    I would like to get a group together for a short film brain-storming / spit-balling / writing idea session. This worked well during the 48HFP, which resulted in more than one practical story idea, and I know that folks have expressed an interest in doing it again. I have had an idea for a...

    AKG CK93

    The other mic was a Schoeps MK 41 (aka CMC641), along with some Sanken COS-11D lavs on Sennheiser G3 radios.

    AKG CK93

    I don't know, because I don't make handling noise ;) Seriously, I haven't noticed any particular handling noise, but I use a decent shock mount and I really do stop making handling noise during takes. I'll have to play around with it. I did discover one weakness of this microphone: RF...

    Who's Paisley? (An Expression of Love)

    Hey, this isn't my project, but I wanted to post about it here. I counted ten people on the team with whom I've worked. I'm sure the film will be awesome! Here's a link to their Seed & Spark campaign: Who's Paisley? (An Expression of Love)

    Since Charter won't let me talk to anyone smart enough to unblock this server's IP address, I have established a work-around. The problem should be resolved, if not necessarily to my satisfaction.

    There's also Adobe Portfolio, "free with your Creative Cloud subscription". I'd forgotten about it. I remember passing it up when I first heard about it because I didn't having it tied to continued payment for CC, and also because Adobe has a bad track record of abandoning products. However...

    Charter/Spectrum is being particularly obtuse about this. I'm going to have to come up with a work-around.

    I haven't used Wix, but it is evidently easy to use, because I know people who are completely non-technical and who have had no trouble setting up a decent looking site. I'm fairly certain they have templates for portfolios. If you wanted to have more control of things, but don't want to have...

    AKG CK93

    Hi, my name is Michael, and I have a microphone fetish. I just acquired an AKG CK93 + SE300B hypercardioid microphone for $338 + tax, and I'm quite impressed. This is a definite buy recommendation. As you may know, a shotgun is not the ideal type of microphone for indoor dialog from an...

    Buy Camera and Lenses?

    Rokinon's lenses are pretty well known. They've been making lower cost lenses for a long time, and they are decent, especially for the price. These have geared focus and aperture rings, which make them really useful to filmmakers (when you add a device for follow focus). I'm not a lens snob...

    Rycote Stereo Cyclone

    After some weeks waiting for the special order, my Rycote Stereo Cyclone has arrived. It's a very effective windscreen built specifically for stereo microphones, which mainly means that it has 5-pin XLR connectors on the cable leading out of the basket. The Cyclones come in a few sizes, and...
