    • The extent of aliasing depends on how the smaller resolution is interpolated to the larger one. If it looks 'like hell' then it's probably doing a simple pixel multiplier  converting one HD pixel into 4 identical UHD pixels. If interpolated by better methods it can look very smooth with minimal aliasing. Even HD displayed 1:1 on an HD monitor can have horrible aliasing depending on the viewing distance / magnification.
    • In my work (home for the elderlies) 90 % of the clients have dementia. They have forgotten the meaning of, well, basically anything abstract. Their imagined social status, their illusion of autonomy, their professional ambitions, their whole anxiously upheld public persona: gone for good. Emotions remain intact to their last breath. At some stage they have forgotten the words to express them. Have they lost their humanity?  The ability to think, to mentally function, to use reason, is an extension of the brain. A relatively new tool in evolution. As powerful as it potentially is, it turns dangerous, destructive, genocidal, if it loses contact with the emotional core, the real needs of the individual. Everyone would agree. How does this relate to filmmaking? Do we question this whole field of activity because being shown a video doesn't feed anybody? Why not? On the other hand, it's a means of communication with many connections to the subconscious. Less abstract in many ways than language. Do we question language? Sometimes we should. The sense for our own and our neighbor's needs is numbed. We should listen to the heart (as cheesy as this sounds) more often, and it communicates non-verbally.
    • Which is interesting because usually they alias like hell. That aliasing creates the feeling of "sharpness" eventhough the monitor can't display the 4k. But if someone made a camera that aliased like that, it would be mauled as shit 8)
    • Full ACK. A very experienced (and successful) producer told me two years ago: "You HAVE to understand, film making is NOT an art. It's a business!". He was right and this will never change, as gear, traveling, etc., all cost money... Art does NOT bring food on the table or pays bills. Only customer's money does. And customers don't buy art or colours, they buy your attitude, competence, performance and (hopefully) results they need. And - in 99 percent of cases - this is completely different from expectations/dreams of "artists". @Ed_David I like your post...Film makers don't live in a vacuum, they have the right to express their opinion, even in politics. BUT people became intolerant nowadays, many of them probably beeing too intolerant to discuss other people POV. Instead of dialogue, there is only debasing other people POV and hate. And that's the same for your potential customers - some will agree your opinion, but others will hate you...and will not hire you. Probably because their emotional inner life outpasses tolerance and objective decisions... @Neumann Films And still...if we can not express our opinions and thoughts, what is then the sense of our democracies? During communism there was a political censorship...Do we get now some kind of economical censorship? Potential employers not hiring you, because of your thoughts and opinions? Miserable attitude, this... The such called "Political Correctness" is only for blind followers...I am photographing & filming protests and violence (leftists, conservatives, nazis, "alt-right", etc.) for years now. Everytime I plublish my work, I get bashed by political opponents: If capturing violent leftists, the leftists attack me (verbally) and conservatives and "alt-right" applaude me....If I capture nazi violence and dumbness, I get attacked by nazis and applauded by leftists...But none of them understand, I do NOT sympathize with the one or other side...
    • @Ed_David “And where are we?” I get it, but placing various labels or using anecdotal phrases is just too easy, especially if one has the means to approach things differently. They (labels) can also be misinterpreted or misrepresented by those who have different life experiences or just ignorant for whatever the reason, willfully or not. In such cases it may be best to try to educate or raise awareness in some way. If you feel the need to help, share, enlighten or educate others in this regard, I would recommend that approach. Less talk more doing, not only sounds better, but it also comes across as a more genuine when a real effort with actions are made rather than assuming with labels. If you honestly feel you have so much “privilege” then maybe use it in a more effective and positive way. I see people quite often with much less “privilege” still doing great things to bring awareness and positive changes to long standing issues found in their own communities around the world. If they can actually do something, you and your “privilege” surely can. Sometimes you just have to get out of a comfortable narrative zone, and to hell with the consequences really. Often one has to be at least a little bit crazy. So slightly crazy can equal crazy good. Use your well established professional “chops” that have developed, along with your immediate network/connection resources when needed to create things (documentaries, films, etc.) that you find interesting, meaningful or worthy to further promote and bring awareness to such issues. I’m sure you are surrounded by like minded individuals that believe in doing such non-commercial side projects already… get new friends if not. It can be difficult day-in and day-out and somewhat unsatisfying at times by being involved in the creation of maybe less meaningful content that is sometimes generated when working in the commercial production space. Use any longer downtime between intense gigs to work on your own project ideas covering privilege, discriminatory practices, workplace conditions or any other issues that you have raised in the past. When you’re busy focusing on some side passion projects or just out to create something more positive through awareness instead, that passion project itself also helps to prevent your mind from wandering a bit towards any negativity floating around. Positive thoughts help lead to positive things. One cannot effectively communicate or create such a genuine message to possibly share if negativity clouds the airways. Create something positive to educate using your obvious passion and strong convictions, but just don't tell them (viewers) what to think during the process. Maybe show a different perspective and some viewers would arrive at similar conclusions, have on their own realizations, or just maybe agree to disagree. Regardless, such an approach could start a real dialog and something interesting to share. One also doesn’t have to be a philanthropic billionaire to contribute to society by helping their communities or focus on the different issues that they are passionate about. Use whatever you personally have access to. So use whatever “privilege”, knowledge, opportunity, or ability you feel you may have to bring awareness by actions and create things that maybe you could make a difference or positive contribution towards. Let the negative actions of some condemn themselves, while focusing on any “positive actions” that could ultimately bring a positive influence or encourage others. Whatever project ultimately created in that spirit would be taken seriously and you could then bring your ideas to a wide/broader audience. Most rational people, whether or not they agree with each and every stance you may have on various topics would respect the efforts. At the least you would be putting thoughts into action while others would maybe still be offering nothing, just the same labels or unfortunately perhaps further negativity. Look Mr. Charlie Chicken deep into the eyes and ask him… he seems like an honest bloke. If you ask him nicely maybe he would even help you work it out, if he is not to busy with his Art Retrospective. Good luck
