    Holy crap! This is alarming. Hopefully this new strain doesn't show up elsewhere, although if I were a betting man, I'd say it most likely will, either through spread or another spontaneous mutation....

    Moderna definitely has the edge here. Their vaccine doesn't need as low a temperature and can be stored in any hospital or pharmacy freezer, and lasts longer in refrigeration.

    Asian cultures generally stress conformity to the group. Western cultures prize individuality. Both have their upsides and downsides, but in a pandemic, the Western attitude is mostly downside.

    My first projector was DLP with a fairly fast wheel and I still definitely noticed the rainbow effect. Noticed them less with time, but all my projectors since have been LCD. LCD's used to not be as...

    TV's are dirt cheap now so price wise, I'd say it's a wash up until the 80-85" range. Since it's a living room, I'd just go with a TV set. Even a tiny amount of light spill can ruin the contrast on...

    I saw Nomadland at TIFF this year, which was virtual. Good film. The non actors never made me forget they were non actors but it did give the film an authenticity. David Stratharin impressively...

    I should add, make sure whatever space the boom operator is in, whatever is behind him is static. No moving tree or things flapping.

    You could still probably match the exposure in post pretty easily. With the tools today, I wouldn't call this time consuming. Now if it was a moving, traveling shot, that increases the difficulty ten...

    If it's a static shot it's pretty simple. Lock off the camera. Shoot the wide with the boom operator in frame. Then clear him out after the take and get a clean plate. Then matte the two together.
