  1. I'm very excited to share this piece I DP'ed a year ago, we all had great time with this one. I'm very interested in learning, so all feedback and insights are welcome. Cheers! I Need My Space is a humorous tale of infidelity, frustration, and ultimately adventure. The story is focused upon the life of elderly engineer, Esko and his unfaithful and nagging wife Tarja. Looking for an escape from a life that is an unsatisfactory mix of dull and painful, Esko decides to build his own rocket ship and blast himself into space. The award-winning independent film was shot over the course of 4 days and with a budget of only €1200. The film will be released for public viewing on June 21st, 2017.
  2. Yep, seems like a credit for a shooting BTS footage. Example this guy is credited as a videographer from Mad Max: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2782007/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cr1046
  3. I have seen multiple IMDB credits of being Videographer on feature film sets. What is it actually? Is it behind-the-scenes camera or what does it mean? Thanks!
  4. Hi, I'm looking for scenes or music videos shot in theater or against red curtains for inspiration. Any suggestions? Thanks :)
  5. Thank you Christopher for this valuable information! I looked up those cheap household fluorescent bulbs (daylight balanced). But I couldn't find any really low CRI bulbs. I also thought about the flickering thing. Why it wouldn't work to put the fluorescent bulbs through dimmers? If I buy fluorescent bulb that says "dimmable", shouldn't that work with flickerbox or dimmers? What would be the best way to get the fluorescent to flicker? To specify the scene more: There are 2-4 flickering fluorescent bulbs hanging on the wall. They will be seen in the frame. So in this case, should I light the interior with fluorescents (kinoflo fixture or separate bulbs?) rigged to ceiling or use c-stand with extension arm. And then use barn doors to block the light from falling to walls? This would give the overall lighting to the scene and combat against the flickering "practical" fluorescents on walls. For lighting the actors. Should I use daylight balanced (like fluorescents) to light the faces or tungsten lights to bring up the blue from other fluorescents in the room or would it go too blue? (If I white balance my camera to tungsten) - Ari
  6. Hi, I'm asking for advice and tips for lighting this scene in large public bathroom. Scene: Large public bathroom with gritty and grunge look. Posters and tags on the walls. Two flickering fluorescents hanging on the wall. Colorful moving disco and club lights shining trough the large window in the bathroom. How I thought I could do it: Put two daylight balanced KinoFlo bulbs (from 4banks) to be hanging on the wall. Also put them through flickerbox. Use some theater lights with color filters through the window. Maybe one HMI also? (Overall blue ambient lighting to the bathroom) There is three actors in the bathroom. I thought I could use tungsten lights to light the actors and put the white balance from camera to tungsten. This way I can make the fluorescents and lights through window seem much more blue. I'm just a student so I may be completely ridiculous with these plans. Advice would be much appriciated.
  7. Hi, I'm currently a student and I did my first interview today. I need your opinions and criticism. I used 4 lights: Key and fill were basic fluorescent daylights with softboxes. As a backlight I used tungsten, dedolight, 100w (dimmed down a bit) As a backgroundlight i used little LED with blue filter on it. The room was very very small, so everything was very tightly placed. And i tried to get as shallow DoF as possible. What you guys think? what should I do differently next time? Is the face underexposed? Link to image: http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/5278/vdk1.jpg
