  1. Hey guys, just thought it would be great to hear from all you out there, what's your favourite thing about working in film industry? What's been the best thing you have worked on? Cheers, Jordan ^_^
  2. Hi Satsuki, this is an old post and I have found the solution. I have purchased a 100mm to 75mm adapter ring for my 75mm Sachtler head to fit onto the end of the jib (which is 100mm). I didn't intend to mean I was putting the jib on my tripod legs. I have bought Kessler's heavy duty tripod for that. Cheers
  3. Thanks for the your response Chris, I'll take it with a grain of salt and look up some other Google pages to validate it. Cheers
  4. Hey everyone, The safety induction is coming along well. A lot of your ideas have been discussed with my client. We are finishing up the draft and will soon head off to make up some film permits, book gear etc. However, there is a new shot where we require a patient being hooked up for ECG. Now, this part is easy, however they also want a defib in action. What is the best way to do this? Would we require and actor to fake the move or hire a special effects team to build some sort of hydraulics under the bed? The shot will be positioned like the image attached. Thanks in advance!
  5. Haha I do like the idea of humour in that video Luke, however I don't think my clients will want to go to that extreme level... as much as the employees would be entertained. ;) Thanks Jim I understand what you're saying, we have incorporated some real life footage of severe accidents with light graphic content so they can truly see the dangers of electricity. We are doing this so the induction video can be remembered visually by the audience if something were to go wrong when working with electricity. Have you got any more ideas Jim? Cheers, Jordan
  6. Thanks all for your help, I ended up getting the 75mm to 100mm adapter from Kessler. http://www.kesslercrane.com/product-p/100095.htm Cheers, Jordan
  7. Hi Brian, I originally posted this post in the Camera accessories forum, however I meant to post it to this one. I cannot figure out how to delete a post, if you could let me know that would be great. Cheers
  8. Hey guys, I am wanting to purchase the Kessler Pocket Jib for my 5D Mark III. I am ordering a Sachtler ace accessories (matte box, follow focus and base plate) for my Sachtler Ace M tripod. Now, the crane only lets 100mm heads into the bowl, but the Sachtler head of mine is only 75mm. So is it possible to use the Sachtlers base plate and slide it into a 100mm Manfrotto head so I can still use all the accessories? Thanks!!

  10. Thanks Michael for the response! I loved that commercial / promo. It was completely different to what I expected to be. Also, I loved the cinematography. Hopefully I can get a discount from the rental company so I can use some lights too! ;) I know what you mean by seeing the same skate videos repeatedly...Youtube is a great example especially when it comes to fan videos. Thanks for the heads up!
  11. HI Yash, we are still in the scripting stage as there is over 30 pages to be storyboarded. It is due in late September so I'll make sure to let you know (and others who have asked above) when it's done. I'm glad to hear you're in a similar situation too! What is yours for?
  12. Hey guys, I'm looking at making an indoor skatepark commercial / promo for some editing practise. The indoor skatepark invites BMX bikes, scooters and skateboards to ride on ramps and do flips into a large foam pit (their main selling point over local competitors). I aim not to include voiceovers but will have music. What do you guys think would be a good 30 second commercial or 1 minute promotional video? I had an idea of perhaps start off with a focus pull of a skateboard & then some tracking shots of empty ramps with no one on it ... then on the beat that the music starts, all the shots will have people riding at the park? What are some of your ideas that you think would make a great commercial / promo if it were to be on their website / Facebook page helping them advertise? Thanks everyone, Jordan Watson
  13. Thanks for your response Romain, I agree with you in that there is an intense soft light source above them. It's a beautiful shot in the movie.
  14. Thanks Aapo, I'll do that for this setup. Cheers, Jordan Watson
