RAC WA & WUNDERMAN THOMPSON A REMINDER TO KEEP YOUR KEYS ON YOU RAC and Wunderman Thompson have designed a simple yet powerful behavioural nudge to help reduce the more than 400 cases of children locked in cars each year in WA. This project was a fantastic experience for us. The concept was excellent and certainly resonated with Dean and I personally. It allowed us to produce a mini-doc (branded storytelling) as well as working off storyboards and scripts [...]

The Ursa Mini Pro G2 is AMAZING… but it died on us after 3 months

The Ursa Mini Pro G2 A camera exceeding expectations... but (it died on us after 3 months) In the first half of 2019 I didn’t’ once think we’d be leaving the RED digital cinema camera ecosystem. The announcement of the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6k (BMPCC 6k) really grabbed my attention 6k, 50fps, 13 stops dynamic range, dual native ISO… for $2495 USD!!?? So to back track, in mid-2019 we were rocking a Red Scarlet-W as our A-cam and a Red Scarlet-MX as our B-cam. [...]

LOOKING BACK AT ALUCINOR IN 2019 EVENFALL PRODUCTION WRAPPED, EYEING EARLY 2020 COMPLETION Evenfall is admittedly behind schedule., mainly due to hectic workloads and trying to achieve some modicum of a work/life balance. However, we completed filming in 2019, are edit locked and are now finalising VFX, sound and music. We are 97% done. To the cast and crew who have been incredible... and incredibly patient. Genuinely thank your for making the experience making this short such an [...]

THE URSA MINI PRO G2 & THE BMPCC 6K WHY WE LEFT RED FOR BLACKMAGIC DESIGN CINEMA CAMERAS In 2008 we purchased two JVC HD111E camcorders for around $14,500 AUD. They shot 1280x720p video at around 20mbps... on DV tape. Less than two years later we sold one of them for $2500 and purchased a 5D Mark II - a revolutionary full frame DSLR capable of 1080p video recording at approx 38mbps data rate. At the end of 2012 we picked up a barely [...]

Educational, Film Making, Drama, Short Film, YouTube|

PASSION PROJECTS THEIR IMPORTANCE FOR CORPORATE & COMMERCIAL FILMMAKERS We are in post-production on 'Evenfall', our first (purely creative non commissioned) narrative short film in five years. It's got me reflecting on how much I've gained from the process of making it and the importance of creative passion projects in our lives and careers as filmmakers. Subscribe to our YouTube channel or follow us on Facebook or Instagram to stay up to date with our progress on the film. The film crew after [...]

What does a Red Scarlet-W owner think of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K???

THE BLACKMAGIC POCKET CINEMA CAMERA 6k DEAN SHARE'S HIS THOUGHTS (AS A RED SCARLET-W SHOOTER) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtjYFHb9XZg&t=590s I didn't see this coming and I'm not going to lie, these specs at this price is OUTSTANDING VALUE! I share my honest thoughts on this development as someone who shoots on and has invested in a far more expensive camera system - the Red Scarlet-w (when I'm not hiring something else).

Why and how we may be leaving Adobe Premiere Pro after 15+ years

Educational, Film Making, YouTube, content, Post Production, Editing|

ADOBE PREMIERE PRO 15+ years... Is it time to break up? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=573u_EP2wRs&t=7s After 15+ years with Adobe Premiere Pro we are seriously looking at dumping Premiere Pro entirely in favour of Davinci Resolve. Firstly due to the constant crashing and lack of stability with the software (constantly encountering new bugs), and secondly due to a growing dissatisfaction with their subscription model which is severely lacking in value now compared to Resolve. Resolve has always been industry leading colour grading software but it's gone [...]
