    We had a whole grip truck with us...we tried bounces, silks, rigid reflectors, etc., but we really lost the "naturalness" of the image by doing so. We did use a rigid on the Med shot of the girl in...

    I totally agree with you. Time was the big reason this didn't get sent out to a colorist. Doing it myself, being my first serious attempt at grading, I was totally impressed with the flexibility of...

    We shot our last series of commercial on the Epic. Looked great, but for this spot we definitely wanted a more organic and natural look. I chose the Alexa because I wanted to get that kind of look as...

    Thanks for the feedback, Shooter. You say more creative with the shots? Or the concept? (my team did the script-to-screen on this one)

    Leon, it's heavy! We shot everything handheld. Coming from an...

    First Shoot with Alexa

    We shot run-n-gun on a tight budget, no lighting, with a very quick turn around. But, we have opportunities to use the camera again and I want to make the most of those opportunities. So, looking for...

    Text Stroke past 100?

    I'm a functionally average AE user. This seems like a simple thing, but I've asked around and tried everything I can think of and I haven't figured it out yet.

    I'm trying to take white text, and...

    You might heck your install of CS6 to make sure that you have all of the optional plugins installed. When I initially installed CS6 I was unable to use any MXF or Sony EX footage because I had not...

    Bloke! Great to see you on here!

    Have you considered a monopod instead of a tripod? WAY more compact, cheaper, and you can also do some slider-type shots with it. The Manfrotto 561 is a great...

    This movie was a mess.

    Too many characters, most of which were acted out very poorly. I really...REALLY like Charlize, but her character was a joke. The story was all over the place. Was the movie...

    Cheapies from Target.

    I do a lot of fishing, though, so I'm considering real-glass-lensed Costa's.

    That is a FINE looking machine. Looks like fresh out of the factory in 1970. I rode in a 78 280SE to my high school prom. NO! It wasn't new! Nor was it near as cool as a 1970 280SE.

    Talked to a guy at GoPro when I ordered the new Dive Housing (awesome, btw), and they are moving back the release date of this upgrade to "summer." He said end of June/early July.

    More irritating than the commercial is the fact that this type of ad works on consumers.

    Ryan...very...VERY COOL! Wonderful info.

    The add-a-tap trick is exactly what I was looking for. This could change the way I do a lot of things.

    Thank you.

    There are loads of examples on YT and Vimeo. A lot of guys are using cheap kitchen timers to do cool pans with the timelapse. Very easy to do.

    Customizing Kino Flos

    I think I'm just tipping the iceberg in terms of what Kino Flos are capable of. Right now I have (2) 2' 4Banks and (1) 4' 4Bank. All with their own ballasts, tubes, etc.

    I initially just wanted to...

    Hey everybody! Come see The Hobbit. Now with DOUBLE the frames! Dumb. My love of the jarring 24fps look will never die I'm glad others are seeing through this ploy, as well.
