    Looking for a camera...

    Where is a used EX1 for 3800 dollars that's not a scam or gray market? Because I'd by that right now! Also, you have the HMC-150 or 40, or the Canon A1 both which are moderately priced.

    Looking for a camera...

    Panasonic DVX 100a or b or Canon XL2 My reccomendation: DVX has better color, blows up well (November, Lonesome Jim, Iraq in Fragments-the most beautiful blow up to date), and is, imho, the very best SD 24p camera. I hate Sony cameras but that is just my opinion. A camera is a tool, get the...

    Looking for a camera...

    Eh, why are you blowing it up? Do you already have distribution in place. Is there any reason in particular that you are going the tape route? Are you adversed to Panasonic or JVC? Is there alot of motion in your story? What is your final output medium or your distribution plan? Just asking so...

    Terrified?

    I am attempting to be careful with my words so please bear with me. BenB- First of all, I am not bashing you. You attempted to separate yourself from me and my mad ranting by putting the word us in quotation marks. I commented on this because a lot of informed filmmakers feel like me but do...

    Terrified?

    On October 15, 2005, MTV Networks, a division of Viacom (which also holds BET, Comedy Central, MTV, VH1, CMT and Nickelodeon) bought ifilm, a viral video and short film site founded by an independent filmmaker as a video collective. Now it is Spike.com powered by ifilm, and not worth the...

    best Camera for $5000

    No, no, no, The H1 is like 9,000 dollars... I think you mean the A1! Any cheaper on the H1 (lower than 7-10,000 USD) is a gray market scam!

    DVX-100?

    Quite frankly the best SD solution on the market; it has it's fair share of problems but I have use about 4 different cameras, including the venerable XL2, but nothing has worked for me like the DVX100, but I am just one person...

    consistent filmmakers

    The only one off of your list I would agree with is Clint. Past that I don't think that any director is consistently anything... If they were then we would have no chance

    Terrified?

    I fervently agree, BenB, sorry for the rhyme, but that is the crux of the argument. Hollywood is encroaching on our digital domain. They are oozing into our distribution markets and the web is no longer our sanctuary. The invasion is as virulent and rude as the assault on Rosewood, the...

    Timur Bekmambetov

    Is anyone else captivated by his images? He tells a luke warm story, tepid at best, but his scenes are imaginative and pretty cool. My question is what would be necessary to produce similar results. I mean, what particular programs would be in play for such effects. I am starting to think...

    Terrified?

    Holy Crap! After a cursory glance at the fees, $10,000 up to $25,000 advance plus royalties, I have to say wow. This only serves to strengthen the argument. My question to you all is, what are we going to do now?

    Terrified?

    How can you say that you have no intentions of making money through independent filmmaking right now? Now is the time. I run across this as a musician. When people refuse payment, or create works and say that they are not interested in payment, or take less money than they are worth, that...

    Terrified?

    But what about our distribution methods? The world is closing due to the impact and power of the internet. So many of us can get work to various countries and peoples all over the world; but honestly, can you break through to the same audience when the Hollywood machine comes rolling through...

    I absolutely agree, and I don't think that enough of us are taking this threat seriously.

    Terrified?

    Now that the WGA strike is closing and deals are being made, is anyone else afraid about what this is going to mean for independents using the internet? I mean now Hollywood is getting into our underground... it's the same thing that happened in music. Independent filmmakers are in grave...
