A film director from India who Planning his third film now.
Damn, I needed this article very much in my life.
A great resource for anamorphic lens and how to know more about them. I saved Toto's blog and channel to know more about it.
I am planning to shoot my next film and I think this kind of knowledge will definitely affect my filmmaking and movie.
Understanding Anamporphic is something I have always found very difficult because in India there is not much access to Anamorphic lenses to filmmakers and whatever few there are, they are far too expensive for anyone to use them.
No producers allow too much experimentation there.
I think I am addicted to anamorphic lenses like other camera enthusiasts because it reminds us of the leagcy of cinema which is getting obsolete day by day.
Sony first changed the market with Walkman but the iPod exploded the market and walkman a history.
Then Sony introduced pocket cameras and they were a rage, but then a company that didn't excel in cameras took away its business by introducing cameras in Mobile, Yes, I am talking about Nokia.
But now, this time, sony is really revolutionizing the film industry with their high-quality low budget mirrorless cameras with functions that no other camera can match in the market.
They are killing all the competitions with every launch of Alpha series.
Even in India, everyone is using these cameras every day to shoot ads films, short films, corporate films and youtube videos.
The cameras are for filmmakers on every level.
The new features will make it more sought after camera in the market.
Great article. Though it is not a motivating article but still I got motivated reading the article.
I think the title was misleading as the article was nothing about disappointment.
Anyways, I am a big fan of James Cameron and I have seen all his films multiple times.
Abyss was the last film of his that I watched. It didn't look interesting to me.
Since I had vowed to finish watching all his films, so I started watching it.
I remember there were times when I found it super boring but there were also times when I was just blown away by the canvas of the film.
It is still very difficult to create what Cameron created back in the 80s and 90s.
My respect for film increased many folds when I watched the making of the film which is freely available on the youtube.
The amount of effort, hard work and determination that was required to make this film was just unbelievable.
If I am not wrong, The alien CGI shot was one of the first complete CGI shots of the Hollywood. While shooting they didn't even know what it was going to look like.
To me, it will always be a great film. Maybe it's importance will wane away with time and the advent of CGI technology but it will always be a good film and never a disappointment.
I won't believe even if James Cameron himself comes and says that to me.

It certainly gives goosebumps watching masters at work.
I am a filmmaker myself and when I went to the Film industry, I was shocked to see everything in the film industry being replaced with iMacs and PCs.
No one uses real composers anymore rather create music on the Logic pro.
The excitement to sit and listen to creative people play instruments are long gone.
I love how the team of Sherlock also created music for their show using a live orchestra.
The richness of Live play and the intelligence of a composer to understand the mood of the scene and compose music accordingly can never be replaced by technology.
EyesOnCinema is doing great work.
I have been a fan of film convert for ages.
They always create world-class content and I love how they have been researching to create film look for young filmmakers so that they can also create movies which can be showcased outside.
I am planning to make a movie this year and Hopefully, I will be able to make it and I am going to use this technology for sure.
