What about The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
"This new update gives the 4K Pocket legs to keep up with Raw development for a little while longer and assures 4K users who haven't upgraded to the full-frame 6K model, that Blackmagic isn't leaving them behind."
- Can you PLEASE check your articles before publishing them? The P6K is not a full-frame camera, it's a Super 35mm Camera.
It matters because awards like these are supposed to be the way that we recognize talent, and great storytelling. There are other places in the world where society cultivates art, it’s meaning, merit and relevance. America does not. Our government does not see value in the arts. So it’s left to film festivals and the academy to lift filmmakers up to higher standards to show how meaningful storytelling in cinema is. It’s important. It matters. Unfortunately the academy has allowed political correctiveness and TV ratings to become more important than the meaning of the work, of the stories that have been sweat and bled over in order to be told and made by their creators. Cinematography and editing are THE CORE of cinema, of this/our art form and means of human expression. It’s outrageous that they cannot see the value in televising the awards in full, it’s outrageous that they believe song and dance numbers are more important than letting a director have enough time to give his acceptance speech. It’s the entire reason we’re watching. To understand why they made the film, why millions of dollars and hundreds of people worked their asses off to tell a story. It’s outright dispicable that this is what the academy has become. The rest of the film world is laughing at us.
Well gee - thanks for the news! The news we all found out immediately from our main news sources and social media. NFS, you’re missing the point here. Do you have an opinion?? Does NFS actually have something interesting to say or offer about this that hasn’t been said already? We don’t need another click bait headline without any content, that’s a pretty hollow way to maintain a passionate and dedicated community. Where are the voices from the creators in this article? The directors and DPs who are speaking up right now about how weird and wrong this is? Speak up! Not everyone has as big an audience as you and it might help if you could just grow a pair, and be honest about something for once. Defend yourself. Have an opinion. Take a stand. You’ve been missing the mark on a lot of things, and it makes me feel like you’re out of touch with you’re own community.
nice.. something to keep in mind though is when shooting in BW, color can actually become incredibly important, using primary colors and black and white color filters can be a key way to control contrast, choosing a red car or a blue car combined with filters can make it either totally stand out or become hidden in the scene, just take note from DP Phedon Papamichael from his work on ‘Nebraska’, just because it’s monochrome, doesn’t mean color doesn’t matter.
