I'm an award-winning writer/director. I also do a bit of producing, editing, and shooting - I believe in being as versatile as possible in our increasingly-digital world. I'm based in the Midwest, I love playing complicated board games, I drink a lot of chocolate stout, and I eat a lot of pizza.
I'm a huge GH2 fan, and for a few additional specs, I'd happily pay more for the GH3. The ALL-I and codec selection are very attractive. That said, I feel like Panasonic should have made a bigger leap with the GH3 somehow... like the GH2 was so groundbreaking for the price. Is it wrong to have hoped for 2.5k or something?
Nice Jason. I'd give that a try.
So... what you're saying, is that I don't have horrible ideas?! Win!
Oh no, no need to explain. That's exactly what I was thinking this post needed... a fairy. : ) Yeah I imagine furniture sliders would work, but to me that almost negates the whole point? Because then that's a slide surface on top of another.
I would assume not. However, since you're shooting at the same exact time, does the 30 deg rule still apply since it's not technically a jump cut? I did a mind's-eye edit watching the video above, and a cut-in on those angles wouldn't really bother me too much.
Hey Brendan, great link and excellent point. I typically don't think film when backing up, but yes it does make a ton of sense for the final deliverable. However, it may not make as much sense to back up all your raw footage or alternate takes. Also, if you've ever got a tip or something, feel free to contact us with it - your idea here definitely has merit and value, for example.
