It’s no slam dunk. It’s not the Avengers.
Give it up about the comic books, seriously.
This movie is so head and shoulders above that kind of crap and it’s not even one of Scorsese’s best. It was a return to form though. The same can be said about Deniro and Pacino too.
This is a parody, right? Early April Fool’s joke?
That’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen. Fighting the good fight. The producers or upm or studio or AD or whoever are just thinking of making it fit in as the most efficient way you can in terms of the budget and schedule...without one thought to the exploration, discovery, and the artistic process, and even though some people might see it as negative, sometimes I think the only way some people are going to listen is to raise your voice and change the tone. It sucks to do that, and no one wants to be the bad guy, but I don’t think Lynch wants to shoot the equivalent of an episode of Gilligan’s Island or something. The people on the money side, might’ve been totally screwed, maybe there just weren’t any funds there, I dunno/who knows, but in any case, everything DL was expressing it totally understandable.
This is the perfect tool...just take it off the handlebars and put the mimic on a geared head or fluid head. The big problem with using the handlebar by holding it in the air is that any kind of muscle twitch or lapse in concentration translates to errant camera
motion. Or picture using it on a process trailer where the R2 is on the picture car and you are sitting in the back of the tow vehicle...if you are using a mimic or Force Pro mounted to wheels, tripod, or joystick, the camera will be still...but if you use handlebars every time you hit a bump in the road, every time your centrifical force changes around the turns, the camera will be listing all over the place.
So...can’t red just give you 2 HD-SDI’s without yet another module to do it? Also, is there no A/B version?
I don't understand how you can't understand what I'm saying. When a camera is end of lifed, the resale takes a hit. American cars used to have 3-4 year product cycles, whereas Mercedes goes on a 7 year cycle. One big exception to American vehicles is the jeep, which has been on a 10 yr product cycle for the past 30 years at least. I sold my 2001 Jeep after 7 or 8 years for a depreciation of $311 a year! Planned obsolescence makes things cost more and depreciate more. Mercedes and Jeep (and Volvo) have unusually high resale values b/c they are around longer.
When something is end of lifed, it's less popular for the resale, causing you to jump so you aren't caught in a depreciation spiral. When the trade in value is crippled, when the produce is changed for negligible benefit, it's just for more income flow to RED. RED owners are caught in a trap of, oh, you gotta get the next thing...and this is no more apparent then the constant posts by RED of "get out your deposit money...you're gonna be blown away by what's next". (They do it constantly---it's super annoying and car salesman-y.) I don't want to do that every few months. It's ridiculous and totally pointless.
Don't get on me about how capable my old Scarlet-W is. Yes, it's great. I love the Scarlet-W as far as it's size and weight and how capable it is for relatively little compared to the more expensive models. I had a RED 1 MX for years, and it was great having something that stayed valid for a long time...but if I played the trade in game all the time, it would've made far less money. Financially, buying a new camera and doing it all over again so quickly, is just unnecessary. I feel like a sucker, I feel like a junkie getting manipulated by my pusher. I just don't want to play that game.
