It's amazing how triggered some get at the mere suggestion that more filmmakers of color should be, at the very least, considered; particularly considering that art is made from more than one perspective, and that perspective is often subjective. If that subjectivity is from the purview of one group then the result is a potentially homogenous idea of what is, and isn't, considered art.
I own the Saramonics as well. They're an awesome budget option.
It's a shame that most NFS readers will learn about the Tulsa Race Riots from this article. Kudos to the team behind Watchmen for taking the time to tackle the topic.
The Panasonic Varicam has traction in television. These are Oscar nominees. Several star big names and, therefor, have the budget for more expensive tools. They are, however, not the only entertaining films being made. Steven Soderbergh just shot his second film with an iPhone. Furthermore, there are several people, including myself, who found Tangerine entertaining and well done. Horses for courses.
I love my G7. The only issue is no HDMI output while recording, so you can't use an external monitor. It does have focus peaking however.
I love the show. It's well written, and beautifully shot.
