Heading 3

creating worthwhile movies

Products we use and why

Written By Marty McGinley
I had so many options on which Camera we wanted to use in production (our first being the Wanting) and after months and months of research we picked the Canon Eos C300 Mark II and we are not disappointed.

The EOS C300 Mark II is a new 4K video camera allowing filmmakers and broadcast producers to realise their creative vision in stunning cinematic detail. Building on the unprecedented success of the acclaimed EOS C300, the more rugged EOS C300 Mark II features an advanced imaging engine with dual DIGIC DV5 processors, new professional codecs and outstanding dynamic range, making it the most capable, flexible and accessible Cinema EOS video camera to date.

With the ability to record 10-bit 4:2:2 files internally at up to 410Mbps in 4K, or 10/12-bit 4:4:4 files in 2K/Full HD, with up to 15 stops of dynamic range, the EOS C300 Mark II provides footage suitable for extensive post-production work, producing crisper images across the full colour spectrum with reduced “colour bleed”. The camera offers professional filmmakers and broadcasters alike the very best image quality, recording 4K in both broadcast (3840 x 2160) and DCI cinematic (4096 x 2160) resolutions.
Final Draft 10
After spending the first 3 months using Adobe Story to write our script, I really needed something that had a bettr flow to it when writing.

I tried the trial of Final Draft 10 and all I can say is WOW!  Clearly, the Story Map becomes exponentially more useful once you start filling in your scenes, but that is not the only new feature in Final Draft 10 that facilitates the writing process. Writing a Screenplay can NOT get any easier than this. 
Final Draft 10 – is it worth it? That,, depends on you, your wallet and your writing style.  If you are an outlining fanatic, someone who struggles to write to a set page count or, perhaps more commonly, someone whose scripts tend to become stale somewhere in the middle and lose the interest of readers, the new features on Final Draft 10 are for you. Or if you don’t own Final Draft yet, then yes, by all means, buy this product. Because the truth is that experienced readers can tell the nuanced differences with Movie Magic Screenwriter, Celtx, Trebly, Scriptly and Final Draft; and if you’re not going to take yourself seriously as a writer, no one else will.

So Excited for Final Draft 11 and to see what has changed.
