hi all
just a thought that it would be a greater leap if this site includes another forum that
deals with the 5 C's of cinematography.....
wont it be interesting to discuss the ....lensing for different shots.....composing shots..angles......
movements of camera....and all others.....that play a significant role in the 'FILM MAKING' process
........waiting for that BIG LEAP!
thanks.cheers!!

I'm really glad you explained that - when I saw the five "C's" I was thinking:

coffee
craft service table
catering
"Cut!"
camera

not necessarily in that order)

In a sense I agree.

I would like to see a forum that could discuss the cameraman?s aesthetics of a scene. Peoples approach to coverage, interpreting scripts. Approaching colour palettes that coincide with telling the story, etc.
Why would you employ a certain lens? Cinematography goes beyond the technical.

You could discuss that in the General category.

Absolutely. Or in the "One the Big Screen" section. We do that a lot anyway, just not formally broken down like the book does. B)

I tend to feel that there is a maximum number of subcategories in a forum before it gets too micro-managed and nobody can figure out the exact forum to post in. We're reaching a limit already. Now if I thought we'd be specifically talking about aesthetics all the time, it may warrant its own category, but we tend to talk about it as part of other subjects or about specific movies, not in the abstract that often.

I agree. I can't even follow how many sub-forums this site has already. :P

Hi,

Regular contributers don't look at the sub forums. Every time I log on, I view all new posts of interest!

I try to "View New Posts", but when time is limited, I concentrate on "Film and Processing" and perhaps a few of the other specifically film subforums. Since I participate on about a dozen other user groups, and have product development responsibilities at Kodak as well, I sometimes just can't keep up with up to a hundred new postings a day.

It is very important that you choose a topic title that is descriptive: e.g., "Choosing between 5218 and 5229" as opposed to "Help needed" or "Film choice?"

And has often been said, do a search on a topic to see if it has been discussed or answered before, or already has a thread going.
