  1. Hello everyone, very soon I am going to tackle my first well budgeted movie as a camera op and I was looking for some tips from professionals on the matter. Its not the first time I operate but I am accustomed to small projects with little complications. This time I will be working with an experienced director who is going to rely on me a lot and with new gadgets for me such as the dolly magnum etc. We are a 2 cameras unit and although we run the same sensor I am stuck with the heavier camera. I expect some handheld action as well so any tips with that would be very much appreciated
  2. Hey Filmmakers! This summer i'm officially doing my first job as a paid DoP for a short film (30min approximately) . I've never shot fiction before, i am foremost a Director and Writer for my own films. Although i have studied still photography for a long time, i've only shot and directed my own documentary short film. The film is mostly taking place in one location, a forest with a cabin/small house. I want to create a very unique look for the film, i'm gonna play with mist/rain, shoot early mornings and evenings. I take a lot of inspiration from my favorite filmmake
  3. Hey everyone, I'm looking to get a set of scrims for 1K Fresnel that I acquired a little while ago, and I wanted to ask a quick question. I saw some used scrims online that were a decent price, but they had that "burned" look after lots of use, reminding me a lot of how the protective screen on my Omni light looks. This might sound silly to ask, but does that affect the quality of the scrim at all? I know that gels tend to fade over time, so it made me wonder if perhaps a heavily used Double scrim might not really cut a full stop, for example. Does anyone have experience with this? Tha
  4. 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
  5. Hello, I'm an aspiring DP who is primarily working as a camera assistant in NYC. I re-located to the city from LA after college for reasons mostly pertaining to preference. In the past year (moved here June '14), I've slowly, but steadily re-established myself and am now working quite regularly; no complaints there. However, now that I am not scrambling as much financially, I want to re-focus on shooting more projects in order to one day fully transition into full time DP work. When I lived in California, I had a lot of young director friends from college that I knew, but now that I a
  6. Hi guys, Been following the forum for ages but never actually managed to ask anything so here it is. I was given the opportunity to light and shoot a small online promo for a new water company about their flavoured water. The moto basically is "water with a twist". You know Children find water boring. But it’s good for them. They expect coke, sprite, orange juice, squash ... anything but Hate2O! I have never shot a commercial/promo with kids and never ever lit for a classic high key, bright white commercial look that you can find all the time when promoting a new yogurt, or food, or
  7. Any advice on the structure of a reel? Is it best to lump footage from one project next to each other or sprinkle it throughout? I have heard little tips like start out with a shot of a beautiful girl to show you know how to make an actress look good, etc. Any other good rules of thumb? Thanks guys, Joshua Jones
  8. Hi, I'm a 15 year old just starting out and learning fast. Film runs in my family, and with the DSLR revolution, I've been given more creativity than ever before. I've got a T2i and a 7D, along with a L-series 24-105 and a few others. I'm curious to see what the real world thinks of my work, so linked below is my reel, tell me what you think! My reel isn't quite updated, so if you're interested, watch my other videos on Vimeo as well (I'd really appreciate it). Only constructive criticism and advice please.
