Yeah, the ‘Telly’ bit was


Yeah, the ‘Telly’ bit was over the top. I like many working pros have been invited to submit work to the contest. I just couldn’t get past the idea of having to ‘pay $150 for the trophy’ if I won.

Grinner, please elaborate on your remarks. It’s obvious that you disapprove of the video I would like more info as to why.

Other than that, I thought for the amount spent and the availability of the components the info will be very helpful to intermediate to pro videographers looking to getting similar work done without the pro cost.

Sarge, you’re right. Greenscreen is a more likely way to do it if you have the means available. The beauty of this setup is it works just as well for other colored backgrounds including green if the shooter doesn’t have a portable setup.

Birdcat, yeah he’s not a bad source of info though I am ‘irked’ with him as he ‘punked’ out with his version of ‘Mac vs PC’ video. On the one hand, he had finally said the words that needed to be said but to paraphrase Grinner, his lame attempt at humor killed the overall message.

The most valuable item I got from the video was the construction of the pvc light stand. I went out and priced the parts and can build one with variable sizes for less than $60. I’ve also used those aluminum clamp lights as fills for greenscreen work. Eric mentioned doing your homework when buying compact flourescent bulbs (CFB’s) and he’s dead on. I use them exclusively in kit lights and they are great because they through out less heat than standard tungsten bulbs. However, though they come in standard and daylight intensities be advised that standard CFB’s are about 1000K (Kelvin) less than a traditional 3200K bulb. Daylight CFB’s average 1000K+ more than a traditional 5000K bulb and instead of having a ‘reddish’ tint they have a harsh blue tint. Believe it or not, both types of bulbs work well long as you understand the limitations and expose for them properly.
