  1. Hello, So might be having a total brain-fart on how I could do this but for some reason I can't figure it out at the moment. So I have a shoot soon and the DP will be working on the Alexa Mini with Cooke s4is. On this particular shot, most likely a 50mm, the distance from the nearest to the farthest subject is about 6 feet (as seen from the image below). We have a couple Arri Skypanels and (1) M18 available, along with some smaller 300w lights or so available for motivated practicals and such. My question is, the DoP and I want this distance to be in focus (split diopters not an option, a little too extreme for situation). How can I figure out ahead of time which aperture we should shoot at so I will know if we have strong enough lights available that we might be able to get close enough to the actor without blinding the set with light? I don't want to assume we'll have to go all the way to an f/16 or f/22 if we don't have to. Thanks!
  2. I am curious what the status is on the next AC Manual edition (Previous one written by Michael Goi). I would like to purhcase the book butI’m just wondering if I do so, if the next one is going to be coming out soon if I should just wait it out and buy the new one? Thank you!
  3. Hello all! So a client of mine wants to exercise the idea of filming on acceptable cameras in order to possible push the show to Netflix and other channels if they decide to. I came across this: https://partnerhelp.netflixstudios.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000579527-Cameras-and-Image-Capture and this: http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?159032-4K-Cameras-Approved-by-Netflix&s=329bf83c6478e836c5502202ab983083 My question is, how strict are they on recording formats and settings? I plan to shoot with a Canon C300 or so. If anyone has any insight on this, please let me know! Thanks! Film long and prosper!
  4. Hello all, I'm meeting Dante Spinotti (LA Confidental, XMEN Last Stand...) and Mandy Walker (Hidden Figures, Australia..) next week. If you have any questions for them specifically let me know and I'll post them later!
  5. Found the solution guys! Found specific wipes for the sensor. Thank you for your comments & suggestions! Happy filming!
  6. Landon, yes it's the background overexposure that's the problem. When I shot again this weekend I ended up shooting at a f/16 and my zebra stripes didn't show anything so it was an improvement. If I have issues again I'll talk to the lighting tech. Thanks!
  7. Hi all, So I’m working with a Panasonic 4K res AG-DVX200 camera for a show (shooting on to a stage of live dancers). The issue I’m having is the backdrop is white and slightly reflective. Even with zebra stripes on to try to maintain proper exposure, I’m still having trouble keeping proper exposure on dancer’s faces. What do you recommend? The lights color temp has to stay the same which is around 4750k and same with camera. What can I do on camera side to help facilitate this? I’m usually between a f/6 & f8 and need to stay in-between there. My co-worker was asking me for suggestions and suggesting possibly a LUT? Would this solve this problem? I will get a freeze frame from the Samurai Blade this weekend. Maybe that'll help. Let me know if you need any other info.
  8. Update: it's a smudge. Any add'l suggestions?
  9. I have this equipment yes, but it's NOT on the front of the sensor, it's on the back of the sensor. Should have clarified that
  10. Hello all, So my friend owns an Sony A7s ii and it has an issue. As you can see from the videos and pictures it seems that there seems to be lint/dust on the sensor. What would be the best way to clean that out manually. I have camera cleaning gear of my own. I've posted a dropbox shareable link because they're too big if files. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/m3z230zcdhos5fp/AADv5uaVWnCQyEm6hbzSdfwxa?dl=0 Any suggestions would be great! Thank you!
  11. Recently went to ASC to see Jules. Great guy! I'm on the Deakins forum as well but haven't visited it in a while. I'll keep on the look out for more events and forums like that. Thanks for the advice!
  12. It's the "going on set" relationship that I'm in search for: To be under someone's wing. Yes, this is a FANTASTIC resource and I use this website a lot. It's been very helpful don't get me wrong. I'm just more curious about the mentoring of one-on-one and in-person scenario. I figured it probably wouldn't' be for a whole show (especially a feature). Oh I see what you mean, good point. I don't wish to "jump the line" but I'm aware that this is one way that people have learned from DPs. So maybe I should take a step back. What advice do you have for reaching out to DPs for advice or questions even if I don't personally know them (like my Script Supervisor example)? Email? Suggest to meet for coffee? Etc
  13. Hello all, So as I talk to my friends and coworkers who are DPs and have talked to more ASC members about their beginnings, one common trait I have come across is that they have a mentor. Some have been taken under the mentor's wings by either the MENTOR asking them or vice versa. I want to hear from any other DPs and their experience with this? I was talking to a Script Supervisor on set recently and she was telling me that she emailed Script Supervisors that she hasn't even met and some have responded (union members) answering her questions and offered her to learn from them (as in to additionally come on set). Are there any experiences like this from any of you that you can share? What are some different ways to obtain and seek a mentor without coming off "forcefully" or "desperate" to get into the business? Thank you!
  14. Turns out I'm going to another event instead :/ Sorry man! Those would be good to find out though!
  15. I have the opportunity to meet ASC Gregory Middleton "Game of Thrones" DP tomorrow. I thought I might reach out to this forum and see if any of you have any specific questions for him and I'll post them after.
