VIDEO: Think Big Screen

Can you shoot a feature film entirely on Nikon DSLRs and Nikkor lenses?

Over the past few months, director Jim Lounsbury and producer Behren Schulz of Eponine Films have been testing Nikon cameras and Nikkor lenses as they embark on shooting their feature film 'Love is Now' on Nikon for the big screen. At the 2013 Digital Show in Melbourne, they shared some of their findings at the Nikon School Theatre, and we filmed it so anyone who wasn't there can take advantage of some of the discoveries they have made so far.

Shane Burrell of Final Post also shares his thoughts on some key things DSLR Filmmakers should consider to get the best results in Post Production, such as: Workflow and data management, Camera Settings, Focus Issues, Exposure, ISO settings and more.
