  1. Sorry, Sanveer, took it down since then since I started sending to festivals. I could PM you the new private link if you'd like

    Cool, just curious. Haven't used color wheels much, but a little unsure about them.. Been browsing all the free nle's lately, seeing what I can get away with. weirdly I really like those simple blue-yellow "temperature" and magenta-green "tint" sliders for color when I can get em.

    I kinda freaking love my t3i with prolost and a nikkor lens. Even its lack of detail.. I ended up adding a blur to several shots in a short I did recently. And used the digital zoom at one point. I forgot kendy's picture profile is available! Have to check that out. Good luck, Matt! What color tools are you using, @mercer?
  4. For the really simple stuff, chromebooks are awesome. Kinda funny how even Windows couldn't compete at all with their phones.
  5. Yeah, i was gonna say I'd heard bad things about cinestyle. Thought I'd give it try anyway, but it was barely any flatter than just dialing it flat in camera. Would probably only use it with a lut that was made for it
  6. That took me a second.. thought Madatcha might have been a wrestler. Googled it and everything
  7. ohhhhh! come on. we all love each other :*
  8. that was excellent to read, Kaylee! thank you for taking the time! I hope I don't seem like I'm defending myself on these points.. I do that sometimes. Not helpful, haha great note, I was a little worried about that.. I played both parts (clearly) and dropped the pitch of the guy in plaid just a little. thought it might have been enough, but I'll take another run through to see if I can make it better.. was really worried about doing that in a cartoony way haha hmm.. I was originally going to have the first guy be leaving a party in the adjacent room, to go to the bathroom
  9. Sorry, Kaylee, should work now!
  10. Just kidding, you can be mean. Looking for some feedback before festivals possibly https://youtu.be/6nOFjWfFDc4

    New Camera

    lol, is this topic basically "... SO ANYWAYYY..."? love it. kind of necessary at the moment.. shot my short film recently with the t3i.. still kind of impressed by it. I liked my simple lighting setup a lot. probably the saving factor of the film, since the camera alone isn't exactly stellar. (haven't gotten much feedback yet, but have been digesting. I'll probably just post my film here in like the next couple of days). when I was able to overexpose, the image was really clean. when I needed to underexposed, the grain covered the artifacts and noise really well. probably have to buy a mo
  12. first one probably the a6300? very sony-like to tend toward bluer under the same conditions is 2.. the micro?
  13. yeah, can we not speculate anymore? Mayybe actual investigation (even then being cautious what you share and who you accuse), more responses from Ebrahim's account would be nice, but we're getting nowhere, and it's possible we'll regret saying some of these things.. was not bad to start this topic though of course. Don't want a million others to try to buy that item. I wish there was a thread sooner Can't you report the stolen footage on vimeo? Any more tips on how to avoid being scammed would be great. I'm pretty nervous about that now.. I have about a thousand dollars in the w
  14. Oh yeah, the making of that was crazy. Waking Life is by far my favorite of his though. Or just him in an interview.. he's so spacey and philosophical, i love it
  15. Wasn't trying to actually argue with you either. Just a different taste thing or what have you. All good, good discussion. Yeah my favorite filmmakers always write and direct haha. My short film is really close.. which I didn't expect so quickly. having some people give feedback. Eoshd is its next stop. Admittedly it's a little boring right now maybe, but that's kind of part of the joke, so we'll see! Haha
  16. I just felt that was a little bit of a new topic, and the "answer" was less specific to screenwriting. one of them does a 3 page treatment; another scripts meticulously, even hundreds of scenes that get thrown out, and then opens it up entirely in filming; there's my whatever way, which may not work perfectly, but feels right for now. that style is just difficult, and those strategies could help cater to the story. the story is definitely a separate thing, but personally I would never use story structure as a tool. And you are allowed to. my films will still have raising stakes and conclu
  17. John Cassavetes, Joe Swanberg, Derek Cianfrance, and Jay and Mark Duplass are some of the big ones to use that style where it's basically entirely ad-libbed. Shadows by Ray Carney gives a pretty great look into Cassavetes' style (and the film it's directly about is on hulu). that film was born out of actual improv, then some scenes scripted later, then Cassavetes just screwed with the actors.. didn't give one of the actors the script until the last minute so that she would stumble over her words, insulted another off camera to get him to yell in the scene, etc. a difficult style to perfect, b
  18. This might not be the advice you want, but I really like the theory of not learning how to tell a story at all. Learn what others do, sure, like watch as many films as you can, behind the scenes type stuff all day, but mostly just do whatever you want, and then you've got something original. You make it "wrong", and it could be the best thing ever. A lot of great filmmakers have basically given that advice - Robert Rodriguez, Orson Welles - anyway, just a thought. I know a lot of filmmakers know the rules too, so it's not gospel. I'd still suggest a book if I could think of one, sorry, but goo
  19. Lucabutera, you're doing a full post on this speedbooster? I can wait, but I do have a lot of questions . That's so cool
  20. Think in the announcement they said it has all their previous glass available to use in it, so I think they have it sorted, but that would indeed be a pity
  21. Sorry, just jumped the gun I think, haha, uninformed. Thought the shutter would just take up space and make it matter less that there's a short flange.
  22. Did we already know the shutter was inside the lens..?? That's kind of a buzzkill. Sorry if i just missed that discussion point somewhere... first I'm hearing /:
  23. The origi a7s is still very detailed 1080p, equally nice crop mode for s35, and slog for less of an investment than a c100. If you enjoy the image from sonys, which not everyone does, they really do offer a lot. You lose 4k and ibis from it's big brothers, but that's about it. it's a little better in some ways even. (Did the a6000 get an slog upgrade, or did I dream that? Still pretty nice image from that) Maybe ls300, but that's pushing the price range as well.. maybe a better fit than the c100 though. Nx1 with Andrew's log lut is really nice, but maybe a little videoy sometimes like the gh4.
  24. Yeah, another set of eyes or taking a decent sized break from it if possible would be helpful
  25. Good to hear. I honestly just can't tell because of the content haha. Though all my screens to view it are pretty crappy at the moment too
