Today Apple announced a number of new products including updates to their iPad lineup, a new Mac Mini, and a brand new iMac – which may be one of the best 4K editing systems you can get your hands on. The MacPro is undeniably still going to be a faster computer, but for the majority […]Read more →
A while ago I posted an article about FCP X getting it’s big break on an unknown $100MM Hollywood feature film, and in the past week details have finally emerged that the film in question is Will Smith’s upcoming feature “Focus”.

One of the biggest reasons that high end cinema cameras are so preferable to shoot on over DSLRs or other prosumer cameras, is because of the flexibility that they have in post. Cameras like the Arri Alexa, Sony F55, and RED Epic/Dragon all feature raw recording to allow for maximum creative freedom when color grading. Ironically […]Read more →

I wrote an article […]Read more →
After an overwhelming response to my recently released Guide For Capturing Cinematic Images With Your DSLR, I decided to take things a step further by organizing an in-person digital cinema course this fall. There’s nothing quite like having hands on experience on a real set to jumpstart your knowledge and understanding of the craft of cinematography. The […]Read more →
There is no denying that the pace of the average feature film today is faster than ever before. It’s become quite common for the first act of a movie to be jam packed with enough plot points to sustain an entire movie, and while in some cases having a fast paced film may work (particularly if it falls into the action/thriller genre), […]Read more →
