Film: Jojo Rabbit Family makes a man and the man makes a country .. a saying used beautifully for weaving the entire story behind the little Rabbit.. If it wasent for the Hail....I would have lost interest in the Rabbit before it started hopping through the vivd frames of the tale of a young lad who brings the glorious past back to the screen in a subtle, comical and yet powerful manner. A film influenced heavily by Adolf Hitler, is not a regular war narrative but an emotionally sweet yet thought provokingly funny story, told through the eyes of Jojo Betzler, a 10 year old English lad born in the German setup! Its that time in German history when the Fuhrer is at the verge of the historic fall-down bringing a fresh light of freedom for the Jews. The film brilliantly revolves around JOJO our man on the mission of attaining superior fan-following for the Fuhrer . Little Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) steals the show and over-shadows Adolf (Taika Waititi) with the innocence of childhood and the burning desire to prove his love and idolization for Hitler. Jojo is a true Nazi lover and follows the preachings of Hitler till the last word until the beautiful Jew-teen Elsa (Thomasin Mc.Kenzie) crosses Jojo's path causing butterlfies in his stomach, literally (I love this effect being shown on screen in a comic way, sprinkling innocent love on the audience too.) But Jojo is gearing up to go into the battle field at the raw age of 10 years and yet the empathetic emotions for Jews are starting to shape up in his little heart, tearing Jojo between Adolf and Elsa. The battle of raw, innocent emotions for what is right and what is wise from the eyes of Jojo is the gripping factor in this beautifully conceived film by writer & Director (Taika Waititi). The child protagonist has flawlessly given strong competition to the big-wigs of the industry! Screen time of, beautiful mother of Jojo, Rosie Betzler (Scarlett Johansson) is limited yet powerful. She dances through the frames in her typically stylish leather shoes, the two-tone-brown-and-white shoes are at first a symbol of beauty which Jojo sees in his mother as playfulness, but then they telegraph a tragic story which changes Jojo's world and is symbolic to one of the Hitler's gut-wrenching rules followed during his era. Captain Klenzendorf (Sam Rockwell) has given an amusingly emotional performance till the end of the film and yet maintains the limelight on little Jojo. Captain's entire team, comprising of Fraulein Rahm (Rebel Wilson), Finkel (Alfie Allen), has given a laudable performance. Each shift in focus, on Captain and his team, is a riot of laughter. Not to miss... the heart warming performance of best friend of Jojo, Mr. Yorki (Archie Yates). He is truly supportive of Jojo at each step and reminds the audience as little Hugh Grant. All the characters in this film hold significant effect on the audience and brings a strong feeling inside the viewer.The film is worth a watch for the impeccable acting and narrative!

Hosted by Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media, this video compares the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera and the Canon 5D Mark III in several tests. This includes dynamic range, sharpness, pushing levels, banding, artifacts, rolling shutter, chromakeying, wide/telephoto lengths, DOF (depth of field), low light, macro blocking, contrast, and more. Going a step closer with the Cinema Camera, Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media focuses on how 12-bit RAW compares in relation to 8-bit alternatives, including many camera solutions costing much more. The difference between “perceived dynamic range” and “available dynamic range” is explored in detail. Also covered is day-for-night, detail versus sharpness, and much more. Some questions have arisen as to why a LOG curve wasn't used (or if it would help) for the 8-bit source (amongst others),OneRiverMedia created a blog post on the topic to answer any questions that might be regarding.
