  1. I've made my own solar generator for doing this. It works wonderful for remote field locations. You can get a pre-built one from GoalZero or a few boutique makers. You're basically limited by panels you can carry. The generator should be lithium ion based so it's lighter vs the lead acid battery ones.
  2. Thank you! Oooooh the blood. I actually did this one to get over my phobia of working with blood on set (continuity, resets and clean up). I agree it was too cherry in tone. Blood is an art form like all the other jobs for sure! I missed the gun barrel cap. 😞 Thanks for checkin it out!
  3. Ok, I was going to put it on Vimeo, but they are being a bit greedy IMO with their subscription scheme, so here is a link for the youtube! Also, the Amazon version is actual 5.1 surround sound whereas youtubes is only stereo.
  4. It's true, you have to either be a prime member or have a friend who is and watch it with them. I completely understand not everyone has Prime (although I was VERY surprised at how many people actually do!). I'll be releasing the film on Vimeo shortly so that everyone can see without the hassle of commercialism. Honestly it was an experiment to see what the returns for an Amazon release could be. Problem was I took to long in post and they dropped the rate from $0.15 per hour to $0.04 per hour streamed.
  5. I got my short film up on Amazon for the US and UK. Honest critiques welcome!!!
  6. Well, I watched this a couple months ago and I'm excited for the second part to come out! Liquid cooling a RED seems plausible.
  7. My buddy got one of these. We've shot a few commercials with it so far. Great image once you get to it. The menu system is AWFUL! I love having both HDMI and HD-SDI for outputs. The screen is a shitshow so make sure you have an external monitor. We are planning on shooting a pilot this summer so he wanted 4K. Overall the camera has impressed me.
  8. One thing my mentor has taught me is being able to scale your crew / budget is a very important part of thriving in this business. +1 on the no slate being a total buzzkill!
  9. I just watched "Get Low" last night with Duvall, Spacek and Murray. The house on fire during the intro as well as the man falling out look too real to be CGI. Any guesses or knowledge of how they got this amazing shot?
  10. I've been shooting with my MKI since 2013. It's been bulletproof for me. I've figured out that the sensor likes a lot of light, meaning expose as hot as possible while keeping your highlights barely in bounds. I've gotten clean footage @ ISO 5000 using this technique. Also, be careful when shooting in C-LOG, much more prone to shadow / sensor noise with this profile. The native ISO is 850 so I try my utmost to keep it there and the shutter @ 180 degrees. This just leaves the aperture and NDs for setting exposure but it's plenty.
  11. Negative fill helped me while shooting up in the Pacific Northwest. The diffusion nearby was great if the sun escaped the clouds and trees.
  12. I hadn't noticed the Mole Tener LED Phil, that thing is a BEAST!!! I've been extremely happy with my Aputure C300d since last November. I've made my own batteries for it and I can get some crazy long run times now.
  13. My "One Man Band" shoots often range from super simple, quick and dirty B-roll all they way to full interviews at multiple locations. Properly assessing what might be needed versus what my back can handle carrying, setting up and breaking down in the given time range is a skill I'm still developing. I'm a big fan of keeping a schedule and I really hate being the crazy guy futzing around with gear. I've got an Aputure 300d that can be overkill for a key, but once I put the softbox with grid on it there isn't anything that the dimmer can't knock the stuffing out of. That light runs on big V-mounts but worth it for the speed and portability factor. I also have two 3.5x6 foot 5in1 pop up panels plus a couple cstands with boom arms that allow me to diffuse/flag/bounce the sun or other environments easily. I still bring my Arri 650 as a back-up / rim light but I usually can find practicals and just dial exposure in by hand with gels and the remote squeezer.
  14. I would love to hear some answers on this topic too! I've got my two EOS L series (16-35 and 70-200 2.8 IS) that are no longer supported by Canon for servicing. That kinda support doesn't instill faith for future purchases but I think I can get some more life out of them with a tune up. I'm also in the US.
