  1. Hi, I'm getting the hardware to make wall spreaders out of 2x4s. But I'm anticipating a problem. The maximum length 2x4 my vehicle can handle is 8 feet.

  2. In the film "Double Indemnity" Fed MacMurray is standing in the home of Barbara Stanwyck. Strong shafts of light are beautifully streaming down. I was told that John Seitz used metal filings (Possibly aluminum) to create that effect. This would not appear to be safe for anyone to inhale. I am thinking that Rosco fluid may be a safe alternative but may be a little difficult to obtain the correct diffusion. Might someone have another suggestion for a safe material which might remain airborne?

  4. Dear All, I will be shooting in an Astronomic facility located at 16,000 ft above sea level. The idea is to bring a couple of Joker 800 watts.

Thank you very much for your advice. Regards, Alejandro Alcocer DOP Mexico City http://www.alejandroalcocer.com
  5. Hi everyone, I'm going to setup a Briese Light 220 on an exterior shoot, and I need to know how can I avoid to him fall down with the wind! (It's not a windy place). I've 100 kgs of Sand bags but I would like to strap them on some trees or if it's not possible on the ground! What should I use if I the trees are to far and the ground situation is the only possibility? Thanks by your time, Bruno
  6. Hey guys, My client and I are currently in the process of storyboarding a safety induction video for a large electrical company. The script is basic with telling new employees about the danger of electrical gear and the hazards associated with day to day activities. My client wants to make this as interesting as possible as the target audience is around 20-25 years old. In order to make it interesting and different to the other hundreds of safety videos, what can we do differently? The budget is not a problem so there's no limits to your ideas. We can hire visual effects teams if need be, o
