Once I had a sensor dust and gave it to the Canon Service Center. When it was being delivered I could still see a tiny spot at the corner. I showed it to the front desk lady and she in turn took the camera to the engineer inside. The engineer came out (pretty annoyed) and told me that he can't see any spot. He showed me a few shots he took against a white sheet to confirm.The shots were taken at around f8. So I told him that the spots are visible at a lower aperture. He was furious now, and told me to lower the aperture, take a shot and show him. As I was turning down the aperture and reached around f16, he gave a wicked smile and said "Hello sir... are you sure you are lowering the aperture?"
1) NFS, It would be very kind of you it you write 'Beginners/Intermediate /Advanced tips' or something of that sort in the headings to indicate the level of difficulty. Pardon me, but it is sometimes, frustrating to spend 7 minutes and then find out it is a kindergarten video.
2) Make an advanced Premiere video on how to re-edit a huge cluttered timeline with lots of audio and video layers. Say like if someone has to reedit a 45 minutes edited film into a 30 min film or something. I personally struggle a lot there and have found no helpful tutorials on how to deal with it.
Well who am I to say anything about the great Godard, But still with all due respect I would say, personally I would have preferred a conventional approach over the narrative one taken in the film. The story is just fabulous.
Please give a warning before posting videos where people say more than 50 words per second.
Oh God I am so guilty of this. Every time I review my so called final edit sequence I end up finding some things to change. I had a project file named myfilm-finalcut-locked23!!
I think most of these films are like comparing apples against oranges. Films like Titanic, Lord of he Rings, Life of Pi, Gravity are so heavily VFX dependent, it is really hard to measure creativity behind the camera veiled under their dazzling animations. I think there should be a different award category for cinematography of such films all together. The normal cinematography award should go to more naturalistic films with minimum green screen.
