Rokinon (Samyang) released a new 50mm Cine lens a couple weeks ago, and I grabbed it immediately! I bought a couple of their Cine lenses last year (which I used for ANGEL), so I was pretty excited that they were finally introducing a 50mm lens in their line-up.
There's little doubt that eventually 4K will be the new standard. With 4K cameras, TVs, and even laptops becoming more and more popular, I'm certain in a few years 4K will be as normal as 1080p is today. However, 4K cameras are still missing this important feature.
The concept of renting rather than buying gear isn't new to the professional video production world. What would be the point of buying expensive gear that won't be used often when you can just rent? The thing is, this concept isn't just limited to "the pros."
This is my follow up post on keeping morale high on set. You can read part 1 by clicking here. In Part 1 I mostly went over some of the causes of low morale on set, and in this post I'll go over some of the solutions. Let's get to it!
Web Series are gaining popularity more and more everyday. With so many people watching videos online, it's not as required to have a major distribution deal to get your project seen. In today's post, I interview Filmmaker Eric Won on his indie web series "The Division."
I've been wanting to make a post about morale for a while now. Keeping morale high on set is one of the little things that tend to get overlooked a lot, but it's one of the most important tasks you can do on any film set. Let's start with defining morale.
I found myself in one of the hardest situations I've been in years this summer: Stranded and alone (filmmaking-wise). I spent the summer in a small Tennessee town where my parents live, and while there I decided to make a short film. What I assumed was going to be a simple project turned into a nightmare.
In the world of low/no budget Filmmaking finding a reliable non-paid crew can be a nightmare. For smaller shoots lasting 1 or 2 days it's usually not too big of an issue, but for anything longer than that it's almost impossible for some to put together a dependable team that is will to go through the hurdles with you.
With all the recent news of new cameras and Filmmaking gear coming out, I began to notice something. I guess I've noticed it before but never took the time to think about it. What I'm seeing is that a lot of us Filmmakers (myself included) keep waiting and waiting and waiting for that perfect time to make a movie.
Hey guys! If you sense some slight anger in this blog post, that's because I'm really getting tired of a dangerous creature that roams independent film sets. This creature is aggressive, rude, annoying, and will stop at nothing to ruin your film. I do not know the land these creatures come from, all I know is the name we give them in our world: Know-it-alls.
