  2. Sony today announced the HDC-F5500 system camera, the latest entry in Sony’s HDC camera series, which boasts a highly sensitive Super 35mm, 4K CMOS global shutter image sensor that enables shallow depth of field. The new multi-format addition builds on the success and benefits of the industry-standard HDC lineup and serves as a powerful tool for those in need of creative expression with a cinematic look, in a system camera form factor and workflow. Thanks to the global shutter effect to prevent rolling shutter distortion and flash band, and its high frame rate capability of 120fps, the HDC-F5500 is ideal for sports and live entertainment production. The camera’s high sensitivity and low noise also make it suitable for capturing dark scenes, which is especially beneficial for drama productions. “There is a strong desire to integrate the ‘cinematic look’ into sports and entertainment productions to heighten emotions and enable more connected storytelling,” said Theresa Alesso, Pro Division President, Sony Electronics. “Listening to the voice of our customers, we’ve taken our expertise with 35mm cinema cameras and our learnings in industry-leading system cameras and created a new Super 35mm system camera that will match perfectly and easily work alongside our HDC camera series, as well as our portfolio of production solutions.” A first for a systemized S35mm system, the HDC-F5500 features a motorized 8-step ND filter adopted in Sony’s digital motion picture camera VENICE, which can be controlled locally or remotely, for increased operational flexibility. It also allows for the precise selection of focus depth as well as controlled capture of fast-moving subjects even in bright lighting conditions. Another highlight of the new system camera is its wide color gamut. Support for BT.2020, S-Gamut3/S-Gamut3.cine and HLG enhance creativity and reality and match seamlessly with the color science driving Sony’s most in-demand cameras. The new camera also provides numerous workflow enhancements for more efficient live production. The HDC-F5500 integrates with Sony’s IP Live production system through the use of the HDCU-5000 series, which supports SMPTE ST 2110 and AMWA NMOS standards. The HDC-F5500 can utilize the new IP extension adaptor HDCE-TX50 for remote production or multi-camera flight pack “CCU-Less” operation. The HDC-F5500 is also compatible with Sony’s existing SR Live for HDR workflow with HLG and S-Log3. Additionally, the newly developed ARIA (Automatic Restoration of Illumination Attenuation) function, for select supported PL and zoom lenses, calibrates and compensates picture appearance when shooting at a distance. Other features include a new viewfinder slide mechanism compatible with existing large viewfinders that minimizes the camera operator’s body movement while panning and allows for use in tight or challenging environments. The HDC-F5500 also has an ergonomic grip for handheld work, and side tally lamp. 4K/12G-SDI direct output from the camera facilitates wireless operation and direct recording. The HDC-F5500 is planned to be available in December 2021. For more information about this new system camera or Sony’s lineup of HDC cameras, please visit pro.sony.

  13. The reason I am not including cameras like C300 is they don't have lenses built in. Carrying and buying lenses becomes very expensive for a small document crew, though with big budgets one can always rent an Arri SXT as well. Add to that the shallow depth of field of large sensor cameras, making capturing precise moments ion documentary very challenging, and in the experience of many filmmakers, frustrating.

  15. (Reprinted with permission from Anamika Jha's excellent blog here:) By Anamika Jha, Media Lawyer Recently, I have watched the film, Mimi. I felt good to see the advising law firm of the production house got a flattening credit in the opening slate! Umm, lawyers are also getting acknowledged! However, as a lawyer, I remain uncomfortable throughout the film. It is a highly engaging film. I loved the humour elements, stunning performance of the actors and the storytelling. I was trying hard to leave my legal brain aside and focus on the entertainment. Despite this, there were several legal flaws in the film that I couldn't ignore (even trying hard!). Let me explain to you few major legal flaws in the story of Mimi (spoiler alert!). In the film, a foreign couple hired Mimi as a surrogate in India. The Government of India has banned foreign couples from taking surrogacy services in India since 2015. The Government has proposed to entirely ban commercial surrogacy. In the film, the commissioning parents abandon the unborn child after they know that the child has Down Syndrome. Legally, they cannot just leave like this! ICMR has clear guidelines that they are bound to accept the baby legally and contractually. In the later stage, they threaten to take legal action against Mimi. Her lawyer says that they shall succeed in the action. However, I doubt after being defaulters themselves, they can easily get away with the legal process. They ask Mimi to abort the child at the advanced stage of her pregnancy. However, as per the current legal position, a woman has the discretion to terminate the pregnancy within twenty weeks only. After ending the film, I replayed it from the starting and then I noticed that in the beginning, they have indicated that this film is set in the year 2013 for a fraction of a second. It should be shown more prominently. Most Likely, a common person, watching the film in the year 2021, will presume that this is the current situation of surrogacy in India! This is the reason why many doctors and people working in the IVF industry have voiced their criticism against the film. There are several films (countless TV serials) where we can witness glaring misrepresentation of the factual legal position. For example, in the movie Jolly LLB, the protagonist files a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in a District Court! Legally, you can file a PIL only in the High Courts or the Supreme Court. Another example is a scene in the TV series Maharani. We see that police are dragging state legislators from the legislative house to arrest them in a corruption case. Legally, police cannot arrest the member of the house while it is in session. This list can go on and on. Unlike our industry, when we see Foreign shows like House of Cards, Tokyo Trials, How to Get Away With Murder, etc., it is rare to see such glaring misrepresentations. It appears that creators have researched how the legal system works (of course, some creative liberties are permissible!) as part of their research. Recently, we can see a few Indian well-researched shows/films where we can see how a police administration and courts work. I shall count Delhi Crime, Section 375, Criminal Justice, etc., in this category. However, in India taking legal advice for the content is not a norm but an exception. Recently, one of my clients approached me. He is making a film based on the Domestic Violence Act, 2005 (I have changed the theme due to confidentiality). We had few marathon sessions to ensure that his story is comparable with the legal mechanism in place. He took his creative liberties but assured that courtroom drama is not just a caricature. For example, in the film, no flying witness is storming the Court at the last moment shouting, "Rukiye Judge Sahab….". Taking legal advice on the content of your script enhances the credibility of your film. The audience in 2021 is the smart one. We are dealing with Gen Z. Also, we are competing with foreign well-researched content. Even a typical audience having no legal background can point out such flaws. Hence, if we want to create commercially successful and impactful cinema, making the legal review part of our research is desirable. If you are writing about a subject that deals with a particular law, you must have a list of factual and legal questions for your lawyer. Take some time to understand how things work factually and legally. Ask her that how should you show the Court Drama? Is "Mai Geeta pe hath Rakh pe Kasam khati hu..." is a manner to give an affidavit in the Court? Do not hesitate to ask! I suggest you take expert help. A well-versed entertainment lawyer can provide you with such sessions at an affordable price. An entertainment lawyer deals extensively with creators. She/he understands that you are not making a legal documentary but entertainment content. Hence, her approach remains that you can present your content factually compatible with the legal position and its core entertainment element. However, if you still want to make a court drama based on Tarikh pe Tarikh, Tarikh Pe Tarikh punch line, that's ultimately your choice! As you are the boss of the content you create!

  16. No Impact Man: Author Colin Beavan, in research for his new book, began the No Impact Project in November 2006. A newly self-proclaimed environmentalist who could no longer avoid pointing the finger at himself, Colin leaves behind his liberal complacency for a vow to make as little environmental impact as possible for one year. No more automated transportation, no more electricity, no more non-local food, no more material consumption no problem. That is, until his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two year-old daughter are dragged into the fray. Laura Gabbert and Justin Scheins film provides a front row seat into the familial strains and strengthened bonds that result from Colins and Michelles struggle with this radical lifestyle change. Watch on Amazon.
  17. Food Inc. In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of e coli--the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield Farms' Gary Hirschberg and Polyface Farms' Joe Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising -- and often shocking truths -- about what we eat, how it's produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here. Watch it on Amazon.
  18. The Human Element: With rare compassion and heart, "The Human Element" follows environmental photographer James Balog on his quest to highlight Americans on the frontlines of climate change, inspiring us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world. DIRECTED BY Matthew Testa FEATURING James Balog.
  19. Before The Flood: From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award-winning actor, and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio, BEFORE THE FLOOD presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change.
  20. Blackfish Some of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000 pound orcas, or "killer whales," soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet this mighty black and white mammal has many sides -- a majestic, friendly giant, seemingly eager to take trainers for a ride around the pool, yet shockingly -- and unpredictably -- able to turn on them at a moment's notice. BLACKFISH unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who -- unlike any orca in the wild -- has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what went wrong? Shocking footage and riveting interviews with trainers and experts manifest the orca's extraordinary nature, the species' cruel treatment in captivity over the last four decades and the growing disillusionment of workers who were misled and endangered by the highly profitable sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans truly know about these highly intelligent, and surprisingly sentient, fellow mammals that we only think we can control. When you look into their eyes, somebody's home. Somebody's looking back at you. . . but it may not be what you think.
  21. General Orders No. 9 Awarded for its visionary cinematography, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 breaks from the constraints of the documentary form as it contemplates the signs of loss and change in the American South. The stunning culmination of over eleven years of work from first time writer-director Robert Persons, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 marries experimental filmmaking with an accessible, naturalist sensibility to tell the epic story of the clash between nature and man's progress, and reaches a bittersweet reconciliation all its own. Told entirely with images, poetry, and music, GENERAL ORDERS No. 9 is unlike any film you have ever seen. A story of maps, dreams, and prayers, it is one last trip down the rabbit hole before it's paved over.
  22. With the climate change having become a climate emergency, we realise things didn't just go bad overnight. Writers, journalists, film makers, musicians, scientists, activists, students, etc have been ringing the warning bells for years now. Here are some great environmental documentaries that talk about the damage we have unleashed on our planet Earth (This is not the entire list. I am yet to discover more great films on the subject. Please keep adding to the list): Gasland: GASLAND - (2010) Directed by Josh Fox. Winner of Special Jury Prize - Best US Documentary Feature - Sundance 2010. Screening at Cannes 2010. It is happening all across America and now in Europe and Africa as well - rural landowners wake up one day to find a lucrative offer from a multinational energy conglomerate wanting to lease their property. The Reason? In America, the company hopes to tap into a huge natural gas reservoir dubbed the Saudi Arabia of natural gas. Halliburton developed a way to get the gas out of the ground—a hydraulic drilling process called fracking—and suddenly America finds itself on the precipice of becoming an energy superpower. But what comes out of the ground with that natural gas? How does it affect our air and drinking water? GASLAND is a powerful personal documentary that confronts these questions with spirit, strength, and a sense of humor. When filmmaker Josh Fox receives his cash offer in the mail, he travels across 32 states to meet other rural residents on the front lines of fracking. He discovers toxic streams, ruined aquifers, dying livestock, brutal illnesses, and kitchen sinks that burst into flame. He learns that all water is connected and perhaps some things are more valuable than money.
  23. The Producers Guild of India has released a lengthy set of risk protection guidelines to be implemented when filming resumes in the market. Though an official production start date has yet to be fixed, the “Back To Action” report outlines safety measures for the world’s biggest maker of films whose audience leans heavily towards local fare. Among the protocols are regular hand-washing, the use of three-ply masks and social distancing as well as training and daily drills to ensure precautions “become a habit.” Color-coding for crew members and a suggestion that crew above 60 years of age be avoided are further mentioned.
  24. Some of the rules include wearing a three-layered mask and gloves at all times, avoiding physical contact of any nature and sanitizing surfaces and hands during every entry and exit of a shoot.Colleagues have to maintain a distance of minimum two meters and the actors consuming food and beverages during a sequence should take special care to avoid infection.
  25. For a very long time, the C300 series of cameras from Canon has been the de facto standard for broadcast documentary work, and the C300 III has carried on with that tradition. Just like the FX6, it contains everything the run-and-gun documentary shooter needs in an all-in-one design. vidmate download instasave
  26. In 2021, the best cameras for documentary filmmaking are: Canon Vixia HF G40, Panasonic Lumix GH5, Sony DSC-RX10 IV, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6k (and 4k), Canon EOS C100 MK II, Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H, Sony PXW-FS7 II 4K XDCAM, Canon C300 MK II (vs Canon C500 MK II), and the Sony PXW-FX9.
