Cameras 2014

Shot our film on a Nikon D3100.

Currently have a 18-55mm that we used.
I also have an old Minolta 75-300 that I use via converter. Didn't end up using it for the weekend.

What I learned this year

Something I learnt - be aware of where the other camera is. We decided to film a running scene, and cover it with multiple angles. On the first take, I was so focused on capturing a close up of the end of the running scene that I walked right into shot of another camera (See GIF above).

Burning the midnight oil

2nd year staying up all Saturday night (I don't plan to, but I know it'll happen all the same). All is going well, no re-shoots needed.

100% honest, I have not had any V in my life. Survived last year by drinking lots of water. This year, it's water + sugar...

I think it's part of the fun, working through the night!

What "filmmaking related" websites do you follow?

Adding my piece, even though it's gone quiet

For those of you who use Reddit, I check http://www.reddit.com/r/filmmakers regularly.

There is also a large list of film related subreddits (http://www.reddit.com/r/Filmmakers/wiki/subredditlist)

I am that web developer, but i'm also co-director, editor and part-time cinematographer...

I don't think NZ has a fair use clause, but might have to risk it...

It's not a large part, just forming the connection in the connecting storylines Genre

Hi
We want to have youtube comments in screenshot or recording form, in our movie.
They would be off this video -
which we created and uploaded for 48 hours.

Are we allowed to have the Youtube logo in the video, or does that count as copyright infringement?

Any help would be awesome
