Speaking of terms to Google, the process of creating lower resolution files and then relinking to higher resolution files for the final export is called a proxy workflow. Many NLEs have some sort of...

Of course! Both are fantastic cameras and Rokinon lenses are perfectly adequate--provided the set includes a wide option like the 10 or 14. I did a short a while ago with a BMCC 2.5k and the widest...

Camera: Have you considered a micro four thirds camera? They are smaller (more discrete) and the small sensor means you have a larger margin of error on focus pulling. There are also a lot of very...

Does the $1000 include lenses or just the body? A T2i would be great. I would recommend a Panasonic GH3 over the T2i, and it's only $550 on B&H right now. You might have other criteria, but here are...

Thanks! Yeah, I know it's confusing, but I'm happy you liked parts of it anyway. Though, it wasn't quite a semester project, I only got two weeks to do it.

Shoot in color and desaturate in post.

If you go ML raw, I don't think there is a way to shoot black and white. Your picture profile and white balance have no effect on what is actually recorded...

I would rather own a GH4 than a BMPCC. This is based on my experience owning a GH3 and using a BMCC 2.5k most of this semester.

The GH4 will be much more flexible. Higher frame rates, good still...

Can you hide a cut by using an object hanging from the ceiling? For example, the camera goes up until it moves behind an exit sign (for example), at which point the screen is completely black. Cut to...

No, changing your f-number by a factor of sqrt(2) equals one stop of light. So going from f10 to f14 is about one stop. f10 to f22 is just over 2 stops, not near 8.

Though an ND256 filter is 8...
