theC47 videos

This is theC47's video-based "stream of thoughts." All about production, the industry, equipment & craft. Videos have been and will be the majority of content that's created on theC47. There's no better way, online at least, to show how something works or how it's done.

Enjoy!

RANDOM ACTS OF...

theC47 now has a weekly Vlog on YouTube called "Random Acts Of..."

This weekly series is focused on the craft of video production and filmmaking and each episode generally focuses on one particular topic related to production and what I’m doing as a producer, DP, educator and all around curious tinkerer. Basically it covers Random Acts Of… Lighting, Composition, Camera Movement, Lighting Control and anything else that interests me that is related to production that has educational value.

Here's are a few sample episodes so you can get an idea of what the series is all about. If you like it, please head over to theC47 YouTube Channel and subscribe. It's free and the more subscribers the channel gets the more time I can dedicate to creating free content!

Note: While I'm not talking about the C300 Mark II in this video, I'm sure I'll be creating lots of content around that camera as well. I believe it's truly targeted at the a different market and we'll see what that's all about when it's released. It's definitely built for future workflows as well such as Rec.2020

Note: We ran the Westcott Flex off of the Switronix 150WH Hypercore betteries for both days (actually batteries but they are better batteries!). They performed flawlessly and we could run for almost 3 hours at full power on each of them.
