  1. Fuzzynormal, you should have known better than to try to tell the alcoholics that they don't need alcohol anymore. Just look at the addict-levels of denial and rationalization above. The first step is admitting you have a problem.
  2. ‚ÄčI think it's part of a uniquely american brand of obnoxious youth culture. Ties in with the selfie narcissism trend.
  3. I had hopes for Stage 32 but around my area it seems dead. Roger Deakins' forum is mind-blowing in that he actually posts and answers questions. http://www.rogerdeakins.com/forum2/viewforum.php?f=22&sid=e5a6fd4a4ca28e73cff07fb978b95f41
  4. It's almost like the choice of hardware takes a backseat to ideas and collaborators among successful filmmakers. Maybe we should start looking for a forum about real filmmaking and not spec comparisons?
  5. Check out NYU SCPS. http://www.scps.nyu.edu
  6. This is sort of a video version of a "goodbye to all that" essay. http://gothamist.com/2014/12/30/the_best_times_people_said_goodbye.php
  7. If only oscar-nominated cinematographers were smart enough to read this eoshd. http://nofilmschool.com/2015/02/which-cameras-were-used-oscar-nominated-films-2015
  8. I started out on a 7D in 2011 and moved to a BMCC EF in 2013, so having a camera with a waveform monitor, XLRs, built-in NDs, even a proper top handle is a complete revelation. The DPAF works better and smoother than I expected but it's a bit of a drag having it restricted to the center of the frame. I would echo what other owners say about it - on paper the camera can't compete specs-wise but the features it offers causes it to "get out of the way" like all good technology. You are free creatively to focus on the moment at hand and get the shot. For awhile I was enjoying doing stills shoots more and I realized that's because all my gear was made for stills. Now that I have a video camera my stress levels have plumetted. Here's a couple shots with a DJi Ronin and a Tokina 11-16 with the DPAF activated. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ewtis5w1s2pyz66/Lynn B-Roll Misc.mp4?dl=0
