Re: star wars project
dude you should move down here then! hehe. i need another videographer and photographer for the studio...weddings are slowly picking up. i never wanted to be a wedding photographer but it's still art and i do enjoy it.
for video i'm now shooting with Canon GL2's, have the stage lighting, as you see some pictured already, some reflectors, odds and ends stuff. editing is adobe premiere pro. i don't use after fx much at all. i think the last time i dabbled with it was 3 years ago. for what i'm doing it isn't needed. just cuts and transitions. never was a fan of the stupid videographer cheese edit transitions. the only effect i may use is a 35mm film grain filter plugin to make it look like film. can't remember the co. i got them from but they are pro! no special lenses. just what's on the cam...i do have a wide angle and that is it. shooting in minidv. for voice overs and post audio it's pro tools.
i like animation to a point but i don't have the time to learn it. i always preferred the natural model thing anyway, although there are times when animation would be best. i can call on my cousin if i need that stuff done.
i have always wanted to do something with video for myself instead of for clients and this is one of those things. it's so hard to get it going with lack of time but i have to do it, just like i need to come out with another CD of my music once i get my chops up.
