    Arri had great news. "Yay! Cameron is using our M's!"

    Cameron finds out there has been some miscommunication. "These M'n'M's are confusing! I've always liked RED M'n'M's more than the blue ones! I want 50 RED ones...but not RED Ones. I want 50 M's. EPIC-M's, that is!"

    OH, the CONFUSION!
    If I knew you were this funny I would have tapped you on the shoulder and said hi at the 9:15am showing of Tattoo ;)

    No, minutes with a good rig.

    I wish people wouldn't keep propagating these myths.

    How many rigs/D shoots have you worked on?

    I've worked with most rigs now and minutes is all it takes.

    I guess it really depends on the rig you are using. Changing lenses, re-aligning, and re-calibrating of the remote FF usually takes 10-20 minutes in my experience with a element technica rig and SI2Ks... If you have to re-program offsets for the witness marks, it can add a few minutes (Unless you have a remote FF that can save profiles for different lens sets).

    I just want to amke it very clear that there is Jim Cameron the film-maker and Jim Cameron the part owner of a facility company.

    These are very different animals.

    Otto Nemenz and Clairmont regularly buy dozens of cameras and nobody wonders what film they're going to use "thier" camweras on, we all know it's a business.

    Just like Cameron Pace is, a growing company in the facilities rental market.

    Learn your business, please!

    Word up. Cameron didn't get to be in the position he is in today by making dummy decisions. He invests wisely in technology.
