  1. I think posted about this one back when we were producing it - Homecoming is a 30-minute neo-noir revenge film shot on the OG BMCC with the idea of making it look like a Scandinavian noir film from late 80's and early 90's - a gritty, dark, low key yet saturated looking film. It got some rave reviews from some underground and horror outlets. Now we have released the movie, and it can be seen on Youtube, via the link below. Beware though, the film is extremely violent and not for the faint of heart. Feedback and comments are welcome!
  2. Okay, just rushed and will have issues then. They'll likely jump ship from the 4K version - unless this one turns out to be something completely catastrophic like their first foray into 4K.
  3. Well, if we're to extrapolate from the past two things will happen: - It'll be rushed but still late and have issues - They'll completely stop supporting the 4K version now and kind of pretend it doesn't exist, much like the URSA and the URSA Mini (non-pro variants). I can't bring myself to care about the resolution increase.
  4. Oh look who just woke up to the fact that we have been given the front seat for witnessing the downfall of a civilization. So nice of you to join us!
  5. The whole thing reminds me of Corey and Trevor from Trailer Park Boys.
  6. Yeah it's the European moniker for the 2-liter, not-quite-GT4 model up until 1998. At least that's the title of the 5th and 6th gens that had the naturally aspirated 3S-GE, I'm not sure what's the reasoning behind the "i". The final 7th gen model however was sold as the GTS, so go figure.
  7. Now that is a damn sweet ride. Nissan has made some freaking nice sport coupes, even though I've never been a huge fan of their regular cars. Car derail is the best derail, so here are my babies. 2003 Mitsubishi Galant sport, which is my daily and bone stock save for some neon lights and the sound system, and a 1998 Toyota Celica GTi, which has a tuned/lowered suspension, a lightened clutch, catback exhaust and a short shifter. Starting it up wakes up my neighbours and it tries to kill me when I do highway pulls.
  8. Low budget video work is getting worse and worse. Where I'm at I'm definitely seeing a trend where quality is getting completely sacrificed to keep costs down in lower budget ad agencies. There's a constant struggle between the demand do cut corners and make things just "good enough" and the actual desire for competitive quality. Often this means things get done unplanned and undermanned. The client expectations-client budget meme is so real it's not even funny anymore and often the budget dictaded downgrades destroy any chances the end product had. It's come to a point where my professional agency work is very rarely of the kind of quality I'd put in my own demo reel - it consists almost solely of productions that are commissioned directly from myself. I'm firmly in the quality camp and keep telling the agencies I work for that you can't keep making mediocrity - you will be eaten alive by hungry newcomers willing to put in the work for less money, and skewing the price/expectation ratio even further. I don't know where it ends. Maybe natural selection will occur, or maybe some kind of crash of video production companies as most become impossible to maintain. We'll see.
  9. This is the first time I've ever seen a thread redeemed by video game fanboyism ?
  10. I for one really missed the console fanboy wars of my youth between sega/nintendo and sony/microsoft and am overjoyed to see grown adults still acting the same as my 12-year old schoolmates, just about cameras instead of vidya games. Now may I interest you in a link to a youtube video of "Why Xbox 360 is the TRUE LEET GAMERZZ choice and why I switched over from the Wii"? It's very convincing and supports all my arguments I promise.
  11. Welp, we've reached a point where it's impossible to tell what's an ironic shitpost and what's serious fanboyism.
  12. I don't care about PR. I just think one could do some cool things with the 3d180. The depth felt really convincing even in the static birthday demo shot, so I figure making a high speed chase or a Hardcore Henry-like fight scene with that could produce some pretty interesting results. Of course it could also produce just motion sickness ?
  13. I'm completely hooked on VR stuff so this is really tempting. Makes me want to do an action short in 3D180. Hook that thing on a face rig and pull some stupid stunts. Maybe a little reckless driving. Or maybe a first person splatter movie. Watching through Oculus Rift the sample clips looked quite nice. The 3D effect is very strong and I was actually surprised at how much more impressive it looked through VR when compared to desktop.
  14. There must've been something seriously wrong with your copy of the URSA, unless it was the 4K version (in which case sure it was a piece of shit). I can even underexpose pretty heavily on the 4.6K (Running on old pre-manual-blackmapping firmware) without issues with noise. No FPN at 800ISO, you get some fine grain on extreme underexposure but even that's fixable with a little NR. This is the first time I've heard there's noise on the midtones. The 120fps windowed mode is pretty lackluster on the OG 4,6K though, and you really need to ETTR to get a clean image because any noise gets heavily pronounced by the crop.
