Tutorials & Tips From Ryan E. Walters

Tutorials & Tips From Ryan E. Walters | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile already know that back in August I wrote that FCP X was dead. Those were not easy words for me to write, as I used the program since version 1. At the time, when I gave it another spin, I still found it to be a tightly closed system that didn't fit my needs, so I continued to use Premiere.

Video: The History of Editing, Eisenstein, & the Soviet Montage « No Film School

Video: The History of Editing, Eisenstein, & the Soviet Montage « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Essentially ever since cinema’s inception, there has been a great question about its complicated nature — answers to which have spawned an even greater debate among film theorists: What makes a film a film? One theory, formulated by Russian filmmaker and “Father of Montage”, Sergei Eisenstein, claims that the footage captured by a camera is nothing more than raw material. Not until that raw material is edited do you have a film — at least according to the Soviet Theory of Montage. John P. Hess of Filmmaker IQ breaks down the history of montage editing in the second video in their History of Cutting series.

Gritty Film Causes Controversy Over America’s Youth | Fstoppers

Gritty Film Causes Controversy Over America’s Youth | Fstoppers | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Back in October 2013, I went to the Philadelphia Film Festival and was lucky enough to catch the documentary film 12 O’Clock Boys, by Lofty Nathan. After the film debuted, Nathan answered some of the audience’s questions. One of the most controversial questions asked was how race played a factor while shooting in a predominantly black neighborhood. Though this is only the trailer, questions of race and acceptance are constantly brought up as you watch riveting clips of young boys trying to prove themselves as men. While I don’t want to get into a political debate over America’s youth, this film is unforgettably gritty and one that you won’t want to miss.

Watch the Amazing 6 Minute Single Take from HBO's 'True Detective' & Learn How They Pulled it Off « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

If you aren’t watching one of the most talked about shows on cable, True Detective, directed entirely by Cary Fukunaga, don’t feel bad (or maybe you should?). Either way, the slow burning anthology series turned up the heat over the weekend with a masterful one take scene that will likely be one of the best you’ll see all year. We’ve got some more information about how it was actually created, but if you haven’t seen it, there is a video of the entire scene (beyond just the one take) below. The scene really doesn’t spoil that much, especially since it’s mostly out of context, but here is your warning either way.

Sony Alpha 7R Review: Digital Photography Review

Sony Alpha 7R Review: Digital Photography Review | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Two products that have been getting a lot of attention lately are the Sony a7 and a7R full-frame mirrorless cameras. Last month we took an in-depth look at the Alpha 7, and were mostly pleased with how it turned out. Now it's time to take a look at its big brother, the Alpha 7R, which offers a 36 megapixel sensor with no low-pass filter and a more conventional autofocus system. Is the a7R worth the price premium over the a7? Click below to find out.
