Cine Gear Expo 2011 Camera Prep And Sneak Peek At The Paramount Backlot.

Cine Gear 2011

Here is a little sneak peak at the back lot of Paramount prior to the Cine Gear Expo 2011. We were able to grab a golf cart from one of our friends at the back lot and jetted around while they were setting up. We decided to grab the Glidecam HD 2000 for this tracking shot from the back of the golf cart. The prep went down pretty quickly. We decided to only bring...Read More


Just the Cut

No one in this business is going to help you be heard or hold your hand along the way. As a fairly fresh guy on the scene I was faced with the daunting task of how I let people know about me.

Chris Collins / Quick Takes

By: Chris Collins As a one-man-band DP or camera assistant it is extremely important to be ready for anything. A director may ask to place the camera in an odd overhead shot or you may need to rig a small LED light where the stand would be in frame. This cardellini-ballmount adapter will allow you to rig anything with a 1/4-20 thread (monitors, small lights, cameras) onto virtually anything. I have used this cardellini...Read More

Field of Gold: Grow as you Go

Cameras / Production

By: Chris Collins Passion projects… they’re demanding, they don’t pay well, they go on forever, and they yield the greatest rewards a filmmaker can reap. Perhaps the most demanding type of passion project is the feature documentary. Mike Sullivan a.k.a. Sully and Hugh Lawson just began post-production on theirs entitled Field of Gold.
