Hi Josh!

I am as much about technique as anybody else. We are all day long working sometimes with, sometimes against our tools, trying to create/transmit some emotions. I also understand that DVinfo is more about technique...

But someone who after watching some work by Dan Chung is just worried about what FCP version he has or how many minutes his batteries last, should rather use their time for something more technical. There are thousands of technical hobbies, RC models, car/moto/boat/PC modding, etc.

There is a chinesse saying that goes more or less "When a finger points to the moon, the imbecile looks at the finger". Please, nobody take this as an insult, I am as interested about technical matters as anybody else. But if I had the oportunity to talk to Kubrick, I wouldn't ask him what tripod model he had... ;-DD

Dan works has it all, content, art and most of all: humanity. Let's try to copy that instead of his setup!!!

Hi Xavier,

Once more, I sympathise with your view, however...

DVinfo is a technical forum and Dan graciously shares technical info/advice. It's a compartively small audience here (relative to the number of people who see Dan's work), and one interested in gear/techique as well as content. The discussion here was about lenses and without trying to speak for Dan it's pretty clear from all his posts he loves his gadgets. I'd hazzard a guess Dan enjoys technical discussion and appreciation of his work on an aesthetic level, beyond his obvious skill as a storyteller and the power of content in stories like this (if you have a moment Dan chime in!).

Respectfully, I think it's unfair to suggest if one comments/enquires about someone's setup in a tech forum they've therefore missed the point of their work, or lack a desire to express humanity in their own.

For various family and work related reasons Dan's latest report affects me greatly - for several years I've read everything I can from every source on this topic - but beyond mentioning that his work is powerful, this forum is not set up to discuss such content. If it were, there are so many questions of a different nature I'd love to ask Dan, believe me.

It is however a place where one can freely ask about a lens choice or an audio issue.

Josh, sorry if I sound like I am judging or trying to decide something for others!!! This is a great forum with very nice people who can ask what they want, as much as Dan can answer everything he wants. It's not my intention to change/limit/judge this.

My comment is just that of all questions that come to my mind when watching Dan's work, the technical ones are the last... Nothing more!!! ;-DDD

I don't think it's against the rules to ask about non technical aspects?? I can be wrong! ;-)
