The Story Unfolds. Canon’s Golden Ticket.

Cameras

I finally got my dirty little hands on the email invitation from Canon for the November 3rd announcement. This invite is only good for the 4th and 5th. I have been trying to get one of these since the first announcement and it was under my nose this entire time! I have not been able to gather any new information about the possible cameras that will be announced that day. I have heard that...Read More

Most noteably are 12fps continuous, dual Digic 5+ sensors, ISO 100-51,200, 30 minute video clips, timecode and improved audio. Canon has also added a new and improved “All-I and IPB compression. This looks to be one bad ass HDSLR.  The folks over at Canon are obviously listening, while...Read More

LOST IN THE CROWD

@MNS1974

Crowdfunding, if you didn’t know, is the art of gathering large numbers of micro-payments to fund a project. It can apply to anything. Charities are crowd-funded. Televised telethons, same thing. In the UK the BBC is crowdfunded by the taxpayer through the TV license. In recent years websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have popularised the method in the filmmaking community. I’ve successfully crowdfunded a production, Jared is in the middle of a campaign as...Read More
