"Plus, I don't remember the last time Steven Spielberg used... PNGs to create a video.

He, and other professional cinematographers...
"

Last time I checked, Spielberg was a producer and a director -- not a cinematographer. Huge difference between those three positions.

We are not new to the concept, thanks. My comment was sarcastic, so there was no reason for you to "explain" to us the differences. We know them.

In the indie world though, a director is usually the person for all jobs though. For example, my online friend Blake shoots, directs and edits his work by himself. And he's using semi-known actors too, not completely unknowns, and has even two big films on his back. His latest project: http://www.hulu.com/watch/34577/pink-the-series-no-good-deed
Some people like to be involved in the process.

JrezIN's comment implies that Spielberg is a cinematographer. It appears that JrezIN didn't know that there is a dramatic difference between the job of a cinematographer and that of a producer/director.


My comment was sarcastic,

My response was to JrezIN's comment.


In the indie world though, a director is usually the person for all jobs though.

I've been shooting independent films for about 16 years, and I have found that most productions (wisely) employ a separate DP.


For example, my online friend Blake shoots, directs and edits his work by himself.

It is very tough to direct and DP simultaneously -- both positions have to carefully monitor different aspects of the take while the camera is rolling.



Would love to see it, but I don't want to sit through the ad.

By the way, I enjoy reading your camera blogs. Very informative.
