A good film list tells you about movies a bad one tells you about its authors.
Only 3 of these would be in any serious top fifty and then there is the usual American myopia.
Overall reads as grab bag of ponderous mediocrity with a couple of film school touchstones for belated cred.
Comeon - Bloomkamp has done his two original ideas doco cam plus aliens and immigration - invasion analogy and now he's just cannibalising the terminator universe but with ponderous voiceover to try and hide the complete lack of imagination.
Go design post apocalyptic games already ...
JPA is a filmmaker I want to like but his style is so unengaging I always come out wondering why I dont care.
I like his themes, stories, actors and performances but some combination of the cinematography and cutting leaves me in 3rd person no matter how powerful the acting and dramatic the scene.
Want to feel but just don't get any help from his visual style.
Wow - some of these thoughts are mind blowing. Forget picture -chase sounds with your camera. If you want strong sound go close more environmental further away !
Nothing about getting atmos or coverage or protection against noise or interference.
I have no doubts the guy has done a sound course but film sound - not at all.
The options are not between a pro mixer and nothing - they are between a pal with a mic either with a wire back to your camera or better to a cheap recorder. The best sound is rarely captured from the same angle as the best shot. But better again is to borrow a zoom or olympus hand recorder (I phone if you must) and mic it up and get a pal or student to get sound whilst you attend to the pictures. You can hire a field recorder mic and wire for a day for about $50. Try student union hire for best prices. http://www.scarycow.com/lowbudgetaudio/
Fraid this is another common NFS 3rd party advertisement dressed up as a article.
Not so awful if the "experts' actually knew something about film sound but not guilty here.
Actually on further investigation the lenshound kickstarter competition is more likely to be the CAMETV drop price prompt featuring $395 to & 750 option bundles for a very similar unit it to the cinegear / cametv http://nofilmschool.com/2015/01/lenzhound-open-source-wireless-follow-focus.
Wonder if this article on the USD 375 (shipped)http://www.ebay.com/itm/Aputure-DEC-MFT-Lens-Adapter-Follow-Focus-Contro...
- Aputure DEC lens assist follow focus recently profiled in videomaker http://www.videomaker.com/article/18072-aputure-dec-adapter-review had any part in CaneTV's sudden price re-evaluation?
