MBA background and worked in LA but now resides in Cleveland, Wu is an multiple awards winning filmmaker enjoying making noise.
Looks cool. Except the gif above. The one using the gimbal version intentional snaps his wrist. Nota true comparison.
One thing I learned also is to slow down when in production. Don't rush and put a lot of scenes into a day's shoot. This may add additional filming days but your content wouldn't suffer. Give some breathing room and consider setup times at each location.
For me I enjoy filmmaking process and always make films that would challenge us. Our next project is a martial arts comedy musical :) the learning process is a bit different.
How is this compared to the Tascam DR-10L ?
I have used several brand of it for the past year or so and always come back to the came-tv led 516 rod. Not only is has daylight and tungsten it is also dimable. Plus battery last 3 hours or it can be used plugged in to school power and can be attached to tripod. We use it a lot for gimbal follow or shoulder mount. Or just stationary. At $215 each it's been a good investment for filmmaking
In 2014 we started a crowdfunding for our fan film. It's hard to raise for a film especially a fan film project. We raised 143% of what we needed. It was a big learning curve. We did it by providing a realistic number. Later we crowdfund for another action scifi and also over raised. It wasn't an easy job but by being realistic it makes thing a bit better.
Back in 2011. Nofilmshool posted this article http://nofilmschool.com/2011/05/what-is-a-look-up-table-lut-anyway
The take away said this:
The key takeaway here is that LUTs are not used to creatively grade a final result, they’re used to make up a difference between a source and a result. In practical application -- with the CineStyle profile, for instance -- the LUT will let you view your footage during editing more naturally than the flat, desaturated image originally recorded. However, it’s best to remove it for final color grading and rely on your properly calibrated monitor to tell you what color it is and yourself to determine what color it should be. If not used carefully, improper LUT use could screw up your footage or limit your image manipulation options in post.
