What is this Thing: Camera

Notes: If you have a lot of money to spend on camera equipment, you might want to look into the new Arri Mini. It’s only around 40K. Just in case you’re interested. 😉

Things Type: Sekonic C-700
Notes: I need one of these to take my onset lighting to the next level. I have a iPhone application for my light and color metering, which does pretty good. But, I think I need a dedicated tool, when I can afford it.

Music Video of The Week

What is this Thing: Herschel’s MV Pick of the Week
Things Type: Music Video
Notes: This weeks MV of the week is a concept/performance video that I was attracted to because of the cinematography. The Sepia/Black and White and Color Grading all seemed to melt together in a unique coalesce of music and images that seem to work. I wasn’t really hot about the ending though. But sometimes it’s hard to get out of a music video concept cleanly.image
