a year ago. We shot on 16mm 1.33:1 aspect ratio on Kodak 7219 500T Vision 3 on an Aaton XTR. The film is about this man who has confidence issues and decides to get a new ego. The page count was around 24 pages and we had 6 shooting days and I believe we had a 6:1 shooting ratio. This was the longest page count I had shooting on film. Our lighting package consisted of (2) 4x4 kinos, (1) litemat 2L, (1) joker 800, and (2) tweenies. It was a small shoot and I'm proud of the outcome and the work
  5. If you have a budget, why not shoot a test with 16mm B&W footage and digital footage with grain added to it. I understand money can be an issue, but if you can shoot on film, why not do it? Most camera rental houses should cut you a deal with rentals because at this point 16mm/super 16mm cameras are big paper weights. Also some post houses should also cut you a deal if you have a feature you plan on scanning. Hope this helps!
  6. Hey Miguel, That's all I needed to know! Thanks for the quick reply, I really appreciate it!
  7. Has anyone operated with an easyrig and serene arm without a gimbal? If so has the serene arm helped reduce the side to side motion when going hand held? I plan on operating a Millenium XL2 and am hoping to reduce some of the hand held look. I just don't want the hand held look to be too intense if that makes sense. Thanks! -Mike
  8. Hey guys! Definitely would love some feedback on my latest narrative reel! Thanks!!
  9. I'd prefer a camera with a tap just so I have a monitor for the director. Thanks for the quick reply!
  10. Hey Robert, Does the camera come with a video assist? -Mike
