  1. Looks slick. I loved your continuous steadicam music video too.
  2. I am selling a Sony EX1 with only 75 hours on Ebay right now. Included in the package is a hard case, two batteries, two 8 gig SXS cards, a remote, and a B+W UV filter. I work full time for a TV network now, so I don't need the camera anymore. Maybe it will be the perfect package for you or someone you know. Check it out with this link -> http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...em=120516497422
  3. Here is a higher res video that besides the color smearing is pretty impressive. http://www.usa.canon.com/dlc/controller?ac...ticleTypeID=225
  4. Take a look at these videos http://www.slashgear.com/canon-eos-5d-mark...-clips-1716575/ The squirrel clip is very sharp and lifelike. And I love the thought of using a 85mm L for video. What do you guys think? I already have a lot of nice Canon lenses but I am curious if this outputs live video to HDMI so you can pull focus, and I am curious if you can manual adjust the iris,etc...
  5. What do you guys think of Scarlet. Though it is a different animal it, stuff like this is making me second guess my EX1 purchase.
  6. http://imaging.nikon.com/products/imaging/...d90/en/d-movie/ For only $1000 how do you think this would do as HD camera? The only major drawback I have seen so far is that it blacks out the viewfinder in movie mode, so you are left with the lcd though you could mark you focus pulls.
  7. I have a client that wants shots of talent spinning then stopping only to find themselves in another set of clothes. Is there better ways to get this effect than just locking the camera down and doing dissolves between the spins? I would like to shoot this on a white sync but I don't know if I can convince them to do that.
  8. Nice stuff. Looks like it was a fun shoot throwing tomatoes.
  9. I have had trouble recently in rooms with huge glass aquariums, dark mahogany wood with a thick coat of polyurethane,etc.. It seems like the best solution is lighting with a large source then flaging it alot, then maybe use a few fresnels to fill in or draw attention to elements. I have also been in huge stores with a mix of warm fluorescents, vapor, halogen, and etc.. that I have no control over whatsoever. These areas can be 50 feet by 100 feet and I need a a lot more lighting power that I have now. I am working with mostly 1k tungsten fresnels and Totas which have no control but you can fit alot of them on a plane. I am looking at grabbing a few 2k Altman Soft Lites. Thanks for your suggestions.
  10. What are some of the fundamentals of lighting for architecture rather than people?
  11. What is the color temperature of the blueish Mercury Vapor lights found in most big box stores? And what CTB gel recipe is needed to match tungsten lights to them?
  12. Thanks a million! That is perfect, just the moonlight look I am going for. Is there another gel that is closer to your timed image? What HMI fixtures did you use? I am wondering if I should use two 1.2k fresnels now or just one 2.5 . If I had two HMIs I could light the background separate. I read some people use pars for more light too. I will have a 35 foot bucket truck to get the light up high. What other lights did you add in to mix besides the HMI?
  13. Any suggestions on how to light a night exterior in the country? I recently got talked into being the dp on a zombie film. This will be my first attempt at this genre, I am excited because we have a big budget effects and makeup company on board. Since most of the scenes takes place outside the house which is in the country I figure the moonlight would be the most common light source. I have always used 1/2 ctb on tungsten sources for small scenes. The director wants to move fast and to keep tweaking to a minimum so I am thinking of renting a 2.5k HMI Fresnel put it on a high c-stand or scissor lift and gel it with a 1/2 cto and maybe a 1/8th plus green to light the 20x20 space next to the house. I will use a few Arri 650 fresnels to make a few pools of light coming from the garage and windows. I would like to use a hazer to fog the woods alittle bit but would probably have to light the fog from behind to get much effect. I was also thinking a china ball or small kinoflo would be nice for the shots needing fill. Here is a video that is close to the look I am trying to capture>
  14. I have a shoot in Boston the second week of August. We are looking to hire one person with a portable greenscreen, Kinoflos, Fresnels, and 2 soft boxes. We will have the camera and audio gear. Anyone interested please email me at jonathan@provisiontv.com.
  15. Looks good. Did you go to Toccoa Falls college ? I saw a kid in your video wearing a TFC shirt. I used to live in Toccoa and worked at the CBS affiliate there about 4 years ago.
