side not : why is the dude in the photo wearing a heavy rain coat in the studio ?
Good stuff right here, thank you ! Just what the internet was created for.
Gandulf, if you're looking for male talent I can get it up now and again on the rare occasions that I'm sober.
Your very good health !
*dilettantes . . .don't drink and post kids :)
Don't wait for others. If they can't commit, find somebody else.
This is the lesson I learned about commercial video. There are a lot of dilletatntes who can't help you with that real estate shoot thats going to pay your electricity bill this month because they might be getting a walk on role in a no name indie film, etc.
Find people who are ready to go, who understand commercial pays the bills and hones your craft.
Prep. isn't procrastination, it's everything. If you're prepping, you're working, but checking NFS for camera reviews isn't prep work :)
Shooting a ton of crap isn't the same as shooting one, well prepared piece.
I should know, I've shot a ton of crap.
Don't beat yourself up about procrastination, just make it productive. If I can't face the editing work, I look up a cinema 4d / Illustrator / whatever- you -need to learn tutorial on you tube and try that instead.
I bought one three weeks ago.
I love it for all the functionality it has, not what it " lacks " according to the internet.
It will pay for itself over two years easily, probably longer and is a pleasure to work as a one man outfit.
I struggled with the 4K question but it's moot for my level of production. It's a gimmick and an expense that my clients don't need.
If you can suck up the costs, go 4K, but are you doing it to justify some paranoia / tech fetish perpetuated by places like NFS ?
Be honest with yourself, your needs and the needs of the people you're making films for.
Then make a decision.
I hope you enjoy the camera you end up buying.
