  1. I just found this guy on the youtubes the other day.
  2. It's just another delivery format as far as I know. I always have separate output workflows from the original material for different delivery methods....TV broadcast, DCP, internet, DVD or BluRay all need finessing of the sound and picture for the final product to insure consistent results between them all. Someone with more experience here may know a different and more specific answer than me.
  3. I honestly think that power is power as long as it's good, clean power! Here are my DIY 150 watt hour V-mounts that can push 15 amps no problem. They are not pretty but heavy duty and super CHEAP!! I also can just adapt to gold mount when needed (because we all love adapters in between poop!). More and more v-mount these days it seems.
  4. I use "Shot Designer" for overheads and "Shot Lister" for the shot list. "Sun Surveyor" to double check where the sun will be through out the day. "Cine Designer" is a neat tool but I have yet to be able to incorporate it into my usual workflow. If I'm fortunate enough to have floor plans or some other architecture plans given to me in advance I use them as the base layer in "Shot Designer".
  5. I only have the first version of the Canon 70-200mm F2.8 L IS, but it's been bulletproof! The only weak spot is the flare in the back lit subjects. The mark ii has fixed this problem. I haven't shot with the mark iii yet. It's worth the money in peace of mind as well as resell value.
  6. The biggest issue I've had so far is punch. LED's just don't have the punching power that a tungsten has. Even my wonderful Aputure 300d can't compete. Another few decades and perhaps they'll get that worked out like the CRI was (close, but certainly not the sun). There are many benefits to LEDs but just like camera's, there is no such thing as a perfect one. It's always gonna be a compromise IMO.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I got my short film up on Amazon for the US and UK. Honest critiques welcome!!!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
