  1. Check out Matthew Whatley, the "tax ninja." He gives free seminars sometimes at places like BAVC on how to file taxes as a creative freelancer and specializes in exactly that sort of thing. http://taxninja.com/ Maybe a couple years late on your post, but should someone stumble upon this down the line I think they might benefit from it. -Rob
  2. Arthur Freyer sounds like a gem. Wish I got to work with him before he passed. http://www.freyerlighting.com/WebSitePages/Shop/Mottoes.html

  3. As of today I'm a registered business. Thanks city of San Mateo!

  4. Hmm I have access to a friend's p2 cam with dual media slots which I think are hot-swappable. Maybe I could borrow it from him and hot swap/dump continuously, at the risk of bumping the camera while monkeying with the cards. So there's a good freebie option. Thanks! Renting a pix 240 might not be a bad way to go. Didn't know sound devices made non-sound devices, thanks Robert. I'm in the market for a picture monitor too, but maybe the pix is more for recording and engineering than aesthetic monitoring. But that's another topic. In any case: I'd rather use the recorder than try to hot-swap p2 cards, but this is a zero-budget thing, so maybe I'll schedule production around a good influx of receivables. Thanks again gents!
  5. Odd request, but here goes: An upcoming script calls for the ability to record at least half-decent looking 720p at 24p for...3 hours straight, no cuts. One locked-off shot down a beach (powering everything is another question entirely) that has to just roll for 3 hours. This is not for timelapse: It needs to actually roll 24p for three hours continuously. What sort of camera (plus external recorder, potentially) system might you aficionados recommend for a task like this one? I have a 7D at my disposal, but I figure that won't do me much good. Probably looking at something with at least SDI out, wonder if there's a way to go direct to some spinning disk array or something... It's basically gonna be a parody of those YouTube videos that are just stock footage, like "3 Hours Tranquil Beach Waterfall Blue Skies," but in a dark demented sort of way. Thanks for trying! -Rob
  6. Hey all- Sometimes whilst reading AC I'll find that gaffers on bigger sets put together sweet wireless iPhone-controlled DMX systems. Have any of you done this yourselves, on smaller budgets or for smaller sets? I think it would be really cool to have at my disposal. Here's a post I just put together on my website about it: http://robertboscacci.com/2014/02/11/dmx/ Let me know if I'm just wasting my time/money. -Rob
  7. Rusalen: Thank you! But I believe that there is plenty more good work in this forum!
  8. We just adhered a GoPro to a handle of Jack Daniels and let it take us. http://vimeo.com/79434828 Let me know what you think, or if you have any questions.
