I think the point of this is excellent. To use drones (or basically, the amazing gimbals that the camera's sit on) in far more many ways than just flying.
And as filmmakers, content creators, etc., this is not to say that a film should "only be made with this one camera"...but rather, use this as a tool in your arsenal....
If you need a rack focus, then use a camera and lens that can do that....
A great tip to "un-wrinkle" a green screen cloth? Spray it down with a water bottle....let it hang to dry...will be be wrinkle-free...
there is nothing confusing about the Shining scene. I know exactly where I am looking and where the actors are. These 'rules' are, more-or-less, for people still trying to make film-school-films.
Can we please look forward to something different?
It is an unfortunate by-product of the digital age. History is too easily rewritten, shaped, and spewed out in to the cyber-world to be ingested as fact.
Not even the 'most iconic' shots from some of these films.
At least try putting them in chronological order?
The Avengers (twice?)?? But yet, not a one from some of the most beautifully shot scenes like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzinPgsxokE (Deakins).
I cringe at the thought of what these so-called "official selections" will look like in 20 years. Yikes!
You need a license to operate a car, a motorcycle, a helicopter, a plane...no reason drones should be any different. Demonstrate you know the laws and have your papers in order. Be accountable.
I too thought the projection at The Dome was bad. The flickering, the shadows were really dark (some faces were completely lost), the image was not crisp, and there was a vignette around the entire screen. Overall, the show I watched (7pm 11/6) just made a so-so movie even worse.
