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.

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.

At the end of 2012 we picked up a barely [...]

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).
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 [...]
