What happens on the set of an educational show once the cameras stop rolling? Trust us, it's not pretty. It's pretty hilarious, though.

 Our Red Dragon came in Friday night, we quickly prepped the CineStar for the new camera and headed out for a first flight. The fact that you can have this kind…
planetMitch's insight:

Boy, I'm not sure I'd take my incredibly expensive RED Dragon for a flight over water, but Freefly has balls :) 


Beautiful footage!

New ARRI ALEXA XT B+W Monochrome Camera is Native 2000 ISO & Has 15 Stops of Dynamic Range « No Film School

New ARRI ALEXA XT B+W Monochrome Camera is Native 2000 ISO & Has 15 Stops of Dynamic Range « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Seems like it’s all ARRI news lately, but the company has another new product coming out. We’ve talked a bit about the RED EPIC Monochrome camera that shoots only in black and white, and it gives spectacular results. Now, ARRI is coming right back with their own monochrome camera, which takes most of what people like about the current ALEXA, and pumps up the performance even more. Not only is this camera monochrome, but it’s capable of shooting infrared with the switch of a filter. Check out some of the footage shot on the new B+W:

How Do You Judge Great Cinematography? Fandor Studies the Visuals of the 2014 Oscar Noms « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

What qualifies as great cinematography to you? The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have certainly run the gamut in their nominations for Best Cinematography; the group of honored films consists of a diverse selection of stories told by some of the most talented DPs of our time, which makes one wonder — what does the “best” cinematography look like anyway? Fandor has put together yet another compilation of footage from this year’s Oscar nominees in cinematography in an effort to dissect, break down, and study each of their visual artistry.

I have a secret. And this is a very, very important post.

Last week Jarred invited me to test out the new Epic Dragon OLPF plus the new camera/sensor calibration. For the last couple days I've been digging into it real hard.

I'll keep it brief because the images do the talking.

Lost & Abandoned: 10 Movies That Were Shot, But Eventually Scrapped

Lost & Abandoned: 10 Movies That Were Shot, But Eventually Scrapped | HDSLR | Scoop.it
Undoubtedly the biggest news story of 2014 so far (unless Apichatpong Weerasethakul replaced J.J. Abrams as director of "Star Wars: Episode VII" in between us writing this and it going live) revolves around Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight." It was announced as being the director's next movie, only for the script to apparently leak, reportedly through one of the potential actor's agents, and that caused Tarantino to announce that he was scrapping the project, at least for the moment. (He's also suing Gawker for helping disseminate the screenplay).
