  1. I pretty much covered myself fine there. Both legally and ethically. I am discussing acceptable and unacceptable behaviour. i didnt say he punched him or that he committed assault. You need to re-read what I wrote. Considering Andrew's post was chock full of assumptions without covering his arse that you are taking issue with what I wrote when I said "if" and stated the hypothetical nature of what i wrote then I am most perplexed!
  2. I also feel whilst Andrew's point admirable in a way, using this incident as an example is very way off mark. Its also so important when citing real life incidents that they are accurate or the words alleged are use. The way you described the incident is rather different to what has come out as being the actually backstory, allegedly. Also please remember producers aren't rich hollywood type execs on this show. They are there to make sure things happen on location. It's an incredibly demending job. You are first to be shouted out and last to be thanked. So allegedly this is what happened w
  3. I agree. I read a quote that the BBC need to learn how to handle larger than life characters. Nonsense. Punching someone is not larger than life. You can't send out a message that "it's ok...it's clarkson being Clarkson!"
  4. Hey Andrew clearly this bothers you the he thing is you are making statements based not upon facts not assumptions. We don't know the full story here but I can tell you this if the presenter of a show I was working on (allegedly) punched a producer the show would be most likely suspended until this was sorted out. Love him or loathe him he is the show. He is what you see, a loutish, arrogant loudmouth. That's why he is so polarising. I personally grew tired of him a couple of decades ago but my post here is not about my personal feelings towards Mr. Clarkson. He does what he does very well
  5. [quote name='QuickHitRecord' timestamp='1347721556' post='18119'] Very nicely done, Philip. Some of your most cinematic work to date! Any chance that you could make the uncompressed file available for download? We are all dying to get a read on the banding/artifacting/macro-blocking situation. I am thrilled how the GH3 is shaping up. I don't feel like I would have been confident bringing the GH2 into several of the shooting situations in this film, but it looks like the GH3 was able to pull it off. It's going to be a tough decision between this and the B
  6. Why can't we all just have a big hug and get along? :) Anyway here we go: http://philipbloom.net/2012/09/15/genesis/ Enjoy. Sweet camera! :wub:
  7. [quote name='Simco123' timestamp='1347680770' post='18081'] Philip Bloom is "the face" of videography technology demonstrator, like the man from Del Monte they need him to say "Yes" because all the lemmings need to be told what is good and what is not by someone with an English accent. Quite frankly I find him condescendinig on his reviews and actually rather rude. Thats said he is pretty good at what he does as a filmmaker. Does Andrew feel the hurt of not being invited? If I was Panny I probably won't extend my invite to Andrew because he i
  8. [quote name='sanveer' timestamp='1347231516' post='17665'] I think Philip (Bloom) just gave Nigelbb a mild heart attack (or a severe one) ... :P Philip, I felt, that even though, your review of the BMCC was technically interesting, it was a little unfair. I feel, it has helped break the slow pace, of unimaginative camera building, and the slow pace of technological developments, that have been cause by the cartel effect of the big camera makers (Canon, Sony, Arri etc). Even though the BMCC is an over-weight, non-weather sealed, behemoth, and the tranfer methods, data
  9. [quote name='Germy1979' timestamp='1347219447' post='17651'] ..I wonder if Michael Bay ever gets on a forum when he's not blowing shit up, sees somebody bashing the piss out of him, and drops the law... Insert foot. [/quote] The difference being that Michael Bay is not part of this small community that we have...little bit of respect for each other goes a long way! :)
  10. [quote name='nigelbb' timestamp='1347019020' post='17531'] The good thing about Phillip Bloom's work is while he is an excellent camera operator & has a great eye for an image he is no DoP so most all of his work just uses available natural light. Contrast this with the super-slick professional demo piece 'Afterglow' from John Brawley on the the BMCC involving 1.2K HMI lights, reflectors & flags & a even a Steadicam operator all designed to make the image from the camera look as good as possible. Philip's Naked Cinematographer approach is th
