Great to see you brother!!! I miss "seeing" you. We should be two days into NAB my now in Las Vegas. So strange right? 

I know! The flights are still up on my calendar 😶

Going to rock the same vibe by piping some oxygen into the house, throwing all clocks away and closing the windows

Hey all. Isaac Svensson from Long Beach, California.
I expected way more folk to be in SoCal! But I dig it.
I am the CEO of a small video-first marketing and production agency here. I ended up as a jack of all trades which I suggest no one else do unless you like instant ramen and having your couches up against your walls.
I also helped start a new radio station out here: KLBP. That was an interesting exercise as well.

Y'all better believe this will be my new home for question-asking and dialog!

Hey everyone! I'm a filmmaker and freelance DOP based in the UK (in Birmingham)

I run a small Video Production Agency where we create mainly branded content/commercial/corporate work: www.weareforward.uk as well as being a freelance DOP shooting mostly the same kind of stuff, as well as some feature doc and narrative work: www.tommartindop.com

Super excited that you guys have put the effort in to launch this; if the standard of conversation here is as good as the articles we'll be onto a winner (especially as we've all got lots more time on our hands all of a sudden)

Here's my latest short film to give you an idea of the sort of stuff I make. Looking forward to chatting with you all soon!

Howdy,

It’s one of the few websites I check regularly and I feel like I know many of the regular authors even though I’ve never met any of y’all!

 

I’m a Field Producer and Camera Op for non-fiction docu-reality (?) TV. Think Discovery Channel and Nat Geo. Seem to mostly get hired for Alaskan shows and have worked on a bunch of those. I’m currently making a YouTube series with my wife about our small farm which has been a fun project for us in our downtime.

I look forward to participating in the NewsShooter community!

Hi Tom,

Nice to see other UK based filmakers/DOP's here. I'm in Cambridge myself.

Really enjoyed your Nial Adams film. I've made a number of films about artists too and always enjoy seeing how other DOP's approach the subject.

Hi all! 

I'm Michael, Swedish DP. Working with commercials, documentary, narrative, in traditional 2D but also stereo 3D and in 360/VR. I started my career in photojournalism in the analogue times, dipped my hands in photochemical liquids, spent a couple of years in post-production and colour grading too. Specialised in Stereoscopic 3D (production and post) and 360/VR. I have lived in Spain, Czech Republic, Singapore and United Kingdom over the course of my career and I'm multilingual (English, Swedish, Spanish, Polish). 

I'm an owner-operator, with one foot in creative experimentation and the other in a lot of technical knowledge. Run my own business and I'm a partner in an advertising agency - in addition to joining a lot of projects with colleagues in the business (mostly in Europe + Southeast Asia).

I look forward to share experiences, help anywhere I can and hear your stories too! 

Cheers!

Hi Adrian, 

Thanks for taking the time to watch the film. I watched yours - interesting guy and fascinating to see the similarities and differences in approach by both the artists who are the subjects of the films, and the filmmakers who have captured their stories. Michael's work is quite similar in a lot of ways to Nial's - wonder if they know each other as Nial is based in Norfolk. 

I used to be Norwich based before my move to Birmingham and still work a lot in Cambridge and East Anglia - small world!

    • According to Panasonic the most common problem is that the camera shuts down by itself. Has anyone had that problem?
    • On further reflection what I have in mind isn't going to work anyway over a long period of time without proper sync even an external recording from the Z6 is going to drift relative to a separate audio recording. As far as I can tell there's no way to deal with this without a camera with a genlock input. The Ninja-V with the AtomX sync can record timecode but doesn't retime the input and only uses the genlock also available via the sync accessory for playback. There also doesn't seem to easily be such a thing as a retiming HDMI to SDI converter with REF IN as far as I can find. The audio side of things is easier as even on a relative cheap device like a Sound Devices Mix Pre 10 II it's possible to send word clock in to the BNC input and timecode to the aux input from a device such as a Ultrasync One. I guess the problem is simply too niche as it only crops up in broadcast where everything is expensive or long recordings of things like concerts with separate audio.
    • It is a great camera. I actually bought the S1 in preference to the S5 as I wanted the more solid build, plus full sized HDMI and top screen display. One of the autofocus features I use the most is the tap to focus (can't remember exactly what is called). I recently filmed in a factory using a crane, so had my phone running Lumix sync via WiFi, and then was able to set a focus box and tap on my phone screen to set the focus area.  It worked flawlessly, plus the ability to also remotely set iso, white balance, shutter speed and aperture was amazing. The fact it takes fantastic photos is a bonus too.  I do agree with you about the limited lens options. However their quality is stunning, and if you're going to stick with the system then the investment makes sense. I hope you get the opportunity to do some travel videography 👍 and thanks for taking the time to write up your experiences.
    • Funny you mention the monopod - I use one on the base of my S1 with the stabilisation turned on and get very nice results. I have a Ronin S, but to be honest I still prefer the vest system I mistakenly sold after believing all the hype about gimbals. I think you're right in the direction of adding mass to the rig, particularly when it's offset, and if you can couple this with a camera with decent stabilisation the results are excellent and with almost zero setup. I do ninja walk though... I also would be interested if anyone has an alternative solution.
