I love my magic carpet. I've cut my short track down a bit to be even a little smaller and more portable. Great slider.
Up your game NFS, constantly reading grammatical/spelling errors or just bad writing. Yet in truth this is essentially my home page, I normally read daily. I guess it just proves most people will still consume subpar content :/
Gotta second this comment. Zoom H1 has been a staple in my kit for years and always come in handy. Sort of one of those upgrades that didn't really need to happen but it seems like a decent refresh for those who don't already own one.
I love handheld for documentary and event work but agree that most current blockbusters and now television is leaning a bit hard on handheld camera work to give them a "real" feel back since so much CGI is being implemented. And don't get me started on what the Office did and didn't do for comedy/network camera work. Everyone is obsessed (and has been for years) with fake docu-style shooting now, it gets a bit boring. It's almost like handheld if the safe choice now rather than a break from the norm.
This video is amazing, mainly because of the sound recordist who is way to happy with how it sounds. Giving so many nods and approval sounds.
Excedrin & Ibprophen. Nothing worse than a headache on set/location. Eye drops for myself as well as for talent. When I shoot weddings often brides and grooms have a bit too much to drink and their eyes can show that In a bad way.
