Getting Your Lights and Camera in Impossible Places

first_imgThe Mini MAX is a great option to lighting a scene, giving the actors and camera the freedom to move and shoot at almost 360 degrees.Lighting a scene can seem straightforward, until you realize that there’s no way to hide the C-stands or light stands where the camera won’t see them. What seemed like a simple setup can become three or four different setups while you shoot around the physical limitations of the space.This always takes longer to shoot, and can easily create continuity issues in the edit.Big-budget productions get around the limitations of the humble C-stand by using cranes, overhead grids, and other big pieces of equipment that come in a large truck and take a team of experienced grips to set up, operate, and take down.Luckily for the independent filmmaker, there are some cheaper alternatives on the market that let you get your lights and (if you’re brave enough) camera sixteen feet in the air and nine feet from the stand.Mini MAXAt forty-four pounds, the Matthews Mini MAX grip is a hefty chunk of metal. But, it also fits in the trunk of a car and one person can carry it.The stand is a one-piece arrangement with an arm supported by two uprights. These uprights meet at the base, supported by two feet extending diagonally to the ground, creating a tripod. The arm can extend outward in three sections, and you can lower or raise it by changing the lengths of the uprights.StabilizationImage via Thongden Studio.Weigh the Mini MAX down to stabilize it. I placed 3×10 pound sandbags on it — one on the base and one on each leg. You can then mount your payload to the end of the arm and extend it section by section.Give the stand the “shake test” at each stage of setting up to make sure it’s stable enough to proceed. The engineering of the Mini MAX is solid, but you want to practice a healthy “margin of error” whenever you’re suspending a large piece of metal and glass above your talent.I was able to get my ten-pound Intellytech Mega ten feet in the air without any worries; running the cable down the arm to the power supply, I attached it to the base and used it as extra ballast. You could shoot a dinner table scene in a wide shot, or anything else requiring a pool of directed light, and easily keep the stand behind or beside the camera.You can substitute a light for a camera on a lighter tripod head, but I found it difficult to predict the orientation as the Mini MAX arm moves in an arc as you elevate it. I was only able to get the shot I wanted by raising the camera to the desired position, then using a ladder to set the shot.CostThe Mini MAX costs $1,140. I rented one for a day in L.A. for just $35. If you need to lift more weight, or need to get it further from the base, Matthews also makes the popular MAX Menace arm. This arm can lift 175 pounds, and it goes twenty feet in the air. It costs $6,763, but you can rent it for around $75 in most major cities on peer to peer sites like ShareGrid and KitSplit.Check it out yourself!Cover image via Jacob Lund.Want more tips of building your lighting kit?

Don’t Get Cute

first_imgToday I received a little box from a company who wants my attention. Inside the box was a small toy, and a link to a website, and nothing else. The sender wants my attention, and the offer is a serious offer, even though I didn’t watch more than a few seconds of the personal video on the site. I am the wrong audience, but the sender didn’t know that.He could have called me and I would have told him who to contact.Minutes later I received a LinkedIn InMail. The person sending that email was also trying to get my attention. She offered me a chance to play Truth or Dare, the dare being me giving her two times to speak with her about her services.I appreciate the creativity, and I like the playfulness, but not enough to talk to her about her service, especially since I don’t need it.Last week, a salesperson sent me a list of reasons that I might have not responded to their email. On choice suggested that I did not reply back because I had been eaten by alligators.The idea is that by being cute, the salesperson will get attention. They hope by being clever, they can gain an appointment. Different is good, and it can work, but different in a way that makes a difference is better. What is missing is the insight that would make a business person sit up and take notice. What the approach lacks is some compelling reason for me to take a meeting, and busy people don’t like to give up their time without getting something in return. This pitch is for receptive people, who are easier targets for this kind of messaging.The problem with being cute is that the attention you get may not be the impression you are trying to make. If you are trying to be consultative, and if you are aiming to be a person with deep insight, then starting by being cute may not serve those ends. That said, if your real personality is engaging and entertaining, then go with that (but I have seen the alligator thing 11 times, which means it isn’t even your material).A couple of the people who have sent me emails like this work in lead generation and appointment setting. They mean well, and their intentions are good, and I am certain that there are some markets where this approach yields results, but for many companies who call on people with the charge of making change, this approach feels too clever by half.

Wake up key message in letter from Calgary camp to province of

first_imgTamara PimentelAPTN NewsThe Mohkinstsis Camp in Downtown Calgary wrote an open letter to the Saskatchewan government regarding its actions toward the camp in Regina, telling the province to “wake up” and take the time to learn from Indigenous people.The Justice for our Stolen Children camp occupied Wascana Centre, outside the Saskatchewan legislature for nearly 200 days.It was taken down September 12 following a court decision to have the camp dismantled.Meanwhile, in Calgary, the camp remains standing and is receiving full support from the city.“We’re here to say,” said Garrett Smith, founder of Mohkinstsis, “Calgary and the province of Alberta can be proud with how they’ve been dealing with us so far.”Mohkinstsis is the Blackfoot name for Calgary.Despite by-laws, there hasn’t been any push back.The fire department even donated a fire extinguisher and smoke detectors for the teepees.It’s the kind of support Smith says he wishes the Regina camp received.“We’re here in another province, hundreds of kilometers away, but we feel them gone,” Smith said adding the two camps were connected and inspired each other.“They’re a reason why we decided to re-raise and name Mohkinstsis.”Smith says before Mohkinstsis there was no Indigenous presence downtown, no way for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to connect.last_img read more

Scheduling glitch has American Airlines scrambling for pilots for holiday flights

first_imgScheduling glitch has American Airlines scrambling for pilots for holiday flights Share DALLAS — A scheduling glitch has left American Airlines scrambling to find pilots to operate thousands of flights over the busy Christmas holiday period.A spokesman for the airline said Wednesday that American expects to avoid cancelling flights by paying overtime and using reserve or on-call pilots.American isn’t saying how many flights are affected, but the pilots’ union says that about 15,000 flights were scheduled without a captain, a co-pilot or both.American, the world’s biggest airline, has about 15,000 active pilots and expects to operate more than 200,000 flights in December.Pilots bid each month for flying assignments based on seniority. The scheduling glitch let pilots drop scheduled flights – to take a vacation over Christmas, for example – even when there were no other pilots available for that flight. Normally such a request would be denied, especially during busy travel periods.The pilots’ union estimated that when the problem was discovered late last week, about 19,000 cockpit seats were left empty. The glitch affected flights between Dec. 17 and Dec. 31 from nearly a dozen airports including hubs in Dallas, Chicago and Miami.More news:  GLP Worldwide introduces first-ever Wellness programs“This is a potential crisis that we see well in advance,” said Dennis Tajer, a spokesman for the union. “This is very unusual.”The union has lodged a protest against the company’s plan to fix the mistake by tapping reserve pilots and offering overtime pay for some of the unstaffed flights. The union says American is violating its labour contract by imposing a solution without union input, and is improperly restricting premium pay.Some nervous customers tweeted at the airline, looking for reassurance that their Christmas-travel plans would not be upset.American officials “expect to avoid cancellations this holiday season,” said airline spokesman Matt Miller. “We will work with the (union) to take care of our pilots and ensure we get our customers to where they need to go over the holidays.”Miller declined to say how much American expects to pay out in overtime because of the glitch.Despite American’s can-do response, scheduling mix-ups can create serious problems in the airline business. In September, Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair said it would cancel more 20,000 flights between November and March after admitting it “messed up” the transition to a new system for scheduling employee vacations.More news:  Carnival Cruise Line enhances HUB app for families and youthShares of American Airlines Group Inc. lost nearly $2 after news of the glitch, although they still closed up 3 cents at $49.25. Rivals fared much better – Delta, United, Southwest and JetBlue all rose at least 3 per cent.
