MBA background and worked in LA but now resides in Cleveland, Wu is an multiple awards winning filmmaker enjoying making noise.
way too many companies at NAB right now trying to sell their gimbals, DJI has a strong competition... we will see, most importantly, i hope DJI does fix their customer service first and foremost.
hmm, my post disappeared...
We did a crowdfunding back in 2014 to finish up a fan film webseries, we didn't ask for a lot cause we got most donated already, however it was very scary, especially trying to promote a fan film.
We did a very basic video to show what we have in our resources and then push it out via social media once a week. We had a lot of strangers helped, but mostly were people we know.
One of the thing when we do social media push, is to say "for just a dinner out, you get to support this fan film" mentality, but still it's quite interesting to find out some people prefer to spend $ for 2 packs of cigarettes than to help. lol
At the end, we over reached our goal and here's the link if you are interested: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/t-r-a-c-e-a-doctor-who-fan-film-webis...
Now we are pushing out another film, this time an action one, and we learned from our mistake and made this a slight different: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1185118621/project-e1337-feature-film
I've compiled a page with most of their gimbal info for anyone who thinks may be useful as well. http://www.mdifilm.com/2013/?p=1291
So, is this sponsored by DJI as well? it seems like a 'paid' advertisement too...
I read at many forums of their product isn't as good quality as it should. The slider was posted as a $199 before that I was going to order. Also. Their website is horrible that I have never been able to log in or place an order with poor customer service. (Do a search on many of their products online and you will get the same sentiments from others)
We own a large 3000sq ft permanent green screen studio in Ohio and we have done a lot of keying, one of the process is to light the background evenly then the subject/foreground. In post using key light to key out the green and then apply a video denoise, then add background in and color correct both. From using old camcorders to dslr to red cameras, keying was never an issue, it's just a matter of time. Sometimes you may need to do a bit of masking if you failed to key right.
Our recent project is a Doctor Who Fan Film that has a bunch of scenes shot in the green screen and using the gh4 shooting in 4k downscale in 1080. We did all the keying in4k and it was easy and clean.
