    Wonderful. I would imagine your mother would be impressed, not. I bet your father would kicked you right in the ass if he was alive. I would, I know how people think in the area you live. Hard working, God Fearing people. Embarrassing. You ought to be ashamed.☹️

    Just make it happen. Give up the damn excuses. I am going to fall over from old age before this happens, along with everyone else. We all have terrible experiences. Suck it up. Yeah you either hate my ass or you get off you ass and make it happen. It's up to you. That's the way I roll. No time for losers even now, Take over for me, or just exist. Ugly if not. You don't Ever want to see what I have seen, I grew up from a kid to a old man in 2 years. They trained me too well. But learned from it and moved forward. Everyone has a skill, utilize it and gain from it. Life is hard as heck. It isn't easy. No excuses.

    A feature film with one person, right, trying out 30 different lenses. You are a writer, not a shooter., Nothing wrong with that. It isn't for the meek trust me. If I was meek I could have Never been a ENG shooter or the reporters I worked with, male and female. I would stick the camera up your butt if I had too, along with their mike. That's what is takes. You don't ask, you just do it permit or not.. If you want something you make it happen. That is what separates the men from the boys.

    You can do ANYTHING if you want to do it. Don't give me that permit stuff. That is a Cop Off. You aren't there for hours, days, weeks. If you want it to happen make it happen. Release form, that is total bullshit, they are by standers. You aren't making a feature film, get real. They are in the public domain. Your making silly excuses. So make up release forms and give them to them. How hard its that. Make it happen.

    What is wrong with attention?? Are you embarrassed about what you are trying to accomplish? You think what you are doing is wrong, not moral or something. It is Maybe your job, your life's desire. Your sure as heck are not going to sneak around doing this stuff your whole life. If you want to do it do it. If not give it up. It's not for you. Print up some kind of Business card with your email address, your web site and show them what you can, and want to do. It might not be worthy in your eyes but it shows you are trying, you are learning, you Want to succeed. Heck ask for their help, ask them to be in the thing you are trying to create. it isn't going to happen unless you Make it happen. Trust me I am not cute. I get it done if I want to get it done. I was trained to do that at a young stage of my life. It was life or death in reality. I have never wavered. What you are trying to do overall is not possible sneaking around. It is not cut out for everyone to do all of it. If all you want to do is write than write, nothing wrong with that. Video is Hard.

    I really don't think I would Ever use a zoom lens for video if I had the money to buy primes. Just my thought. Sure ENG work, serious stuff, Nah. Sort of sounds like you are clueless where the actors, scenery is really suppose to be located. No storyboard, pre thought involved in it. Luck Rarely works out trust me. As a writer that thought ought to have been in your mind when you wrote it. That is how a story flows. You can't take chunks of what happened when you got there and make something fluid. You have to direct it to make it happen. I want Bob right here on the X. Move, you are fired. You have a dream, a mission, make it happen. That is the difference between followers and leaders. Hmm, I got lucky, or I made it happen. Apply that to your life, don't count on luck. 50/50 Never works. The odds are against you.

    You have to grow some balls and do it like it is suppose to be done. Anyone can half ass it. A crew using bounce lights, Audio and believe me you can get by doing it. Everyone gets out of your way and lets you do it. They will be fascinated by you and your crew. Trust me. People that make stuff happen make stuff happen. They lead. Best advice I can ever give you. Look like you know what you are doing and go forward. That is how you get though life. Lead, don't follow. Go for the ring. Don't suck hind tit. You will always be lacking if you slack off and do the least. But treat everyone equal, everyone is not a leader, they are looking for one. You will reap the rewards even in your video stuff. I am not saying step over people. Just learn your craft, use the best stuff there is you can afford and go for it. You can't never be best at every aspect of Video, never happen. If all you can do, and do that great is one aspect of video you are way ahead of the average person. Have others help you. That is why Hollywood exists. Combined skills in one area with one goal.

    Yeah but if you are younger now you can still use these Cine lenses for years and years. I don't see how a even 1,000 Dollars investment in one is a big burden when you can move them from camera to camera. That was and is the beauty of PL lenses. They fit nearly every camera even if you jump ship as they say. B4 lenses even fall in that category. They are still in with the big boy stuff. They have been around for 40, maybe 50 years now or more. The serious Broadcast stuff rarely changes fast. TV stations can not afford to change very often. And they are where the rubber hits the road as they say.. I really don't think I would take a Canon, Nikon f1.2 lenses over a Zeiss CP.2. Not if I was serious about video down the road. T2.1 is pretty damn good on there normal lenses. This is not 1996 where you Have to shoot at ISO 64 or something less now.
  9. Well I would imagine he has Snapped a few snap peas in his life. Really like it. Well done. I am sure he has a ton of knowledge to enjoy, to soak up.
  10. Yeah people might not like the camera size or the weight of it, lack of lenses, on and on, but there are Very few people here think the output is crap. So yeah that is a sore spot.

    Yeah but like it has been said, it is not desirable to add sharpening in Post. So I want the sharpest camera output and the sharpest lens hanging off the thing. If I Need soft that day put a filter on it, rub your greasy fingers all over it, or correct it in Post. But you can't get back what you never had. And then there is no consistency to using all these odd ball lenses if you need to change focal length. True Cine lens sets have the same T stop and the same look through the whole lens line other than extremes at each end. Some sets are all exactly the same diameter for ease of focus pulling rigs. There is good, valid reasons Pros use them. Rental Houses don't have a bunch of odd ball lenses in their inventory. Sure for Photo you can use nearly anything. You can spend 4 days in Photoshop fiddling with that one shot if you desire to. Video is a different beast. What good is having 50 odd ball lenses when you really only need 3 or 4 damn good Cine lenses. The total cost in this day and age is probably about the same. Even for Anamorphic I think the Leica Summicron R 50mm f2 is a Way better lens to use than the Helios 44M 58mm f2. The Leica is in a whole different league.
  12. I kind of figured it was Photoshoped lol. I was sort of hoping you got kicked up to Executive Producer and seen the light
  13. I think what is funny we could build a wall around the whole country 300 meters high and it would be a drop in the bucket for all the money we waste on a yearly basis. We don't need no new taxes, just a little oversight lol. I think every Federal job ought to have a 6 month term limit. If you ran a Real business the way the government is run 6 months would be tops before they came and took all your stuff.
  14. Eh, they are Very effective and rather cheap to use. That even provide shade and wind breaks when not in use. Sort of wham-bam-thank-you-mam. https://www.kcet.org/shows/lost-la/hanging-trees
  15. His story sort of reminds me of this.
  16. If you are young, I am too old to do it for a couple of reasons, too old too dig, too old to live long enough for them to grow, start planting Hanging Trees lol. You will need them down the road trust me. It is Only going to get worse.
  17. Sorry, no way I am going to try to read all of that in it's present format. Appreciate the effort though.

    There is no such thing as a Small Cine lens lol unless you are talking 8mm film stuff. PL Cine Lenses are humongous. https://cameraambassador.com/collections/lenses

    Oh I am talking about the MF Cine lenses. For FF buy the 4 T1.5 lenses. Add a really wide one later one. You don't want the AF ones. https://www.samyanglensglobal.com/en/product/product-srch.php?category=D&camera_type=&sensor_size=&lens_type=&mount=201&best_for=&f_category[]=D&mount[]=201
  22. Oh my God did IronFilm Trim his beard and get a Haircut!! He looks well.....normal lol. Grats if true.
  23. Yeah and buy it from the Apple store. Even more than half the ones that say they are Real Apple ones on eBay, Amazon are cheap knockoffs. Huge scam on those sites.

    This be true. For video work they can't be beat overall for the money they cost. They are what most people really need. That and a few Pro Mist filters and you are set.
