New Zealand Announces Changes To Film And TV Production Incentives And Funding - Entertainment & Stars

New Zealand Announces Changes To Film And TV Production Incentives And Funding - Entertainment & Stars | HDSLR | Scoop.it

New Zealand is hoping to attract more big-budget film and TV productions in the country by lowering the qualifying budget thresholds for productions. Minister for Economic Development Steven Joyce and Minister of Arts, Culture and Heritage Christopher Finlayson announced the changes to the Large Budget Screen Product Grant on Wednesday.

planetMitch's insight:

Sounds like a smart move - hopefully will encourage other locations to entice films as well (or is this bad for the economy by putting pressure on cities/states to lower their income just to support local businesses?)

News Shooter | Zacuto Z-finder for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera now available for pre-order | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Zacuto have opened up pre-orders for their latest product, the Z-finder for Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera. I have personally been waiting for this product for a while now since first seeing a prototype at the IBC show in Amsterdam. I know there are alternative loupe around for the BMPCC now but I have always preferred to use a Zacuto finder if possible thanks to the excellent optics and the clip-on mount system

Zacuto announces the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera Z-Finder!

Zacuto announces the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera Z-Finder! | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Earlier this year, BlackMagic introduced their Pocket Cinema Camera. This pocket sized camera with Super 16 digital sized sensor is packed with features! Barely had the camera hit the market before requests for a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Z-Finder started pouring in to Zacuto. We listened! Our standard DSLR Z-Finders didn’t fit perfectly, so we went back to the drawing board and created a new Z-Finder specifically designed to suit the shape and size of the Blackmagic Pocket Camera and its LCD.

We spent time to find ways to not only increase its potential over our competitors but do it at a less expensive price point. This new super lightweight design won’t weigh you or your camera down! The Blackmagic Pocket Camera Z-Finder comes with a Zacuto adhesive frame for the BMPCC’s 3.5” LCD screen. The Zacuto Z-Finder pops on and off the frame for quick shooting. When not in use, the Z-Finder can hang around your neck with the included lanyard so it is always close by.

Gee, if Rodney Charters says it is a 'must have' then you'd better run out and get one :)

'Is It Dead?' Keep Your Script Alive by Avoiding These Screenwriting Clichés « No Film School

'Is It Dead?' Keep Your Script Alive by Avoiding These Screenwriting Clichés « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Let me be the first to say that clichés aren’t inherently bad. They play an important role in filmmaking and screenwriting as a sort of shorthand expression that is easier to convey than the larger, more complex idea it represents. However, clichés can also be a crutch; I’m sure all of us are guilty of leaning too heavily on a tried and true tired and trite line of dialog or action. This infographic presented by the New York International Latino Film Festival highlights several movie clichés that you might want to avoid, or get really, really good at selling to your audience to keep your story from arriving DOA in the hands of a reader.

Once upon a time, there was a thing called film | HDSLR | Scoop.it

   In BuzzFeed user Henry Goldman's short video for children, “Film Photography Explained to Modern Kids”, the narrator says, “The way you shared a photo of someone back then was you put it in their hands and they looked at it.” This wonderful sentiment permeates the whole video, which is designed to teach modern kids about film.

LG is Launching a 'Real 4K' Monitor With a Resolution of 4096 x 2160 Just for Filmmakers « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

4K computer monitors aren’t new. In fact, several models are currently available right now from makers such as Asus, Sharp, and Dell. However, LG recently announced their first 4K monitor, which seems to be targeted at filmmakers. How? Well, typically 4K monitors offer a 16:9 aspect ratio, but this 31″ monitor, called 31MU95, not only offers 4K resolution, but also a 19:10 IPS panel (a DCI compliant 1.9 aspect ratio), which LG has dubbed “Real 4K.” Continue on for more.

Canon Rumor: A New High End, High Resolution EOS DSLR With Hybrid Viewfinder (named EOS-A1?) - CanonWatch | HDSLR | Scoop.it

I am getting lots of rumors about Canon’s future plans and projects these days, and while I will not post anything because either I do not have a double confirmation or what I am told is simply not credible, I decided to post what follows because it came from two sources. However: This comes from new sources so let’s take it with a good grain of salt...
