Great reading, inspiring.
Although methodes have change over time, there is a lot to be learned from this inside information.
What a hike!
Thanks for posting "Singalila", I could not stop watching ; ) Overwhelming scenery, nice infographics. You must be in a good shape to be hiking at those altitudes.
What a life some people on this earth live, without the electronics disturbing your inner self. It's meditational all the way. Though not a suitable topic here.
How much text does it take to explain things? Please calm down and choose your words with care, so not to flood the ears of the viewer. Mine got clogged up. It's a pity, because the tutorial looked well prepared.
Thanks for your insight on one of my favourite films.
Why do people have red eyes when flash is used in photo's? Your explanation goes a long way, but stops where the difference between photo and film matter.
The eye pupils take time to react to a flash and only after the immanent shutter release, the pupils will shrink.
The suggestion of using a small light to redden the eyes of the replicant is valid for only the first frames of the shot. After that, the pupils will accommodate to the new light intensity and shrink. The red eye effect will no longer be present.
Imo the suggestion of stock footage being used with the wrong, green eye color, seems far fetched. It is trying to hold up this theory and totally ignoring the intentions of a dp, a director who could have presented eye footage in any color at the same time.
So, I am not sold. It was interesting all the same.
Minsk is something else in Belarus. It looks like an ordinary capitalistic city. An impressive building activity. Expensive cars. Trendy bars.
Outside Minsk is a lot different. Though the scenery is noticeably improving in the countryside the last 3 years, regions are still set back.
It is in such a region that I am making a documentary of a humanitarian aid to a boarding school which is attended by orphans who have difficulties communicating verbally.
Visiting Belarus 5 years in a row to make a documentary, taught me that a small footprint helps to get the material you are looking for: the spontaneous talks, planned interviews (less intimidating). It also makes you more ready when in transport. (first year I almost broke my back, too many boxes, too many tripods and what so ever.)
So, in time I went from DSLRs to Canon C100 (beautiful color!) to iPhone SE ; ) last time. What you loose in picture quality, is made up for with shots that would have been impossible to make with the heavier gear.
All points above from the explorers guide are valid. Point 4. Storing footage: The shots were dumped on a laptop and 2 portable drives. One drive I carried in my pocket. This to avoid the nightmare of coming home without material.
