This is theC47's video-based "stream of thoughts." All about production, the industry, equipment & craft.

If you've been a long time visitor to theC47 you might be looking for older episodes "gearbox." Many of those can be found on theC47's YouTube Channel. A lot of the content is older but some of it may be relevant to what you're trying to learn or figure out.

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. As time goes on this section will grow, A LOT, as will theC47's YouTube Channel. Enjoy!

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.

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.  


Besides my normal teaching gigs that take up most of my time at NAB, I am also running around and sitting on discussion panels and making on floor presentations in the Central Hall.
