  1. Watched through it, what did you use to record your friend's VO? It sounds pleasantly vintage.
  2. Wanted to update that I've been using the exact same impact grip heads for 2 more years and still not a single issue.
  3. Are FDs really all that expensive now? Or just particular ones? I remember most FD lenses were only $20-60 a pop in 2013.
  4. Yes, let's say if a studio or production team is very pro-MJ, and your name pops up as the first thing next to Leaving Neverland, then there is a good chance they don't call you back. Specifically with the music industry (music videos lets say in this case) people are extremely petty and territorial. Know from experience and talking with others far more into it than I.
  5. I just released a video game which needed a content disclaimer and a bunch of revisions to get published to Steam... and it really seems who gets cancelled for what comes down to how much people liked you before your hot button incident got outed. Likening it more to comedians who get cancelled for jokes as opposed to outright assaulting someone. Kwame Brown has recently blown up Youtube, preaching a concept of the "go along get along gang". He'll bring up all sorts of things (literal rape charges for one) from the pasts of prominent figures well ingratiated with this current iteration of liberal media and wonders why they haven't been cancelled too.
  6. Mommy and Daddy make a couple phone calls and immediately get you on professional film sets in positions higher than a PA. Or immediately get you jobs/commissions with corporations with money to spend. Classic nepotism.
  7. Then those teenagers grow up to have disposable income and operate as a reliable executive produce base sort of entity. Getting together $1000 for a short becomes relatively easy without spending your own money. Unless you have the family connections in your first 20 years, you're not moving up the ladder in a standard hollywood way. They don't care about your quality, they just want to see you drive sales.
  8. If you can't get your short on a silver screen to physically legitimize it, don't waste your submission money. If you don't have any insider connections for people you can pitch to, your best bet for gaining traction as a filmmaker is bringing people on board with larger online fanbases than you so they can link and drive traffic to your work once they're in it. Reality is, you can make something frightfully mediocre, but if influencers are attached then people will give it mostly positive attention. This is coming from one of the only millennials on this forum who built up productions from nothing.. Additionally, a forum poster here who's gotten multiple distribution deals said festival discovery is like expecting to win the lottery. Sorry it's not exactly what you're looking for, but I'm sick and tired of pretentious fest organizers profiting off this illusion that industry bigwigs attend their no-name festivals.
  9. My friend said the only good part of the movie was when some girl got her face bashed into a pulp on the mantle or something. Anyone else agree with this take? I haven't seen the film. I think Tarantino is phenomenal at the style he goes for but he can seem overrated, by no fault of his own, the fact the market really doesn't embrace auteurs anymore so he's one of 4 guys left to prop up yearly.
  10. That fact it is anonymous just enables cowardice spite, if you can't put a name next to the downvote then yeah get rid of it is my vote.
  11. All I see is a do not enter circle... Anyone else?
  12. I guess it's usually option 3 for me... thought I have contrasty tastes. On cameras with only 9 stops of DR I find myself always exposing to keep highlights safe, then proceeding to crush the shadows even more in post. But my work might be garbage and ugly so who knows.
  13. I correct the exposure on it and it just doesn't have the pop I want. Film technically blows out too, I just want digital to look better when it clips.
