  1. Yup, you're making it too complicated. It's just key to fill (as far as I've always understood it). Key 100FC : Fill 100FC = 1:1 Ratio Key 200FC : Fill 100FC = 2:1 Ratio and so on.
  2. I will take these critiques of the cinematography reel as an artistic medium as a sign that I shouldn't overthink it.
  3. That's good enough for me. Thank you kind sir.
  4. Do you think this goes too fast? I did it with the music, but it might be too chaotic. I've watched it too many times to tell for myself. Thanks!
  5. It looks good. I would start with a different first-shot. I think you have stuff in there that would make a better first impression.
  6. This is cool. They definitely go all out with the light show. Quite the spectacle.
  7. Cool thread! I find myself favoring square aspect stills as well. Don't know why. This was a 300 ft black spire (no one knows what it's made out of) that sticks up out of the ocean in Antarctica. Shot from about 2 miles away on a GH5 with a 100mm lens.
  8. I'm in Boston too. If you don't want them, I'll take them.
  9. Yup, a pictures worth a thousand words. Well be able to tell you whats up.
  10. Unfortunately already own the tripod. But if I was buying a tripod today, I would definitely get one of those flowtechs. Luckily, anything I'd need to light will be inside with plentiful plug in power. I love those Quasar tubes, so I'm sure I'll be able to rig something up with them.
  11. Good advice, thanks everyone. Here's some more info about the project so we can talk appropriate gear. It's a bit of an weird project. I'm basically gonna do a travel vlog about living at Palmer Station with a bunch of scientists doing marine biology research. The structure of the videos come from the vlogging, but the bulk of the screen time will actually be academic tangents about whatever I'm experiencing in the vlog. For example: me outside on selfie-cam in a blizzard - "Wow it's super windy here today. What causes extreme wind in Antarctica?" And that launches us into a mini lesson about how the ice sheet creates "katabatic winds" on the coast. The lessons will be part b-roll and part animation. I've got $10,000 for new gear. Most of the basics like tripod/audio/laptop I already have. Here's the whole list including everything I plan to buy. My instinct is to go GH5, since a good chunk of this thing is gonna be selfie cam, and I feel the camera could still handle everything else I want to do. Plus, I already have a GH3 and some m43 lenses. GH5 -6 Batteries -2 Battery Chargers -2 Fast SD Cards 256GB (capable of highest bit rate) -4 backup SD Cards 64GB (capable of lower bit rate) -1 XLR Hotshoe Adapter -Some kind of weather protection GH3 (backup camera, uses all the same accessories) Micro 4/3 Lenses -Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 -Olympus 12-100mm f4 EF Lenses -Sigma 18-35 f1.8 -Sigma 150-600 f5-6.3 -Speedbooster DJI Mavic Pro Drone -4 Batteries -1 Battery Charger -1 Controller -1 Personal iPhone -2 Micro SD Cards -ND Filter Kit GoPro Hero 5 -2 Batteries -2 Micro SD Cards -Small boom pole Tripods -75mm Sachtler Tripod -Small Manfrotto Tripod -Zhiyun Crane 2 Gimbal Lighting Kit -4 2ft Quasar x-Fade Tubes -2 Cardellini Clamps -2 Grip Heads -2 Baby pin tube clamps -1 Shorty GOBO arm -2 Rolls gaff tape -1 Jelly Roll -2 Stingers -4 100W Practicals -2 300W Hand Dimmers Audio -1 Shure Wireless Lav -1 Rode Videomic Pro -1 Sennheiser 421 Shotgun -2 XLR Cables DIT -1 Laptop -1 Backup Card Reader -1 16TB Raid Drive -4 4TB Portable Backup Drives
  12. Hey everyone, any tips for shooting in remote locations? I scored a gig shooting some educational videos in Antarctica for 6 weeks. I've shot abroad once, but never anything like this. The temperature where I'll be is actually pretty temperate (slightly colder than winter time Boston), so I don't have to worry about extreme cold breaking any cameras. I'm more concerned with something breaking and not having a backup. There's no mail delivery to the station. My second concern is that I'll be shooting on a lot of small inflatable boats, which I've never done before. Any seasoned travel shooters out there with pro-tips? Have you ever been on a long trip and wished you brought x, y, or z?
  13. I don't understand all the hate for the iphone. The look is totally unique. Break the tyranny of beauty! Sometimes ugly is better!
  14. Hi everyone, I'm shooting a short this weekend, and the director recently decided that he wants to have the actors improv a lot of the dialog. A big portion of the film is an intense argument, so there will be a lot of movement, stepping on lines, etc. We've been prepping this as a single camera shoot for about a month, but now we're worried it won't cut together if there's too much variation between takes. My first thought is to trade our Varicam LT for 2 GH5s and cross cover the dialog. What do you guys think? Is there any way to cover chaotic improv with a single camera?
  15. That makes sense. Thanks everyone.
