Agreed, framing this as "Apocalypse Now is Overrated" is really burying the lead in a bucket of click-bait. I'd be fine with that if the article really went for the "what should we be willing to do for art? and How far is too far?" angle. Unfortunately we don't really get deep into that.
Some of the most acclaimed films of the past century were brutal productions or made by meglomaniacs. Blade Runner was a walking disaster of a production, and Alfred Hitchcock was at times downright abusive to his stars. This extends to other art forms as well, so the question is indeed a deep and valid one.
Not as good as I expected. Though I do remember watching an old episode of Star Trek: TNG where they were trying to figure out who murdered someone and I was all like "How are there no surveillance cameras on board the Starfleet flagship?!"
For the H1 which only has one stereo input you'd need a Y-stereo splitter cable. You'll have to adjust levels for both at once, so hopefully both subjects are mic'd similarly and/or speak at about the same level.
This could be fun with other blending modes as well.
Don't underestimate actual darkness either. Apocalypse Now and The Godfather both spring to mind immediately as films with scenes/shots that are significantly under exposed and it totally works. I feel like filmmakers are too afraid of going dark these days.
Resolution on thermal cameras is usually quite low. I'd be curious to know the specs on this camera.
