The blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k is never coming out edition... (seriously, when do we get some good direct footage?)
>STICKY - https://pastebin.com/vbJV0Wia
>Helpful guide and additional books - https://pastebin.com/kG0gRmTZ

Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.
We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

>NO ONE CARES WHAT AN EXPERT YOU THINK YOU ARE. IF YOU’RE ASKING BASIC-AS-SHIT QUESTIONS, YOU CAN’T BE ALL THAT GREAT. SEE ABOVE

>if you just want the 'best' camera available on a “budget”, buy a Panasonic GH5S

>if you want a camera that works for not much, buy a canon 700d second-hand

>Sony F-Type Batteries to switch from powering lighting with AA (dont know how many and if any other equipment is necessary)
In Studio I do mostly interviews.

looks like a noisy shit, pro tip: just because its a night scene it doesn't mean you have to actually shoot in low light.
>>
>>3311616
It is :|, that's a test for a dreamlike sequence, aiming for that noir feel.
>>
>>3311616
also it's zoomed in, hmm, how do I fix it, don't think I can get better low lit shots with my current equipment
>>
>>3311616
software denoiser seems to work
>>
>>3311918
Denoisers are hit and miss. One low light shot I got was usable, and the other was a noisy mess and will only be used if I can’t reshoot it. It’s a documentary so I don’t really want to stage shit; just record another ceremony.

I used the nice plug-in for Divinci Resolve and it worked like a boss.
>>
>>3311901
Unless you are shooting documentary type stuff where you can’t use lights because you are shooting a real even where external lighting is not allowed, why not just use light with a blueish hue to simulate nighttime.
>>
>>3311020
1) video head if your current one is too jerky for smooth pans and tilts or your camera doesn't feel stable during operation
people are so willling to drop stacks on exciting gear like camera and lenses but cheap out on support. don't be that guy

2) backdrops,
but I wouldn't conduct the interviews standing. sitting would generally lead to a more relaxed talent. you want them to be comfortable so you're just trying to add production value here

3) brighter lights...cheaper than using a speedbooster if your current interviews are too dark but go ahead and get it if you really want to

4) just get eneloops or amazonbasics

So i work at a local News smalltown
I take care of the newspaper but now my boss want to create a video division and want me to be the his camera/edit guy.

Is the Canon Ax30 a good camera for the job ?
like small events,seminars, parties and interviews ? He said ok for the price.
Also "gives the professionalism look" as his words.

Any opinions ?

Yup, get a wireless mic for interviews and something onboard and most of these sort of palmcorders make great ENG cameras.

Obviously you can spend more to get better AF/resolution/codecs/sensor size, but this should work great.
>>
I am looking for a camera that can serve both as a cinema camera and an ENG camera. I am a stringer for Indymedia so I want something that can be used to record press conferences, but I also want something that can be used to create short Indy films as well. Since this is more for artsy pieces not commercial pieces I want a camera that’s affordable. Since I create deep fakes to post on /pol/ for research purposes only, I have a computer that can handle big codec files and raw files. This is my just autism toy and not my work tool so I want something that works but won’t break the bank. Does such a camera exist?
>>
>>3312214
You're not going to get both for cheap. The nearest to what you're asking for would be an fs7 or an fs5 or something.

I have its predecessor, the XA20. It's a pretty good camera and I'd assume the 30 is even better, especially considering how much the price has fallen. It's not a cine camera by any stretch of the imagination but it's quite good for what you need it for. I mostly use mine for motorsports videos but I've shot some behind the scenes stuff and interviews for midsize movie productions and they've gone to air or to DVD extras etc.

I'm now editing a short film and a pretty big chunk of it ended up blurry and poorly focused (the camera operator seemingly didn't notice it).
Is there a way I can use Premiere effects to make it less blurry? Or at least to make it look less awful?
>>
>>3313380
No. Convalude a story reason for the blurryness and then say it was intentional.
>>
>>3313380
generally, no. at least you learned.
>>
>>3313380
The only way to do this is to find another camera operator that cares and reshoot.
>>
>>3313380
No. You can sharpen only very slightly
>>
A few questions:

How much focus throw should a lens have for video?
I just got a Nikkor 28-85mm 3.5-4.5 Ais and while its runs smooth its only 105°. Is this too short?

Whats the best follow focus for under 200€?

How do I know how much counterweight my Glidecam needs? So far I got it balanced with slow drop time but it still swings while moving.

For building a (shoulder) rig, is Smallrig a good option for parts? What alternatives are there?

I always use lens hoods for shooting still but for video with ND filter it gets complicated. How to solve this. Stacking up and down rings? Matte box? If so, whats a good budget one? Even though, I dont want to look like a tryhard with such a huge thing attached if not necessary + the weight.

Cheap monitor with low latency?


Will try to answer future questions as a giveback as well.

Why do amateur and even a lot of mid-budget indie productions have such poor sound? What makes it so difficult and/or misunderstood in production?
Is it the recording or the mixing or something else? The equipment? How do I avoid poor sound? For all my dislike of high budget blockbusters, I have to say that at least they do have amazing sound
>>
>>3313835
I usually use an external recorder or do voiceovers to get good sound. Video cameras are hit and miss when it comes to sound. I use an Olympus recorder for environmental noise and interviews. Any recorder should work, the zoom seems very popular.
>>
>>3313380
Make it a point in the plot that someone needs new glasses to explain why everything is blurry; or make it a point that one of the characters is drunk and has some beer goggles on.
>>
>>3313848
yeah that's basic, of course i'm not talking about straight from camera audio
i'm asking why even with recorders and dedicated shotgun mics etc "even a lot of mid-budget indie productions" have shit sound
>>
>>3313850
Probably because they don’t re-record stuff. I kno I have to do a lot of do overs to get good audio. I’m guessing a lot of audio is shit because people just don’t take the time to redo a bad audio recording.
>>
>>3311895
Le dark blueish garbage, so orginal my dude
>>
>>3313850
I would outline 2 points:

Firstly video people tend to be very visual and understand the whole discipline as a visual art-form. (Look even the names for it: film, movie, motion picture. all weighten the visual aspect). So it is no wonder that especially beginners underestimate and overlook audio and even if not, lack skill and equipment. (I mean the more or less only recommended audio recorder here is a zoom h1 .. .)

Which leads to the second point where I would say that audio is not less a craft and art as video. And it is hard to be good in it. As a matter of fact I know many brilliant top productions which still have horrible sound. It's like any other art and today's odds are that some moron will cluelessly work on it.
>>
>>3313835
Go find some audiofag with studio monitors and see what most people are missing about sound. You almost need a dedicated sound guy as mics and mixing are a whole discipline that only musicians and youtubers absolutely need to learn from the start. Then you have someone to discuss rythym and editing with and don't have shit foley and ambient along with good scoring.
>>
>>3313896
>>3313897
so the long and short of it is that I can't do it myself with my laptop and headphones?
assuming I am not able to get a dedicated audiofag and a sound studio, is there anything I can do myself to improve my audio (for which I don't have examples to post, I'm speaking hypothetically here)?
>>
>>3313899
You can do it yourself if you take the time and learn to use audio editing software, and watch tutorials about audio editing on YouTube.

It’s just that most people are lazy fucks and would rather hire an audiofag than learn a new skill.
>>
>>3313900
fair enough, you wouldn't happen to have any pointers to good tutorials or anything like that?
>>
>>3313899
Divinci Resolve comes with FarLight an audio editor, and it’s free to use for anything under 4K, and about $300 if you need 4K.

Audition is good software and is free to use.

Audigy from Adobe is also good, but not free.

All you need is a pc or laptop with a sound card and headphones to edit audio.

It shouldn’t cost that much, and you should already have one for editing video.

I’d get studio headphones not cheap crap; they are way less expensive than studio speakers.

No need for extra gear such as hardware mixers unless you plan on becoming an audio editing pro; your mouse will work just fine with the editors and save you some coin.
>>
>>3313902
Well I already have full davinci and audition, a laptop with sound card, and studio headphones, so I guess I just need to learn the theoretical side of it
>>
>>3313899
You're going to need really nice headphones and probably a DAC at the very least. The dynamic range and sheer flatness from even cheap studio monitors is horrifying and I can't go back. You can hear people breathing in the booth and amps do naughty things. Then you have to account for what a theater sub does to everything. I dropped a grand just to hear fat Wata braps at half the volume of a live show.

You can get away with less, like good studio headphones, but sound production is founded in having better gear than the target medium.
>>
>>3313901
Not sure how good this tutorial is but it’s long so it should cover a lot.

Use fair light cuz it’s free and avoid icotope unless you want to spend some coin.

https://youtu.be/BLu4ePGXYWs

As an added bonus resolve which includes fair light has a kick ass color correction tool and a video editor that blows adobe premiere out of the fucking water.
>>
>>3313906
scratch that, it doesn't have a soundcard

>>3313907

he wouldn't have to waste so much money and time syncing audio if he just use a gh5. to shoot a jewtube video.
shit, if he wants to splurge on money, a sony a7s ii + external recorder.
>>
>>3313899
record as precisely as you can. garbage in garbage out. practice with your setup a lot to figure out the best gain settings for mic and/or recorder and proper distance for your mics. most booms have to be close. lavs will get lots of room tone.
>>
>>3314406
He is using a Red 8k cinema camera to make jewtube videos, I don’t think he is concerned about wasting his money on stuff he doesn’t need.

Why the fuck would you need a Red 8k cinema camera to make jewtube videos, is their a reason for it, or is it just to brag and jack his spergy penis looking at all that gear?
>>
>>3313547
Smallrig is the best value.
Some lens hoods work with the filters, depends on your lens.
Counterweight should be roughly the same weight as a camera rig.
BM Video Assist, Small Monitor HD, Liliput stuff.

Im considering upgrading my setup to a gh5. Basically for recording youtube videos but i want to go 4k60fps. Are there any other options for the price? Also how does it differ from the gh5s?
>>
>>3314727
What is with this trying to get people to use Sony cameras? Not everybody is made of money, and can afford a new camera. Pointers on how to use the gear the person who made this video has will help him, and will help others who’d rather shoot videos than buy more gear.
>>
>>3314733
The Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k does 60 frames at 4k, comes with an excellent editor and color correction tool, and costs less than the gh5, but you’ll have to preorder it because it will not be shipping until at least September if not later.

On the plus side it shoots in 12bit raw so you’ll be able to color correct your footage like a boss.

It’s p overkill for YouTube but will serve you well if you ever want to shoot film for festivals.
>>
>>3314797
>comes with an excellent editor and color correction tool
Arent these usually done in post? Like on the computer? Tbh right now im filming from my phone so i cant imagine anything being much worse
>>
>>3314799
Also idk if i can hold off till September, thats like money
>>
>>3314799
> it comes with a copy of Divinci Resolve

Yes color correction is done in post. Raw files allow you to do more in post. If you can’t wait and need something now get the gh5. The bmpcc 4k is for people who want to make indy films as well as YouTube videos.

There is no way of telling when that camera will ship, so if you need a new camera now and can’t wait you might want to look into a gh5 and external recorder or some other solution.
>>
>>3314797
>not be shipping until at least September if not later.
an you have to hope the cam does not have babyissues like the old one after its launch.
>>
>>3314808
I think they got their shit kinda down now, the ump was a pretty flawless launch
>>
>>3314805
And an external recorder? I thought it does the recording
>>
>>3314809
That’s why I said it will arrive this September or later. I think they’ll fix all, or at least most issues, before they ship it.

It has some cool features such as recording directly to an external ssd drive so it will be easier to edit the footage.

It also records directly to prores as well as to raw files so it should play well with Final Cut.

The specs look awesome; I hope the camera lives up to the specs.
>>
>>3314812
The external recorder allows you to record a higher quality image than the gh5 can record internally. If you don’t need that higher quality image than you wouldn’t need to get the external recorder.
>>
>>3314812
The external recorder is not necessary to use the camera, you can always add the external recorder, anything made by Atomos, later if you need what it offers.
>>
>>3314812
You can buy a gh5 and an external recorder for like 2 and a half grand overall and get a much worse image than waiting 4 months and spending a thousand bucks on a bmp4k.
Guess which one the panasonic shills will recommend you get?
>>
>>3314727
it was shot with an a7
>>
I'm planning on making a documentary about psychedelics and how they were used in the 60s to help autistic people.

Please rate some test footage I took created so I could experiment with the type of footage that I want to use in my documentary.

I am getting better camera system; the test footage was shot using a Nikon d7200 DSLR and a Sony Handycam. Right now I have a Panasonic AF100 Camcorder that takes Micro Four-Thirds lenses, and I preordered a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k.

I just wanted to make sure the structure of the footage was kino because this is the effect I am going for when I reshoot the footage.

https://vimeo.com/260962687
>>
>>3314862
you can go all the way to 25600 iso on a7s.
12800 iso on a7iii.
28mm f2 or smegma 24 1.4 will help.
>>
>>3314880
that was with a 1.8 lens
>>
>>3314884
crank up it up to 6400 iso
>>
>>3314859
Have you seen any footage from BMPCC 4k? I don't think so, so stop shilling this shit and suggesting shooting RAW for a fucking youtube video. Especially for a person who doesn't even know what a color correction is.
>>
>>3315022
I plan on getting the BMPCC 4k because it can record stuff to prores and the news agency I report for wants everything in prores. It records prores files to an external ssd drive to make it easy for me to get footage to an editor.

The RAW is just some delicious cake for me to play around with. But the ability to record prores to an external hard drive using only the camera is the meal.
>>
>>3315023
youre missing several points lad
1) there is seldom any actual footage from the bmpcc itself yet
2) a bmpcc is an overpowered unnecessary utility of choice for simple youtube videos
>>
>>3315031
But it’s as cheap as fuck, who cares if it has moar power than you need right now, as your videography skills improve you’ll grow into it, and it is 1/2 the price of Panasonic mirrorless cameras.

Unless you really can’t want and need that camcorder now or want to take stills as well as video I don’t really see the point of spending moar money for less features, and something that takes lesser quality video.

Trust me if you are able to shoot higher quality video you’ll eventually find a use for getting that high quality video.
>>
>>3315022
>you spend $1500 more on a worse cameras for your youtube videos and to say otherwise is to be a shill
Ironic...
>>
>>3315031
>1) there is seldom any actual footage from the bmpcc itself yet
So wouldn't it make more sense to buy neither camera and wait?
That way, if it turns out the camera doesn't do as promised (as if, lel), you can get a gh5 for cheaper since the price will only go down with time. Or else the camera will live up to the hype and you haven't wasted 2 grand.

what do
i need maximum quality so proxy isn't really an option
do i need to get a RAID 5 setup? are there any budget friendly solutions?
>>
>>3315130
I produce a 20min tv show. I buy two 3tb harddrives for each episode. what is your problem?
>>
>>3315131
well because by the time i have transcoded all of my footage, i will have at least 2tb worth of data, this will only grow as i edit, grade, do the audio etc, and then on top of that i need to keep backups of everything, so just buying external hard drives is not a viable option
>>
>>3315135
this is why I work on filesystems which allow hardlinking. two internal satas, one as a copy, and I practically just need one copy of the raw footage. everything else is hardlinked. but you have to work with tools which allow you to seperate actual information from controling information. if you have to render a new version with every step in your post, you need an insane amount of data.
and before you complain: people who call themselves digital artists or artists who work digital, and do not have a deeper understanding of how digital even works, are going on my nerves. if you can't handle digital data you are in the from field.

Testing out my Zhiyun Crane. It looks like it actually works best with the cheap kit lens that came with my camera (it goes down to 18mm, which is the widest of all the lenses I have). There's still a bit of shake every time I step, though. Is there anything I can do to improve it?

I've been using inshot and while the app is pretty decent for what I need, it's unstable as fuck and crashes extremely often.

Other than that, would you guys know of an ideal way I could film all of my stuff on mobile and perhaps automatically upload it somewhere online so I can get it on my PC quickly to edit in Premiere (Phone is Galaxy S8, PC is a HP Laptop)

Thanks!

does anyone here use fcpx?
why is it that when i import my footage and "optimize" it, the codec becomes avc1 rather than ProRes 422, which is what fcpx is supposed to optimise to by default

How do I deal with AVCHD files?

It split all the videos up at the 2gb mark. I just need the straight video files, no special editing or anything.

I probably should have just used mp4, but I didn't think to change it before I started recording.

see if you can output 4k to your computer from the camera. at least then you'll know if it's a sony problem.
>>
>>3315549
Can you elaborate? My issue isn't 4K, it's that no matter what I do to change the HDMI Output settings in the a7sii, as soon as I turn on the Shogun, it changes back to 4K HDMI recording
>>
>>3315469
never mind, i figured it out
>>
>>3315547
same here, my old fs100 only outputs 25psf when set to progressive output, and my atomos and video assist only recognizes that as 50p.
not a big deal, but double the data rate than it would be if it worked correctly, atomos and bmd says it's sonys fault for flagging it wrong (which is the case) and sony says it's a third party items and therefore not their problem.
>>
>>3315551
Right, this is purely speculative, but from what you've just written it sounds like the issue is the atomos.
I mean make sure you have the latest firmware installed on your camera first though.
I would play around with the atomos settings, look through every menu and google every setting you don't understand

sorry if this is a dumb noob question, but what is a typical feature film workflow?
log > edit > grade > audio mix > export ?
i'm particularly interested in the grading and mixing part
is the entire film exported from the NLE and then put into audition or whatever and the mix is added? or some other way entirely?
>>
>>3316223
I've been using aces for the last two years so I don't even look at the raw footage anymore for the most part, same goes with a project that can't use it for done reason: I'll bake a basic 'input grade' into my proxies so I don't have to edit looking at the log footage. Of course you can edit for days, weeks and months only looking at the flat as fuck log, but for me that's super hard and grading gets even harder because you get so used to it.
For audio I export omfs if I need any audio from the nle or have timecode synced material and then get the timeline along with the latest render of the edit into a daw, edit the audio till done and put a bounced audio file back into the nle. Now with all the Fairlight stuff I guess a lot of more basic editing and mixing could be done staying right inside resolve, but I'm much faster using protools and sequoia so I never got around to try a whole project in there just for fun
>>

omfs? is that like xml but for audio?

>fps judder

I stumpled upon the term 24p judder and after some research I'm now totally confused about Fps and display Hz.

I shot some footage in 29,97fps 50/s and viewing it on my 60Hz notebook display it stutters like hell, is this a problem between the fps and and hertz of the monitor? I think it looks better on the camera's display but that one is much much smaller, so hard to judge.

With frame interpolation to 30fps it looks smooth. 48fps looks kinda the same, 60fps has the soap opera effect.
which brings me to another point: What do you guys think is the best framerate for cinematography?
If 24p always judders, why even use it and not a slightly higher framerate that is smooth but yet not too smooth to creat the soap effect?

Can someone help me with Davinci Resolve?

I want to crop a 4k material down to a square that then sids in the middle of a 1920x1080 video. The square in the middle can not move or distort. The material however also needs to be stabilized at least for panning because of shaky hands.
How do I go about doing this in Resolve 15?

AND NOW I JUST REALIZED WHY THE MATERIAL WAS SHAKY DESPITE IBIS.
I used a 200mm vintage lens and didnt set the focal length settings from 50mm to 200mm

WHY AM I SO STUPID?????????
>>
>>3316397
put the footage on a 1080 timeline
stabilize it
use the sizing and blanking options (next to the 3d tab on the bottom center of the color page) to fit it into a square
>>
>>3316373
monitors, as lcd, oled or plasma or anything pixel based, are very insensitive to divergating input signal frequency and display frequency. this is because pixels don't lose their lucency any fast and the new picture is build before the old disappeared. (thus vsync is rather a problem.)
so I cannot belive you have a problem wirh 29.98fps on 60hz. a projector might. anything which is line based.

good thing that newer displays made input fps vs. display hz problems obsolete. so today fps is mire a matter taste than a question of standard or technology. dcp for example supports a variety from 24 to 96 fps.

fps wars were held here often enough. so don't ask but build your own opinion. I personally find anything > 25fps retarded. but this only could be an argument for you prefering >= 30fps. you dumpsterface.
>>
>>3316537
>so I cannot belive you have a problem wirh 29.98fps on 60hz.
... I misstyped. I meant 23,97fps

Is there any reason to get a 4K camera if I don't have a 4K monitor and I don't plan on rendering at 4K?

I got hired to shoot video for a wedding reception tomorrow. I have little to no experience shooting video and the client understands that. We set a price of $150-300 for about 2 hours of shooting, based on how good the results are. My brother will be there as a photographer (he's decent, he actually got me into photography).

Anyone got advice?
I've done research on video shooting and practiced with my Roxant Pro camera stabilizer. I know good audio is important. I've got spare memory cards, and spare batteries for my phone, camera, shotgun mic, video lights, flashes, and flash triggers.

My plan is to
1. get there at least 30 minutes early
Sign a contract with client.
2. get establishing shots of the setting
4. set up a portrait booth with my brother (flashes, flash stands, shoot through unbrellas, maybe a background), distribute business cards when I'm not doing anything else
5.communicate with the client and get a shot of the bride/groom arriving
6.Shots of the people candid
7.shots of people addressing the crowd
8.video of people doing stuff (dancing?)
9.Closing shots, focusing on the couple.
10. Leave
11.Back up photos/videos/audio ASAP, both physically and on cloud
12.Edit/color grade/color correct/ add music/
13. Send to client
14.???
15.Profit!

Any holes in my plan?
Any advice?

We've all been there. If you're like me, you get this email at least twice a month. But don't fret, every rejection is just one rejection closer to being accepted. I say this having only just started to have my films get accepted (and I still get more rejections than acceptances).
Blind submitting is stacked against you in every conceivable way if it makes you feel any better
>>
>>3316952
It's more /technical aspects of filmmaking focusing on cameras/ general. But people love talking about lighting and sound too. Very little chatter about composition.
But yeah, I write and direct. Several people do. But personally I don't like the idea of posting my shit on 4chan.
>>
>>3316951
My guess is that the poster got hired from a friend who wanted to save money on the cost of videotaping the wedding or because his brother who is the wedding photographer demanded that they hire the poster so he could help his brother become an established wedding photographer.

tl;dr I know this happens because friends of mine asked me to video tape weddings and stuff for them just because they saw me running around and playing with a camcorder.
>>
>>3316952
I write screen plays. I got involved in filming just because I couldn’t find anybody willing to videotape the weirder stuff I was writing.
>>
>>3316951
doesn't really sound like it's his fault. sounds more the like the moron is the client who's just assuming someone good at photo shit must also be able to handle video just fine.

and for that miniscule amount of money, they clearly don't care. an actual experienced videographer would be charging thousands for this amount of work
>>
>>3316968
I just don't get what I'm doing wrong
I am quite sure it's not the film, I've had it critiqued tons by people who know film and who I trust to honestly shit on me if it's shit, so maybe I'm not doing the submission part right? Maybe I don't write a nice synopsis,, or cover letter, or submit too late? idk
>>
>>3316973
Just make sure it fits with the theme of the festival. It royally sucks that they won’t tell you why it was rejected so you could a.) fix it, or b.) submit it somewhere else if it was not right for the festival.
>>
>>3316973
are any of those tons of people actually even decent at film themselves? have any of them had their shit accepted to festivals? if they have, why are they not using that perpetual in to help you out?

there is nothing stopping you from asking for notes from festivals, some will tell you exactly why you weren't accepted.

I actually have no connection to the client. I put up a Craigslist ad for photography and I also put that I would shoot event videos for free, so I could gain experience. Since the client wanted photos too, I decided to charge for that since I'm actually half-decent at that.

oh c'mon. don't think you'd be the only one on planet. even small festivals get a shitton of submissions. like hundrets over hundrets. of course nobody takes the time to send any other than standard rejections. furthermore they wouldn't dare to put a statement since people are nutheads and would start discussing, publishing their feedback or even try to sue them. business is crazy. and if you admit it or not, you are part of the mass of crazy autists who want to be the next von trier.
on the other side every even halt decent festival is corrupt to no end. with that base of submissions, why shouldn't gatekeepers have one criteria more than just the quality of the film? and right that criteria is either money or attention. it's easy like that. I experienced this even on my first quite small festival, which still seemed to be big enough to get paid - in this case not for being shown but getting the award. business is crazy.
and to all of you who still think this is conpsiracy theory .. ehm .. lol
>>
>>3317039
Please, one look at most festivals and it's easy to see that quality is clearly not the main criteria, and there are definitely other factors at play
Not saying that's necessarily the case here, but overall it's definitely a thing

your're coming off as pretty bitter and talking out your ass there, champ.

if you aren't a defensive asshat in the reply, occasionally a festival will give you some feedback on why your film didn't make the cut. they're not gonna hand out some lengthy critique, but they will give you a reason why you weren't selected.
>>
>>3317189
"It fitted not exactly our programme's strategy."

"The focus of our selection was this year more on XYZ"

"We had several similar submissions for this category and had to decide for someone else."

"The impression and feel of the movie is too experimental."

"We couldn't see the artistic benefit for our visitors."

"Unfortunately we couldn't agree to thr vision of you film."

If you think stuff like this is actual feedback then yeah .. go ahead and slurp some spit.

Anon don’t blindly submit your film to many festivals, find a festival that fits with the theme or content of your film and submit to that festival.

Or better yet fix your film in post to work with the festival you plan on submitting your film to.

Also look at the rules of the festival, and make sure your film doesn’t break any of the rules.

Or just release the film to your community tv station or an online streaming service if it is your first film, and get the feedback of the masses.

I’ve only submitted documentary films, I’m not sure if it is different for submitting feature films, but with documentary films they are many rules about both the content of the documentary and the length that need to be followed to the letter if you want the festival to even look at it let alone air it, they do this to keep cucks who want to be the next Michael Moore from submitting shitty propaganda pieces to the festival under the guise of a documentary film.

Not really a video at all. It's a clip. You basically just have some b-roll and that's it. 6 minutes of B-roll.

I don't think I'm ever going to get my head around mounts.

I'm getting an A7sii (FE mount) and I'm looking at buying some vintage lenses for it, with the understanding that adaptors exist - if I get, say, a M42 to E mount adaptor, is that going to work on my FE body?

Is there going to be vignetting/cropping? Is that actually something to worry about?

e mount is e mount and if the lens covers full frame then there will be no vignetting

By keeping the camera steady. A shaky camera will make any footage look like it’s for a vlog and not for the cinema. Unless it’s found footage for a horror or action flick, then shaky footage might work, but you have to have a good reason for shaky footage. Not being able to afford a tripod or other stabilization unit is not a good reason.

No matter what you use, public domain or cc or copy left, you are probably going to have to give credit to the creator of the music. I doubt you’d be able to claim you made something that you just found online and decided to use because you were legally able to use.

At the minimum you’d need to but the name of the song in the credits, and probably also the name of the people who made the song.

I always add artist's name, song name and the license type under which the song is licensed. Abstain from links as they are a little bit too messy to have in a video.

I'll give you a serious answer because I'm in your situation and I'm about to have to do what I'm going to tell you to do.

You NEED to network. I'm a massively socially anxious sperg, but I'm actively looking online for filmmaking clubs, student films to work on, indie movie nights... anywhere I can find like-minded people. I'm from a small town so it's tough going but I've got a few leads.

I memed myself into buying a ton of gear for a failed YouTube channel and like you, I'm alone and still want to create. You need other people. Filmmaking on your own is just not going to happen.

The Pocket 4K with MFT lenses will be a good run and gun camera.
>>3322447
There's no sample footage from the Pocket 4K yet.

>>3322469
The stills on their website are a lie?
>>
>>3322447
>Yeah, the fact it loses to a gh5 in low light
It will definitely outperform the gh5 in low light
>>3322369
>how likely is the sensor to struggle in low light
Not very. It has dual native iso so it should be very similar to the gh5s in that regard
>>
I'm a film student and I've shot on the GH4 for the past 2 years. It's served me well, but the shitty low-light capabilities are driving me crazy considering I'm more of a night-owl than anything. Shit's basically useless during winter. I'm looking to buy a new camera come september/october, partially because I want to wait for the BMPCC4K to come out or atleast some testfootage to be shown. I do alot of photography too and I'm looking to build a portret portfolio too, so ideally the device would do both considered taking two devices with you constantly would be a goddamn hassle, but at the same time I don't want to miss those magical little organic moments for both disciplines.

So basically, it's GH5S vs. A7III vs. BMPCC4K.

I have an Olympus 12-40 F2.8, a few m4/3 primes, a zhongyi lens turbo II with a whole range of assorted vintage lenses, mostly m42. Selling my GH4 either way, but depending on choice I could re-use or sell a bunch of these. I'm having a really hard time deciding on this. The incredible low-light and professional photography of the A7III is tempting as fuck, but I'm afraid the video images will be dated as fuck after 1-2 years.

>>3322404
people think that when the bmpcc4k comes out there's going to be a budget option, but once you rig that thing out it's going to be expensive, just like the pocket camera, production camera and studio camera are now.
>>
>>3322534
Same poster.

Leaning towards an A7III, with 35mm and 50mm samyang cine primes, with the sony 85mm f1.8 to be able to use the autofocus during portrait shoots. I'd sell my GH4 and m4/3 lenses, the vintage lenses arguably all work better on a full frame anyways, I already have a dumb novoflex adapter for canon EF to Sony E too, due to a metabones adapter breaking the day before I was to recieve it to use on an a7sii I was lending.

I'm just worried the video quality won't keep up for the coming years. Do you guys think the film camera market is gravitating towards full frame sensors? I keep hearing it at my school, but is it just a meme? M43 sensors seem to be improving aswell, I'd feel like an idiot to sell all my lenses, only to end up switching back a few years later.
>>
>>3322540
Every camera's expensive once you rig it out.
You shouldn't be using your camera's mic for anything other than a scratch track anyway, but the bmp4k is superior to most other cameras (assuming they aren't lying about its features) in that aspect. Especially for its price.
Every hands-on report has said the lcd is brilliant now.
The only features it lacks compared to a non-cine camera is auto-focus. But since every non-canon camera has shit autofocus anyway, I don't think this will be much of a miss,

The only other thing it theoretically lacks is internal stabilisation. But since it's about a thousand bucks cheaper than an a7iii or a gh5, you can use that thousand bucks to buy a dji ronan which will do you much better than internal stabilisation ever will
>>
>>3322549
Every pro cinematographer ever has been using s35 for decades, if you can't do a good job without FF it's nobody's fault but yours.
A professional look depends on so much more than your sensor size that it's insane. Your camera is the last thing you should be worrying about.

Hi guys, I need some help.
I have been asked to film a dancing event that will be held in a Casino hall (pic related).

I will have to film mainly people dancing on stage but occasionally also people attending the event, (dancing where the tables are in pic related).
I have zero video skills and I am worried because from the pictures I got the hall looks like quite dark (typical casino lighting).
My equipment is very basic, I have a canon t6i with kit lens, and a decent tripod with fluid head (Magnus VT 4000).

My questions: what settings should I put on the camera to have good results with poor light?
Where should I situate myself? In a corner close to the stage or in the middle at the back?
Any other suggestion?
Thanks!

Hey guys, made a short video from a trip last week

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoAJ3Z3EJ-Y

could I get some feedback on this? Some thoughts I had on it myself:
>should I have used some better transitions between shots? It seemed like the beat cut pretty quickly so just changing to the next clip seemed fine
>I'm not good at color grading so I just used some LUTs. Anything I could have done better?
>how is the movement within the clips?
>anything else?

thanks!
>>
>>3322810
Get a more dynamic grade, looks a bit plain
Some of the transitions and drone-dolly-out to the beat drop are anticlimactic
idk if you're using a stabiliser or not but it looks pretty wobbly at times, sort it out

beautiful place though, haven't been there in a decade, consider me jealous

also the music is fucking gay
>>
>>3322810
It's sad that I knew exactly the kind of video this would be before I opened it, down to the fast-slow mo cuts to the beat, the transition presets everyone downloads, the cheesy electronic music everyone uses...

Everyone seems to make videos in this style and imo it's starting to become really dated. It's lowest common denominator editing with no original thought whatsoever.

Nice location tho.
>>
>>3322813
>Get a more dynamic grade, looks a bit plain
sorry, pretty new to video editing, could you explain what you mean with that? More contrast? more popping colors?
>idk if you're using a stabiliser or not but it looks pretty wobbly at times, sort it out
I'm not, looking to get a Gimbal possibly (I'm using a Canon 6D + 24-105 f/4) but I haven't really found something suitable yet. Any recommendations?
>beautiful place though, haven't been there in a decade, consider me jealous
was my first time even tho it's just a 4 hour bus ride from where I live. definitely planning on going again
>also the music is fucking gay
agree, not something of my personal taste. thought it would fit with most people's tastes tho
>>
>>3322820
Yeah up the contrast a bit and make colours pop a bit more
Don't know anything about stabilisers, sorry
Don't make stuff for most people's tastes, make it for yourself. Like this guy
>>3322816 said, this shit is tired, expired and overdone to death
Innovate a bit, experiment a bit.
>>
>>3322604
I know this, I've been managing just fine with a GH4 for a while now. The issue is wether I'd have to spend more money on lenses again, you pretentious idiot. I'm talking about markettrends here, don't be daft and pretend that doesn't influence which camera you'll want to use in a few years.
>>
>>3322794
If you have to film the whole event, then better get an additional camera to have a stationary shot of the audience. Your main camera should be at a high enough position so that the audience doesn't block the stage when someone gets off their chair.

As it's important to have the camera receive as much light as possible, check if you don't get lower exposure when zoomed in, some lenses cannot maintain aperture through the whole zoom range, reducing the amount of light the sensor receives. Consider placing the main camera closer to the stage if that's the case.

If you do get a second camera, place it next to yourself, so you can take additional shots while the main camera is rolling. Standing in the middle of the hall, you can shoot people behind you, whereas standing at the far end, you can only really take a wide shot of the whole room.

Make sure to expose correctly, even if you do get noise. If you need additional ISO ramp it up. Some of it can be cleaned in post. Underexposing will result in banding, and especially nasty one with grain.

You can probably shoot guests as they are entering the hall and taking seat, run about the hall before the show starts. There will easily be 10 minutes for that.

Above all make sure someone is recording the audio, you really don't want the audio from a camera microphone unless it's some ambience, like clapping or some hall echo to mix together.
>>
>>3316952
>Any actual Writers
I'm trying
>>
>>3322972
Thank you fren!
So I'll keep the lens the most zoomed out as possible (18mm) in order to keep the aperture at the maximum (f3.5) and get more light.
I made some attempts at home and I see that the ISO goes easily to 6400... I'll follow your suggestion anyway and try maintain a correct exposure. I guess I can remove some noise with Premiere Pro (never tried before).
I don't have a second camera, I'll try with my phone to get some additional footage...

Should I get the Sony cx675 to shoot pov/amature porn shoots with my gf? Or just save a little money and get a yi or gopro?

I'm sure I'm going to get hate for this question, but whatever. Also, any general porn filming advice would be nice.
>>
>>3323581
Get a cinema camera so you can show that porn on the big screen. Only 2 pieces of advice: 1) good lighting, 2) lots of pussy shots because nobody wants to see a cock
>>
>>3323581

This:
>>3323725


4k pussy shots or don't bother.
>>
>>3322810
Love it, you made more stuff than 90% of depressed losers of this thread
>>
>>3322915
>market trends
In that case no, the recent pro cameras coming out with large sensors has no bearing on you.
>>
>>3323725
>>3323767

So I should focus on trying to get 4k at 30fps instead of 1080p at 60fps?
>>
>>3323991
Use 60fps for inserting objects into the pussy so you can show the pussy being violated in slo-mo and 4K 30fps for money shots of the pussy>
>>
>>3324008
show some footage
>>
>>3323581
>>3323991
I just want to chime in here and say that 60fps porn is absolutely amazing whereas most casual porn connoisseurs don't have 4k monitors
>>
>>3324224
Thanks, I'll probably get the Sony cx675 then.
>>
>>3324224
But 4k porn would look fucking awesome on the silver screen. What’s your take on 120fps or higher porn shots.
>>
>>3315547
try something as turning off auto hdmi res, or hdmi control, cec, bravia link or whatevs is called on sony. On my pany gh3 i had to turn off viera link b4 setting anything hdmi related

Well I don't know if it goes here but I've been trying to emulate some of that Takashi Ito techniques and bumped into that stereoscopic 3D thing. Spent the day making these gifs. I think I'm going to try and make these but in the middle of a busy street downtown or something like that. Should be cool, right?

3/3 that is not my middle finger. I used that frame to point to the previous picture for organization purposes and it ended up like that Ito movie and because I'm a hack I just thought it looked cool to copy him so I left it there.

This isn't strictly /vid/ related but I can't be assed to find the right thread
>be editing film for ages, getting frustrated at not doing much else
>decide to go into town to do some street photography and force myself to meet some new people
>come across a girl with purple hair who seems hot
>get closer and her face is pretty average but still attractive
>she lets me take her picture, I notice she's a bit awkward and she says she doesn't normally like taking photos
>okay whatever
>get her instagram afterwards and move on
>check it just now, has a few photos of pretty standard stuff mainly selfies where she looks a bit awkward
>suddenly realise one of them has over 1000 likes
>check her followers
>almost 100k
Jesus christ, what? For the record I am somewhat sociable and have a lot of girls on insta that I know. The only one I think who has more followers than her (or anything close) is literally a professional model who posts proper professional photos in interesting places. Can someone explain?
>>
>>3324260
>What’s your take on 120fps or higher porn shots.
I've genuinely never seen porn with a framerate that high. It seems unnecessary since most computer monitors' refresh rate is like 60hz anyway (or I'm pretty sure mine is at least)
>>
I'm just doing videos for fun and they're pretty low quality but I personally like how they turn out in the end so
I'd be interested how skilled and professionals think about my editing/timing etc. I'd apreciate feedback from you guys :)

Instagram is a cesspit.
Chicks that just post the same stupid duckface get genuinely 20-50 likes on their worst days. I am networking like crazy and still don't get any decent follower count or likes. I even follow all the rules from social media guides: regular updates, constant stream of content, hashtags, linking people, etc.

IG is shit. Only use it as a publicly visible space for your work, not an actual measurement for the quality of your work

absolute audio noob here, and i need to do a mix for a film
where do i begin, where do i learn about this
i googled some guides but they already presuppose tons of stuff like that i would know what bitrate im supposed to be walking in, technical terminologies, etc
>>
>>3325316
What audiowork are we talking about?
Aligning audiotracks to videotracks? Or just putting audiotracks together? Creating soundeffects or using stock ones?
Are we talking about putting music behind voiceover? cutting out outtakes from an audiostrip?
Bitrate of 192kbps is fine, upper of 48kHz is fine.
If it is just pure audio with no video, download audacity. Otherwise, pirate adobe premiere and audition or get DaVinciResolve (it has fairlight audio editor built in)

What's the go-to <300€ audio recorder nowadays?
>>
>>3325711
that price you unfortunately have to go with zoom. the cheap tascam (in the pic) lack a decent battery and have a cheap feel. but there are also some Roland, Olympus and Marantz (protip) field recorders in that price range.
