    There's No Faking real Flares

    http://vimeo.com/68443110   This is my new graphic, in animated form. I created and animated it in PowerPoint (I've been animating in PowerPoint since elementary school). I then played the animation on my Dell 30" monitor and recorded the monitor with my GH2, Kowa anamorphic, Konica AR 40mm and Tokina diopter all on a tripod. Then I moved the monitor out of the scene and recorded various flares with a flashlight. Brought it all together in Final Cut Pro, set the flares as additive layers, and added some grain overlay effect. I think the outcome is something clean-cut but with a dash of organic mojo that is difficult to achieve with an all-digital animation. There's no faking those real flares!

    The last JVC product I encountered were VHS tapes my parents used to record TV shows in the 90s.

    The Diopter Thread.

    Bioskop, I think you mean the 62mm one, that`s +1.6 and achromatic. The 72mm are usually +1, and both are still quite cheap. That's it. From now on, I'm never writing achromatic again. Just acrobatic. It's muuuch more apropriate, and enhances their quality and performance! hahahahahahaha :D

    The truth? Good films end up shelved ALL THE TIME.   Great films often get lost in the system.    Brilliant ideas often never get funded. The best scripts, the ones that get passed around back and forth -RARELY- get greenlights.   About 15 years ago, there was a round table with Francis Ford, Spike Lee, Scorcese, Spielberg and others, and they ALL confessed they struggled to get their next film made.    Wait, it gets better....   The days of a Tarantino or Rodiriguez getting through the door and blowing up are slim to none. Even during the heyday of 90's indie cinema, only a few got past the gatekeepers...because even on a low indie level, there are gatekeepers.   There are only a hand full of sales reps, and only a couple dozen distributors who have handled projects you've heard of. The festivals are set up like getting into Harvard Law....some are there on merit, but most on pedigree and association.   Think the internet is the great equalizer? It is. But it's also a slush pile of camera tests, and garbage that few people can wade through.   Which means a guy like Spielberg who was big man on campus, and owned his own campus feels the heat of a more democratizing process, and studios reacting by only producing sure thing major blockbusters with toy and product tie ins, so they can make back their marketing budgets. (Even Django had action figures).   All the while, indie films take even less economical risks, less creative risks, and the gatekeeping requires you the filmmaker to be the Prom King/Queen or the captain of the football team to get through that system. It means the big festivals have already selected films connected with a hand full of known industry people, before the submission deadlines. It means more than half the films a Sundance are repped by one man. It means distributors are offering award winning films deals in the 50k range, before you pay out E&O insurance, and differed costs. It also means distributors are making offers of 5K for a feature film, for world rights, and doing it with a straight face.   This is the reality we're up against. Creative filmmaking is not as important to getting your film seen as creative salemanship, and business. This is what we're all up against.

Can't get it any cheaper than this probably and the quality isn't bad at all.     Will post a better picture of this setup soon. Was planning to to open a topic about it...

      A good job they didn't have a hand in Django Unchained's distribution.

    Seriously, this is like reminding people they could cook for themselves at home and save a buck or two everytime someone suggests a new restaurant. It's retarded! I could give you an endless list of things you could make or build for yourself and save loads of money in the process, but what's the point? We all know we can build our own computers and save 10 cents in the process, it's just that most of us have better things to do, get over it. Building computers is a great thing for sure... if you're into building computers! But if you're into filmmaking or movie editing, then you should probably be making or editing films instead. People are here discussing a product they'd like to use (or not), why do you have to come here with the same old talk "oh if you cook at home you can use only the ingredients you like and it's much cheaper". Go build a computer or something! That's all great for people with time and an interest for it, but that's just a few of you. If I get a larger project that requires another computer (or more) I can just grab one at the Apple store, turn it on and log into my apple account, and all my apps are there, do you think a client would wait for me to order all the parts and then spend a few days assembling and troubleshooting a new machine, even if that was what I really wanted to spend my time doing? If I have to spend a day assembling a machine then I'm not saving any money at all. No one's forcing a Mac on you, if you don't like it move along, nothing to see here, I'm sure there's plenty of forums where you can talk about building your own computer and how much you'll save.
