  1. Hey everyone, I was wondering what methods you can do to create a rig where the camera is centered above a group of kids, and the camera begins to boom up and spin in a circle at the same time. I know a jib would help create the boom effect, but I'm having trouble imagining the tripod head attached and spinning around. I'm thinking I just do an extreme tilt on the ball head and loosen the pan and have it spin once we're about to shoot. I'm afraid, however, that the camera's battery might be in the way which may throw that idea out the window. Any thoughts or rigs that are decent in budget? The camera would be a RED Epic body with standard Zeiss Primes.
  2. As a DP, how do you communicate your orders to your team on set? (e.g. Light ratios, light modifications, rigging)
  3. Looking to buy the complete shoulder set and handle grips for the 435. Let me know!
  4. Good Day I am going into a three-day shoot for a student film as the cinematographer, essentially being the DOP of the shoot. I would like to get some input on what the essentials would be for a cinematographer to have on set - I am talking consumables to make the shooting process easier, not any kind of gear. Here is a list that I've made so far, please feel free to add to the list if there is anything useful that you have found. Gaffer gloves - for preventing barn doors and lights from burning your hand off gaffer tape - for, well, everything. plain markers - marking gear, making notes and for focus pulling Black wrap - that magic black stuff that wraps around any light to flag off spill light Washing pegs - for putting gels on lights dust-off - an absolute necessity deodorant - if someone marked the clapper board with a permanent marker, works well to get it off. Plus it's just convenient for everyone else if you don't smell like a hobo Maglite - taking focus, finding things in the dark Lens cleaning kit screw driver set Allen keys (also known as hex keys) multitool - the one with the toothpick, you never know when it might come in handy. Please add things that you may have found to be practical and helpful to getting things done easier on shoots.
