A little bit of a shameless plug for something I'm working on, but it seems appropriate given the subject of the article and video. (This is still in pre-production.)
With a whip pan, if you have enough frames to work with from both pans, I'd try to do a quick dissolve from one to the next for a bit better blending. It might be unnecessary, but for the few seconds of work during editing I'd do it anyway.
I've got two Pelican 0350 cases, and one has a big crack in the bottom that apparently happened at the factory - the boxes were undamaged. I bought the two and left them in the boxes for several months before taking them out, so I think I screwed myself in terms of a warranty replacement, and the procedure for it are more hassle than it's worth. Pelican isn't worth the cost, in my experience.
Congratulations to Ryan! Here's to 2017 being the beginning to a fast rise for him in the film world.
Food - breakfast bars or something. I've been on shoots where food was poor or absent and REALLY needed the boost from having food in my stomach.
Small white, gray and focus cards.
Benadryl for allergies. (I think they might help a little with minor reactions to insect stings.)
Sunscreen, ideally a spray that leaves no greasy residue.
A few cable ties, Bongo ties, and my favorite - Matth-Ties, good for more than just butterflies and such.
Foil hat, bazooka, blow-up doll, the usual stuff...
Any reader comments about the use of carbon particle lens pens? I've used one a little on a lens I wasn't particularly attached to and it seemed okay. I keep one in my bag to be used only on a UV filter.
