Sorry about that but I just found out that it is supposed to snow in Philly on saturday. Excited yes. Do I think it will happen? No. The frost giants would not be that kind to me.
Been quite busy doing DIT things for a week. Now switching over to start doing a lot of small little editing machines. A few things. 1. Don't try and compress at size RED Epic footage on a laptop that is four years old.
I was able to get my hands on some RED EPIC footage. Nothing fancy and nothing even worth showing. I did shoot the footage which was a lot of fun. The whole touch screen way that the epic works is strange in a lot of ways it feels like a toy even though it's one of the top 5 cameras out there at the moment. Mainly just got the footage to learn how to DIT the footage. Still need to work on figuring out how work with the 1st light color correcting. Just never know who might be on the other side when the phone rings.
That is really a big thing with freelance for film. I really never know what sort of job I am going to get when someone calls me for a gig. Even when it comes to applying for gigs I don't know whats going to be posted on various websites I check out. I've been a PA, grip, electric, DIT, and editor so far just in this month ago. So thats why I grabbed the RED EPIC footage. I don't apply for gigs that big (Mainly because I don't have a DIT kit) but you know never know what sort of gig you could be asked to do.
So in closing I leave you with this.
