  1. I'd love to get feedback from other industry professionals on my new demo reel! Thanks! Mark
  2. Looking to do a long truss mounted tracking shot for a show I'm working on in NYC. Can't seem to pinpoint what a system like this is called and where to rent in NYC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKcBNbRSdyI#t=14 Anybody have any suggestions?
  3. I've just finished up my second demo reel ever for 2013 and I'd love to get the communities feedback. I'm working more in the direction of narrative and commercial work. Here is my reel: Let me know what you think!
  4. Thanks for the replies everyone. We ended up having no issues rigging them overhead. To play it safe I didn't have them pointing more than 50-60 degrees down. Here is a behind the scenes time lapse of part of the setup: https://vimeo.com/62428595 I learned a lot from this setup. If anyone is interested I can post what I learned. Looking forward to working on more larger sets like this!
  5. I'm looking to get some advice for an upcoming music video shoot I'm doing. We are lighting a large space (gymnasium). I've arranged the following gear: 2x 1.2K HMI Par, 4x 575w HMI Par, 2x 200w Joker Bug. I'm planning on doing some overhead rigging with 4 of the HMIs PARs, 2 of which will be shining through a 20'x20' silk. I'm wondering if there are any restrictions/issues with using HMIs in overhead lighting rigs. I know right off the bat, the ballasts will be an issue, and I don't think we'll have long enough header cables to make it to the ground. We'll have to rig the ballasts up in the grid. Is there anything else I should be aware of?
  6. I saw this awesome video the other day by Garrett Shannon and I'm trying to figure out how he lit the interview/talking head portion. It's very clean and very soft, and I would like to figure out how to light something like that. If anybody has any idea please share it here! BTW you can watch the video online here: https://vimeo.com/51228350 Cheers, Mark
  7. Hey Everyone, I was wondering if I could get some feedback on the lighting and camera movement in this short film I shot. I'm fairly young and new to the industry. I've learned through on set experience and from reading as well as watching films. I must say american cinematographer magazine has been one of the most helpful resources i've ever used. Anyways, back to the point here is the film. 95% of the shots are mine, except for a couple cut aways in the restaurant scene. Its online here: http://markaklassen....r-film-festival Thanks so much! i look forward to collaborating more with this community.
  8. I've just finished my first demo reel online: check it out here I'm looking for feedback on the reel itself and some advice on the industry. I know its hard to share where I'm at, but I'm looking on advice for my next step in the industry. This is my second year out of high school. I choose to not go film school, but right now I'm a little lost in what my next step should be and am second guessing my decision to go to film school. I feel like it would help me out in networking and meeting people. I want to do more dramatic work in short films and music videos. What are your thoughts?
