Great content...lousy package!!!
Cut the cutesy bullshit, speak English at a rate other than a used car salesman and you may gain more viewers. Todd...I enjoyed your tips. Very informative. Don't know how you keep from punching Ryan in the face!
Please, get your terms right.
Take it from an old school film pro, it's called a clapstick or clapper.
I guess also you've never heard of the Arriflex BL film camera (BL being short for blimped, a quieting device to keep the operational sound of the film traveling through the camera to a whisper). This was the industry standard for shooting a sound movie...an Arri BL linked by cable to a Nagra magnetic audio recorder...affectionately know as the double system. Noisey....never...quiet...always!
After decades of shooting on film, I've embraced digital not only for its cost savings but done properly, digital technology can now emulate the film look so it is now indistinguishable from actual film.
Bottom line...audiences don't care one way or the other anymore, they're just interested in the story and being entertained.
Keep that in mind for your next shoot.
Your statement, "...they are a business first and foremost" is not correct in my way of thinking. It's called "SHOW BUSINESS" with the word 'show' leading the charge. Without the 'show' there would be no 'business'.
Great little documentary...even better if you speak French!
Used to use the little beast back in the late sixties teaching sixth graders the basics of filmmaking.
Fond memories of shooting color reversal ...way back when.
Frankly...I think the the guy is full of it.
He just likes saying the word...makes him feel like a big deal.
Talent is based on the old nature vs. nurture conundrum...either you have it from the get go or someone helped you develop it.
Go back to your cube wanker.
