@TedHope — Wohoo! Nice move, congrats to the entire team!

@maryjaneskalski — “Quotidian”? Jee, didn’t know the French “quotidien” had such a direct translation in English, thanks!

 +  2016-07-02 19:34

@CarloChatrian — Wow! Quite an upgrade! Kudos!

 +  2016-07-01 19:12

@jgrahamc Ha! Yes indeed.

 +  2016-06-27 15:50

Do you think #meaning produces an #emotion? Or, absence of meaning (#information) produces an emotion?

 +  2016-06-23 07:02

Amateur #photographer’s… stop hoping #photography lessons from pros will help. You either don’t shoot enough or your #talent is elsewhere.

 +  2016-06-21 23:37

@gak_pdx — How about Sweden?

 +  2016-06-21 02:17

@LAMisoSoup @THR — Folding @BromptonBicycle any day. 55 mins. 1 hr is the cut-off circle for me. Bu to Pasadena is a bit too far ;).

 +  2016-06-17 12:37

@jgrahamc Yep, but it’s artificial. Like “oil painting is better than watercolor cause it’s slower”. Or Capote denigrating Kerouac typing ;)

 +  2016-06-17 10:28

@jgrahamc — Totally! I don’t get it when people write by hand, with shrewd pride. I/O bottleneck.

 +  2016-06-16 03:13

@elonmusk — Persist! Iterate, keep the hope. Any way to model it better in software?

 +  2016-06-13 12:11

To live meaningfully is to be at perpetual #risk and outside of the #comfort zone. What is the risk for you?

“Running a start-up” —or an #indiefilm —“is like eating glass and staring into the abyss”— @WestCoastBill — But I still think it’s worth it.

 +  2016-06-09 17:40

@TedHope — Yep, very nice of them to share it. By the way, the presentation you’d been straining your neck to see:

 +  2016-06-09 14:36

( the detailed numbers of the @EuAvObservatory presentation available here: )

 +  2016-06-09 14:30

Great #Euro #film distribution conf by @EuAvObservatory at #Cannes2016 with always good @MichaelGubbins & @TedHope:

 +  2016-06-07 12:35

@TedHope 1) personal relationship (know the people) 2) concrete before / after examples 3) metrics (financiers love numbers!)

 +  2016-06-02 05:57

The new @Panavision #8K DXL #film #camera looks quite good, esp. with the Primo 70 line lenses: . #Steadicam ready.

 +  2016-05-29 07:59

@RoyPrice — Mmm… 1) rest on laurels syndrome 2) most local US consumers can’t compare (and complain) 3) Asian OCD culture 4) oil pricing

 +  2016-05-27 15:37

People are so busy from high school to retirement… have no time to search for the #meaning / #purpose of their life until it’s too late.

#KeepCalm and let the #Swiss guy handle it. Although the font should have been #Helvetica ;).

@nyindieguy — Yep, I already told you it was great. It really was a good summary, the key points.

 +  2016-05-23 12:07

I hope today is the last day to be woken by the #Cannes2016 #alarmClock. #IndieFilm in #Paris sure is mellow, right?

 +  2016-05-22 23:47

I think #KenLoach’s “#IDanielBlake” Palme at #Cannes2016 is well-derserved. One of his best, with #RiffRaff. A so-so selection this year.

 +  2016-05-18 20:48

#VoD #distribution conference by @LeCNC with @Amazon… excellent intro by @nyIndieGuy. Weird questions from public.

Well, @kenloach69 stays true to himself. Just seen a premiere of #IDanielBlake at #Cannes2016. Bleak but important #film on #UK #society.

 +  2016-05-12 07:41

#Cannes2016… Kinda #rise and kinda #shine.

 +  2016-05-06 14:29

@vrizov — Жалко. Maybe just before @TIFF_NET? I should fly in NYC before it, well, should as in “if things go as planned”.

 +  2016-05-06 14:26

@gak_pdx—Honestly, I kinda don’t see me with that. Here’s me back in the day. Still the same behind-elbow tuck today

 +  2016-05-04 00:14

@gak_pdx — Cool, man! I’m still waiting to try out the whole concept, have been shooting with a Zenit strap for 20 years :D.

 +  2016-05-01 18:19

@ellardent — Test with yet another new sofa :). Return if negative.

 +  2016-05-01 18:18

@TedHope — They can learn the rather standard Anglo-Saxon practice of 1 film = 1 LLC. And that company names can be fun :).

 +  2016-04-20 03:50

@jes_chastain @AngelenoMag — Of course we do, but why did you guys have to choose the least realistic way to hold a rangefinder? :/

 +  2016-04-18 08:47

When would you like to meet at @Festival_Cannes? It’ll be busy :). Let’s schedule. Please me

 +  2016-04-16 19:52

@dom_at_bellota — Hey, thanks! Will definitely have a look, being a runner myself.

 +  2016-04-08 13:27

At #France-Brazil #film coproduction round-table in Paris with @LeCNC. IMO all #BRIC countries function similarly ;)

 +  2016-04-08 07:35

@gak_pdx—The winner’s hubris, ya know. Sad, but happens all the time through human history. Steve was kinda the antidote to that, sometimes.

 +  2016-04-06 19:08

Wow. OK, I need to audit this calmly, but potentially great news for the non-techies I talk to.

 +  2016-04-06 14:40

@gak_pdx — Oh man, don’t get me started on the iPhone :D.

 +  2016-04-06 14:39

@gak_pdx @venunarla — OK, we agree on this one :D. It just needs to be clear and budgeted up front (money / time / people). No surprises!

 +  2016-04-06 14:34

@gak_pdx @venunarla —Personally, I don’t think it’s in the “perceivable” category. More of a subconscious “feel”. Helvetica vs Haas Grotesk?

 +  2016-04-06 14:30

@gak_pdx @venunarla You mean “back-of-the-fence obsession’s fine if you have the budget for it / aim for the high-end, otherwise, it’s bad?”

 +  2016-04-06 14:25

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Thanks! Read it. Yes, agree with Ben Einstein. Similar to how things happen in other industries.

 +  2016-04-06 14:17

@gak_pdx @venunarla — My opinion is back of the fence painting is worth mostly for the team, for the pride. I write PHP/SQL no-one sees.

 +  2016-04-06 14:14

@gak_pdx @venunarla — That’s weird. Apple didn’t start out perfect and flawless.

 +  2016-04-06 14:13

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Smart design == a lot more than just detail obsession :D (taste, ergonomics, prototyping, iteration, testing, etc.)

 +  2016-04-06 14:09

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Ah, yes, that, I totally agree with. Bad idea. It’s like shooting Star Wars with 1 M budget. Something’s got to give.

 +  2016-04-06 14:07

@gak_pdx @venunarla — It’s subtle, and yes, maybe not worth it. But then, what’s worth it to you / your team /subcont? This should be clear.

 +  2016-04-06 14:05

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Maybe detail-obsession should be spelled out before the start of the project? I do with mine, plan and budget for it.

 +  2016-04-06 14:04

@gak_pdx @venunarla — It didn’t ruin the film, though.

 +  2016-04-06 14:04

@gak_pdx @venunarla Like Tarkovski asking to remove dandelions from a Stalker scene, invisible to the camera, but “felt” subliminaly.

 +  2016-04-06 13:58

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Oh! Late decisions? No, that’s a bad idea. You’re either fussy from the start or you’re not, it should be clear.

 +  2016-04-06 13:56

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Sorry about that, I may be misinterpreting something you say.

 +  2016-04-06 13:55

@gak_pdx @venunarla — OK, let’s get back on track. We’re talking about the approach to manufacturing and design, the processes, right?

 +  2016-04-06 13:54

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Well, as you said earlier, it really depends on the product / service. Plus the end-goal. Survive or excel?

 +  2016-04-06 13:52

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Agree. However, it’s so much easier to sell low _or_ high end products than mid-range.

 +  2016-04-06 13:48

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Well, yes, mediocrity prevails any day, law of large numbers, stats average, entropy et al. Not newsworthy :D.

 +  2016-04-06 13:44

@gak_pdx @venunarla — Agree. Also depends on the culture. In Switzerland, craftsmanship / repairability / insides are part of the norm.

 +  2016-04-06 13:42

@gak_pdx @venunarla — The first one, sure. The subsequent releases flooding the market? Less sure ;). Buyer segmentation, nothing fancy.

 +  2016-04-05 16:38

@venunarla @gak_pdx I admit I know little about Nest’s processes, so I might not be best for a debate. In film, these hidden details matter.

 +  2016-04-05 15:58

@gak_pdx — Agree on the delays and costs. Disagree on morale. How else do you get high-end results? Cosmetic outsides aren’t enough, right?

 +  2016-04-05 12:28

@gak_pdx — Why?

 +  2016-04-04 19:22

Competition to @Canon 17-120, albeit opening at 3,5 vs 2,95 at the wide end. I love options. Next: weatherproofing!

 +  2016-04-04 10:10

@tferriss — Ask the parents (who have even more trouble letting go of books) to adopt them :D. I gave paper-books to my dad, kept digitals.

 +  2016-04-01 13:50

@benoitdanard — Merci pour l’info de l’event, Benoît.

 +  2016-03-31 12:23

@gak_pdx — Agree on the Sinn, although I find the more legible and practical worldwide.

#Documentary producers debate (negotiate :) with @VinceLeclercq of @LeCNC @CinemaDuReel moderated by @Dom_at_Bellota

@gak_pdx — Well, you can, but only when knowing the shrewd reasons behind the US “investment” in Iraq (of both money & people) ;).

 +  2016-03-21 15:30

@zeldman — Mmm… yeah, imagine @IMDb re-asking us all the image files for each film, in higher res, to even remotely making it happen.

 +  2016-03-21 10:52

@dom_at_bellota — Yep, meet you there.

 +  2016-03-21 08:04

Most people mistake #pleasure for #happiness. Once you get the differences between the 2, you’ll move much closer to the latter ;).

 +  2016-03-20 20:07

@TedHope—Got one ready for you. 92 pages. Adventure biopic about a Euro photog, shot in RU FR DE. In English. Mix of Mirror & Trainspotting.

 +  2016-03-19 05:57

@Anton_Bauer — Arf, no, really, I prefer the old-style HC / HCX. Much more compact.

 +  2016-03-18 15:24

So weird. @Google selling @BostonDynamics less than 3 years after buying it? What were they thinking in the first place?

 +  2016-03-17 15:48

Brutal but 100% true. Why #creative #artist’s say “no” to most things / people: —Sorry for my own delays and “nos”!

Something’s wrong with this #system.

 +  2016-02-18 14:37

@gak_pdx — Of course, that’s the Swiss minimalist craziness :).

 +  2016-02-18 14:17

@goodinaroom Excellent advice about excellent scripts. However I guess most want to know how non-excellent content gets a meeting & green ;)

 +  2016-02-14 02:59

@alispagnola—Hmm, thanks for the tip! I forgot this one, did similar variations in Soviet school. Amazing how different my perception is now

 +  2016-02-11 22:46

@gak_pdx — Yes, and I think it’s due to the generalized “abuse of power” bias in humans. The WC janitors love to boss around in similar way.

@DaveVescio — Brown ;).

Ahem… Side-by-side comparison of 17 scenes of @RevenantMovie with scenes from Andrey Tarkovsky’s #film’s:

@AFARfiction — J’arrive dans 30 minutes pour en rajouter :D.

 +  2016-02-02 13:54

Wow, this email from @Relativity’s Kavanaugh to @Netflix’s Sarandos is ugly: — must-read if you’re in #indiefilm

 +  2016-02-01 16:47

OK, I think I’ve got it. Best #film’s are made by #masochist’s. Who else would choose to live in #LA or #Moscow? :D

 +  2016-01-30 06:54

@jspector @Larakate — Hmm, maybe because Twitter is shorter and somehow feels less barrier-ed? I get better conversations here.

 +  2016-01-30 06:35

@fitnessinpost—Oh, thanks! Interesting! Haven’t heard about TBC Consoles. Which model do you have? They have huge flight-control like stuff.

 +  2016-01-30 06:24

@gak_pdx - :) Physics is physics. I thought brake fluid was special, before trying Fairy liquid soap as a makeshift alternative.

 +  2016-01-27 02:09

@fitnessinpost @Adamski I sense the connoisseur! Actually both! @IKEA sells motorized stand-sit Galant for certain countries. What do u use?

Excellent, broad interview of Zygmunt Bauman. Failure of #democracy, #regionalism, interdependence, #socialMedia:

 +  2016-01-25 15:47

Don’t want to go to the #gym? Don’t! Buy a set of adjustable dumbbells, a bench and lift at home! I #exercice while waiting #FCPX to render.

 +  2016-01-23 16:12

@gak_pdx — Yep, @Leica_camera has completely missed the digital turn. Similar to @Kodak. None of the 1950’s avant-garde thinking.

 +  2016-01-23 16:01

@gak_pdx @Zappos_Service—Handling is almost the same wherever you ship, invoicing is auto, customs are a customer’s concern. I’m OK to pay.

 +  2016-01-23 15:58

@gak_pdx @Zappos_Service Well, @BHPhotoVideo’s been shipping to us in Europe since 1998. Zero problems both ways with @UPS. Orders over 20K.

 +  2016-01-23 15:51

So, it’s 2016 and @Zappos_Service still does not ship to #Europe?! Unbelievable.

 +  2016-01-21 23:38

Less than 3% of #indiefilm submitted got selected for @SundanceFest. Out of 4000+ features. Imagine watching them all in 1 year, 11 a day!

 +  2016-01-21 01:42

Finally! According to @Uber, starting tomorrow 08:00, pick-ups directly at the @flyLAXairport will work! Hope it’s not another false start!

 +  2016-01-15 17:02

@goodinaroom — Agree that it has little to do with Blake Snyder and everything to do with marketability (pleasing huge crowds for sales).

 +  2016-01-15 09:23

This is big. Although the #consolidation in our lives and businesses is quite scary.

 +  2016-01-11 03:06

@bonniegillespie — It’s kinda weird, knowing that @Amazon is behind, with their much hyped AWS.

Probably the best “all in one place” article about #ArtificialIntelligence, its #future implications and timeline:

Just a reminder about the main #indiefilm #projectManagement paradigm (which applies to any #project, really):

I admit @Vons_Pavilions’s 24/7 shopping experience wins over @coop_CH & @CarrefourFrance, although product choice (taste) could be improved.

@chrismcquarrie—Agree about the nostalgia / feeling of loss. I felt it when @Kodak filed for 11, even though I had already converted.

 +  2015-12-08 18:07

@chrismcquarrie—To me (and not only), shooting film today is going the extra mile, hence my initial wondering. Esp at night (Vienna, London)

 +  2015-12-08 18:05

@chrismcquarrie—When you say “film’s not hard to use”, do you compare with digital? Exa: a @Panavision on a steadicam is heavier than a RED.

 +  2015-12-08 18:01

@chrismcquarrie — To my eyes, the blacks is the main weakness of film, look at what happened in Green Zone. Kodachrome was cool, though.

 +  2015-12-08 17:57

@chrismcquarrie—I always thought of both as tools, and whichever works best depends on taste and prod style (nimble vs deliberately slow).

 +  2015-12-08 17:54

@chrismcquarrie—OK about the invaluables of digital. I agree about the mechanical shutter. What do you think about @Elysium post-prod grain?

 +  2015-12-08 16:42

@chrismcquarrie—What were the film’s invaluables to you (other than highlights and grain)? Yep, I know about your use of the Alexa XT & 65.

 +  2015-12-08 16:36

@chrismcquarrie @gjlewis10 My original tweet was wondering about your choice given today’s tech, not arguing. Night scenes, action, bikes…

 +  2015-12-08 16:33

@chrismcquarrie—I’ve never rushed to bury a tool I’ve used since 1997. The pros dissapeared for _me_ in 2011. I think _your_ result is great

 +  2015-12-08 16:23

@LordOfSwede—Sure, but in my opinion, the current tech allows smaller, nimbler setups, especially for night scenes and anything that moves.

 +  2015-12-08 16:22

@chrismcquarrie—I respect your choice and did say “whatever works”. What were the pros for you? I switched from film for ISO, size & speed.

 +  2015-12-08 16:04

Still cant wrap my head around @ChrisMcQuarrie having #shot @MissionFilm on #film. Prod hassle. @MadMaxMovie’s smarter. Well, whatever works

@FlySWISS — When is “soon” :D ?

 +  2015-11-19 09:18

@hurlbutvisuals — Are you around LA these days? Let’s meet IRL! I stayed after @AFMofficial .

 +  2015-11-19 09:11

@FlySWISS — GVA-ZRH-LAX. More to come ;) — TV boxes under all seats A and K are a huge disappointment in economy #A340! @Lufthansa’s better.

 +  2015-11-03 15:03

@Lobster_it—Thanks, but clients ask my designs with my photography. I’d be out of your regular price range, I’m afraid (I’ve taken a look).

All other things being equal in #cinema—budget, talent, technical prowess—it’s crew’s #taste that makes a #film mediocre, average or great.

Excellent representation of #transport options and their impact on space in the #city (car / #bike / bus tram):

The greatest challenge of the #indiefilm process is not the #financing or the shoot. It’s getting your #movie seen:

@hurlbutvisuals—Haven’t seen any new stuff, but finally seen Black Sea (partially shot with C500) Have you seen it? Worth a look photo-wise.

@elizabethkarr—Ideally! But @TedHope’d argue you need to be ubiquitous to survive an era of over-abundance and hence need to produce more ;)

Why the general public feels more confortable to comment on #film? Never got as much feedback on #photography. #Cinema = #art of the masses?

@alisonwillmore — Ha ha, yes, typical! That’s one of the reasons there’s the Med and some festival outside. Enjoy ;) .

 +  2015-05-12 16:37

@vrizov—No problem, sorry defaulted to RU. Interesting read! We skipped fests in similar way for but for diff reasons

@ellardent — Ghaa… only now recalled the “king of the hill” thing. Inter-linguistic interference.

 +  2015-04-27 13:15

@ellardent — Thanks! First time to fly into this metaphor. ;)

 +  2015-04-27 12:53

@ellardent — Sorry, what’s “shit hill”? Is it the same as bullshit?

 +  2015-04-26 17:10

@ClareLBinns — Congrats!! 02:52 next time? Or even better, an ultra? :) What’s with the shin, though?

Excellent article by @AdamLeipzig about #indiefilm distribution. With hard numbers. A #cinema project _starts_ with distribution, must-read.

 +  2015-04-24 21:33

True for any city. Imagine how awesome it would be. Yet, it’s the standard view in the middle of a forest or ocean.

@elizabethkarr — Thanks. I’m serious though. We’re writing anyway, why not experiment and flex the neurons? I put the best ones in a folder.

Sad but true. But don’t despair. Write some creative e-mail #prose. Cursed for non-conformism but good for practice.

 +  2015-04-22 22:23

@elizabethkarr—True. My approach is to write creative e-mail prose, not just one-sentencers. Metaphors, jokes, etc. At least some practice.

@paulmac708 — I suspect festivals might have been burned by bad experience with blu-rays in the past, might be second reason. Who shoots SD?

 +  2015-04-14 14:40

@paulmac708 —Exactly! I tweeted exactly the same thing a month ago ( ). Crazy. Even iPhone film is HD. What % is SD?

 +  2015-04-14 14:10

@Directors_UK — Excellent initiative!

 +  2015-04-13 19:24

@ellardent — What I meant was that to switch from 1 form (tech shorthand for crew) to another form (Twitter) is non-trivial for a director.

 +  2015-04-13 19:22

@ellardent — The 3 (shoot/meetings/Twitter) require different form of expression but the intrinsic info is the same, is that what you meant?

 +  2015-04-13 19:15

@ellardent — Sorry, I might. Where do you think I went off-track?

 +  2015-04-13 19:10

@chinoixchinoix — Interesting project!

 +  2015-04-13 19:08

@ellardent — Are you even more eloquent :D ? Seriously, script meetings are different than the shoot, at least for me and directors I know.

 +  2015-04-13 19:05

@ellardent @Directors_UK But really I think and I thank you guys for the discussion, because we might be doing something better, improve.

 +  2015-04-13 19:04

@ellardent @Directors_UK My first reaction to the ? is an example: it’s on my mind. I don’t worry about the shoots as much, in the flow.

 +  2015-04-13 19:02

@ellardent @Directors_UK Another guess to the original ? is directors are worried by other things, and tend to talk about those instead.

 +  2015-04-13 19:01

@ellardent @Directors_UK I don’t say “because it’s a long shot, we’re going to keep tension up by doing X, a variant of Y” — no time!

 +  2015-04-13 19:01

@ellardent @Directors_UK I don’t articulate to crew the same way I would on Twitter. On set, we use shorthands “faster, slower, turn it…”

 +  2015-04-13 18:08

@ellardent @Directors_UK Time warping and emotions manipulation is what I do and can explain as a director, but no one asked me how I do it.

 +  2015-04-13 18:05

@ellardent @Directors_UK That’d require a director to shift into teaching mode. I don’t articulate tension control to others, I just do it.

 +  2015-04-13 17:55

@ellardent — Known examples from your own or others’ scripts?

 +  2015-04-13 17:53

@ellardent—My Twitter audience is different from each of my films’ audience. Example: Kvadrat audience has interest in music, not filmmaking

 +  2015-04-13 17:41

@ellardent @Directors_UK “Break the 180° rule once the space established” without a shot reads banal and unsubstantiated to me. Am I wrong?

 +  2015-04-13 17:38

@ellardent @Directors_UK I’d guess that for directors, DPs and editors, it’s visual. I need to SHOW stuff. Reference to a shot. Maybe link?

 +  2015-04-13 17:37

@ellardent @Directors_UK Well, most anything can be written off to procrastination :)

 +  2015-04-13 17:25

@ellardent @Directors_UK 2)within tweet constrains, we need to either reference already known scenes (reserved for the famous) or generalize

 +  2015-04-13 17:22

@ellardent @Directors_UK My guesses: 1) as directors, we don’t know you’re interested, most questions we’re asked are about the story

 +  2015-04-13 17:09

@ellardent @Directors_UK Haven’t thought of tweeting how I solved scene or editing problems though. Back to your original “why”? Interesting

 +  2015-04-13 15:00

@ellardent — Ha! Dead on. Inversely, directors’ work often reveals more about the person than when you meet in real life. Scary fascinating.

 +  2015-04-13 14:52

@jamesmoran @ellardent — Yeah, this is weird. And often combined with “Directed by” shortly afterwards. Film is a team sport :D.

 +  2015-04-13 14:46

@ellardent @Directors_UK Have you read #Tarkosky’s diaries “Martyrolog”? It’s like an Excel spreadsheet of his debts till dead. Not fun.

 +  2015-04-13 14:42

@ellardent @Directors_UK Art is supposed to be the other way round: Idea > Film …The rest is for the producers :D. In reality, context rules

 +  2015-04-13 14:37

@ellardent @Directors_UK The unglamorous reality of direction: we have to work backwards. Sales > Likes > Views > Marketing > #Film > Idea.

 +  2015-04-13 14:33

@ellardent @Directors_UK Thanks! Well, the hardest is to create original films despite the economics favoring conformity / predictability.

 +  2015-04-13 14:29

@ellardent @Directors_UK I’m a director. When I tweet about the reality of direction, it’s not what people expect, that’s my impression.

 +  2015-04-13 14:24

@Directors_UK @ellardent I guess because few want to hear about the hard stuff. Dicussions of gear or completed #film are easier to read.
