At the start of every month I take a look at the most popular posts of the previous month. 99.9% of posts are filmmaking related. August 2010 was an amazing month – I topped over 1000 views on two separate occasions because of my Demolition video. Numbers aside, it was an awesome experience and a cool video; check it out below and let me know what you think. Otherwise there is a leaning towards HDSLR posts as I prepare to sell my Panasonic so I can buy a Canon 550D and a new computer. (it will be a sad day when I sell my camera – it has served very well) So here we go …

Talk about good timing and local relevance. There was a lot of hype and anticipation about the Demolition of the Athlone Towers. Fortunately for me I got a brilliant position to film this. This post sky rocketed, getting me to 1500 page views in one day. But that is not the end of it because the video itself was amazing. I posted both on YouTube and Vimeo – getting over 10000 views for the both of them and over 300 Diggs.
I thought it was very cool that a Christian Film leads the way with the RED One Camera. Sherwood Pictures just keep getting better and better at what they do. As for the popularity of the post it is incredible what a difference it makes when it is shared by reputable people with big followings; not only that the Courageous Movie Facebook Page shared the post.
This post was a precursor to the actual demolition. It was put together to let people know what was happening and to build some anticipation about the Cooling Towers Demolition.
Reduser posted a picture of a Auto Focus lens, then suddenly revealing that the photo was taken by a RED Scarlet.
Ever since YouTube announced 4K support I have been looking for a video shot by a RED One, this cute video can be watched on YouTube in 4K glory.
My weekly gathering of interesting links regarding cameras, production, post-production, etc. Including a review of the RED One camera.
The information to this Documentary filmmaking school was sent to me by a friend, also I know people who have attended the other courses available locally. Please check it out, it looks very good.
Some more interesting blog posts related to the filmmaking industry. Lots od DSLR information here.
With my goal to switch over to a video DSLR it is interesting to find these kinds of tutorials that even I can come back to.
Maybe one day, when my dream is realized, I will be putting a RED One together. Well, it may be a RED Epic
