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.
Eh. Every school has its advantages and disadvantages. To me Emerson's advantage is Boston and then the LA program that is now super built up and really sets you up for a decent life in LA if that is what you want.
Everyone I know who went to Tisch hasn't amount to much, counting on the name to carry them and get them directing jobs right out of college not realizing a better idea would just be for them to make their own films, that things take time, and you may have to work some crap jobs at first because nobody cares that you're the PA who went to Tisch.
Fitchburg state in MA has a great program and seems to really set graduates up for career's in film production and their graduates always seem to have a good head on their shoulders and constantly working.
You do have to factor in the cost of living, cost of books and other materials plus to finance the films in addition to the tuition. Personally I don't think Tisch is worth to me, BUT if you want a start in NYC it's a good idea, but a greater idea could be another NYC school with a great film program.
You could always just transfer in later and save even more.
Pricey? Yet you're considering Tisch? Um....
