    Only in the sense that there's probably a pithier way to write a 7, 8, 9+ line paragraph.

    And, if I may, I've noticed, that your style, has a lot of extraneous commas, which are not only...

    First off, my comment about "developing plot from character or character from plot" in your other thread applies here, too. But a few things in this thread I'd like to address:

    You need to make a firm decision on whether you're developing plot from character or character from plot. Either one can work, but trying to do both, at best, ends up with you chasing your own tail,...

    99% of specs don't get made; they serve as writing samples which, if they're good enough, get the writer in the door to pitch on open assignments. And 99% of the specs that do get made, only do so...

    Neither Pany's 1.4X or 2X teleconverter is compatible with either version of the 100-300mm lens.

    But AFAIK it hasn't been established that 24p = 24Hz (like 60p = 60Hz and 50p = 50Hz), so filmguy123 and I were discussing the possibility that 24p might be 60Hz with 3:2 pull down (similar to how...

    With all of your disclaimers seconded, it seems to me that a shutter angle of less than 120 degrees should result in "fast" AF even with 24p 3:2 pull down. i.e. 119 degrees (or 1/72 rounded to 1/80)...

    Thanks for not taking offense.

    With all due respect, the vast majority of the time, flashbacks are a poor choice.

    First, your goal is to tell the story in the most effective and affective way possible. By definition, flashbacks...

    Key word there is "should". i.e. not "must". In other words, would it be nice? Yes. Is it a universal requirement? No.

    What's more important IMO (although still not a universal requirement) is a...

    If you'll forgive me answering a question with a question: why is it critical to the story that one of the main characters is a gang leader? The answer to that will answer your original question.

    You mean like the U.S. show The Office? Does that air in Portugal? Without a bit more detail or point of comparison, I'd say yes, it sounds like you are correct.

    True. But there's also the focal length difference to consider. And while I wouldn't be comfortable shooting video in uncontrolled circumstances at even the FZ1000's 400mm (equiv.), it seems like the...

    No. As Greg_E noted, you need to work with the sound guy and get a full mix (not just the mics/PA) from the board, and then sync in post. (And FWIW, I use a TASCAM DR100 Mk II and Zoom H6.)

    The right one for the job. Seriously, remove budget as a constraint and you should get a bunch of different lenses (and cameras) so you always have the perfect one for the circumstances at hand.

    "Power zoom" has nothing to do with focal length. (It means you can zoom using an electronic switch, as opposed to physically turning a ring on the lens.)

    Yup.


    Nope. That would be "filtered" or "on phone", etc.


    Yup. Essentially, dialog that is not heard in the scene. (i.e. added in post)

    For Highland's full $30 price, I would recommend you spend a bit more and get Fade In ($50) which also does Fountain. Or wait for a sale on Highland. (I got it when it was on sale for $15.)
