...and small time rental house in Copenhagen.
Makes good sense...... someone totally unrelated to the film industry, once taught me that wisdom is teached from the bottom up.
If there's one thing you can't learn from old timers, it's about how you achieve today what they achieved "back then".
It's almost as stupid as the whole "oh we gotta save film" debate that Scorsese was part of as well...
Old timers always try to maintain some kind of status quo because they like what is, rather than accept what is coming. Of course their way of doing movies will fade away... it's called progression and that's the way it should be.
In 20 years, the young generation of that time will look back at today and try to argue that we all have to keep LED lights in the streets. And they wont even mention sodium...
So yeah.... movement, motivation, techniques and so on, those things are almost inherant to human nature, because in most cases they will try to act as how you'd react in the given situation. If you go out and make movies and are succesfull in using those techniques the right way that compliments the film, then people will begin to notice you as a cinematographer.
Unless ofcourse you just happen to know the right people...... that little detail can never be underestimated. Nepotism is a bitch, and unfortunately works very well.
Skyfall was shot mainly with one camera..... Lucy was shot mainly with one camera, some of the action sequences was even shot single cam.
If you are a lighting wiz I would stick to having more rigging options. With a two camera setup you need to plan more and maybe place the lights higher to allow for cams to frame and you might end up with compromising the light.
And he's damn good at it. His scenes always have that eerie surrealism to them and the style is just perfect.
I love when build sets can accomplish this kind of feel.
Also..... you can just run Fusion in Mac OSX and then install what ever version of Windows you want and run it when needed. I have windows 7 running windowed on this MBP, and that's enough for me.
All my professional life I worked with macs....
All my personal life I've had pcs....
What I noticed back 3-4 years ago was that my pc, which was a meager build, seemed to perform better at rendering than a similar mac did. I was simply slightly faster in both Premiere and AE.
But what the pc lacks is stability. I'm not content with "months without a crash" I want god damn no crashes at all. And that I have gotten with ANY of the macs I've worked on. Not a single crash.
So for me it has been boiled down to what is most stabil rather than efficient, because I'm almost certain that price pr. power is better in the pc world (also because of the choice of cards in apple computers... I mean why oh why?!?!).
But I would rather have a computer which I can rely on completely than facing a monthly blue screen of death or some idiotic oversize maintenance patch/ update.
But hey.... managing your browsing habits also keeps you computer clean and running nicely. My pcs in my teen years and early 20s would get slow and have more and more pop ups over time ;)
I'm pretty sure this will not only make me make better films, but also attract more clients who pays more along with making my personal life less complicated as my wife and my kids will connect with me better while I sit in my den too close to the screen editing video remixes of Alan Watts sound bits ;P
