I hope you like it. If you don't, it's not from a lack of trying.
Not really sure if I would call Snowtown and Macbeth "stylized indie action flicks" ...
"5 Ways to Make a High-Quality Music Video for Under $1,000? Sounds like it'll have some great tips for working with really limited resources and lower-end gear for emerging filmmakers!"

The essay basically loses me once he mentions that he's excited to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 moving to the Red Helium as it'll (apparently) solve all of their grading issues ... even though he mentions earlier on that it's not the camera. He does raise some good points, though. I've rarely walked out of a Marvel film singing praises towards its cinematography and overall visual aesthetic. Batman v Superman, however, whichever way you feel about it, is a gorgeous film to look at.
One last note about this article about the reference made to the "Man of Steel in Color" video; as a fan of that movie, I immediately picked up that they desaturated the "original" footage. They actually altered the original footage to look dull and then tried to pass off their insanely ludicrous grade as the far superior option. No wonder they took it down.
I know that the BMPCC has greater DR and colour space, and I would love to own one as well, but I love using my GH4. It's the first camera I've ever invested in and with careful consideration to composition, lighting (namely in protecting your highlights) and a nice grade (provided you use a good picture profile) you can pull some very nice results. I decided to go for the GH4 because of the huge amount of features a camera of this size and price packs in. The small sensor isn't an issue as I use a speedbooster and coupled with a good lens I still feel surprised at what I can do with it.
A friend of mine who also has a GH4 began loving the camera but has lately often said things like "I need to upgrade" but I don't feel he's actually put the attention on the work itself, he's relying too much on what gear he has to provide nice images. I do feel we put too much attention on the camera doing the work for us as opposed to simply acquiring good tools to help us create. At the end of the day, it's how you use it. People say the GH4 looks too "video". Below is a screenshot from some footage I shot recently. I'm not a DP or a professional colourist, but I feel pretty happy with the image I was able to achieve from a camera a lot of people tend to write off.
What I've learned from David Fincher's commentaries has been absolutely invaluable to my overall film education. His commentary tracks are wells of information, especially alongside the Behind The Scenes features that usually accompany his releases.
