    It's not just easier (questionable). It's more versatile. Almost every situation lends itself well to stills. Video requires a plan, including processing it after. Photos can just be uploaded. And...

    I don't envy people who work on sequels, re-imaginings, etc. It doesn't matter how good of a job they do, or how they try to tell a story, they'll always be either 'doing justice' to the previous one...

    First off, a lot of these are exciting opportunities for people to move into. DSLR filmmaking was supposed to kill the industry as well, because it dropped off the bottom. Yet the independent...

    Of course they notice. They just don't know that they notice.

    Have you ever seen a laser pointer on a screen? You probably have. Cat toys if nothing else. Lasers exhibit a certain interference...

    I have no idea where it got into my head first, but it stuck. Probably related to helicopters, but who knows. Borderlands 2 probably reminded me on top of that.

    Sure, but do you expect everyone to be able to do a passable British accent when they say it? Because otherwise it just sounds ridiculous.

    Is this thread still a thing? That last few responses make me suspicious.

    My username is based on a company I left, so it feels a bit off. A change would be nice. Some variation of 'Gentleman...

    No to any of that for my experience. I factor in the time spent working on concepts, which in my mind covers everything. It's just that I have to actually include everything in the original pricing....

    Volunteers would be easier to find, not sure why people don't just go that route. Although in the SF Bay Craigslist 'no pay' gigs, no matter how legitimate, get attacked like fresh meat in a shark...

    Director of Photography sounds archaic to me at this point, and I work in the right industry to hear it a lot. I don't really think about it since no one actually says the whole phrase out loud, just...

    If it's good? Yes. If it deviates too far I'll just think of it as a totally independent show that loosely relates to the themes of Star Trek. If it has spaceships I'll at least give it...

    Seems like kind of a big jump to conclusions here. Even if these are Klingons, which we only have some uncited caption on equally uncited photos to go off of, they could easily be a variant. That was...

    If it's a well storyboarded commercial or promo piece, I can do a decent cut of a one minute project in maybe five hours (counts color correction).

    For freeform interviews, I'll need a couple of...

    I find a surprisingly large number of uses for bongo ties.

    Also, this is the most financially dangerous thread I've ever seen on this forum.

    Caprica had a lot of potential, and I was quite disappointed. Westworld proves the concepts had market traction. I think Galactica was an amazing study in marketing, and changed a lot in terms of how...

    I used to work with some people that used that as their primary camera, and they did a lot of green screen shooting. Their keys weren't as clean as I'm used to, but it worked. Extremely even lighting...

    That is useful. There's a consistent lack of direction on things like this, not helped by the fact that most of these producers don't know all that much about marketing. Written reviews would also be...

    I don't see it as a question of what you 'need'. If I stuck with need I wouldn't have a lot of the tools I regularly use. For most people it's not a deal breaker (other than the specific case...

    I'm not sure why it would take framing to another level. Can you not see what's in the frame already on a the LCD/Viewfinder/Field Monitor? That sounds needlessly restrictive. I don't fly with them...

    Different people would answer that differently. I don't think it's worth worrying about doing a 4k delivery. In the worst case scenario, if you shoot 4K with the intention of delivering 1080, you'll...

    I can say from experience on one particular PC that an i7 with 16GB of high speed RAM and an R9 family GFX card can play 4k footage from a GH4 with moderate effects just fine. Prices will drop when...

    Why do you want 4k delivery? If this is for theatrical release, you should budget to rent a kit that can get you 4k at high frame rate. I imagine an external recorder can accomplish this. Otherwise a...

    As a side note, fragmentation on drives is no longer an issue. Ever since Windows Vista this has been done dynamically. Besides that, the new caching and memory management...
