  1. Hey Justin, You are correct, A slate is just a title screen that precedes the spot. This can be an animated logo that then resolves to the needed info or just plainly a text screen that has info like: Client Name Title of Spot Date Length of Spot ISCI code etc. The ISCI code is made up of letters and numbers and is between 8 - (and I think 16 characters)? I usually shoot for between 8 and 12. When we create them for our spots, we try to have the ISCI contain parts of the clients name and title of spot. Also if the spot is an HD spot, the ISCI code should end in H For example I just uploaded a completed spot to NBC Sports Net this morning with this info: Client: Abby’s Title: Abby’s Offer Two 2019 Date: 3.11.19 Length: 30 ISCI: ABBYTWO2019H Hope that helps!

  2. I can also vouch for DCP-O-MATIC. I successfully converted a 21 minute short film that I had shot and then screened the DCP file at one of our local independent theaters to check the quality before sending out to film festivals for presentation. I was surprised at how easy it was to make a DCP file. Good luck with your film!
  3. And Here's the trailer for the short film Pendulum
  4. Thanks Guys! Yes Brenton, I do get up to PDX occasionally. I’m originally from there. The Ad agency and Production company I work for has clients up in that part of the state so we do go up there and shoot on occasion. Pendulum was shot in both Portland and in Eugene.
  5. Here’s a few frame grabs from a short film I recently shot. shot with the Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6k camera and a set of Rokinon cinema prime lenses (24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm) as well as a couple of Canon lenses (100mm macro and 24mm pancake) For the most part I was pleased with how the camera and lens package performed. The one big issue we ran into early was, in low light situations (which the majority of the film takes place) the Ursa Mini had noticeable FPN at both ISO 800 and 1600. In order to combat this I was forced to shoot a lot of the film with ISO 400 to drop the noise floor which meant I needed more lights to be able to get a proper exposure. As a team we had to work creatively to come up with solutions but I think in the end we were pretty pleased with the final images. Cheers! Ian
