I wasn't even really attacking his character. Just putting the same examples given into a different context so it's clearer how rediculous the post is.
My grandfather just died and left me $50k. He's always wanted me to follow my dreams so I want to do just that.
I've always wanted to own my own restaurant and I think this is the time to make my dream come true.
I've never worked in a restaurant and have very little culinary experience (my friends say I make some pretty good spaghetti). Here are some photos of dishes I've made at home...
Mac N Cheese: http://www.kraftfoods.com/assets/recipe_images/Simple_Mac_n_Ham_Dinner.jpg (the store didnt was so out of cheddar mix so I just used American)
(I didnt make the tortillas, I couldnt find a recipe so I just bought them)
I'm thinking I can just buy someone's restaurant with my money, but I just don't know who's. Maybe something a little up-scale. What restaurant should I buy?
I don't want to buy Asian because I think there are too many ingredients and I'm worried that means there's not enough flavor.
I also don't want to offer fish, cause I think it's just gross.
A few restaurants have failed in San Francisco and I think it's because of hiring bad chefs. Who can I hire so that doesn't happen? What if I just act as the chef?
I know this is a long post and I am sorry if I posted it in the wrong forum, I just figured you can't go wrong if you post in Off Topic.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this, and doubly appreciate any advice you may have (I actually won't and just be upset that you oppose how I am going about this).
You can also download these 2k, 4k, etc ones and just resize them in editing.
Example: 2K bars to fit at 720p are 63% scale and that's the only change you need to make.
I'm not a professional colorist nor do I understand everything about color and color correction...
The answer isnt just shooting super flat and fixing color in post. There are multiple reasons for this:
1. You can only do so much. They shot this movie on some sort of Alexa that has the ability to be pushed or pulled a lot. Try doing this stuff with 5D footage or even an older HPX500. You'll be at a loss. If you've ever done photo editing, its like trying to edit jpegs vs RAW format.
2. The DP knows what can and cannot be done with image in post and what he has to do in production to get it that way. He's not saying "we'll shoot it flat and figure out the tone in post", we already knows the tone, and shooting this style gives him the ability to really bring out that tone.
3. Shooting it right and with a certain look in camera will stop you from having problems later. Im not saying Dont Shoot Flat, but shoot it correctly in camera so youre not fixing errors in post as opposed to enhancing the image.
Let me know if that's confusing or answers what you were looking for.
Why is no one more critical of this video? Sure, its a decent video, and as a stand alone short it works. After Effects and some lighting could be improved, but your angles and story telling is great.
Where you missed the mark was hitting on Doritos brand and their campaign. I don't watch Doritos commercials on a regular basis, but based on what I've seen and a few Semi-Finalists I've watch, you didn't capture what Doritos Brand is about. Doritos is about always wanting them, dreaming about them, and basically doing absurd things to get just a taste of Doritos.
None are about the crunch, and thats basically the only thing yours is about. At the end, it does nothing to entice me to want Doritos and doesn't match their brand.
Good work, but literally it's not what they are going for.
Yeah I was thinking the same. Why wouldnt you just use 800 native for ISOs between 100-3200 and then Native 5000 for 3200-12800? You arent even dropping that Native 5000 1 stop to get to 3200.
