Until Sunday morning (or Saturday night, really) B&H Photo is doubling their instant rebates on the Canon 60D/7D/5D Mark II (instant rebates happen right in the shopping cart, as opposed to the annoying kind where you fill out a form and cross your fingers for a check in 6-8 weeks). If you’re interested in any of these HDSLRs, check out the discounts.

21 Grams. Far from Heaven. In the Bedroom. One Hour Photo. Boys Don’t Cry. American Splendor. I’m Not There. Happiness. Adventureland. The Ice Storm. These are just a few of the independent films produced by superproducers Ted Hope and Christine Vachon, and the two of them are banding together to share what they’ve learned with other producers and aspiring producers on Saturday, November 5, 2011 here in NYC. The masterclass focuses on the important stuff: “get your movie made, make it well, make it great, get it seen, and survive to do it all over again.” They’ve also created a discount code for NoFilmSchool readers: “NoFilmSchooler125″ will save you $25. For would-be indie producers, this is a must-attend workshop, and you couldn’t pick a better pair of producers to learn from. Here are the full details: More »

Regular readers know I’m a fan of Red Giant Software’s post-production plugins, as they offer a lot of value for the money (and that’s when they’re at full price). Because their tools are such a good match for DIY and indie filmmakers, this week I’ve got a special deal from the Red Giant folks: the color grading plugin Magic Bullet Quick Looks, normally $99, for only $25. 75% off. No catch. Quick Looks is a great way to get really dramatic results with just a click of the mouse. I can show you better than I can tell you: More »

It was a big deal when Premiere Pro CS5 introduced native HDSLR editing, because it removed the need to transcode h.264 video to a more editable format like ProRes. However, just because you can does not mean you should. After editing a couple of projects in Premiere without transcoding, I’ve since started using Magic Bullet Grinder to convert to ProRes anyway, because shuttling and scrubbing in the timeline is much more responsive on transcoded footage. I’ve found that Red Giant Software’s multi-core, dead-simple processing tool ends up saving a lot of time in the editing session. So whether you’re editing in FCP and need to transcode, or just want to speed up your editing, here’s a 30% off coupon for Grinder — a NoFilmSchool exclusive! More »

B&H has launched Double Instant Rebates for key Canon HDSLRs, offering an instant discount of up to $400 when you purchase a Canon 5D Mark II, 7D, 1D Mark IV, or 60D along with a Canon lens (or flash unit). If you’re in the market for a lens as well as a DSLR, this effectively doubles their earlier instant rebate promotion. Here are the details: More »
