  1. Although this year we have a fellow Greek in the Oscars, for me they are dead since the LALA land disaster. If you witnessed this mega cringe where they had the whole cast on stage thinking they had won and then they took them all down...i dont want to watch the oscars again. The second problem is the PO overdrive, where they put films like "WE WUZ KANGS" aka Black panther contesting for best pictures, and all the PO bs where people get nominated because "me too" or because they are minority.
  2. elite video player and private hosting is a solution. https://codecanyon.net/item/elite-video-player/10013114 we can host in googledrive or MEGA, and link the the player directly embeded in our websites. that way you are not putting your work in the whim of greedy executives
  3. bump any good alternatives? Wistia at 100 bucks a month is way expensive and could be hit next,
  4. You beat me to it Andrew, I was thinking of starting a thread on leaving VIMEO, after 164 video uploads being a paid member since 2011 they send me dmca notices and some threatening messages of this type: > " You have 5 minutes to download your video due to a copyright strike" sent in the dead of night I am in Greece by the way 7 hours time difference from NY. >If you do not wish to contest the strikes but are seeking access to your other videos, we are able to place your account into Temporary Access Mode. This will restore your account in a limited capacity for 72 hours so that you are able archive your videos. However, there are a few caveats: 1) You may only be granted access if you are not filing a formal counter-notification regarding the strikes on your account. 2) We can only provide 72 hours of access. Since this is automated, we cannot extend the access period. Any content that wasn’t downloaded may be lost. 3) The videos will be restored with a restricted privacy setting. They will be locked and only available to you for archival purposes. They will not be publicly available. 4) Per our repeat infringement policy, you may not open any additional Vimeo accounts So for 3 songs that were in some ancient videos long forgotten not embedded anywhere, one of them Private, they actually HOLD HOSTAGE another 160 videos,.I talked to them and they had the courtesy to allow me to download them over a week but i have to sign off any rights over that..i have left the account in Limbo What I see is that they are driving out all the small creators that used to be the paying backbone of Vimeo, they killed the FORUM where voices of members were heard and they are turning VIMEO into a stock footage video gallery (eeeeek). In the meantime WISTIA is way expensive 100 bucks per month, youtube is a temporary solution..
  5. after 1 million years...more of my money will go to canon. I CANT WAIT
  6. I aggree but there is something we can do, there is a pettition to delete his Youtube channel i have already signed it. https://www.change.org/p/youtube-delete-logan-paul-s-youtube-channel
  7. us being born at internet BC and our kids being born with the internet as a "nanny" at internet A.D., my son doesn't watch tv. I have limited his access to youtube after the daddy finger crossover Dino crossover Lighting mcqueen autism inducing videos drive him insane as mentioned above. We filter the crazy, its sad that the next generations view these things as tame. Not at all shocking anymore
  8. the canon 17-55mm F2.8 could hit the mirror and it also could not focus to ∞ i have a moded 85mm FD 1.2 and it cant reach to ∞ because it would break the mirror, if the sigma 18-35mm does take filters its a good choice,since it will work directly no fuss, and with 72mm thread i have the tiffen nd to fit andrew and now that the canon Mark 3 is my second cam I can shoot ML raw without stress
  9. Thank you guys, im looking at the sigma lines, every time its the same thing i look all the lenses and end up selling a kidney and buying canon... my options so far are Voigtlander Color Skopar 20mm f/3.5 SL-II and canon EFS 17-55mm f/2.8 the sigma 18-35 as proposed by most is unusable where i live I need a vND as the sunlight is scorching everything.. about the tokinas...well i have managed to stay clear of them all these years! you could use a plastic lens and get better footage. i need a wide lens so that i get a 35mm or even standard 50mm when in crop mode 4k thank you for all the input!
  10. Hello, im looking into wide lenses to get over the crop factor in 4k in the 5d mark 4 any suggestions for lenses would be great, my widest at the moment is the 35 canon 1.4 and a 40mm voightlander im looking for lenses that are cheap and work on the new canon thanks!
  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWPyRSURYFQ Ok, check some scenes on the cinematography of the 1982 film What do you see? Well people have actual skin tones. When I saw the first scenes of the new one I was shocked, mainly because I love Deakins. How can he make something look so bad? It reminds me the starwars second trilogy fail. And how can you praise this 'film" not even shot on film. Too much CGI! Too much orange/ blue grading. This is not Deakins work, this is the graders film. Not a natural skin tone in sight, not a natural light or color in sight. Every scene looks like a commercial, fake, very proppy, very artificial and lacking in that futuristic reality, everything too clean and new and staged. Poorly designed surroundings no grit no dirt no reality. The first film was so fantastic because it looked so real! Coming to the acting, dear me, I can forgive the Gosling who is like a replicant in real life anyway. But JARED LETO? that babyfaced ass*&le? Too young too Jokery Too typecasted.. my humble opinion..
  12. thanks! i already follow titos's stuff but i hadnt come up to this!
  13. thanks but the GH4 is not a full frame camera, so you wouldn't see the vignette with a 100mm..
  14. Hi, has anyone tried the Sankor 16C on a full frame camera with a 100mm taking lens? I have it on a pentacon 135mm and I am thinking to get a 100mm canon to use it on my Canon but im afraid it will vignette as hell.. I cant find any footage on a 100mm, although it is said it can be used, kind regards c
  15. to get the "film look" over video, try to use less grading and more in camera capturing of the light and color, so as your footage can look beautiful without hours of grading. Never say ill fix it in post...as for all these luts and things i think they tend to look all the same, you should try to create your own coloring look, and i think less is more, if the end footage looks ungraded for me its a win
