I mad a conscious choice a few years ago to balance my crews more when I am directing.
I just noticed myself, the camera department would almost always be entirely male.
But it turned out to be quite hard to find experienced women DPs and cam ops. If I got 200 resumes, only about 10-15 would be women. And with such a larger pool of male applicants, the chances of finding the person with the most relevant experience was often male.
If you or your DP don't know the answer immediately, then get a c300 mark ii and save the money and enjoy batteries that last all day. Put the extra time saved on set into getting more coverage.
aha yes good point:)
i have a question :)
The images you are using in this article of 'lawyers' from film and tv shows-
did you license the images? Or they are considered fair use?
the short answer is no;) The longer answer is - until you have a body of work large enough to pull material from to make a reel, show what you have for now. Recognize that potential clients may turn you away for that reason, but just go for it.
that was my experience exactly. i tried Fcx after a decade of FC7, hated it, switched to premiere, and still miss 7.
