    I think you mean 23.976, but yeah. There are thousands of major feature films shooting around the world in 24fps and have been for almost 100 years (since sound film was invented around 1927), so I...

    I question what monitor you're using to judge final color. Can you trust it? Is it calibrated?

    We often find we have to soften material because it's too sharp. But a lot depends on the type of...

    Don't forget that the Eastern side of Japan is 50Hz, and the Western side is 60Hz. Japan is one of the most prosperous and technologically important countries in the world... and they don't have a...

    They should "in theory" send out a post workflow document with everything in writing prior to the first day so there is absolutely no question how to do it. We just delivered a Netflix BTS...

    Over the air TV still requires 1080i 29.97, or 720P (depending on the network or cable channel). Last I checked Netflix and Amazon delivery specs, it was still 23.98 IMF (with a lot of specifics...

    I think you can make digital look closer to film (in terms of level and contrast) than you think. It doesn't have to look "flat" per se -- that's just what one colorist did.

    Check out Steve...

    I think this is a very bad idea for post, for a lot of reasons. Sliding sync is high on that list.

    If you needed a "slo-mo feel," I would've added some horizontal smear, basically...

    H.264 files also don't natively support embedded timecode, as far as I know. ProRes 444, 422, 422HQ, 422LT, and all the flavors of Avid DNxHD and DNxHR do. We traditionally use 422LT for viewing...

    There's also the David Fincher technique, where he shoots everything in 6K or 8K Raw static, then adds all the camera shake (to a 4K deliverable) in post. The advantage of doing it that way is that...

    Yeah, that's a proven process that works well. We generally recommend to client that the temp color offline daiiies copies have "spoiler" vis timecode that identifies the specific takes and project...

    We use a whole bunch of G-Speed Shuttle RAIDs at the office. We go with spinning drives for big, long-term storage (about 100TB each) and then use a 16TB SSD RAID to store current projects. The...

    I've worked with Red material in final color for almost 15 years now. In fact, I did the very first Red project we ever got in at Technicolor/Hollywood, in the fall of 2007.

    My subjective opinion...

    I agree completely with Jake. I also think tools like this tend to slow down colorists trying to work quickly on a control surface. I get the value of precision adjustments with a mouse but it'd be...

    Absolutely stunning show. It's worth watching just for the look -- but the story, the characters, and the art design are all worthwhile as well. Works on every level. Colorist Steve Bodner also did a...

    We can punch that up in post. I generally tell people to watch the key-to-fill ratio and fill a little more, knowing we can crush it down more in post if we need it. Of course, tests will give you...

    Tell the client when you shoot on film on set, you also don't get to see the grain there -- you have to wait for the film to be processed.

    My advice is to just do some tests and give them a...

    I asked about Solitaire when I was at ILM in 2004, and they kind of shrugged and said they had one in storage but they didn't use it anymore. I think the Arri laser recorders pretty much killed it...

    I think it's a very bad idea to try to judge HDR on cheap displays. This (unfortunately) is a "you get what you pay for" issue.

    I think HDR on YouTube is dodgy as it is. It's no problem on...

    I don't think this is a legit test if they didn't use a 3rd-party probe and calibration software like Light Illusion or Calman. That will really tell you what the display can do with Rec709 and HDR....

    I have yet to be on a film set that doesn't have anxiety.

    When we're in final color sessions, my usual question on a scene is not "what color do you want" or "how bright should this be?" I ask,...

    Well, you're stating all those things as facts. The reality is that it's just an opinion.

    We're fine with sticking with Macs for 99% of our work, and it's not a problem for us. I always say: if...
