Hey guys, I am an Australian filmmaker looking to better my lighting skills. I am self taught and have managed to get decent jobs shooting on digital but am feeling like I need some intensive lighting training, my technical knowledge is very basic. There are no short intensive lighting courses in Australia, can anyone suggest a short (1-3 month) course in LA? Appreciate the help.
Hello! I've just started putting together a youtube channel with little behind the scenes videos, tutorials and advice for the aspiring, young, or otherwise "new" cinematographer. I've had many colleagues and students express frustration at the daunting task of "learning how to light". While complex in many regards, it also merely requires you to begin by putting one foot in front of the other... Take a look and let me know if you find this video helpful!

Dear Fellow-Filmmakers! For a Blow up of Fujichrome Single 8mm to 16mm I am trying to find some rolls of FUJI ETERNA CI - 16mm - intermediate film stock (or FUJICOLOR FC-I ). I have tried Fuji international and Frame24 - without success... Does anybody have This filmstock for sale? Does anybody know sources where I might find it? Any ideas, links or tips? Please let me know! Thanks a lot! Regards, Tobias email@example.com
I need some advice to help me decide on a Camera, and I'll give a quick run-down of my situation because I've seen others leave out details on the forum after a brief scan. I'm a Graphic Design student in Toronto, I'm in my 4rth year doing my Design Thesis, and over the past 2 years I've taken more motion graphics/VFX classes than anything else (which is strange to me in a design program mostly based on print and typography) none the less I've found myself heading in the direction of film. I've been doing photography for some time now, I mostly only shoot for personal, but it lead me into film making when I had my Nikon D3100 (by no means a great camera for video) I mostly shoot action sports up until now, some of the atheltes are taking on professional sponsorships for this year, so with that in mind I already needed to upgrade my gear to keep up with the level of deliverables. As of recently I had my camera gear all stolen from me, there is little to no chance I will ever see any of it again. My next intention is to pick up more professional level video camera, something between $2000 and $3500 (Canaidan dollars) and I have NO idea what to pick. Most skate/snowboard/action sport camera men I meet suggest Sony VX series cameras, which to me isn't so appealing, I don't want to be investing an already limited amount of money into something used. I have some minor technical idea of what I'm looking at from playing with my gopro and knowing DSLR technology pretty firmly, but digital camcorders still confuse me when I read the technical specifications, there's just a lot to take in. Beyond action, I do plan to step out into film making, and even hope to try my foot in areas I've studied like advertising. I've been mostly going off what's available to me from Henrys http://www.henrys.com/Categories/112-Pro-Video-Cameras.aspx So my question for those of you already experianced in this, what am I looking for? Anything right now is positive for me.
