I'm surprised they didn't go for less cash up front and an offer of 10,000% of "net profit" because the odds the film will EVER see net profit are basically zero. Movies that do $125...

This is somewhat skewed because we used the same batteries for the 5" monitor, but I usually had about 12 batteries on set. A couple "real" ones and about 10 Chinese knock offs. You should be able to...

I bought some on Amazon, very bright, bright enough to be visible on a wall from 30 feet away for a shot. They're out there.

That sounds about right. I met some folks who made a zombie musical The Dead Inside. I think it cost about $500K to make. It sold to a company I used to work for. I think for about $150K.

"any decent lens massively out-resolves the (relatively) low-resolution sensors used by video cameras."

Will has it.

If there is no glass and only a slight distance increase from lens to sensor you won't lose any quality. I never shot one second of footage on my Canon 5D mk2 using canon lenses. I...

I look at a short like a joke (though it doesn't just apply to comedy). First you have the setup, then you have the punch line. Not time for much else in 5 to 12 minutes.

I thought the first season was really really good, then somewhere in season 2 they lost me (probably with the introduction of the shape shifters) and I never came back.
