Born in 1982 in Strasbourg, France.
Interesting! So I guess I have the summer to decide between this one and a Canon 7d mark ii (for a 2-3 years-long travel around the world).
For those who didn't like the video above, try this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLUtANbzCFE&feature=youtu.be.
I like it!
Mmmm... Some weird stuffs here. They had "absolutely no connections. After enough odd editing jobs, they had raised enough money to shoot a feature for $65k". So they had amazing connections! I work in the film business for years in big companies and I would need more than 20 years to save that amount of money.
"Get lights from the local hardware store, cameras from the local electronics store and return them after production if you have to.", yeah that's weird, maybe possible in the US, but in most places in the world you have to buy or rent gear. And it will cost more than 1000$.
Make a 1000$ film with a famous TV guy? Yeah, not possible neither except in the US I guess.
The rest is interesting, but, yeah, very american. I'm glad it works! Too bad I can't live there.
Watching it right now. It's really for beginners and he (so far) concentrates a lot on just colorgrading but it's pretty good. It's very used at Technicolor where I work so I'm learning it to stay on top...
"And for the most part, he's right, though it's interesting to hear it coming from someone who has benefitted so immensely from that same system."
LOL. He's the father of independant film. Only one film he directed was produced by a studio (the first Star Wars), the others were just distributed by a studio. He ALWAYS was against the studio system and Hollywood...
Free? Celtx. But they are not really changing their desktop version and if it's ok for a short film, it's NOT for a feature film.
I used Movie Draft, but, no update for a couple of years (too bad, it's brilliant, just needed some changes) so now I work with Scrivener et Fade in Pro. Not free but very useful. and Fade In Pro has now a big community, there are many updates every year. It lacks a few things though but i'm sure it will be perfect soon.
70mm is impressive of course but it doesn't make a film better. Actually I would suggest to watch Interstellar in a classic DCP theatre. The amazement coming from a 70mm screening can easily hide the flaws of the film. And this one has many, even if it's still a very entertaining SF film.
