RED Dragon Visual Lens Comparison for Directors
by featured blog contributor, Jeremy PinckertSometimes when I’m in the thick of pre-production on a new television advertising spot, I’m tempted to put all of my emphasis on the obvious questions: Who will be the cinematographer? What camera system will we use? What casting decisions need to be made? Who the hell can convert my scribbles into a real storyboard?There’s a step often left out of the above question process, but one that, as a Director or Producer, does have a significant effect on your picture.

How I Created My First Broadcast Documentary for BBC World
I found myself gazing at Cornwall's tallest summit, while relentless rain battered me from all directions. My 6K Black Magic cinema camera hung from my grasp, covered in a black trash bag, its lens speckled with tiny water droplets. That day would set a new record for the highest rainfall ever recorded in the South West. This was my initiation into producing my very first TV documentary. Two months later, our film would be broadcast on BBC World, reaching over 400 million viewers and would be re-aired three more times due to its immense popularity. Our team wasn't a documentary film or TV studio; we were a small bootstrapped video production company based out of my dads house in Cornwall. Before embarking on this adventure, we had no experience in delivering documentary film, and to make matters more challenging, we didn't know anyone in the industry to lend us a hand. This brief article aims to share the lessons we learned along the way, in the hopes of making your journey to TV a bit smoother.

But what I am advocating is that you can upgrade your production values without breaking the bank. Let’s take a look at some of the exciting new gear for you out there right now.
A Guide to Cinematography Drones and the Laws that Govern Them
Thanks to small, high-quality digital cameras, professional and personal drones have completely transformed the production industry, letting filmmakers capture shots that were previously unattainable to non-studio filmmakers. To capture aerial footage a few years ago, you had to either book time in a helicopter containing a professional operator, remote head, and bulky HD camera, or, for lower altitudes, rent the services of a small remote helicopter and operator from a company like Flying-Cam or Coptervision. As you can probably guess, helicopters don’t come cheap.
