  1. Hello, I used to be a regular here at cinematography.com; I've since moved away from film as a career and gotten into iPhone development. But I'm posting because my first app is a screenwriting app, and it's live in the App Store! For any writers out there, I'd love to hear what you think. The idea behind StorySkeleton is that you don't want to be doing full-on writing on your phone, it's easier to write in short bursts, quick notes, and reminders for yourself. That's the same reason a lot of screenwriters carry a stack of index cards around with them, so they can jot down plot point
  2. Hi Tim, the picture is of the actual camera. It's from the last time I tried to sell the camera, before I had ever gotten around to installing the TXM-27 tobin crystal sync unit. Since then, the camera didn't sell and a music video project came up, and we ended up shooting most of it at 48fps, so I installed the tobin unit, but it ended up being real finicky. The camera would randomly stop working if I started and stopped the camera rapidly, say if I was checking the loop. Then the camera would then refuse to turn on until I took out the TXM and re-installed the original unit, and after a wh
  3. I've tried to sell this camera before but always seemed to find a project for it right when I was about to sell. Well, now I've gotten married, and I have both no time for movies, and no money for rent. Since this time I need to sell no matter what, I put it on eBay, where it's available for bidding at http://www.ebay.com/itm/170691080751?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_500wt_1377 If you're LA local, feel free to come by and take a look at the camera.

  4. now listed on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...E:IT&ih=007 need to sell before school starts!
  5. I know I'm a horrible businessman, but personally I think at this stage he should stick to video, and lots of it :ph34r: film is the next step and I don't think he's there yet...Sean I think you should pick up a decent 3ccd miniDV camera, it's the best way there is to start learning today. And while you're learning, tape stock is cheap.
  6. Yeah I've got the glass that goes in front, took it off to see the lens better. The motor I got new off Ebay, still in original box that shipped from Tobin Cinema Systems, still with the instructions and in original wrapping, it's the TCS TXM-27.
  7. I do love that camera (sob,) but I don't foresee shooting more 16 anytime soon, and will start submitting to festivals in the next couple months, and I need a new car, and I'm currently unemployed... I put some pics up here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidsweetman...57606897170122/

  9. movies is the best. i'd love to see anyone's photography. goes without saying that cinema is art, but I wanted to see the other stuff. think it adds an extra dimension. notice the "etc." in the original post...
  10. In the past there have been 'what is your other art?' threads, and recently there have been art-inspiration threads; these have gotten me interested in actually seeing your guys' own paintings, storyboards, drawings, sketches, etc. C'mon, bust out the old digital camera and portfolio, it'll only take two seconds. an accident titled this "to be right-handed with two left hands" ink and soy sauce on paper
  11. gallery art vs. street art stuff sucks on both sides, but there's also stuff flat-out amazing on both sides. Why should disgraceful lighting be avoided?
  12. In the past couple days I've become immersed in anything I can find about David Choe: http://www.davidchoe.com/ really amazing stuff...
  13. I don't know, I tend to think rules are overstated; there's something incredibly appealing to me about photographs or video taken by amateur photographers with absolutely no knowledge of the rules of composition. Technically they're "bad," but there's something else in them - photography completely uninhibited by "do this, don't do that."
  14. Well...I'm a relatively inexperienced student, and I'd be wrong trying to talk "above" the answer, so take my pretentious musings with a grain of salt...but composition directly involves the "frame," and as such it is the only necessary part of filmmaking. The audio can also be part of the frame, but a film can exist as a film apart from sound, so it isn't essential. frame is the physical requirement of art, truth is the metaphysical. Anything in a frame can be "art" but it only becomes art in my opinion when the other side is there as well. Because of the highly subjective nature of ae
  15. I'd probably start by calling up Kodak and Fuji and asking...have you tried that?
