  1. What do you guys think about a gimbal on a hostess tray? I have dialogue scenes and I want drivers and passenger side 2 shots. The car will be up on a process trailer but I'm wondering about road vibration. I'm planning to do a hostess tray or similar setup with my key grip. Will hard mounted be stable enough? Or will I need to put a gimbal on the hostess tray? Wondering what you guys think..
  2. Looking for s2/s3 Panchros in good shape. Let me know what you have. Set or singles. Thanks! david@daviddp.com
  3. Good looking work. Can I ask what your taking lenses were on 4773km? Also whats the widest taking lens you can get with this setup? Thanks
  4. Thanks Bruce! Great call. Are there speed issues with flying the black cloth, lighting frames etc.. Its basic dialogue, but wondering if theres a speed threshold to be aware of...
  5. Hello all, I've got a dialogue scene in a car and for several reasons we're thinking renting a process trailer would be the best approach. It'll be my first time using one however I've filmed several times out of trucks with jibs. Just wondering what pitfalls we might run into. Its a Day scene. It'll be a simple rural 2-lane road (two people on a road trip). They each have lines and we're thinking of standard driver side window, reverse from passenger side. Possible 2-shot from hood and maybe some coverage from behind with cam in the back seat. It'll be a single cam shoot I'm thinking we'll be on alexa mini or red with an angenieux 16-42 or zeiss 15.5-45 for our shots. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

  7. I'm glad I found this thread as I've been thinking these things for quite some time now. I couldn't agree more with David Mullen in that a movie is not made by the lens choice. I've felt for way too long that too much emphasis is put on the tools/equipment/sensor/lenses while far less discussion is focused on the art and what is actually being captured. I think this is because its much easier and quantifiable to measure lens sharpness/CA/distortion/warmv.cool etc... I think this is a fault that happens in cinematography, because the very nature of DP work is to blend artistic visuals with technical camera work. The debate becomes more obvious and ridiculous when you compare to other mediums. Is a carpenter that much better because he uses Dewalt over Makita? Is a chef that much better if he chooses a Bosch stove over Kitchenaid? Is a painter that much better if he chooses hogshair brushes over acrylic? Is a guitarist that much better if he chooses Gibson over Fender? the tools have to be good enough (cant make gorgeous work out of nothing), but I do feel there is a threshold where it caps out. For a while I've wanted to shoot a spoof scene with an imaginary Picasso and Monet arguing over which bristle brush is superior. I agree with David that Emmanuel Lubeszki will be equally effective with Ultra Primes or Zeiss Standard Speeds or Hawk Vantage '74s. Just my 2 cents...
  8. Thanks for the feedback guys. I may have to go with the multiple CTO/S route. Yeah I've been looking at domestic bulbs that appear to be in the 2400k-2600k range. Amazon has some fun dimmable LED amber 2400k filament style 60w bulbs that may work well for practicals on set... Just wanting something with more firepower for keylight/booklight use...
  9. Hi everyone, I've got a project and I'm looking to match color tones to the warm "filament bulb" look. Looking to take 5600k LEDs and work in that realm. I've been playing around with CTO, but I'm curious if anyone else has found something that works? Not sure where filament bulbs land on the Kelvin scale but it doesn't appear to be 3200... thanks!
  10. Hello everyone, I've got a director requesting anamorphics with the most about of breathing. He likes it for a stylistic choice matching the script. We're interested in Kowa, but I thought I'd put feelers out there for others people have used? Specifically looking for anamorphics right now, but I'm open to spherical if someone can throw out a good idea... Thanks!!
  11. Thanks for the feedback Robin and Stuart. Thats good to hear that stadiums are changing over. Nice to get a nod from the lighting designers for the camera people. I guess I'll play when I get there on the scout and see what the damage is. Its in the US and hoping to shoot 120fps and up to 240fps. I was hoping to get to 300fps, but maybe we should keep it at 240 to help with the 60hz math. I'll update you guys on what I find. cheers!
  12. Howdy all, I've got a project at a stadium coming up and we're looking to get some shots that look like this: The entire project is high speed (120fps to 300fps) on an Epic Dragon. I plan to bring Hive lighting for our subject. But I'm wondering about the practicals within the stadium. We're scouting several possible locations, but in my experience, you just wont know what flickers until you boot up the camera and inspect the damage. I'm not on a Roger Deakins budget of relighting the entire arena :) Does anyone have thoughts or ideas to counteract the potential flicker? I'd love to see the background (not turn them off and go dark), but I dont need the seats brightly lit. Just some detail in the shadows out there. And of course the dramatic look of them as practicals inside the frame.
  13. These are in excellent condition. Purchased and they've sat on my shelf in original box and packaging. Flawless glass with no scratches. I just don't use them like I thought I would. $350 each retail. $250 each or all 3 for $700 Paypal with free CONUS shipping. david@daviddp.com for quickest response. note: these are 4x4 not 4x5.65
