To (not) do
You can go to distribber and sign up to get your film distributed on iTunes for $1300. At the top of the page is a link to send you a "four part report" on "filmmakers' worst distribution mistakes." I'm thinking -- isn't paying for distribution one of them?
Here (thanks to Xavier Rodriguez) is a lighting test shooting with a GH1. They reshot a scene from Blade Runner. It matches pretty well. Note how they put Deckard way to the side of the screen with no "front" space. That's not usually how you shoot someone but it looks great (I believe that was the framing in the original).
