If you are thinking of bying a light meter or a color meter here’s a solution to consider. Cine Meter II app for iPhone made by Adam Wilt costs around 25€ in iTunes app store. Luxi costs between 10-30€ depending on which version you buy.
Time for the best movies of the year list. It was especially hard to do as a few of the films I liked the best were actually released before 2016 but weren’t really available in Finland before. So I’m taking the liberty to include those as well.
Samurai Rauni Reposaarelainen was filmed over a three year period. Our first day of shooting was on march 2013 and our final shoot was in April 2016. September 2016 we had our premiere of the movie at Helsinki International Film Festival – Love & Anarchy at a sold out Savoy theater to an audience of 700 people.
Samurai Rauni Reposaarelainen sai maailmanensi-iltansa kahdesti. Ensin Säpin majakkasaarella missä se näytettiin kirjoituskilpailun voittaneille yhdeksälle ihmiselle ja sen jälkeen Rakkautta & Anarkiaa festivaaleilla 700 ihmiselle. Esittelyssä elokuvan näyttelijät!
Samurai Rauni Reposaarelainen on Moderni Kanuuna RY:n ensimmäinen elokuva ja se on tehty kokonaan talkoovoimin. Yhdistyksen tarkoituksena on tuottaa omaehtoisia taide-elokuvia. Nyt onkin aika esitellä osa kuvausryhmää elokuvamme takana!
My favourite films of 2015.
We’ve been shooting our first feature film Samurai Rauni Reposaarelainen since January 2013. This is the first post of a few I will make during the production of the film. I don’t want to say too much about the storyline before we’ve released the film. For now the posts will be more about the technical hurdles and I hope that we can encourage and help others in making their own independent feature film.
Follow focus is one of the best and most used accessories I have for my camera rig. It’s essential when you need to do a difficult rack focus on a complicated shoot. Normally a dedicated focus puller would do the focus pulling for you while you concentrate on composition. I’ve rarely had this luxury but it’s something I’d highly recommend. I do feel that it’s a really good thing to have a follow focus even when working alone.
These are my favourite films of all time. The ones that have had the greatest impact on me as a person and influence as an artist. What’s on your list? Scroll down to the bottom to reveal the titles or try to guess the movies from the still images!
My favourite films from 2014.
I bought the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera second hand just days after it was released. I have a feeling there will be plenty of them to go around. This is a very special piece of gear and many people will be struggling with the caveats. It records ProRes and raw, has 13 stops of dynamic range and is extremely small and light.
