  1. 'Born Into It' - Trailer Featuring raw interviews and stories coming straight from actual sufferers of mental illness. The goal is to increase awareness and shed light on stories that may otherwise have gone unheard. They can no longer be swept under the rug. They need a voice. I was inspired to start this project after the tragic suicide of my best friend. I felt that I needed to do something other than just mourn him. I wanted to show people the damage that untreated mental health issues can cause. I bought my VHS camera and a Polaroid camera and began my project. Interviewing mult
  2. As camera's keep coming out with higher and higher resolution models (far beyond what our eye can resolve) and with company/studios like Netflix trying to force content creators to film their content in 4k (claiming to want to "future-proof" their investment).... Do any of you have any strong opinions on this and/or have you heard of anyone or you yourself not been able to sell your film BECASE it wasn't UHD or 4k (obviously SD has some hurdles)... I am considering filming some doc stuff while abroad for a year in Sri Lanka (a feature included) using a Super-16 lens (Canon 8-64) in a win
  3. I am proud to announce that a documentary film from my country Macedonia was nominated in the new documentary category for the 34th ASC Awards: Two directors - Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov. Two cinematographers - Fejmi Daut and Samir Ljuma. 400 hours of material, approximately 100 shooting days, during three years of the production. Shot mainly on Nikon DSLRs. I was pleasantly surprised for its Rotten Tomatoes rating of 99%. Nice article on No Film School about the shooting of the film: 'Honeyland': Shooting By Candlelight and Oil Lamp Like a
  4. https://vimeo.com/327032597 We are documenting events here in Japan prior to the 2020 games for practice. Thank you for all your input. We filmed Tokyo Marathon, I love Ireland Parade, Holi 2019, and most recent a Go Ruck event. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, LODI Team Japan
  5. Hello to everyone, This summer I will go in East Asia to shoot a small documentary, and I will be for one week in the middle of the jungle, my concern is how to charge the camera batteries and how to run the laptop for bump the cards. There is something different to carry an heavy small generator? Thank you in advance. Eloy
  6. I came across this teaser for a documentary by Alexandre Favre called Bolex: The Last Employee and thought the readers of this forum might appreciate it. https://vimeo.com/150185992 The contemporary footage was shot using a Bolex modified for super 16, and the audio was recorded on a Nagra. The historical footage and commentary is interesting. Particularly the bit about small camera assembly lines being staffed by women, who were presumed to be more agile than men. The level of precision and craftsmanship that went into these machines is pretty inspiring. I'm looking forward to see
  7. Hello everyone, I've got some questions about materials and push-processing in the 30s. I'm working on a the British documentary "Coal Face" (1935) by GPO film unit. There is quite a bit of information on GPO in general but almost nothing on that particular film. I studied photography, so I could tell just looking at the film that some parts of it were heavily pushed. Since it's a scientific paper I can't just "know" it's the case, I have to bring arguments in favour of it. And while I know that the extreme graininess and high contrast are good indicators for push-processing, it would be even
  8. Hello All! New to this forum so I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this. We will be doing a documentary for a philanthropic women's group. This documentary will be highlighting women who have overcome obstacles and have risen to the top. We are wanting to do a POV scene where someone is looking up at a glass roof from the lobby of an office building and they rise straight up and crash through the glass ceiling. We are thinking a scale model might work as we are not set up to do CGI in the detail they will want. Not sure if this is the right approach. Any ideas ho

  11. Hi everyone, Upon reading my question most of you will probably be like: "...why?", but hear me out. I'm looking for options to mount a recorder/shotgun-mic combo on a Krasnogorsk 3 camera. For my own experimental documentary work I want to use my K3. I've used it a few times now. Hand-processed the film and am mostly satisfied with the results. I'm interested in using non-sync sound with the images. (Playing a lot with the sounddesign in the edit). For this purpose, the images are digitized. I finish most of my projects in digital. I like the K3 for its simplicity and small size.

  13. Does the DJI Ronin supports a Sony F55 camera, with a Compact Prime lense and a ffocus wireless? Which recommendation can you give me?
  14. Hey guys, I'm a 24 year old Cinematographer living in Seven Sisters, London. I recently shot a film called The Mechanic. Its a 60 second doc about Bo Hare, a mechanic and engineer working in rural England, who finds pleasure in the restoration of classic cars. Shot on a Blackmagic Ursa 4K with mixed tungsten and practical fluro lights, i'm a cinematographer, but I directed this as well as shot it. Drone shots on a DJI Inspire 3 Adv. Used vintage nikon AI-S primes to shoot everything, very much recommended if you are on a budget, tons of character, they flare beautifully. There is going t

  17. Hello guys !

Thanks in advance
  18. I've recently had a bit of an epiphany and realized that I want to be shooting nature documentaries, more so than narrative fiction. Enter the issue: All my camera and lens research thus far in my career has been focused on cinema, and my understanding of the necessities for doc work is lacking. What kind of camera systems are you guys using for documentary field work? I've got my eye on a Sony F5 for its compact, lightweight body and (in my opinion) beautiful images. Suggestions?
  19. Looking for some critique on a short film I made! Thanks! (Don't bother telling me about the quick change of dialouge in the ending, I already know haha) https://vimeo.com/143703968
  20. Hi everyone. I'm shooting a short character doc in Greenland in two weeks. I'll be on a ship/boat most of the time. My camera is C100 with atomos ninja star. Lenses are: Sigma 18-35 1.8 / Canon 24-70 F4 / Canon 70-200 2.8 and I have an old school Olympus 50mm 1.8. Do I need any special filters? And if so, which and what brand. Otherwise any suggestions are very much appreciated. Thank you :)

  22. Another great article by Phil Rhodes in the June issue of American Cinematographer. This one is for all us film lovers. It discusses the making of a short documentary, the subject of which is a man who owns one of the last film shops in the world, devoted solely to Super 8 and 16mm. He hits all the salient points we talk about here. You can view the film here: http://www.liamsaintpierre.com/the-way-of-the-dodo/ Thanks, Phil!

We will be down there for a couple of weeks and its a paid gig. We're based in LA. Please contact georgina@usc.edu if interested. Best, Georgina
  24. Hi guys, I want to share with you my last documentary short, shot on tri-x super 8. MINUTERA Minutera is a reflection about photography, about what we lost. vimeo.com/k3films/minutera Enjoy!
  25. A short documentary I shot exploring a little bit of the world through the eyes of the homeless. Please I'd like your thoughts on it. It's super short and I'd love to make it longer. Sadly It was a one man crew and I tried my best! I wish so much I could have had someone dedicated to the audio on set but it was just me and it was in a real world environment so I either get the interview or I don't... I feel that my audio is the weakest part of this mini doc and ironically the most important. Maybe it can be better adjusted in post but I'm not too good in that department of audio. http://yo
