Well said. Another reason I'm very excited about the Wheel of Time series from Amazon. Robert Jordan was that guy, may he rest in peace. Obviously that's a book adaptation going to TV, but your point rings the same. You need someone who can dream big, but ground everything to the tiniest of details and hang with the nerds when it comes to mechanics and logic.
I'm definitely curious if this is the year the A7sIII finally gets announced. Either way this R5 does seem interesting, but I can't help but feel canon will price it way to high.
Exactly, like what else would they do? I think EF is great, there are so many high quality options out there now without ever touching canon products, who cares if Canon updated their lens mount...
I would definitely recommend adding Video Co-pilots, FX Console. It's free and really works great. Link here: https://www.videocopilot.net/blog/2018/05/fx-console-updated-to-v1-0-3/
I would also recommend adding to this list True Comp Duplicator. It's free (but donate if you can) and is sooooo handy for duplicating complicated comps with tons of precomps nested inside them. It even copies scripts and everything. Link Here: https://aescripts.com/true-comp-duplicator/
Okay so defend TLJ as legitimate good film, go...
I can't help but be mad over the abomination of TLJ, and therefore can't help but not like Rian Johnson. So much of that film was just not put together. I get that you want to go outside the box and surprise people or make a statement, but what came out of that movie? A lack of character development, long winded wasteful VFX scenes, and hardly smirk worthy punch lines.
All prejudice aside I'm sure he's okay to work with, but he was clearly not the right person for this job. He seems like the dude who just wants to flip tables and then tell everyone that it needed to be flipped, even though it was your family dinner table with a home cooked meal on top.
