Dremel + old adapter = same effect. (If you like it.) A good case for less is more.
This makes no sense. She's using four layers to do color correction that could have easily been done on one. The original footage isn't overexposed, it just needs some contrast. But she uses the light gray walls to set the white point. Ridiculous!
Old-school, editors used to overlay a slightly blurred layer to reduce DV jaggies and give a little post diffusion effect but these days there are better and faster-rendering plug-ins available.
This would be fantastic if we could just use the tools from Camera RAW instead of the limited controls. Photoshop now allows Camera RAW on video but it would be more useful on Premiere Pro. Perhaps that's a future feature.
Wow, this just seems like an awful idea. Those bulbs have one color option forever. Gels let you try different colors or even just double-up by folding the gel in half. They're about $6 a sheet at Filmtools. Plus the work involved. Ugh!
Why didn't RG just put checksums and backup into their BulletProof product. It seems like they have two tools that do similar things. Isn't BP already supposed to be a downloader app?
We need to get the audience to *identify* with the character. Showing vulnerability can work, but no one likes Bond because they feel sorry for him that his boss called. That's just trying to fit the screenwriting theory and I don't buy it. Bond creates fantasy identification--the idea that what he does is exactly what the view would do in the same situation. You create this by showing a character use resourcefulness, courage, spunk, to get out of tough scrapes that seem inescapable.
There are all kinds of identification you can create with a character--showing vulnerability is just one tool. In the course of a movie, you need to use a variety of techniques to establish and constantly re-establish this identification. More techniques creates deeper identification that doesn't feel one-note.
