Thank you! Great point about the interviews - hadn't considered that. I'll be sure to figure out what my client is comfortable with and charge a reasonable amount.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful response! You advice is very helpful.
I've done quite a few personal independent projects, so I have the majority of the equipment needed. I'll definitely be going light so I'm not overwhelmed by the technical side of things and can keep my vision and the client's vision in mind. That being said, I'll likely shoot with a BMPCC and potentially rent some higher end lenses and audio equipment if I can squeeze it in the budget.
I've never used Nuke or any other apps from The Foundry. How do they compare to Blackmagic (Fusion & Resolve), Autodesk (Maya, 3DS Max, etc.) and Adobe (Creative Cloud)? All of these companies claim to have the greatest collection or combined program for a post pipeline. What are your opinions on the best / differences, & advantages / disadvantages?
