    ShaunC got a reaction from tweak in Alex Proyas "I'm Building an Indie Film Studio"   
    Yes, I agree. A little more BTS stuff would be nice. It started of well but seemed to taper off. Don't mind some of the shorts he's producing, but a glimpse into the process would add to it.

    ShaunC got a reaction from mercer in Best MFT backup / second camera body   
    Yep, I've said it elsewhere in these forums, but I love my battered GH3. I shoot with a GH5 mostly now (and a GX85), but always keep the GH3 close. And yeah, there is something really appealing about its black and white.

    Panasonic GH3.
    More than good enough. I use a GH5 now for work, but I still can't bring myself to sell the GH3 (not that anyone would buy it). Great HD, battery life still solid, built like a tank. Paired with my Voigtlander 25mm (itself battered and scratched to shit) it has a special voodoo.

    Yeah, this is a good set up, but it's much better with a Metabones Speedbooster.

    Speedbooster?
    I'd much rather pair it with 2x teleconverter.

    ShaunC got a reaction from Thpriest in Whats your dream videography kit?   
    corporate / education / some narrative 
    My dream is to keep it all in one backpack. (It never works out that way, but I see no reason why it shouldn't) 
    So ...
    (gear I have)
    GH5, Voigtlander 25mm, Lumix 15mm, Lumix Nocticron 42.5.
    Zoom F4, rode NTG 3 (and cable and pole stuff)
    Any small, semi-decent tripod.

    Hmmmm......  if that is so....
     
    Then swap that Zoom F4 for a Sound Devices MixPre3!

    (and I say that even as a big big big time Zoom F Series fan! Love my F8n)

    I couldn't decide! Thus selected the Fuji which would be good for most work, but then if you really wanted that extra stop and a bit of light for a particular shoot then you've got the Sigmas as well!
     

    Please excuse me while I go list everything everywhere that ever has been made. 
     
     
    As purely for my SOUND PACKAGE I'm going to need a truck to carry it all:


     
    Yes, this truck.  This exact truck. 

    I'm not even joking. 

    My only worry? Is that it might be too small!

    ShaunC got a reaction from Grimor in Alex Proyas "I'm Building an Indie Film Studio"   
    I've already posted Alex Proyas' Youtube channel in the Youtube channel thread, but I reckon this latest development deserves its own shout out. Will be very interesting to watch this unfold. It also seems apparent he's going to be talking a lot about cameras, Blackmagic in particular.

    ShaunC reacted to kye in Who experiments?   
    Probably lots of us do camera tests, but who does experiments?
    Like, make a film:
    using only one lens (or with that crazy lens) only looking up / down with no people with only people walking away with only peoples faces only close-ups non-standard compositions (mostly sky and everything in the bottom quarter of the screen) multiple shots at the same time (eg, like Sliding Doors, or 24) strange speeds, like all footage is sped up or run backwards nothing is in-focus no dialogue dialogue without any pauses in-between start with music or soundscapes you've never worked with and shoot something to match them etc and by 'make a film' I just mean take a bunch of shots and put them together, it doesn't have to have narrative or anything.  I guess in a way these might be experimental or even abstract films.
    I'm thinking about doing more of these myself, just to do things and see what happens.  Explore new angles and ideas.  Learn how they feel and what they do.  It's only trying new things that we can find things to add to our normal style.

    ShaunC reacted to IronFilm in Which Sound Recorder to buy? A guide to various indie priced sound recorders in 2017   
    In terms of the sound world, the Zoom F4 is still very young!

    I feel kinda guilty myself in upgrading from an F4 to an F8n then a Zaxcom Maxx so quickly!

    Have used a Tascam DR60Dmk1 as well (it was what I had owned as a film student). 
    Then went to a Sound Devices 552 / Tascam DR680 combo, then the Zoom F4, each step along that process from the DR60D was a BIG STEP UP!

    You'll not regret the F4, is like night and day vs a DR60D in terms of all of features / ergonomics / quality

    Look, we can talk cameras and video as much as we like. But these guys, well ... I think there's something in this for all of us. God I hope they enter the $200 challenge.

    I also really like the "dark" shots (like 1.44). We're always talking about dynamic range, and IQ etc etc, but sometimes it's all in the shadows. In the murky bits. Makes you look harder. 
    Good stuff.

    ShaunC reacted to kaylee in my first short   
    man... thank you so much for saying that
    my whole idea was ~dark and low contrast, really saturated~ and my 7GB prores render looks GREAT...! but it gets  m u r d e r e d  on youtube. this is not the best quality upload due to this file in particular, but i did tests and......... its rough
    on mobile its exponentially worse. 1080p on the youtube app is not equal to 1080p desktop, and its PARTICULARLY destructive to all the ~pretty dark shots~ that i actually succeeded in making, *not that you can tell* from this upload~! tbh that was sooo frustrating to me, thats a big part of why i was like "i haveta take a lil break from this" ?
    anyway, thats amazin that you totally saw what i was goin for thru it all... makes my day! tysm
    edit: see, lookit this low res png screen grab on tumblr... STILL SOOOoooooo much better smh. i mean the ridiculous banding isnt there u kno

    ShaunC got a reaction from Emanuel in For all those children of the 90s   
    Just came across this post from Hal Hartley on Instagram. He's updating a bunch of his old films, including Surviving Desire. He included a screen shot of updating the colour of Surviving Desire on DaVinci Resolve. Of course, we know filmmakers all over the world use this stuff. Still, it's cool. And if you haven't seen any of Hartley's films, do yourself a favour.
