|Early key art for "Day 2"|
Producer: You can use film if you pay for it.
Cinematographer: I'll pay for it!
Producer: Liar. You mean I'll pay for it.
Cinematographer: Er... um.
Producer: Just for that, I'm cutting your lighting budget in half.
Cinematographer: You can't do that!
Producer: I hope you like fluorescent lights.
Cinematographer: Well sometimes those are nice. They have those new instruments which are daylight-balanced...
Producer: Here's a clip light.
Cinematographer: Can't I get a stand to attach it to?
Producer: What do I look like, a millionaire?
It's a cruel world, ain't it?
*Note that I don't even think the footage they have on that ProVideo Coalition site is all that awesome. It does indeed seem to lack some things. Maybe it's the lack of grain? But it doesn't matter, we can add grain in post if you like. A good-looking guy and some music on the soundtrack, the only thing missing is a (ahem) story.
That Alexa camera looks pretty cool. But, if I had an actual budget, I'd still rather shoot 35mm.
I'd rather shoot 35 too. Maybe if you talked to my producer... ;-)
I don't really expect to have an actual budget anytime soon.
Ha! Don't I know what THAT'S like! ;-)
