A black light emits “long wave” UV or “UVa”. This is the first step up outside the range of visible light on the spectrum. An analogy for the behavior of light which I like, is frequency as “sharpness.” Low-frequency radiation can’t penetrate the molecular structure of our cells, but it can bump into them and create motion, thus heat. This is like getting rug burn instead of drawing blood. To be cut is to be ionized. Photons break into the molecular structure of our cells causing DNA damage and increasing cancer risk. This cutting only begins to really occur at the “UVb” frequency. Microwave radiation (which is, in fact, less sharp than visible light) can only generate heat. The notion that your oven or cell can give you cancer is a myth. They can only heat your flesh. UVb on the other hand, ionizes..
Black light is only slightly more dangerous than sunlight. But, since UV isn’t visible, it’s very hard to judge how much energy you’re putting in your eyes. Avoid staring at UV lights. Heat can slowly build up if you stare at it for too long. Treat it like the sun, and you’ll be safe. UV paint exploits the high energy of UV to ignite chemical reactions in certain phosphors. UV paint isn’t reflecting light, but radiating new light back, by feeding off the UV. The chemicals are eventually consumed though and this gives UV paint a limited use-time. Different compounds release different colors. The purple that appears in skin, isn’t such a reaction. That color comes from two things. One, UV bulbs do emit a small amount of visible light. Up-exposed, this can become bright enough to appear clearly on-camera. Two, most sensors can see very very slightly into UVa, and render it as purple..
With this info, I encourage you to play around with black light. The Shape of Water used the effect fantastically, generating glowing lines on the creature suit practically. So often such effects are pure CGI, but UV offers a way to do it in-camera. It’s hard though. You must expose for the paint, which is dim, so use fast glass. You’ll also need to get the UV sources close. Treat them like you would a boom-mic. Frame tight and get them as near as humanly possible
Got Focus? Pull this! 👊 Thank you to Rogrigi Belmar and Esteban Rodriguez @esteban_rod from Chile for this image. 😎 What a crafty way to attach a carabiner and a stout wrap pouch. Our newest accessory in the pipeline will cover all those bases and then some. RoboCup will be sending some goodies down south as a small gesture of gratitude for their support. Salud!

Guess what I was asking?
Winner will receive a lifetime supply of Popeyes Poppers.
The house featured on last nights episode of #bargainmansions was also the last house our KP was on, before she started her next adventure as 2nd AD for #queereye
In lieu of a champagne sendoff, we did a proper #productionlife version and used #lacroix 😂
While I wish we could all work together forever, I’m so proud of the ladies in this video for pursuing their goals and ambitions 🤗

Wandering trying to find the production base and feel like I'm in a scavenger hunt as have to keep a look out and the closer you are the more of the arrows you see.. though just double guessed myself as the direction of an arrow 🙄 #productionlife#startofaLongnight#filmwork
Got a phone call Monday. We were out there on Saturday. Shots like these are why I love shooting in Colorado.
Don’t know when/if this piece will be out but had to share because I don’t think these are too shabby for all natural light 🤘.
I love talking production so comment below if you’re interested on the details!

Today I’m doing camera switching and records for @slackhq rehearsal day 1
I want to record audio only. Is this possible?
Most definitely! The voice recorder app on your phone supports our mic, so you could use that, as well as many voice recorder apps on Apple and Google Play.
C'est parti ! 🙂 Après un agréable week-end de Pâques, la semaine s'annonce bien remplie et le travail reprend ses droits... Il n'est pas forcément simple de se remettre au boulot après un week-end prolongé alors, aujourd'hui, j'opte pour une session de travail sur la terrasse. Un très bon moyen de profiter des températures printanières tout en avançant sur mes projets. 😉
Felt so rewarding to see a RoboCup and Plus on a local film set last week. 😎 This one from sold by the @thepanastore with @panavisionofficial decal. Looks so nice. The next accessory for 2019 will be the perfect trio and will be launched on Instagram so follow us to stay informed. Please chime in and let us know what other accessories and functionality you'd like to see from the RoboCup. Thank you all. 🙏
@catherinedholly and @frayforde putting @madhat31 and I together is one of the greatest pairings in modern cinematic history. Just wanted to take a second to say thank you to them and to hype my incredibly talented friend for simply being talented. We’re working on new ways to bring this chemistry back to the big screen. Really, really stupid ways. REAL dumb, but so fun.
The calm before the storm. With challenging locations comes challenging conditions. We all made it through and came out with something great. I had a amazing time shooting with Director @hyla and DP @jessicasteinerdp for the @yballoonmusic music video “Mockingbird.” I can’t thank my good friend @samgoingwest for going out there with me and facing the sand storms. Please take a look at their new music video, you’ll thank me later.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks on the edit. Looking forward to getting out filming tomorrow.
Here is a sneak peak from one of our films. #c300mkii
