  • WHAT DO I COST? « Wide Open Camera
    is unfortunately I keep hearing stories of people hiring the wrong person for the job simply because they had the kit and getting badly burned as a result There is no substitute for experience knowing how to cost a job seeing problems before they occur allowing enough time finding solutions quickly managing clients not being a dick about ownership all of this stuff Production is at its heart a great big puzzle and problem solving is its single greatest skillset Lack of experience can be highly destructive on set If you want proof then go do a 48hr film challenge The problem is now that it s very difficult for skilled people to charge what they re worth I ve had to work very hard to make myself more valuable by adding a multi skill approach and by adding consultancy to my resumé with work for brands in content marketing and that s enabled me to put a premium on the services I offer It s vitally important that you work out what premium you can lay claim to whether as a specialist in one particular form of production or as a proper multi eventer I consider myself a very good director an excellent editor a decent motion graphics artist and a very good cameraman and I ve worked hard to be as good as possible at all of those disciplines Add in producing voiceovers journalism and social media marketing skills and you ve got a very good mix So I m experience very experienced I ve done a disproportionate amount of work for my age because I set up my own production company and worked like a total maniac taking on every job that came our way and taking on senior positions in high pressure situations We made it stick and we made lots of mistakes but my CV and my reel are super solid Here s what I charge Camera kit 250 a day flat rate I do not negotiate It s all or nothing You can t afford it you don t get it I m not going to shoot without my entire kit so deal with it Cameraman rate 300 I know this kit inside and out I shoot like a director and I shoot like an editor Deal with it Editing at least 300 a day rising to 350 depending on job Motion graphics at least 350 a day Directing For music videos 1250 or 10 of budget whichever is higher For corporate at least 500 a day though more like 1 000 So that s it Like I say to my clients I m actually good value Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography He just happened to be in

    Unfortunately no one was available I ended up bringing two tripods two 5D s and every lens I have I used a Zoom H4n for audio and two Litepanels 1 x 1 LED s for the interview It was a crazy ass shoot Most of the BTS shots were hand held with a Canon 5D MK II and Canon 70 200mm IS zoom lens It is always a little strange showing up and meeting everyone the day of the job Tiffany Napper the producer from Yamaha Entertainment Group and the still photographer Rob Shanahan were very cool and made me feel right at home Greyson Chance is a hugely talented artist I cannot thank everyone enough for letting me be a part of this very cool project Check out the other videos that Ben shot for Yamaha All Access 360 here Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography He just happened to be in the right place at the right time Related Posts BMPCC Quick Take EVS Online Has One Posted on 30 August 2013 Heading to CES with Dan Chung for The Guardian UK Posted on 04 January 2011 How To Mark An Actor For Camera Posted on 14 January 2013 Mike Sutton AKA MNS1974 Joins The WOC Crew Posted on 04 April 2012 Quick Take Video Aviator Travel Jib From Nice Industries Posted on 28 February 2013 Redrock Micro Announces Release Date For Micro Remote Follow Focus System Posted on 13 June 2011 http www jonnykauf com Jonnykauf nice work Sponsors Projects New Product

  • In case you missed it: 5DtoRGB v1.5 [UPDATED] « Wide Open Camera
    effects compositing programs like After Effects or Nuke work with RGB color not YCbCr which is common in HDSLRs and so a YCbCr to RGB conversion must be performed by either QuickTime or your compositing program before anything useful can be done The big problem is that you have to trust your NLE or compositing app to do a good job of performing this YCbCr to RGB conversion Many programs use QuickTime internally to perform YCbCr to RGB conversion which according to our testing does only a mediocre job I suspect this due to a performance compromise in that well enough is suitable for most users remember QuickTime is designed for real time playback of those 1080p movie trailers as well This is probably OK for general use but unacceptable when trying to maximize the quality of highly compressed H 264 footage for visual effects work green screen compositing or film outs To add insult to injury QuickTime adds noise to its H 264 output and so does any program that uses QuickTime to decompress H 264 in what looks like an attempt to cover up H 264 compression artifacts And guess what There s no way to disable this You re stuck with it if you ve converted your footage with Final Cut Pro Adobe After Effects MPEG Streamclip or Canon s Movie Plugin E1 for Final Cut Pro all of them use QuickTime to decompress H 264 For an example of the result of this is click here via Rarevision 5DtoRGB s algorithm takes your HDSLR footage from the YCbCr color model and interpolates the chroma subsampling in the footage and transcodes it to a RGB color model This new file will play nicely with any NLE compositing software or color correction suite For more of the features of 5DtoRGB please check out the short video above and then head over to the download site from Rarevision and pick up the program and try it out for your post workflow Happy Shooting Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography He just happened to be in the right place at the right time Related Posts The Future Of Digital Cinema Posted on 09 April 2012 Cine Gear 2011 Jon Miller of Hive Lighting Posted on 06 June 2011 NAB 2011 Jared Abrams Philip Bloom Posted on 13 April 2011 NAB 2012 Codex Vault Posted on 25 April 2012 The 90 Minute Lunch Short Film Behind the Scenes Posted on 07 December 2010 Schneider 399 Mattebox NAB2012 Posted on 17 April 2012 Pingback Top quality DSLR Plugin 5DtoRGB Goes Version 1 5 for Both Mac and Windows NoFilmSchool aombk i dont get it i mean well as far as speed is concerned some editors need intermediate

  • BEATBOX BAR CRAWL: MAKING IT « Wide Open Camera
    your bag you at least have a chance Shooting wide open on a 5D at f1 2 gives you other problems of course not least of which is focus and you just have to accept that you re going to be hunting a lot It s not got a particularly close focus on it either and animated pumped up musicians tend to crowd the lens which means they re just soft and mushy I shot the last club at 2500 ISO as well but turning to our old friend the Neat Video noise reduction plugin takes the edge off enough to make it very acceptable for Vimeo The original shot in the final club The graded final shot in the club I cut the 18min version in a day then smashed together another 35 mins of extra bits and pieces for the guys to use as marketing material It s a sign of the way we do things now that we think in terms of granular content not feature content It s much more valuable to have ten pieces of bite size content than one super polished one that is watched once then forgotten The challenge of course is to make every bit of work polished and excellent We talk a lot about the triangle fast cheap good You can only have two Well I don t believe in that But you can judge that for yourselves Grade in an hour or so without using Magic Bullet just 3 way color corrector in Final Cut trying to get away from the uber crunchy DSLR look but still make it juicy and nice to watch Yes I used 2 35 1 and that s a cheap trick but so what Also if you read my MTV editing tricks post you ll notice quite a few of them in here Music content demands it Just the way it is Quick note on the audio side of things I had two people to film but only one lav mic and one shotgun mic I knew the guys would be pretty close together most of the time so I put the lav on Eklips and made sure Kela was close to either myself or to the Frenchie whenever he was doing anything interesting My usual routine with the Zoom is to press record and then forget about it Creating one long audio file then syncing video to it is infinitely easier to manage than lots of video clips and lots of audio clips However sometimes it s pointless leaving it running if you have a big gap I switched off the Zoom incidentally powered by the Switronix via a custom cable from Hawkwoods highly recommended midway and forgot to switch it back on for the scene where the guys are providing beats for some local b boys That sound is all taken from the 5D Which is pretty remarkable really I always leave the 5D audio on auto because you just never know when
