Have Look at the Prizes

I thought it would be fun for everyone to see the prizes for this years Charity Challenge that were wrangled together by our supporter Guy Cochran. Put together this little video about it.

OMG What a showoff!@#$%


Just Kidding ;)

Chris, congratulations on a great short film, and for showcasing the treasure.

I will buy a product from Guy Cochran for sponsoring these events.

(BTW if you don't need the monitor I know a poor DP who can use it... )

I've been shooting my next entry, and have been inspired
by 'Aunt Matilda's Present' to go extreme, and have some stunt man bruises to prove it. -BT

LOL! Funny because Chris is pretty much the opposite of a showoff. :)

Well, that *was* fun, and I'm tickled that you're tickled, Chris. Thanks for showing off--I mean--sharing the prizes with us.

As always, many thanks to Guy at DVeStore at DVcreators.net and also Marshall Electronics this time around!

Dick, that is the peaking filter, I am pretty sure, though I haven't started playing with it.

This is off the Marshall site here: Marshall Electronics - V-LCD70XP-HDMI

The False Color filter is used to aid in the setting of camera exposure. As the camera Iris is adjusted, elements of the image will change color based on the luminance or brightness values. This enables proper exposure to be achieved without the use of costly, complicated external test equipment. To best utilize this feature, you must understand the color chart and have a basic understanding of camera exposure. Normally, when shooting subjects like people, it is common practice to set exposure of faces to the equivalent of approximately 56 IRE. The False Color filter will show this area as the color PINK on the monitor. Therefore, as you increase exposure (open the IRIS), your subject will change color as indicated on the chart: PINK, then GREY, then a few shades of YELLOW. Overexposed subjects (above 101 IRE) on the monitor will be shown as RED. In addition, underexposed subjects will show as DEEP-BLUE to DARK-BLUE, with clipped-blacks indicated with a FUCHSIA-like color. Lastly, the color GREEN is used to indicate elements of the image that are approximately 45 IRE. This represents a "neutral" or "mid-level" exposure commonly used for objects (not people).

I just want to point out that this may be the first film showing Chris since he posted the one right after he had Bells's palsy... notice how he has made a pretty much FULL recovery!
His ugly mug now works just the way God planned it to.
