Jeffery wrote a kind note, but I didn't do much, just offered a few things I learned the hard way.
Jeffery's success came from honestly persuading his client to allow for proper testing and finding/vetting/hiring a small but excellent crew.
It also helps that he is a very positive guy.
Too often all of us hear in forums, reviews or through associates, "that camera doesn't work", or you can't shoot stills and motion effectively, when in my experience I know differently.
Before I bought my original REDs I heard from everyone in LA, they shut down in heat, they don't work, they're really not 4k, etc. etc., when in my real world use in very harsh conditions, I found the opposite.
The only issues I've had is when you don't have the right crew, or time to set up professionally.
Not to turn this into cameras, but Jeffery touched on something that motion portraits are trending.
It's not just portraits, it's a part of our world as content creators which kind of bugs some purists, but it's moved from request to expect.
Knowing this I'm surprised that the 1dxII doesn't get that much love in the internet world. It's probably the perfect camera for most going from stills to motion, especially with the pdaf autofocus in motion.
It really works, Canon has very easy to grade color and even though it's an 8 bit camera, it shoots at a very high bitrate which is as important as bit depth.
The fact it uses an older motion jpeg codec is perfect because it does allow a high bitrate with minimal compression. Most people don't know that when they watch a movie the dcp the theatre plays is essentially motion jpeg 2000.
Anyway, thanks Jeffery and Chris.
Kind words, though Jeffery proved how to work make it work for him and his client.
