Episode 76: We’re Rebels in Stormtrooper Disguise

After going undercover as stormtroopers in Star Wars virtual reality combat, Nick and Griffin are joined by their childhood friend and video professional Adam Kruminas. Plus, your questions about cropping 4K video, the easiest way to add storage space to your editing machine, and advice for your first documentary.

At The VOID in Las Vegas, we experienced Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire—a particularly immersive virtual reality game.

Thank you Chris Johnston for setting us up with your studio, and to camera operator Sam Seeger!

Although our friend Adam has access to pricier broadcast equipment, he prefers lightweight gear for some shoots—the sub-$100 Tzumi SteadyGo gimbal to stabilize his 4K mobile phone. He’s also using an inexpensive MAONO lavalier microphone for audio, and often a selfie stick as a tripod substitute. I personally think Adam would really enjoy my favorite, simple piece of gear—the Pedco Ultra Clamp. *ding*

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.
