These include MKV.
  4. You commonly use different lights on each area, Need to set the light levels so that they're appropriate to the overall look of the scene/shot. Use your eyes, what looks right for what you're trying achieve, probably is. There are a number of books on film lighting, it's worth reading those.
  5.

  6. I seem to recall the Zeiss T3 10-100 16nn zoom lens having both imperial and metric focus scales.
  7. Under the new owners there seems to be a pace to bringing out new versions of Lightworks. They seem to have focused on remote working and improving the first impressions for new users in V2021.3 .

  9. The film and TV industries have always been who you know and probably nothing is going to change that. The hard part is building up your network of contacts, a process that can take years and involves getting yourself into positions where you can get noticed, combined with careful marketing of yourself. Of course, it helps if you've got relatives or other connections in the industry..
  10. One point about longer short films is that they can drag compared to shorter, snappy films when put in a program of short films. You have to market your film with a sharp pitch, an excellent synopsis and publicity stills in order to get it accepted into a good film festival. These will encourage the viewers to view your film. These are the skills you need to get a feature film off the ground, so festivals are good practice. It's worth going to the festival because it's possible to make contacts with other filmmakers. Some festivals have more industry connections than others, so ar
  11. Longer short films are more difficult to get into film festivals. The shorter the film, the better chance to get it accepted. There are longer shorts, but the filmmaker already having a profile in the industry assists them to get accepted by festivals 15 mins or even better 10 mins tends to be the best for getting into film festivals. At 25 mins, marketing it as a single TV drama may work better. TV dramas tend to be more cinematic these days.
  12. It's listed on the Abakus web site, trying contacting them to check on availability. http://www.abakus.co.uk/Format_Converters.htm
