  1. thanks for the input. Will probably go with the fs7 and have the gh4 on the drone fro now. And if I have a good year I'll get the RAVEN ;) thanks guys
  2. dear fellow(more experienced) cinematographers if you had the choice between buying the fs7 or fs5 with the Atmos for external 4k what would be your choice(price would be about the same at least here in Switzerland) I mean for just hd the fs5 is perfect when it comes to size(I own a ronin and a drone) and the picture is stunning but 4k is not acceptable. Fs7 is the whole package fot its price range. What would you recommend for someone that wants to be able to deliver very good 4k but also has to consider size and shoots a lot of project in HD? fs5 with Atmos, Fs7 with GH4 or... Thanks for your input Dan
  3. Hey Stephen what's up

    Awhile back you posted on my post about DP's in Switzerland and I was wondering how u do it. Are u a freelancer or do you work for TV?

    Thanks for the answer.

  4. ok after my last reel was ripped apart :unsure: I worked on my new one. I updated my reel and am now anxious what you think about this one. I tried to follow the advise you gave me and hope it turned out a little better. Let me know what you think thank you D.D.
  5. good points Adrian. Because the whole feel of the movie is a mix of comedy and a little horror I will try to get a more darker, scary dream sequence. After thinking about it the color would not be a good fit because he just found out that his hot neighbor is eating people and now he is dealing with that new fact in his dream. Und Alex haha a dwarf à la Living Oblivion;) Ich wünschte mein director hätte an das gedacht.
  6. Dear fellow Cinematographers I was just wondering how you guys approach lighting for a dream sequence? I have a shoot coming up with a nightmare scene where a guy dreams that his admired girl sleeps with his best friend and they eat him in the end. I was thinking getting some smoke(of course) in, a lot of different colors, wierd camera angles and movements. Or maybe instead of different colors just keep it very dark and mysterious, just highlight what's important. Do you guys have any specific tips of how to light for a scene like that? I apreciate your help D.D.
  7. yeah I can see how my intro might be a little too much for a cine reel. Will keep it simple next time!
  8. Thanks for taking the time Tom. I see what you mean and will defenetly change most of this reel. Especially the stuff that is too dark. Reasons why I chose some shoots was simple because I have not shot a whole lot yet but like you suggested I also will make it shorter so I can choose more carefully what shots will make it in the reel. I agree with everything but the music:) but that is a taste thing I guess. Everyone critiquing my reel said about what u said but you are the 1st one that doesen't like the music...;) Well anyway thanks again and I hope the next time you will have less to critque... D.D.
  9. It would be very helpful if you guys could kritque my reel. I'm still very inexperienced and was hoping with tips of you I could get better. Thank you so much! D.D. http://vimeo.com/20947242

  11. my bad did not want to post this...
  12. Also am besten gar nicht zurück gehen oder mit genügend Geld für eigene Projekte;) Oder wenn zurück mit einem Auge richtung Deutschland gucken...
  13. What's up everyone I'm currently a student of cinematography and want to start looking for inernships in the beautiful city of LA. Are there any people out there who can help me to get my feet wet. I'm looking for pretty much everything on set or post production. I would be very thankful if you could refer me to sites and or only tips for a succesfull hunt. Thank you so much... Dan
  14. Hallo zusammen Ich wollte mich nur mal schnell erkundigen wie die Lage für DPs ist in der Schweiz. Ich studier momentan Cinematography in LA und hab mich gefragt wie die Lage in der Schweiz ist. Gibt es überhaupt eine Nachfrage für DPs? Es werden ja nicht sehr viele Filme gedreht. Vielen Dank für die Antwort
  15. Hello everyone I bought myself the 7D a couple of months ago and started to use it for the shorts I'm shooting. The only problem, as all of you probably know, is the audio. A buddy of mine recently told me about the ZOOM H4N. I checked it out over the internet but thought I would ask people who understand something about that before I spend that kind of money. It would be great if you guys could share some of your thoughts on this. thank you D.D.
  16. alright I will stick to my 7D cause shallow dept of field is important in this short and I also know how to operate it. Thanks so much for all the help guys. D.D.
  17. the thing is I already own the 7D but the director I'm working with has the XL H1 and told me I can use it if I want. So we should use the 7D then cause that's what he is going the theatrical look.
  18. Hey guys I'm gona shoot a short film pretty soon and have the possibility to use those 2 cameras. Now the 7D I know what the advantages are especially in low light situations. But with the Canon XLH1 I have no experience whatsoever and it is hard to find a decent short to see how it works in different lighting situations. We will have 3 locations 1 in a board room where we keep the room very dark and misterious, one bedroom sceen also farely dark and one outside in a park. What do u guys think any advise for me. thanks a lot Dan
  19. I just started some weeks ago with the NYFA LA programm. I have to say for me just starting out in that field the school is very good. The teachers here in LA are very good and take a lot of time to explain everything to you. They even take time after school or on weekends to go through stuff u don't understand. Before I came here I also read a lot of mixed reviews and was not sure if its the right thing to do. But after almost 2 months I think I made the right choice. I'm learning alot and the equipment we get to use here is incredible... If anyone has quetions just shoot me an e-mail... so long D.D.
  20. I'm shooting a short in a white apartment in a couple of weeks. The director told me he wants to use the white walls. I just learned(the hard way) that white walls do not really work well on screen. Do u guys have any suggestions on how to light an apartment with white walls? thx Dan
  21. wow thanks so much for all those tipps! The short is called "transfer". That is what is happening in the scene. A envelope gets from one character to the other. I'd like to have a lot of contrast and want to keep one of the characters dark and mysterios. He'll be wearing a hat so I was thinking of keeping his eyes in the dark until the last shot. I have to see what I can do about weting down the parking lot. That realy would be a nice effect. I will get one 2k, a couple of 1ks some 650s and some 250s so I hope I can make something happen. The thing is they won't let me film on the parking lot I wanted to use, so now I have a dark parking lot with no lights. I was thinking of using the 2k to simulate just one street light and have the scene play out under that... If u have an more tipps feel free to coment. Thanks again guys u are awesome! Dan
  22. Hey guys Allright I will shoot a short at night next week. It is the first time I actually will shoot at night so I was wondering if anyone got some tipps and tricks for me? The story will play on a dark parking lot that is just lighted with some street lights. I get, from my school, lights so I will be well equiped. I will be shooting 16mm. Thanks for the help.
  23. I just applied to LA for the cinematography course and was wondering if anyone has updated information about the cours there. And I was also wondering if anyone else is going to NYFA this year?
