Shot On VariCam: get your FREE digital copy now to read in 2020

Shot On VariCam: get your FREE copy now!

There is a lot of content to read in the FREE five issues of Shot On VariCam available from Panasonic. Download the digital magazine to get up to date with the creative uses of the VariCam family.

Carter Hoskins, Director of Broadcast/Cinema/Professional Video Systems, wrote in the Welcome Letter opening the premiere issue of Shot On Varicam that the purpose of the digital publication “is to highlight the creative work filmmakers have produced with the Panasonic VariCam digital cinema cameras”. The first issue, published April 10, 2017, profiled three susscessull Netflix series – Frontier, Master of None and Love – which were all shot with Varicam 35.

The publication didn’t stop at that single article, and accross the 26 pages there is space to talk about projects from filmmakers, technology and, as Carter Hoskins notes,  how “Hollywood’s digital transformation continues in both acquisition and distribution”.

Six months later, the 2017 Fall issue of the e-magazine showed more projects, pointing to, as Carter Hoskins wrote in the Welcome Letter, “A steady increase of high profile VariCam projects from a variety of companies, networks, studios and streaming platforms.” The issue showcases Death Note, shot in 4K RAW by cinematographer David Tattersall, BSC, with VariCam 35 cameras and Codex VRAW recorders, but has, in its 26 pages, much more content that you can either read online, at ISSU, or download to your computer, in pdf format. It’s also possible to read the magazine on your smartphone, using the iOS or Android app.

From Netflix to YouTube

The third issue of Shot On VariCam, published in the Spring of 2018, reveals that content on streaming platforms is leading the way. The cover story, on Netflix’s feature film, 6 Balloons, shows how the indie drama was shot by cinematographer Polly Morgan, BSC, with VariCam 35 cinema cameras. YouTube projects also have space in the 40-page edition of the digital magazine, along with a series of other articles both covering technology and the work of different filmmakers.

Two years after the first release of the e-zine, the fourth issue offers 50 pages with everything from a look at Crazy Rich Asians, shot by DP Vanja ernjul, ASC, HFC in 4K RAW with the VariCam Pure, to how cinematographer Ben Kutchins  (Ozark) created a unique look by designing a LUT to mimic an old Fujifilm stock that he shot still with as a teen. The adoption of EVA 1 by indie filmmakers and the EVA firmware update enabling RAW output with the newly released ProRes RAW are some of the technology stories to be read in the last issue from 2018.

Waiting for next issue

The fifth issue of Shot On VariCam, published in the Spring of 2019, features multiple projects, from the Sundance Film Festival hit centered on the Manson murders, to the comedy feature Late Night, shot in 4K by DP Mathew Clark with the VariCam 35. The 42-page issue covers a series of other stories that reflect the variety of ays filmmakers use the VariCam family of cinema cameras.

While the sixth issue, for the Fall of 2019, has not been published yet, there is a whole lot of content to read in the five issues of Shot On VariCam now available. The different articles published serve as a timeline of the evolution of not only the Panasonic VariCam brand, but the industry as a whole, showing how fast technology as changed during the last years of this decade. As we turn the page and enter a new decade, here is PVC’s suggestion: download the Shot On VariCam publication. Having all this content available to read, anywhere, any moment you have some free time, is a good way to start 2020.

2019 Wisdom from Art of the Cut

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, these images won’t be new to you – though I’ve never put them all in one spot before. If you don’t follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I pull little tidbits of wisdom out of the Art of the Cut interviews and post them there. Usually, there are two or three quotes per interview. Here are almost all of them for the year. (Some of the 120 wouldn’t upload for one reason or another.)

If there’s some awesome piece of wisdom that you love, make sure to go back and read the whole interview. Also, most of these will be making their way into a new “ART OF THE CUT: Conversations with Film and TV Editors VOLUME 2” book, hopefully coming out by the end of 2020.

The first 50 interviews in the series provided the material for the book, “Art of the Cut: Conversations with Film and TV Editors.” This is a unique book that breaks down interviews with many of the world’s best editors and organizes it into a virtual roundtable discussion centering on the topics editors care about. It is a powerful tool for experienced and aspiring editors alike. Cinemontage and CinemaEditor magazine both gave it rave reviews. No other book provides the breadth of opinion and experience. Combined, the editors featured in the book have edited for over 1,000 years on many of the most iconic, critically acclaimed and biggest box office hits in the history of cinema.
