I had not heard much about Libec gear until close to NAB. I’m very interested in seeing their gear here at the show. One of their new offerings is the Libec ALLEX System. This is a Tripod/Head/Slider kit that makes using a tripod and slider together or separately a breeze. Also take note of how the camera is removed from the tripod. Thats HOT! The ALLEX System will be available in Augest of this year. Check out the video and details below.
We all have had slow spells in our field of work. For me, winter is a rough time. Businesses slow down and when it is as cold as it has been in Chicago, there is nothing exciting about filming outdoors. Over the past 5 years, I’ve found a couple ways to boost my income when work is slow. Here are my 8 tips on how to make money when work is slow.
Found this very moving film on Vimeo and had to share it. This is a great example of how narration can add to your film without making it feel like an afterthought. So many people add narration to a film but neglect all other sound. This film brings it all together.
I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on the GH4 when it is available. In the meantime, join me in being jealous of The Camera Store and their unit.
GH4 Video Look
This just might be the camera that sways me away from the C100. I won’t know until I actually get to use the camera and get some footage. I was talking with Tim Whalen (a filmmaker here in Chicago) and he made a comment about the GH4 looking video and I think he makes a good point. The footage in this review definitely isn’t the most beautiful thing I’ve seen from a camera, although some of that is because of the lighting in my opinion. We shall see.
I’ve had a lot of time with the Wooden Camera A-Box and I have really enjoyed using it. It not only works well, but it looks darn good doing it. Trust me when I say there isn’t a lot of elegant audio gear out there. If you’re looking for a small, stylish way to run your XLRs to 1/8″ this is the tool for you.
