Seeking help for the PPS videos
« on: 28.04.2019, 09:49:06 »

Like every year we are looking for volunteers and borrowed equipment for the Paw Pet Show video.
This is a very long show and we are always short staffed in-between conventions.

Between conventions (Most important)
  • People providing detailed reviews of videos in editing during the long editing process throughout the year. On camera angle selection, pacing, colours, creating intensity and focus.
  • Obviously any additional camera angles of the show, that people recorded themself.
Any help here could greatly reduce the time until we get a show finished for everyone. Getting feedback and additional eyes during the editing is the single most imporant issue we have and the reason why it takes so long to release the show video.


During EF
  • help in carrying gear, setting things up and tearing down everything before the dances as well as sorting equipment in the hotel room after
  • camera operators just checking focus, exposure, battery and media for purely stationary cameras
  • camera operators with an eye for manual focus and a steady hand in smooth tripod motions across the long hall. Don't worry, you'll be given instructions via headset.

Equipment
This list is fairly specialized but anything on it means we we can do better with the equipment we personally purchased, can borrow or spent our personal money for renting.
  • SSD video recorders and media for either HDMI or SDI (important)
  • Heavy, sturdy tripods
  • Smooth fluid heads for rather light cameras
  • Maybe we'll be short on headsets and long XLR cables for our self-build, wired interkom system
  • for wide shots: bright MFT, Nikon-F or EOS lenses about 100mm Super16 / 150mm MFT / 200mm APS-C / 210mm Super35 / 300mm 35mm small format photo  +/-20%
  • for moving shots: MFT lenses around 200 or 250mm (especially if Panasonic dual IS or dual IS 2) for panning cameras
  • Camera bodies that we can match with Blackmagic and Panasonic GH cameras
  • Anything that can run autonomously as a backstage camera for 3h+ or capture the reaction of the audience when the curtain closes

Detailed planning for this year's recording has started and we could really use
  • Most important: One more volunteer to operate a stationary camera for us. It doesn't need to move, pan, zool or do anything. Just be in focus, not overexpose and keep running.
  • Some camera able to record a 2.5h show in UHD or 4K from the back of the hall (so we don't need to rent one).
  • Some EF or EF-S lens with a focal length between 180mm and 220mm that we could borrow
  • Someone who could pick up a rented camera in Berlin (Near S-Bahn Friedrichstraße) on Friday and return it Monday morning.
  • A Panasonic H-FSA100300E Lumix G Vario 100-300 mm/ F4.0-5.6 II lens (again, so we don't need to rent one). Alternatively the 100-400mm. (It's this specific because is must match the lens on the other side and the distance mandates the Panasonic Dual IS II feature).
  • A volunteer to record closeups with a very simple to operate camera while sitting somewhere near the front.
  • Another heavy tripod would be useful.
  • A helping hand for carrying equipment to/from the room. Especially after the show.
