  1. Hey so I have one Cardelini clamp which will spin all the way to the end with one strong push of the tightener. I have another than can never go down more than a couple rotations. Should I be oiling the screw part of the clamp? Or is my clamp just cheap/broken? Thanks for any and all input!
  2. I'm sure they'll have some magical loophole to get out of their deal.
  3. Someone at B&H demoed the 300D to me and it seemed to be worth the money... probably buy it used so save more though. New techs always plummet within a decade.
  4. So all I've gathered is that essentially nothing separates a DoP with 2 years experience versus 25 years experience.
  5. I actually intentionally did this for my most recent shoot. Those Kino ballasts offer so much flexibility for such an old technology.
  6. Something can be final rendered in 1080p but realistically only have the resolution of 480p, it happens all the time. I have friends who render 240p footage in 4K as a joke, knowing Youtube will give the little button for it.
  7. Please reply or message if you have any used 100mm ball tripod heads (about 25lbs capacity or more), or if you have a Dana Dolly kit for sale. Thanks and have a nice day.
  8. To me what's an even bigger pain than focus pulling is calibrating the shims in the lens so the measurements are honest.
  9. Lately my brain looks at a reel or a short film and looks for the essential technicalities (proper exposure, dynamic framing, etc). I put projects in the box of either amateur or professional off of seeing those essentials met. Most of the longtime posters here have that professional look in my opinion. What I wanted to know is what separates the professional DoP from the even better professional DoP? What are things you look for that really tell you someone has 20+ years of experience/education?
  10. Sorry if I get red arrows for this but... you signed up for media/film school without being passionate enough about it to have your own thoughts burning in your mind to write about?
  11. Genuinely wondering your visual thoughts on this project shot on a Canon 5D mark 2.
  12. Literally the only films that entertain me anymore break most conventional screenwriting rules. And they aren't weird art films. The Visit, Crank 2, The Guest, Freddy Got Fingered: pictures like this are gaining sizable followings with the 16-30 crowd years after release. Watch Tim & Eric Awesome Show or The Eric Andre Show, these are big hits utilizing a more extreme form of visual prose.
  13. I've had tint issues with kino flo but moreso them dipping a bit more green and needing to add magenta.. are both errors possible?
  14. I feel like unpredictability will eventually take over in the mainstream.. but it'll be about 20 years from now. People under 30 tend to get the most excited over films that have wild things happen out of nowhere, the non-sequitur is becoming increasingly popular thanks to shows like Eric Andre. Like a bank robbing movie, should everything go as planned? Would probably be boring, but it's what you stuff into the going wrong that keeps people wanting to see more. Having the boss shoot one of the characters in the face for barely any reason with no warning in a film that isn't advertised as horror is what makes a film go viral now. 30 minutes in some background robber with no development shoots the boss in the face and everyone just goes with it. The unexpected is the essence of amusement.
