  1. Red Epic EVF/LCD standby/recording indicator??

    It's been a while.... a technical problem on set brings me here.... Apologises first up if this is an easy fix but I am reasonably new to the epic and today we encountered an issue where the LCD and EVF do not display any indication of whether the camera is rolling or not and so we had to rely...
  2. Shooting with Canon and Nikon?

    I have a shoot coming up where mostly due to budget constraints and ideas of the director we are shooting a Canon and Nikon DSLR side by side. They are in the same league as each other (6D and D610) but I need to find the best settings to be able to shoot and make them cut together. Has anybody...
  3. Low power generator?

    So I was thinking it'd be cool if I had a small generator that could power just 2 or 3 standard house globes for when you're on location and need a cheaper and more portable solution for some fill light or something. I've searched different things like low wattage generator, 500w (and smaller)...
  4. Proam jibs?

    I'm looking into getting a Proam Jib. (http://www.proamusa.com/) I've used one briefly on set, but not really enough to get a real feel for what they are like. Curious as to anybody's thoughts on the products, is their life limited? Is it going to break after two years? Also wondering if...
  5. watch My latest wedding video

    Hey guys, I've been pretty busy just crewing on a lot of films of late so have had almost no time for my own content, but here is the latest wedding I shot and edited from last week. Any feedback is welcome https://vimeo.com/102494821 Cheers! Brendan
  6. watch Benny Vee - 'Purpose' music video

    Hey guys, over the last couple of days I've been working on a music video with one of the guys I live with. A lot of it was made up on the spot and the basic story was influenced mostly by the musician. It's my first music video like this so I'm keen to hear people's thoughts, mostly on the...
  7. watch Where's Your Adventure? - 1st year film school 90 second film

    Hi guys, I've been busy at film school and helping on tonnes of sets and we've finally finished our first film. It had to be a 90second film, which in this case meant it had to be under 90seconds. It was written in our script class and edited on AVID in our postproduction class...
  8. watch My 2013/2014 showreel

    I haven't made a video showreel of my work for a while so I recently quickly whipped this one up, this includes footage from some of the events and films that I was the camera operator or DOP for. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ju8M835c3cE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ju8M835c3cE Let me...

  10. Auditioning via Skype

    Hi guys, I have a shoot this weekend for my film and I've posted a listing on an auditioning site and have been in contact with a few actors. At this stage I don't have time to meet any of them in person before the shoot and so I am planning a Skype audition, which I've never really done...
  11. Photography sub forum

    Obviously this is a film forum, but a lot of us take photos, and more and more frequently I am seeing threads that are solely photography based. Would it be a good idea to add a photography sub forum? (Clearly just a suggestion to the admin, but wanting some thoughts from forum members too)
  12. My film school experience (diary/journal)

    Hi everyone, I've been quiet for a bit, moving house and just generally being busier. This week I started at a film school in Australia and I thought I would document some of my experiences, similar to what I did when I had my first set experience; So I will be semi regularly updating this post...
  13. How to calculate a day rate?

    I've been asked for a day rate and I thought I would ask some advice on how people generally calculate their day rate. I've read a few things online but they are seem more specific to jobs like an electrician where guaranteed work is higher. I've heard union guys on set say people in the film...
  14. watch Some more aerial shorts

    Just two more little aerial shorts that I've done recently. I'll be updating this thread every now and then with some of the other little shorts that I've been doing recently. For those unaware, they are shot with the DJI Phantom Quadcopter with a GoPro Hero3 Black on a Tarot Gimbal. The GoPro...
  15. watch Wedding Highlights video - Bendigo, Australia

    I haven't shot a wedding in a while, and I've never actually edited the highlights clip for one, but I recently did one in November. The couple love it, which is of course the main thing, but if anyone has any suggestions feel free. https://vimeo.com/85314412
  16. Hitfilm express is FREE for a limited time

    Saw this morning that the express version of Hitfilm valued at $150 is free for a limited time. For anyone not wanting to spend money on After Effects or the full Hitfilm version, or anyone just wanting to give Hitfilm a test this is a great opportunity to give it a shot...
  17. watch Mountain Biking video!

    SO again I've filmed some sports, this time Mountain Biking. I love filming these kind of sports and want to do a heap more, pity some are hard with the speed to film on a steadicam. Shot over 3 separate days across almost 6 months (I wanted some aerial shots but I wasn't yet ready to shoot...
  18. Swearing severity in film

    This is obviously a NSFW thread. Mostly out of curiosity, I was wondering how others around the world rank differing profanities particularly in film. It's amazing what a single word can do to skew the rating of a film and I just wanted to find out what other individuals/countries. To you what...
