Topics I've Started

Motorized Jib

07 December 2017 - 04:33 PM

Ive been using a Digislider for years, its a motorized slider. I have a fast motor for video, and a slow motor for motion time lapse. Its a great product.

Digislider are an English company, they also sell a mortorized jib. It looks brilliant, however only holds loads up to 5kg, which wont work for me. The price is around $1000. Affordable enough.

Anyone know any similar products, which they can recommend?

Thanks,

David.

Gels or Daylight Balanced Lights

25 November 2017 - 04:51 PM

Hi all, Ive a living room scene to shoot, Red Epic.

As it stands, I have available Arri Tungsten lights - 3 x 800w and 2 x 1200

I use these in a fashion studio daily and I know how to utilize them and control them when shooting people quite well.

Im now concerned because Im mixing these with daylight from a window in the upcoming shoot.

The question I am asking myself is, should I use CTB gels with my Arris, or just hire day light balanced lighting. I guess Id like to use the Arris tungstens, since I know them.

Therefore, then my concern is the efficiency or inefficiency of using gels with them, I have no experience with this. I wonder how much compromise will be introduced to the output and the general disadvantages.

If anyone wants to respond in a positive way, please do, if you have an opinion or idea which option you might choose, in my shoes.

Cheers, David.

Kodak Super 8 camera

28 October 2017 - 05:43 AM

Hello, I'm looking for info on the release of the Kodak Super 8 camera, which was introduced last year and supposed to be released in 2017. The release of this thing has become very ambiguous. I hear from time to time (in online comments, which aren't always to be taken too seriously), that the Super 8 Camera has been scrapped.

 

Any info will be appreciated.

 

Many thanks!

Lighting a piano player in a studio

14 October 2017 - 04:19 AM

Hi all, I'm shooting a piano songwriter guy in one of the attached beautiful studio spaces next month.


Gear available:

C300 and a some lenses
Dolly
3 x 800w Arri Tungsten lamps
Trace Paper diffusion (yes)


We've been carrying out tests for the past few days and have a lighting set up that works for a number of angles, really nicely.

But, If anyone is interested, I'd love to hear how you'd initially consider approaching this situation, with the gear, available light and space.

I will post the performance video upon completion, end of November.

Any positive contribution to the thread will be greatly appreciated.

Dave
