  1. Hello All, My 4k HMI went down and now I need to replace it with a different light. Which has more light output a 9 light maxi or a 2.5 hmi? Thank you, Paul
  2. Hello I'm an MFA film student looking for an advanced cinematography workshop, hopefully in LA but I'm willing to go other places. I've already looked at Maine Media and the ASC Masterclass. Any other good options? Thank you for your time, Paul
  3. Check out my new reel. I'm a cinematography specialist starting my second and final year in the FSU MFA film program. Comments appreciated. https://vimeo.com/103848197
  4. Here is the info if you do not look at the Prezi. T stop: 4 ISO: 800 Middle Grey: 25fc Key: 50fc Fill: 40fc Edge: 100fc
  5. Hi. I am an FSU film student. Please check out my Prezi http://prezi.com/pavuo10aiko8/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy and let me know if you can think of a better lighting plan for the large room on the overhead I have.

  7. I will be shooting in zero degree weather for 3 weeks in mountains elevated 15 - 20 thousand feet on the 7d and my camera operator will be on the 60d. There will be issues consisting of condensation due to the cold and warmth indoors, and battery issues. Will there be issues with the elevation? As for audio, what is a good mic to use? Will the Rode video mic and the video mic pro work? Also will a Glidecam work or will the oil on the bearings freeze? Lastly, what are your best tips on shooting in cold weather? Thank you.
  8. Please take a look at the cinematography of this film and let me know if you have any advice on how to get better shots or how to tell a better story visually. Thank you. https://vimeo.com/54423274
  9. This summer I will be shooting a documentary film in Cambodia on the Canon 7D. I need to protect it from the rain. Any advice?
  10. https://vimeo.com/47797748 I make still and motion pictures. I study at Southeastern University. I have worked on music videos, documentaries, and narrative films. I have shot on cameras such as the Canon 7D, RED One, and RED Epic. paulztackett@gmail.com imdb.me/paultackett

  12. I really like the results of Technicolor's Cinestyle picture style for the canon dslrs. It gives a lot of leverage for grading. The thing that sucks though is that there is more noise than usual because of it. I currently use final cut x (let the booing commence) and am looking for a plugin that reduces this noise. Any suggestions (besides switching to a different program)? Thanks for your time
  13. http://vimeo.com/paultackett/demoreel2012 Let me know what you think.
  14. Don't miss out on the upcoming documentary film about 3 diverse people groups in Tanzania, including the Wataturu tribe, one of the last remaining tribes in Tanzania. https://vimeo.com/47303325 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2321858/
  15. Always looking forward to the next project! http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5113953/resume
  16. I'm shooting for a month in Tanzania. Please give me your best advice and must knows.
  17. It was the screw on kind and it was a variable nd as well. That may have done it I suppose.
  18. What do you think about this? https://vimeo.com/41688161
  19. Ah ok. Yeah could have been the Nd I had on it
  20. https://vimeo.com/39582627 Check out seconds 19 and 20 in this video. There is almost a duplicate image of the guy and its as if the image was duplicated and had a low opacity added to the video. I shot this on the 7d and it may be the lens (stock) or it could have been the editor, final cut. Any idea? This has shown up in another one of my videos under the same circumstances so its not a first.
  21. I just finished shooting a feature on the RED one; I learned that pretty quickly. In a few days I will be shooting a feature on the Epic. Anyone have some quick tips of the most important things to know about the Epic?
  22. Great advice, very true for working with any camera. Thanks for the help.
  23. Do you have to format the harddrive on a red in order to get a high frame rate and aspect ratio? Example: I want to shoot at 120 fps but this is only available at 2k ana or lower, do I have to format the harddrive before shooting thus making it a scheduling issue because of the amount of harddrives we have?
  24. What is the best way to get focus on the RED? Measuring, or focus overlay, or focus assist? Or another option?
