Yesterday I sat down with Dave Thies of Tvacom to record a quick podcast on exposure techniques in cinematography. Dave is an awesome Director/DP that works on some major network television shows and always has a lot of great insight on all things film related… In the future Dave and I will be doing actual video […]Read more →
As some of you know, in addition to running this blog and shooting/directing my own films I also work as a colorist through my company Creative Rebellion. More so than anything else that I do day to day, color grading has helped to improve my understanding and approach to cinematography immensely – and one of the […]Read more →
The news of the FCP X 10.2 release this week got pretty drowned out by all the noise at NAB. Naturally, new camera announcements always draw the most attention, and with the internet exploding with new gear reports every two minutes a lot of news got swept under the rug. That said, the new iteration of […]Read more →
Another quick update from the NAB showroom floor – I just finished chatting with a rep from Panasonic who had a number of Lumix GH4’s rigged up with anamorphic lenses, running the highly sought after V-Log cinema profile. For those of you that don’t know, V-Log is essentially a very flat picture profile that may become available for the […]Read more →
I’ve had a love/hate relationship with RED for a long time. My first proper narrative film was shot on the RED One, and since then I’ve shot countless projects on the Scarlet, Epic and Dragon – usually having a solid experience with their gear. That said, in recent years I have been less impressed with their offerings and […]Read more →
Earlier today I posted an article about the upcoming Blackmagic URSA Mini that will be announced tomorrow morning. I noticed the banner hanging at NAB this afternoon (presumably being set up for tomorrow’s Blackmagic Design press conference), and it was clear right away that the URSA Mini would be making a lot of heads turn tomorrow. That said, […]Read more →
I just stopped by the convention center in Las Vegas to pick up my press pass for NAB and couldn’t help but notice this sign (pictured below), announcing the brand new Blackmagic URSA Mini! Tomorrow at 9:30am Blackmagic Design will be holding a press conference (which I will be attending) and I can only imagine […]Read more →
This year more camera manufacturers than ever are opting to announce new cameras right before NAB, as opposed to at the show itself. The latest camera to fall in this category would be the C300 Mark II which was officially announced today and has some impressive (but predictable) specs. In the near future I will […]Read more →
A few weeks back I was asked to shoot a promo piece for a local LA model who needed content for her new website. This was a very small project I shot/edited with no crew, and had the intention of also showing in here on the blog to discuss slow motion work on the GH4. I […]Read more →
High dynamic range cameras have been all the rage lately, and for good reason. Arri set the gold standard for DR with their Alexa a few years back, and today just about everyone wants to shoot with a camera that can pull 13 or 14 stops of dynamic range. Unfortunately though, not everyone owns an Alexa (or […]Read more →
