Camera Operations

Notes: It’s always good to hear what other people do on-set.

Equipment

What is this Thing: Field Monitor
 Link: https://www.smallhd.com/lp/502/
Notes: Looks like a good form factor for run-and-gun situations and it states it will support 3D LUTs. We’ll see what the price is when it comes out. image

Editing

What is this Thing: Using a Wacom Pen/Tablet for Editing
 Things Type: Equipment > Mouse Replacment

Notes: I know many artist who use these devices for creating drawings. I didn’t think of using them for actually editing and replacing the mouse. But now, I’m interested. I bet you’d have to commit to changing your approach to editing. The first couple of months would be slower until you got up to speed.

Music Video of The Week

What is this Thing: Herschel’s MV Pick of the Week
Things Type: Music Video
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnlsxmikiNY
Notes: This week’s music video comes from yours truly. I worked on the MV with my little girl and wife over the past couple months when we had some extra time. I didn’t spend a ton of time on it per se so it isn’t perfect. But, what I was trying to do was to have a fun project to work with my family on. Hope you like it.image
