  1. I know this is a worn out subject. I was also fully aware that I could wait up to two months to receive it. I purchased a pouch from Modular 51 about 3 months ago. I have sent them several emails without response and now when I go to their website... it doesn't work. I'm guessing they don't exist anymore and I should withdraw my payment from paypal. Do any of you know any different? or know different contact info than what was listed on their website?
  2. Thank you but 1" will not work. Even with the thickness of a baseplate a 1" could pass through the wood, especially when drilling through 3/4ply, scags, and cribbing.
  3. I'm pretty sure I'm using 3/4 course thread drywall screws for drilling baseplates into pancakes but I can't seem to find any around town. The standard Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, etc don't have anything shorter than 1" in coarse thread and I am even having a hard time finding anything less than a 3000pc box online. Any ideas?
  4. Full frame is larger than 35mm motion picture stock. 35mm is roughly equivalent to aps-c sensors (7d, 4k red, alexa). The 18mm on a full frame is about 29mm.
  5. This isn't a rant about how certain movies may (or may not) have gotten shafted. It isn't about politics or if your favorite movie/director/etcetc should or shouldn't have been awarded. Anyway, the last three out of four years the Academy Award for Cinematography has gone to films that not only rely on heavy amounts of visual effect supplementation but actually received Oscars for VFX. I in no way wish to belittle the immense talent and dedication that these cinematographers have or downplay their skill or involvement in these projects (the live action elements still being very importa
  6. You can light it however you like, that's where the artistry of being a cinematographer comes in. Before you start asking "how am I going to light this?" you should be wondering, "what am I trying to achieve?" What reason do you have to light? Is it a long scene that needs to maintain continuity? Is there supposed to be light coming from the door? Do you want it to look natural? Maybe you don't even need to light it? People have shot with natural light for decades. If you need a little more guidance it would be helpful to explain what you want, the story or scene and, you know, t
  7. This is a nice tidbit of information to know. Thank you. I would also like to give another "super thank you" to Guy for taking the time to compile and explain all that information. Everyone has been very helpful and I truly appreciate it!
  8. Guy Holt, thank you very much for your time and explanation. It's comforting finding people who so willingly give up this information... and in such a comprehensive manner. I reread your post a few times to make sure I understood the basics/math behind it for future reference and have a few more questions regarding the application of all the information you gave me. By the way, thank you... again. 1. I'm assuming the 2290VA figure isn't applicable for the 575. In trying to understand the power factor more universally beyond the 1200 lamp I tried to figure out how the figure 2290VA c
  9. Rad. That's a definite start.
  10. Hello all, Been lurkin for a while and haven't had a real reason to post yet, but here it is. The situation I was gaffing a short tonight at a very old city apartment. We were outside and had a character climbing through a window. Coincidentally that window was the only place we could run power from so it was going to take a fair bit of time to properly hide the stinger coming out. I was using a 575 and 1200. I knew that the paper amps would clearly be over 15amps, but when doin the math it came out just under 15 (with very very little wiggle room). While not really keen on splitti
