Episode 64: SD Card Problems
From Singapore, Griffin describes two recent problems he’s encountered with SD cards. Plus, your questions about the visual grammar of storytelling, pulling focus with electronic lenses, and the lenses I used on my latest film from Japan.
Directed by Errol Morris, The Fog of War is a documentary that features a special camera device called the Interrotron, which allowed former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara to speak directly into the camera during his interviews.
For the footage I shot in Kyoto, Japan, I relied on three Panasonic lenses—the 42.5mm f/1.2, 25mm f/1.4, and 8–18mm f/2.8–4. For Panasonic GH5 V-Log footage, I’ve enjoyed a LUT called VLog_to_V709_Varicam, included in this free zip file of LUTs created by Mitch Lally.
