This article has a lot of great info about shooting 4K that I didn’t know about, especially when it comes to post-production costs. It’s from a panel that was done at Sundance in 2014 and you know how I feel about Sundance… but the panel seems pretty good.I’ll probably go back and listen to the entire panel discussion, there is a YouTube link at the end of the article.

Okay this last link has nothing to do with filmmaking, but I grew up down the street from Ursula K. Le Guin and I grew up with her kids. I am a huge fan of her writing. That being said… I self-publish my books and I use Amazon, but I think she makes some really good points. If I am going to buy a book I am going to use other sites for my purchase, and if I can buy directly from the author, all the better.
