  1. I've ordered a Bolex REX 3 and I am so excited! I've also gotten a Sekonic L398, so I've really got the cliche film student package, haha. Honestly, the simplicity/limitations of the tools is what I find inspiring and fun. A few things I'm still trying to grasp: - Shutter angle: When to adjust and how, for effect or utility - Aperture: How to compensate for the viewfinder? - In what situations is it practical to push or pull the film more than an aesthetic choice? - common pitfalls to avoid? - best places to buy film stock? - Is using a digital camera for re

  5. Ok so I’m a student going head first into cinematography. I have been in classes for 3 years and it’s time for my own camera. But I have no clue what to get. I won’t spend more than 2,000. Can you help? I was thinking ether g95, g95, gh5, gh5s, or a7sii. Please give me differences and comparisons to help me narrow down my search. Thank you😁

  9. Hi all, I'm going to be shooting a short film in the very near future on the Sony FS5. The Camera only comes with a kit lens, so I was wondering whether it was worth sourcing another lens to work with. I know friend's have pretty pricey Canon lenses, but I'm unsure whether these would be better or worse. The film is going to be shot mostly outside on location, shots of buildings and streets etc. If anyone has ideas, let me know. Thanks.
  10. Hey everyone, I'm a film student working on a project that requires me to shoot a model miniature. The problem is, the model is inside a protective glass case. It's only about an inch thick, but I can't remove it. Any tips for lighting the model through the glass? The model is fairly large (6 ft x 6 ft) so I was thinking of using a soft fill on the opposite side than I am shooting to reduce glare but that's kind of restrictive to the shots I can get. Not sure if anyone has done anything like this before but I thought I'd ask. Thanks! Zach
  11. So I wrote a script for a short film. It is not the first one and it won't be the first project I have ever made. But this is my biggest project yet and will be requiring some financing in range of an extremely micro budget - around 2000 dollars. The short film will be about 25-30min long. The title is Helmina - it is a psychological drama film. I am a 17-year old student filmmaker with aprox. 5 years of experience in filmmaking. I have written, produced, directed, shot and edited several short films, some of them winning different awards at several student film festivals in my country.
  12. Hello Guys, Getting into The Industry I am creative writing student and have a few questions and queries regarding the industry of film and cinema. I do not have the benefits of nepotism, so I am starting from the bottom. I have worked for three years at some top companies in London (Liberties & Claridge's inc). Those experiences have exposed me to the realities of corporate companies, job ladders and management. They have given me the guile and awareness of what happens with the high-status businesses and sharpened my outlook regarding Industries. The paid roles I am looking
  13. Hello there everyone, Well i'm shooting my final short film at 3rd year in film school, the script takes place in a night interior house, my problem is that due to the shooting script in a few shots we see the window. We have to shoot in that hours (daylight) because the film school requires it. I asked one of my teachers and he told me that one easy solution could be to make kind of dark boxes in the windows for putting the lightning equipment and not allowing to pass the sunlight, then put Hampshire Frost filter in the windows for defocus the light and use little lights that seems to com
  14. Hi Everyone, I am a beginner Director of Photography and I'm still learning the camera side to things as a DOP. I'm much stronger on the lighting side than the camera side and need a little advise. I'm shooting a science-fiction story in the near future and I've done some research on lens and how to sell the Sci-fi look, and the thing that keeps popping up is Anamorphic lens. I have little understanding of how Anamorphic lenses work and will be shooting this project on the Sony F3 - From what I've gathered the chip sensor can't do Anamorphic with out a converter lens, but I heard those
  15. Hey everyone! I will be attending Emerson College's LA campus fall of 2017 and we are required to hold an internship for the semester. My focus is cinematography, and am particularly looking for internships that pertain to it. However, this has so far not been an easy search. Most internships I see are "entertainment" or administrative internships. I'm not worried whether it's paid or not, and certainly do not mind internships that require office duties and tedious workloads. My one desire is to find a place where I can at least learn something about the craft and industry. So far,
  16. Hello everybody. This is my first post, i'm used to be more of a reader. I would like to get a little help from you, if you're willing to give your opinion : i have been a student in cinematography for almost four years now, and i'm starting to work on my master thesis. Thing is, i had quite a few ideas, but there is always something wrong : i wanted to work on minimalistic lighting, with the increase in sensitivity these years, but an older student is already on the subject. I wanted to speak of the correlation between being a dp on set and being a dp on post, for Wall E with Roger Deak
  17. Hi, I'm a photography student and I recently bought a Canon 1014E. I mainly shoot 35mm photos (I can work a film camera easy for stills) but I wanted to get into film making so I decided to start out with Super 8 because I assumed it would be pretty easy because of the role it used to play in home video making. I guess I was wrong! I've read the manual online a ton of times but all its done is confuse the hell out of me. I'm up to speed with the majority of the camera's functions but some of them still baffle me so I would appreciate some help! Being a student I have hardly any money so t
  18. Hello, I'm Student in 3rd year in belgium. I'm working on my "final these". The subject is about dialogue in movement. I would like to know witch is for you the best dialogue scene with movement? For me by exemple, this is the opening scene of Inglourious Bastards: the interrogation around the table. There is a circular traveling and two traveling forward to go from a close up to a very close close up. These movements help to increase tension. Thx!
  19. Hello everyone, I am a fine arts student living in Paris, France and I am about to embark on my second short film journey. I need your help to solidify my idea, to get that punch line that shapes the film so that the rest may unravel. My theme is "Traces". This can usually be taken into so many directions but the one I think would be interesting is body traces. Such as skid marks on your knee as a child playing soccer; to a teenager getting a hickey, to a person battling depression and cutting themselves, to a man nicking himself shaving, to a woman having a red cheek from getting slappe
  20. Hello everyone, I am a fine arts student living in Paris, France and I am about to embark on my second short film journey. I need your help to solidify my idea, to get that punch line that shapes the film so that the rest may unravel. The theme of the movie is TRACES. I've chosen to select a few phobias that are related to the subject, which could make for an interesting plot. Here is what i got: - Ablutophobia (fear of washing or bathing) - Athazagoraphobia (fear of forgetting or being forgotten) - Haphephobia (fear of being touched) - Rhytophobia (fear of getting wrinkles) - Phi
  21. Hello all, I'm an aspiring film director/producer, entering UTA next year as a freshman. I constantly hear that you need to be in LA for the film business, or that everyone ends up in LA, and I wanted to know a little more about this. My question is, why? Why do you need to be in LA? I lived there when I was younger, and all that I remember was that the cheapest dirthole was still more expensive than my modest house in Austin. Also, I've had friends tell me how strict LA is on permits, whereas in Austin, I was shooting on the street w/o any permits and a police cab came up and offered to
  22. http://goo.gl/forms/QDEA9BjiVt I need help with a project in university, I am studying Cinematography and need to gather primary research from professionals within the industry, If anybody can help, use the link above please. Thank you.
  23. Good night guys, we're shooting a short film in about a month, and I'm planning to use a BMCC 2.5K. It's a low budget film so we'll be using some LED panels and Rokinon lenses. However, there's a night scene, so I'd like to know if there's any recommended exposure settings that you suggest. I haven't visited the location at night yet, but I know it's not pitch black, and that there are some practicals. Also, we're not looking for a high contrast/ very dramatic look, mostly soft light. The only time I've shot night scenes with the BM I used ISO 800 and played with wide apertures (T/1.5 the
  24. Hello all, For a class project we were assigned to make a music video. This is what I made, a fan production of the song "Baby Came Home 2" by The Neighbourhood. I would appreciate any and all feedback! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNdpX2hPpyQ
  25. Dear wisest of cinematographers, In the course of my matura I am required by the state to write a 40k-60k characters long academic writing about a subject of choice in form of a question. The question that I came up with a year ago was: How does the job of a cinematographer in a project using almost only green screen change? (As seen in Gravity or most parts of Avatar) So this in mind I then started researching and writing. In order to finish my writing I am now asking you, the community, for an answer to that question, a conclusion if you will. Cheers, Laurin H.
