There are a myriad host of technical innovations that are everyday products for us to use that he helped drive or funded the creation of like photoshop, NLE's to the original creation of Pixar. The list can go on and on.
I wrote a paper on this in film school for a film history II class and the prof. gave me a B- because she didn't like Lucas and said well someone else would've eventually done this anyways. Oh well.
Arguably Roger Corman is also one of the most important filmmakers of our time because of how he brought up and encouraged a young group of filmmakers and actors and actually laid down the foundations for Hollywood blockbusters that Spielberg and Lucas bounced this idea off of.
Didn't Square try this same crap with the main CG character from the Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within? Think this model looks worse than that one from 2000.
You changed the fps so 180 degrees wouldn't be the shutter anyways, it would be 1/250ths. This is also why you require more light. It is also why I hate the whole "180-degree rule" referring to shutter, it's just nonsense and the 180-degree rule should only be used to mean the line for camera/subject blocking.
Just a week ago this guy was all over facebook fighting consumers who "complained". Really bad stuff. Seems like he deleted the post but I think I have it saved somewhere.
What do you do when the post that your clients are using are still using a mac? Those drives need to be set up for a mac, they want pro res. I wouldn't jump back to PC just yet. I feel like by going this route one is just settling and patching up the leaks instead of just having pipes that don't leak at all. OWC/MacSales has some decently priced docks with more ports built in than this laptop.
I feel like this post is a blast from the past, 2007 maybe 2006.
If you can't get funding for the film but can if shot digitally, don't be stubborn, accept it and shoot it on digital and do it right or else you'll never get your film made and that's far worse. Some kid is out there right now doing what you love, getting their story made and learning more than you using an iPhone and all the more power to them. I love reading Roger Deakins talk about this stuff too, it seems to boil down to him saying "get the story down with any camera you have".
Not sure what you're talking about not being able to shoot a video outside either... I think you have some more to learn about in that aspect too.
