We have to start making some hard (as in "absolute", not "difficult") decisions with 0904 Clonehunter. Unfortunately, I've been waiting on Maduka to give me his notes and... he read the wrong version of the script. The QOM has been busy stage managing shows (in addition, apparently she has some sort of day job) so there's no way she's going to give me any notes. I guess I'll just have to make decisions like I'm the... the... director or something.
Here's another interesting blog from the "Film Industry Bloggers". It's the "British Film Director" blog. I think the British thing is by and large irrelevant, he lives and works in the U.S., I suppose they just wanted to differentiate him from other directors on the site. He has an interesting $500K budget. That budget is off by two decimal places for us. Yeah, and I don't mean we're working at $50 million...
Lastly, it seems that we're going to have to shoot (at the very least) some exterior night plates in Gowanus Brooklyn. The HVX with the Letus Extreme adapter is too slow (ISO of about 200 maybe?) So I'm going to have to use a Nikon D90. I bought a Nikon 35mm f1.4 lens for it via eBay. And now I need an 85mm lens. Do I:
- Keep searching on eBay for a used Nikon
- Just go and buy a Vivitar f1.4 85mm for $350
- Bite the bullet and get a Zeiss f1.4 85mm for $1033
I suppose I'm just going to go into Adorama and say "Convince me to spend an extra $650 on a lens." I'm afraid that they will.
