Thank you for the reply.


Thank you for the reply. I’ve found several ND filters for my size camera so that will work out nicely.

I’ve done a short film in the past (with a much older camera in much worse lighting conditions) so what you’ve said makes a great deal of sense. Lighting is definitely something I need some practice with and it’s one of my main focus points in this trailer. I have several of the halogen work lamps on stands and one that’s attached to an extra tripod via c-clamp. I’m sure there are ways to diffuse those a bit; I’ll research that.

Fortunately, I’ve got a shotgun mic and a boom so the audio won’t be an issue.

Again, thanks – very concise and informative and – best of all – very usable information.
