News stations care=) BMD is trying to move in on Sony who has the ENG market mostly wrapped up. For news gathering and some doc work a cinema camera is inadequate compared to a smaller sensor and B4 lens.
Next tip...you can protect your lens by using the cap=) What passes for tips these days, hehe.
I think its basic numbers. Nearly every freelance cameraman we can find with experience is a man. Almost every editor/motion designer the agency sends us is a guy. The graphic designers are exclusively women. The studios we work with have mostly guys, with women filling the producer/admin/scripting roles. On the bigger crews I've never seen a hint of sexism or anyone being demeaned personally, that they didn't deserve=) The DP blasted all his guys over something that wasn't happening when he wanted.
Nothing stops any female from learning to edit, learning lighting, going to school and getting out there. NOTHING.
For Creatives, the contacts you make is more important than any NAME, because there isn't a single employer(in our field) on earth that cares where you learned or how you learned. Only that you can CREATE and problem solve and get along with people. Bigger named schools have better resources and contacts, so that's where the money is spent. Your circle of friends you make at school is VITAL!!!!! Smaller schools, especially now can have nice resources as well and depending on your classmates, just as high a caliber as anywhere else.
"Creative" or basic editing 101? A lot of it was more sound editing.
Uuuum. How about using AC? South FL is about as humid as it gets. I assume this is for some locations in the world that haven't invented it yet=) 30 yrs and NEVER had anything growing on camera gear.
