  1. Was looking for an info dump from a community that collectively has far more experience working on big sets with big crews than I do. I've worked on mostly sets with less than 4 camera/lighting/tech people collaborating at once, lot's of crew members taking on multiple jobs. Has anyone here who made the jump to working on those larger sets with 20+ crew members have any advice or info on the learning curve that presents despite being well read in cinematography and film production? Thanks.
  2. They finally made a camera that fills all of my workflow demands for a tiny camera (swivel screen, internal recording, etc) however I was wondering if anyone had experience with the footage of this camera? I read somewhere it has 14 stops of dynamic range but I was wondering how people felt about the color science of it? Haven't seen too many side-by-side shootouts with this camera and an Arri sensor. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1684244-REG/canon_5077c002_eos_r5_c_full_frame.html And does anyone know if that fan on the side gets ridiculously loud??? Thanks.
  3. Those first conversation shots at the table are really utilizing the cinemascope in an immersive way, must have been wild to watch it in an actual theater. One of those shots that make you want to suddenly do a short in 2.35
  4. Dude this is "old man yelling at cloud" energy. Other than this forum I don't even know anyone who watches the Oscars at this point. I've met Oscar winners and they don't even watch the Oscars.
  5. What's the average age of the posters in here? Like 40 or 50? I guess gay marriage was a hot debate when you guys were in high school but people under 30 just talk about transgender rights at this point. I thought the 2004 archive posts were a time capsule but you're all really impressing me here.
  6. It was literally passed nationwide in 2015 that anyone could marry anyone, this is the most 90's debate I have ever seen on this forum.
  7. Not gathering how this became such a political debate on religion when the photog's stupidity of not reading the societal room is what caused this, not even so much the homophobia itself. Like it's 2021 you really think being so boastful on that oldschool religious stance will just be okay? They're either seriously dumb or wanted any and all attention.
  8. THEY COULDN'T JUST LIE AND PRETEND THEY WERE TOO BUSY TO DO THE SHOOT????
  9. Some more for you "Actually low budget" "Entirely unfunded" "Youtube video"
  10. To use a physics analogy, the calculation of "work" in physics might best describe why it could entirely back fire. A man exerting all of his energy pushing against an immovable brick wall would end up equating to zero work accomplished despite how much effort he put in. A little girl picking up a pencil exerts zero effort though technically she accomplished far more technical work than the man grunting while pushing that wall. The only people filmmaking isn't hard for are kids with rich producer parents. There is no point in adding on further weight to the burden.
  11. I mean, just understand that if furthering the cinema industry on behalf of an entire nation is your goal, you need to be already noticeably talented before film school for any hope of doing that. Saying that is essentially saying you have a plan on being the next Tarantino... And even then Tarantino got recognized because he was already in SoCal. I used to think being in a small pond area would make my career come up less competitive and more meaningful but the reality was opportunities were practically non-existent. That was in one of the 10 most populated cities in America, I could only imagine a film career just in the Philippines would be exponentially harder.
  12. Bought one in 2019 and sold it in 2021 1. Yes, the only time it gets tricky is if you want to do a custom frame rate or coordinate monitors and even then you figure it out quick. 2. Mine had nearly 9000 hours and still had a perfect image to my eyes. 3. In the ballpark of 30 pounds but can feel heavier due to poor ergonomics, though it will never quite feel portable because it eats through batteries like it's nothing so you'll usually have it plugged in. 4. Absolutely amazing in Resolve, one of the easiest cameras I have ever worked with. Though I was using ProRes4444 from the SxS internal. 5. Do not spend a cent over $6500 no matter what the hours are. In the $4000s you are getting a good deal, that's a full pack with high speed license I mean. 6. I gotta be honest the Pocket 6K is so damn close and miles easier than Alexa in terms of workflow. Visually it's just a bit worse than Arri ALEV sensor though it seems to follow a similar philosophy from the side-by-side tests I've seen. I personally have been looking to replace my sold Alexa Classic with a Sony F55, which are also in that $5k range.
  13. It's really strange how ear fatigue was almost exclusively a concept for music mixing and now people are noticing their ears hear differently when walking out of a movie blasting off for 2 hours
  14. I think the size is the same but that doesn't guarantee compatibility. I've tried using the SxS to XQD adapter and so many older cameras wouldn't even recognize it from a software angle.
  15. How does the sound compare with the Red One MX's fan? Interested in an F55 myself but can't do a loudish camera. Thanks.
  16. My initial blueprints would grant me something like 22x26 feet with a 10 foot ceiling, would that suffice most interior shoots? Would it be enough to get a full body green screen shot up and working?
  17. Hello all, had another one for any shooters to add their 2 cents. I thought about building an addition to a cheap house I came across and wanted the addition to be a stellar space for getting shoots done. I know I'd want a 10 foot ceiling to get my speed rails a little higher but what dimensions do you walk into and think "ah space is abundant" depending on whatever sort of project you're doing? Thanks for any dimensions you can throw at me.
  18. Something that isn't a hatchback? I find myself worrying about blindspots too much when it comes to anything other than a standard 4 door with lower trunk.
  19. Hello all, it's been a while. Was in the market for a new (used) car and have always driven a 4 door sedan my whole life. The car I currently have (2008 Azera) is able to take in a few C-stands without the arm or grip head just barely but I was looking to buy something that made the in and out process a little easier. Anyone have some makes/models/years they could throw at me? (I don't want an SUV or Truck)
  20. Watched through it, what did you use to record your friend's VO? It sounds pleasantly vintage.
  21. Wanted to update that I've been using the exact same impact grip heads for 2 more years and still not a single issue.
  22. Are FDs really all that expensive now? Or just particular ones? I remember most FD lenses were only $20-60 a pop in 2013.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
