  1. This reads like blackmail
  2. Is there any way to do an HSL Qualifier so you could pinpoint the hue of the eye whites and shift them back away from the blue tone? Also I think the first shot looks pretty good, though I do see the problem far more with the second shot.
  3. Have been wanting to look into camera drones to throw into my arsenal for a year or two now but I can't tell what's prosumer and what actually produces an image quality cuttable with something like Blackmagic or similar dynamic ranged cameras. Are most people just buying drone rigs to put their pocket cameras in? Or is the usual practice buying a drone with the camera just built into it? What are some common models that are most popular for professional productions? Will they deliver impressive enough dynamic range for freedom in the grade? Lastly, how big of a learning curve is there to get a proper panning or zoom out shot from a drone? Thanks for any input, I'd look it up on Youtube but I trust the opinions of you guys more.
  4. This is the most blunt I have ever seen Dom and I've been here for 7 years.
  5. It's amazing how much Jennifer's Body has blown up in the culture lately, hope David is seeing the memes his work created!
  6. Hey all, In the last couple years I've been seeing the Panavision Primo Prime lenses come up for the technical credits of a lot of movies I watched back in the day. Was trying to get more info on them since they look incredible from the tests I've seen. There are many pieces of gear which get "Panavised" (Panavision Genesis is Sony F35 for example) and I was wondering if these lenses had a counterpart I was not familiar with which can be found on the used cinema lens market? Or if anyone knew of a prime set with very similar look and philosophy to the Panavision Primos? Would @Dom Jaegerbe the expert on this one? Thanks to anyone who can share their thoughts on this as always.
  7. Could it be they're sometimes using AI faces over stand-ins now for retakes? We've seen it with Paul Walker and Mark Hamill now, imagine how many other times these studios preferred to keep it under the rug.
  8. In your opinion what is the best tiny camera with a side-swivel screen and internal 4:2:2+ recording? Been on the hunt for like 5 years for one.
  9. Please update us with any drawbacks you experience with it
  10. Bump, still want to buy one. Though I noticed they have been selling for $4500-$5500 in the past year on eBay.
  11. Is there an effect on that photo or is LA that thickly shrouded in smog? lol
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  20. Some more for you "Actually low budget" "Entirely unfunded" "Youtube video"
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
