  1. Hi, I've recently entered pre-production on a low budget feature I recently finished writing, now storyboarding awaits. I'd like to shoot the entire storyboard on set. Been looking into the Artemis app. It would be great to use the app to find the right focal length for each shot and add that information to each storyboard picture. Does anyone know how the metadata is stored in Artemis if you sync it to dropbox? Would be great to add the pictures and metadata into something like studio binder or shot lister, so that you know exactly what lens to use for each specific shot. It would be a huge timesaver, which would suit us perfect considering this'll be a run & gun type production. 30$ i a cheap investment if you use the app a lot, but it's expensive (for me at least) to just try it out, so I thought I'd check in with you guys before I decide. How would you go about storyboarding a low budget feature as a DP if you had access to the set and actors in pre-prod? Drawing the entire storyboard would be nice, but I don't think it'd be the most efficient approach, and I also feel that being able to go through the entire script on set with the actors when doing the storyboard would be great for both me as DP / Director and the actors. Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated! Thanks, Patrik
  2. Hi everyone, What does a cinematographer during pre-production. I am doing shot list at the momemt + storyboard and will scouting on monday + testing. but what else must I cover? thank you
  3. I am a DP based in NYC getting ready to shoot my third indie feature. I'm curious to hear what other DP's do to prep for feature projects, and also what do you ultimately bring to set with you for principal photography? I've been working on ultra low budget indie films and would love to hear some other perspectives. I understand the importance of prep time (creative meetings with the director, tech scouts), but also know production doesn't always go as planned (due to weather and other unforeseeable circumstances) and time is limited during production so being able to adapt on the run is important rather than trying religiously to stick to a lighting plan. This is a broad subject but I'd love to hear: what do you do to prep, and what do you bring to set with you during principal photography? Thanks!
