I rarely find these things funny, but that was hilarious!!

Yeah, yeah, Saul, spare me the "that's you with the glasses and mustache" line. I pay every one and shoot 35mm. <_<

R,


I did think about you when I saw it, but I did remember you are a big 35mm fan, so you are redeemed, sort of . . . :P

Just messing with ya.

Which works out just fine if the gross is zero.... Mel Brooks -- "The Producers" ;-)

The dialog in, "Cinematographer vs. Producer" was just played out, in real time on the set of the last music video I worked on. The only difference was that it was Cinamatogher vs. Gaffer. The DP had already been brainwashed and gone over to the "Dark Side".

I am very sad, often, that a lot of "DoPs" these days only know of digital :/

Then they aren't "DoP's", they are yet another "Timmy" who's mom bought them a RED or 5D.

The video you posted was very close to a conversation I had on a certain SLR feature that I luckily got away from. I guess that need for rent money can blind you for a moment.

Sad to say, of course, sometimes the need for rent wins out.
I'm fine calling someone a DoP even if they shoot exclusively digitally, so long as they know wtf they are doing!
Hell, despite my own investments in 16 and 35 kit, i still wind up shooting the largest proportion of my projects on the XDCam.. and eventually when I do go DSLR, I'm sure it'll take over the vasy bulk of short narrative work. So goes life; a long string of disappointments.
