I have a Sony Z1(E) but it's not something you have by your side all the time to shoot any unexpected/ interesting opportunities on the hoof. I've been looking for a camcorder that suits my budget to support my Z1 so I can take it on trips/ have in the car, etc.
So sorry, if this is already posted somewhere or is under the wrong heading...
Okay so I'm an actor and photographer, but I am directing a music video for the first time. It's a group of 4 girls, one of which is a close friend of mine (kind of a pop feeling song). I don't doubt myabilitiesto execute it well, but some "experience" questions have come up in my mind and the answers are only in experience which I don't have so here I am...
The teaser trailer to Pyromaniac Studios' upcoming feature length fanfilm based
off of one of the most popular webcomics of all time. Currently the movie
is more than half finished, and will be released Winter 2011. More
details to follow.
I recently wrote an article for VM Mag about a 'Mad Genius' DIY 3D camera rigger. I've just found another who is currently putting together a 3D Beam Splitter for around $100. Used primarily for close-ups during 3D shoots, a beam splitter uses a special piece of glass called '50/50' that acts as a prism and splits the light coming off your subject to be recorded by two cameras at a 90 degree angle. These rigs made professionally, cost a year or more worth of college tuition. To find one at $100 is very intriguing!
I"ve recently graduated with a film degree from the University of North Texas. Unlike many of my fellow students, I wasn't blessed with the financial ability to buy a camera (or have one purchased for me) upon graduation. SO, I find myself as a director without anything to direct with! I'm looking for a camera (DSLR or otherwise) that would be affordable on a shoestring budget like mine. I can swing from $1000.00 to $1500.00, approximately. A starting kit (body, zoom lens, etc) is all I really need for now. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Nikon got an early start by announcing their exciting new HDSLR, the D5100. The camera, which costs only $899.95 with an 18-55mm VR lens, can shoot in full 1080p HD at 30 and 24 frames per second, in 720p at 30 and 24 fps (sadly, no 60fps option), and in 640x424 at 24 fps.
Ran across this vid from Robino Films showing how to use a long exposure photo as a matte to compensate for a dark scene when shooting with a DSLR Camera. By combining AFX and Photoshop you can make an undetectable foreground or background matte to add detail or scene details without a lot of difficulty. Check it out!
