    We can punch that up in post. I generally tell people to watch the key-to-fill ratio and fill a little more, knowing we can crush it down more in post if we need it. Of course, tests will give you...
  2. Tell the client when you shoot on film on set,...

    Tell the client when you shoot on film on set, you also don't get to see the grain there -- you have to wait for the film to be processed.

    My advice is to just do some tests and give them a...

    I asked about Solitaire when I was at ILM in 2004, and they kind of shrugged and said they had one in storage but they didn't use it anymore. I think the Arri laser recorders pretty much killed it...

    Arri lets you create framing charts for free, and they have focus targets in them:

    I think it's a very bad idea to try to judge HDR on cheap displays. This (unfortunately) is a "you get what you pay for" issue.

    I think HDR on YouTube is dodgy as it is. It's no problem on...

    I don't think this is a legit test if they didn't use a 3rd-party probe and calibration software like Light Illusion or Calman. That will really tell you what the display can do with Rec709 and HDR....

    I have yet to be on a film set that doesn't have anxiety.

    When we're in final color sessions, my usual question on a scene is not "what color do you want" or "how bright should this be?" I ask,...

    The Schneider Black Magic filter is yet another look:

    Amazon, Netflix, Apple TV, and CBS All-Access each have different audio levels. Who's responsible? Nobody. Industry standards exist, but nobody obeys them. There are also wide variations in dynamic...

    Well, you're stating all those things as facts. The reality is that it's just an opinion.

    We're fine with sticking with Macs for 99% of our work, and it's not a problem for us. I always say: if...

    That's a beautiful show. We just watched Episode #4 last night -- the one set in Mexico City -- and they did some pretty amazing crane shots in the hotel lobby, which I suspect could have been...

    Anybody remember when actor Paul Walker died in the middle of shooting Fast & Furious 7? It cost the production about $35 million dollars (that's $35 with six zeros after it) to do all the CGI...

    I think complaining about it on a Red Camera user group is not very effective. Have you posted this to the BMD Camera Forum?

    Quite a bit of the film will be live action with real sets, and some will be live-action with CGI set. CGI people are not quite there yet. No doubt the alien creatures will be CGI. I think like the...

    This website has some of that information:

    I think it's fair to say that it's more about who shot the movie (that is, what cinematographer did the work) than what camera...

    Jesus, what a horrible story. You kind of wish that Red had a secret code they could just blast out through Wi-Fi or something and brick the camera.

    Producer Ryan Murphy's previous production, Hollywood, was shot on Sony Venice by cinematographer Simon Dennis. The colorist was Tanner Buschman over at MTI Film/Hollywood.

    I just finished a 3-week supervised feature session with the director in the room last month, and it was fine. The COVID masks were annoying, but it was his preference was to be there and personally...

    We're not seeing that problem in the LG OLED's. We do see problems in near-black and fade-to-black situations where the image gets very blocky and quantized (and that's a 10-bit image in 10-bit...

    I think if Jim Jannard was willing to cooperate with it, somebody could do a very good 2-hour documentary on the Red Camera company.

    If you have to ask... you can't afford them. :eek6:

    The fact that they're all T2.8 is pretty amazing.

    I think you'd be wise to record sound only on a separate audio recorder, and only use the sound in the camera as a backup. That's very, very standard practice on scripted projects. I get that on...

    I don't think it's an all or nothing, and I don't think making hasty generalizations helps your argument.

    The process doesn't work with the way I do sessions, but I think their matching tool is...

    We generally tell clients to shoot an actual physical printed framing chart on set, and then keep that around as a reference during editing and final color so that we know it's being framed...
