Did anyone who happened to watch this see "Birdman"? A trick I learned from Robert Bresson was to put the camera as far back from the scene, drape it in black, keep the crew to a minimum then do a little light painting on the bg to sell it. I can't remember which movie of his it was (probably in the 60's) but he has a whole scene take place in the reflection of a silver tea pot. Also you might want to check out "Lady in the Lake" from 1946. I believe it is the only main stream motion picture where the camera is first person throughout the whole movie including a mirror shot. This was when most studio cameras were about the size of a portable out house. Just some thoughts.
I've used nothing but trackballs. There is a stack of worn out trackballs sitting in the corner. I started using trackballs in about 1995 and have passed this on to people whom I built edit suites for. I can edit 16 hours a day with little fatigue and have done so. My idea of using a mouse to edit is the equivalent of a demented maestro flapping his arms around leading a Spike Jones (no offense to the band leader) arrangement.
Did I just miss it or where are the results of which camera shot what?
