    Shane now is time for NDs that are screwable and 105mm for the Canon EF 4K primes.
    Can’t wait you make with Tiffen something like that. Canon 1Dc 4K, 105mm NDs, BarTech and Mōvi 10 is going to be a killing cocktail, too bad that there is always to wait so long before accessories are ready.

    Hi Shane, I just wanted to say that I absolutely love all of your posts! They are always extremely in depth and very very interesting. I’m currently a high schooler with a huge passion for filmmaking, and my entire team and I are completely self taught in all things related to filmmaking as our school has no classes for media. It’s high quality content like yours that educated me throughout the years and not only inspired, but allowed me to follow my dreams and make movies. For that I just wanted to say thank you to take time out of your hectic life to share such useful knowledge to those like me who cannot gain said knowledge elsewhere. Through content like yours I was able to teach myself the different aspects of movie making and as a senior in high school I have now made my first feature length film (it is an hour and forty minutes). If you have a free minute, I’d love for you to check out it’s trailer at this link, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPVNDaLIbBI the film is called Retrieval. Without you and your willingness to share your knowledge there’s a good chance this film would have never been made.

      You are remarkably well spoken for a high school student. Good luck and God bless. A lack of media classes isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I had a high school media course and I graduated from Ohio University Southern in T.V. Production. I can honestly say I’ve learned more on my own from researching online (especially here) and doing than I did in any of my classes. That’s not to say that an education isn’t valuable, it’s just that you don’t necessarily need it to follow your dreams. Keep up your strong spirit and chase the light!

        Thank you for your very kind words Dustin, I greatly appreciate it! I’ve already hit my fair share of hurdles and road blocks throughout the production of all of my films and I anticipate to hit many more in the future, but I have no plans of giving up either. Your encouragement truly means a lot to me!

      Mark DePasquale, WOW!!!! I am really glad that all of this information and inspiration has helped guide you. It was the intent of my beautiful wife Lydia to give all this out. To educate, innovate and inspire filmmakers that might not have the resources of a film program. I will check out the trailer and thank you for all of your wonderful words and support.
