  1. I usually agree with Tyler, but idk about agreeing with him on saying canon c series isn't good for docs. All of the Oscar nominated docs for 2019 was shot on c series cameras. I think they're more than capable of shooting docs. https://www.cinema5d.com/oscars-2019-all-nominated-documentaries-shot-on-canon-cameras/
  2. You can use dedolights (dimmed w/ snoots attached) and specifically direct the beams of lights into the eyes. A similar trick was used on The Addams Family whenever they showed the momma witch. I can't say for sure exactly which lights were used, and I believe I read they used barndoors just to get a steak of light across the eyes. I tried to upload a file, but every file was too big. You can Google and see screenshots of her.
  3. I was reading this interview:" https://mattmulcahey.wordpress.com/2014/09/22/deep-fried-interview-the-one-i-love-cinematographer-doug-emmett/ " and in it he made this statement: Did your choice of the Red Epic as your camera spring from budgetary considerations or did you need the camera’s 5K capability for the effects work? Steven Soderbergh had just retired and he donated two Epic cameras to our shoot. He has his own Epics that have his name laser-engraved on the side of them. We were really geeking out over those cameras. They were the cameras he used over the last couple of years to shoot his films so we knew what movies had been shot on them. So this makes me wonder, do he really use an iPhone to make his movies or is it just a marketing thing?
  4. I believe you can create dcps with resolve. Resolve is free, albeit I'm not sure if the free version offer dcp export..something to look into tho, if you wanna save some money.
  5. There's several tutorials on YouTube that shows how to create dcp's. You may find one that can help you save some money.
  6. Good topic. I've always wondered what's substance is used when actors sniff a line of powder? And do they really sniff it or is there some type of vacuum prop that's used as the straw? I think I've read somewhere before that they use petroleum jelly inside the straw, but I've never read what substance is used. But I don't what the legitimacy of that is. Anyone have any idea?
  7. Adrian or David, can one of you guys explain what a "T Bone" frame mean, or is? Never heard or read that term before when talking about gels, frames, etc. Thanks.
  8. Dom Jaeger thanks for the feedback! And I added the link to the other thread. I intentionally had her out of focus to take the attention off her, but I'll be sure look for the jarring effect in shots like this in the future.
  9. For some reason the link in the post above don't work, so here's the link.
  10. This can be deleted, it was posted in the wrong section. The post is now under "please critique my work".
  11. Hello guys. I wouldn't mind some feedback on a short film that I recently shot. It's a short that we were going for a "Hallmark" movie look and feel. I asked about shooting Hallmark/Lifetime movies in this post: http://www.cinematog...l=&fromsearch=1 I definitely appreciated the feedback and used the info that was provided while I was on set. We started preproduction in Oct and I shot through Nov and Dec. I was pretty much a one man band; shooting (except for drone shots), lighting, sound, editing, and color. My current goal is to DP and/or camera operate a Lifetime Movie Network movie. So during this shoot I was trying to give a feel of both Hallmark mixed with a Lifetime movie type of look and feel. Feedback is wanted and appreciated. Thanks. (Link below) https://www.youtube....h?v=dAen6e8z4Ok
  12. FYI: I'm not a director! I'm a DP & camera operator (job dependant) that's looking to work with directors.
