Yesterday I posted about the new 32 mp camera phone. Upon further research I found that it is a design prototype from this Seattle company Artefact. Their point was to speculate about where pro-sumer cameras may be 3 to 5 years in the future. I think this discussion raises some interesting ideas about the future of film production & professional photography. DSLR’s are now being used for professional film production. This kind of system has the potential for easier remote control of a film production camera. Easy OS updates & the potential to develop creative/technical plug ins & apps, make this an exciting time to be involved in film production & photography. That said the Artefact Camera Futura is not going to be seen on the market any time soon. Thanks Artefact for starting a conversation.
I saw this amazing camera via Derrick Gibson on Facebook. It does HD Video. It will either become an expensive toy or a valuable production tool. To the latter it could be adapted to becoming a follow focus device similar to wireless follow focus being developed by Red Rock Micro.
I don’t know if you are a big fan of TED. But this video struck me as unique in the ways it combines creativity, technology & communication. That’s something I always aim for at Aesthetica, whether I am working in film, video or photography. Enjoy, Mike Kleven
I am sort of a wonk when it comes to learning new techniques that can be done at a low cost. Check out this tutorial from Planet 5-D about how to convert footage from 60 frames per second to 1000 frames per second without leaving your computer.
This is a great podcast for actors, filmmakers & anyone who is interested in the deeper meaning of life.
Check out this insightful article from Ryan Koo & my favorite blog: No Film School. I’ve actually been to film school but Ryan’s blog is excellent not only for it’s entertainment value but for the valuable insights for film professionals, like myself, seeking to establish themselves in this competitive industry. The reels are also nice, short, & pretty to look at. I’m working on mine right now.

So much going on with the new Aesthetica website. Talking up some projects with new compadre Sonia Weech. We’ll see if anything comes of it.
This is a short film I worked in this Summer. Michael Kowalczyk contacted me to get some wet street footage for a film he was shooting in LA. I never got to meet the team yet my footage meshes perfectly. Filmmaking is truly global.
