We do this with articles like “My Go To Lighting Package Part Two: The Basics“, “Is Filmmaking Fair?“, and our “Xeen Prime Lens Test: 24mm, 50mm, 85mm“. Our articles introduce readers to pioneering technologies they can use on set, as well as industry insights from a professional with over 25 years of experience.

 

“I am constantly blown away with Shane’s generosity of time and knowledge. I don’t see anyone else in the industry doing anything anywhere near what he does for us. I’ll never be able to repay him. And then there’s all of us here in the Inner Circle that are super generous too. Overwhelmed with gratitude…” ~ Alex Fuerst
