I would of had a flag/silk kit up there somewhere. You can get them pretty cheap if you want to buy them and they really help to create good looking images.
What type of computer hardware did you use to edit the film?
If you had a Rocket X card, would that of helped you in post?
I noticed a few things on the article that didn't seem right or needed to be expanded.
First off, light leaks are caused by light hitting the film plane and not the "sensor" it's not digital.
Lastly, film shakes can also be caused by the camera being used not having a registration pin to hold the frame down for exposure. I used a Bolex 16mm camera that didn't have a registration pin in school, and when we got the film back from processing we would see the image kind of float around on the screen. It wasn't bad, it can add some aesthetic to the film if that was your intent.
Anyways, I like seeing articles that talk about filmmaking aesthetic and people working towards figuring out ways to create interesting things and then sharing.
This is one thing that can really mess up a filmmaker. In film school we devoted a good section of time talking about music and securing rights.
Twice I've had to deal with a music artist actually taking a song you can get out one of those services and then rename the track to sell to a small record label. Then you find this out when YouTube gives you a copyright conflict and monetizes your video so that other company makes money off of your stuff. Such a hassle!
Make sure that the person who you're working for knows what they're doing so you don't pick up bad habits and get yourself in trouble on your films.
I knew a guy who would use copyrighted music without permission for some of their films, and then bully people to try and get their way. Be careful who you shadow.
Doing things as an independent can be scary. Try not to get discouraged and if things don't work out, analyze what happened and find a solution, then press on and don't give up if you love what you do. :)
You're right! This is an extremely bad idea on part of the FAA to publicly release this information.
People should sue to keep their information private. It's almost like they're making flying drones into something like the Meghan's law.
