  2. Finally the Cyberspace VR surfing that was promised to us in the 90's and 2000's is at our fingertips. Worlds and avatars beyond euclidean geometry and imagination are reality at last. Meet people from across the world in teasing 3-D, exploring vast worlds of fantasy together, or dance your tail of to your favourite music with a colourful crowd. Finding people online is no longer shackled to text or voice, but now everything is possible all the while experiencing 'real' proximity. But digital space can also be a gateway to meeting people in real life, not as distant strangers but as close friends. Making for highly emotional and gorgeous experiences that make lasting core memories. Be them saved in the digital domain, on Polaroids or on the retina. I wanted to mix all these wonderful mediums of expression together and show what wonderful things can come from VR and beyond.

  5. Hello everybody, I'm here to better understand what means High Definition. Surely YouTubing you can see several movies in 720p(1080p, etc...). However, some of them appear more defined that others. For example, naturalistic documentaries seems more detailed than a cinema film. I apologize with you for my following sentence: for several films it seems to me that (for some reason, probably for the lenses used, maybe for the use of a smoke machine, probably ... I don't know) they appear "under defined" with respect the HD camera used to shoot them. Please, give a look at the following link. Surely a wonderfull film. But ... It doesn't seem to me defined at 720p. Can you tell me something .. or maybe I need of a good opticians and new glasses ? Regards.
  6. Hey everyone, This might be a question that exposes my ignorance, but recently I was asked if I could grade a 30 minute documentary for someone. I happen to do a lot of color correction for my job as well as just for fun when I want to mess around in Resolve, so I was confident that I could do what the director was asking for (she said she wants it to look true to life, so mostly just primary corrections it sounds like). Then she told me that the footage was V-Log 4K shot on the Panasonic EVA1 and asked if I have a 4K monitor, which I don't. What I do have is an IPS 1920x1200 monitor, specifically a ProArt ASUS PA248Q, and a ColorMunki. I have graded C100, FS5ii, GH4, and even downscaled RED footage on this monitor with good results, but because she specifically asked if my monitor is 4K, I'm beginning to wonder if maybe my monitor wouldn't be accurate enough for her project. As far as I know, the only problems I would have are judging sharpness and noise, but as far as color goes it should be fairly accurate regardless of my monitor's resolution as long as I calibrate properly, right? Or is there something I'm missing here? I'd love to help with her project, but I also don't want to waste her time. What do you guys think?
  8. Hi all, I'm looking foward to buy a new monitor to take with me on set. wich brand and model would you recomend. thanks for reading and comenting. J.

Link below should go to a folder with more images. https://goo.gl/photos/AdrAQkMZBTjYqux38
  11. How exactly is the 1080p achieved in this camera? Is it downscaled in camera from the 4k like a hardware downscale? Or is it some complicated in camera magic happening?
  12. I have some questions about how Blu-ray Disc video differs from VOD available on various streaming services. What are the main differences between a Blu-ray video and a video from any of the streaming-services ones? What changes the most? Is it the amount of colours? Is contrast lower? How much less sharp are the streaming videos? Do the same differences apply whether it be 1080p HD content vs. Blu-ray or the 4K UHD Blu-rays and UHD streaming? Are there any differences in quality between various streaming services? Is the same film on, for example, Amazon Video in the same format and of the same quality as it is on Netflix? Are the codecs used by various streaming Web sites the same? For example, I see that Vimeo, YouTube, and iTunes Store use H.264. If both a Blu-ray Disc and a streaming service use H.264, why is streaming video of lower quality? I presume it’s because of the compression scheme. Are the compression schemes all the same on various VOD Web sites? So a single-layer Blu-ray Disc can contain up to 25 GB of data and the dual-layer one 50. If you were the download a 1080p streaming video, how much storage would it occupy? Is the problem with the difference in quality a problem of internet speeds or does it lie somewhere else? A Blu-ray Disc can have a bitrate of up to 40 Mbps. What are the bitrate of streaming services? What kind of speeds will you need for uninterrupted, smooth streaming of 4K UHD video? Or, more generally, how do you calculate the speed needed for a content with a particular resolotion, given that this will change a lot in the future? Will we eventually have even the true Blu-ray Disc audio experience in streaming, too? Will streaming services eventually replace Blu-ray Discs and what are some of the things that need to happen for that to occur? I forgot a lot of what I was going to ask, and one thread got lost when I accidentally shut down my browser, but I think I’ve managed to recover the gist of what I was going for.

  18. Hello. I have been making short movies all my life. Went to Pittsburgh filmmakers and shot a couple 3 min long films in 16mm. In 2007 I bought a canon hv20. It's a hdv camcorder that takes the old, small tapes. Anyway, here's my thoughts. The 16mm film I did (the one that turned out well and not grossly overexposed) looked phenomenal to my eyes. I''d/I've never done anything else that looked that good. It was done on Kodak 16mm color neg 200t. I used a bolex from school with ordinary, non zoom lenses. So, ff to 2007. When I took a few videos with hv20, I was floored by the quality. I compared it to the 16mm film I did. The 16mm still looked better, and handled colors better. However, with the hv20, after tinkering with it a while , I've gotten COMPLETELY mixed results. I've learned that if you're shooting on video, everything has to be PERFECT to get the same quality every time. It's almost as if the stars have to be right to remain consistent. I mean, I have lit it well and it looks like crap, and I've lit it poorly and it looks great. Vice-versa. I just got back some 16mm b and w reversal I shot with a bolex. Looks good. however, after comparing it to a few of my "good days" footage with the hv20 (b&w in post), the hv20 clearly stands out. So now I'm shaking my head, confused more than ever. The HDV tapes are exceedingly cheaper than film and do produce excellent image quality... if everything is done absolutely perfect every time. How do I do this? I just don't know what I'm doing wrong to get some things looks great and some things that look like a 1980s videocam.

  20. I have a clean, well maintained, ready to shoot Sony PMW-EX3 Pro HD camera for sale with a few extras. It's an excellent run and gun camera that is inexpensive to operate. The Sony pop on batteries are inexpensive, light and efficient compared to bricks. I've used inexpensive fast SD cards with the included SxS to SD card adapters and they work great. A 16GB card holds about 50 min. at full 1080p and costs only $17 at B&H. You can use Nikon, or other lenses, with a Nikon to Sony mount adapter, or use the included Sony power zoom which is plenty good to get work done. I am the sole owner/operator. I've never rented it, nor let anyone else touch or even breathe on it. :) $2800 See photos and more details at http://www.prairiepictures.com/gear.html Thanks! Martin

  22. Hello fellow cinematographers and film makers! If I could borrow 3,750 frames at 24fps of your time to review my new reel. It would mean a great deal to me if you could offer some critique afterward. I'm in the middle of a huge push to take my work and career to greater quality and new opportunities. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I would be happy to return the favor. Thank you and happy shooting! Alex www.alexfuerst.com
  23. Hey everyone, I'm looking into the whole shooting on 35 mm 2 perf thing right now for my first "professional" short movie, and what scared me mostly about 35 mm was not being able to really see what's being shot other than on a shitty quality video tap or assist, but I read here the other day someone talking about using an HD monitor and feed it the composite signal from the camera and having a much better quality, is this really possible? I read otherwise about the HD IVS by Arri but it seems ridiculously pricey, otherwise, it seems like the Penelope has actually a pretty decent, much better video feed, what do you guys think? Love this forum by the way, so many resources !
  24. 2 more cameras from Blackmagic! The Blackmagic Studio HD and The Blackmagic Studio 4K cameras: Heres my article on it here: http://www.redsharknews.com/production/item/1594-blackmagic-release-studio-cameras Freya
  25. Hi Folks, I didn't go to film school. Most of my training came from internships in middle and high school (also my family was in local television) and those connections worked into jobs when I got out of school, so I'm not familiar with the film school scene, in fact, many of my mentors in the business advised me that unless I had a lot of money and could afford UCLA (this was 1978, by the way) or something equivalent, not to waste time and money on film school, especially since I had already had a good bit of hands on training during my volunteer work. It worked out for me pretty well , but that was a different time.Throughout the years I've done some consulting and community college level teaching, but never on a film school level until a year and half ago when I taught a cinematography class for the New York Film Academy in Celebration, Florida. I had a blast, great students and I got to work with some high caliber folks and for me the coolest part was I got to work with Arri S 16mm cameras that I thought I would never see beyond a museum again. Tri X Reversal, it brought back memories of high school football games and early 60's newsreels, my childhood and early adulthood.After reading up on NYFA both pro and con, I got the impression that many were questioning the wisdom of teaching students on an "old clunker" when the big guys are shooting with RED's and Alexa's. Fair enough, but you have to remember, this level of student, high school or early college is not going to start out with one of those anymore than I did with a Arri SR or Aaton Prod.You also have to take into consideration the number of students that aren't interested in becoming cinematographers. About two thirds of my students were wanting to be actors, directors and producers and they certainly weren't going to take it to the Panavision level. So here are the options for this level of student that I see. HD Prosumer or DSLR: I would lean toward either DSLR or perhaps some of what Black Magic is offering. This is where I have to criticize NYFA on their choice of the Panasonic prosumer grade cameras they use. Great cameras, but they're ENG and no matter how much you play with camera tape markings on the lens barrel,it's still not a proper lens for that. I offered the students the option of using that or the MF numbers on the monitor, as most AC's I've seen these days follow the cam op via a small flat screen monitor.Now DSLR's are great, but here again, they're not designed for a Hollywood type film crew operation unless you spend a good deal of cash on camera cages and follow focus attachments. This would be economically impractical in this type of situation, I could imagine the nightmare of trying to keep up with that many DSLR kits students were sent out with on the Disney backlot. High school students and even the adults in that type of situation need to keep the number of items in the field small,and the many pieces of tinker toy type stuff that goes with DSLR's would be a nightmare to contend with. Then you have super 8 and 16mm. I love super 8 and I could see it being used on a basic "primer" type of project, but beyond the avant garde scene, yuppie weddings and a certain type of look, its not really such a good training format either,It's best reserved, in my opinion for the "intimate" hand held, home movie or retro doc look, which is exactly what we're seeing the industry currently using it for. Then you have the old stand by, tried and true 16mm "clunkers". I love these things, they're my classic muscle cars, what I cut my teeth on, but it disturbed me to see so much precious film footage being wasted on exposure tests and workshops.Moreover , such a volume of labwork was a nightmare for scheduling projects, These days, especially for a film student on a budget, 16mm film stock is like oil and seeing it used like that is almost like driving a Hummer to the corner store. Check out this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYADhAZsPNA Now let's say a film school has a fleet of "old clunkers". They're still good for training the basics on, but if,say you converted half of the fleet to a digital hybrid, the student could learn basic composition,exposure, work flow and camera crew operation and once they've mastered that, then they can move on to shooting their projects with real film cameras, if that's the direction, if not, they will still be prepared for the film type work flow that is currently standard procedure in the industry, rather than pick up bad habits from being trained on an ENG camera. P and S Teknik is already doing this with Arri 16 SR 3's, offering a digital mag and as I understand someone else is working on a digital super 8 cartridge. What are your opinions on this?
