For all of the twentieth century, there was no such thing as "full frame" in a mainstream cinema camera...VistaVision being a possible exception. There was Imax and 65mm (not70) for some roadshow spectaculars, but Mitchell, Bell&Howell, Panavision, Arriflex, Éclair, and Movicam were all 35mm film running vertically thru the gate, not horizontally as in a film still camera. Pretty much the approximate frame size as APS-C. Of course all of those manufacturers also made 16mm cameras.
I was a First Assistant (focus puller) for the first 25 years of my IA career, and follow focus was done, in those days, with a tape measure and the engraving on the lens...try that with your "cinematic" (buzz word to end all buzz words) full-frame (lack of) depth of field. Yet, the movies actually were cinematic, by definition.
These people are idiots.
Way to go, NFS, keep dumbing down the craft of Cinematography.
I've had a really poor pre-sale customer service experience with Dauntless Sotware regarding the potential purchase of Drone Pilot (UAS) Test Prep. I found their customer service attitude to be unacceptable. My plan is to purchase "Remote Pilot FAA Test Prep-UAS Rating" from Aeroapps Technology ($19.99), based on the AppStore reviews.
First joined Association of Film Craftsmen-NABET local 15, NYC back (way back) in the day as a 1AC. Only requirement was to pass a written test and a practical test at the rental house. Seven years later, I finally got a sponsor (required in those days) and applied to Cinematographer's Guild IATSE LOCAL 644, NYC, also as a 1AC. Had to once again take a written,then a practical test. By the late 80's, early 90's, AFC-NABET (which I was no longer a member of) was absorbed into the IA. Also in the late 90's, early 00's, the three IA camera locals 644,659, and 666 were merged into IATSE Local 600-ICG. I upgraded my card from 1AC to Operator in the early 00's and was accepted into SOC. Now I shoot for whoever calls first.
So, just to inject a bit of reality, here is the current IATSE local 600 International Cinematographers Guild union scale rate card:
Features & half-hour film episodic/-hour episodic
DP studio 824.96/801.36 location 1057.60/1026.74
Operator 510.32/495.44 653.85/634.78
1AC/Tech 372.80/431.76 477.65/553.19
2AC 343.84/333.84 440.55/427.73
All rates are minimum call 8 hour day studio; 9.5 hour day distant location.
Nothing prevents a member from negotiating HIGHER rates ADDITIONAL kit rental.
