PODCAST: Designing & Discovering The Perfect Cinema Lens With Ryan Avery

By Noam Kroll

Cinema lenses are one of the most crucial tools in any filmmaker’s toolkit, yet many filmmakers have a limited knowledge of how glass will affect their image from both a creative and technical standpoint.

In this episode, I interview Ryan Avery – the founder of Veydra lenses – who designed one of the most sought after lens kits for independent filmmakers: The Veydra Mini Primes.

Over the course of this interview, Ryan details exactly what goes into designing and developing high quality cinema glass, what optical qualities to look for when purchasing lenses, the future of lens technology, and much much more.

PODCAST: The 5 Most Critical Color Grading Mistakes Made By Filmmakers

By Noam Kroll

Color grading tools have become more accessible than ever, and as a result filmmakers are becoming hyper aware of the role that color plays in their work. Countless filmmakers are now training themselves in the art and science of color grading as a means to elevate the quality of their work without needing to rely on post-houses.

That said, the color process as a whole still poses a steep learning curve, and many filmmakers jump into their color processes before being fully aware of the technical and creative challenges that they will be faced with.

In this episode, I address 5 of the most common and most critical color grading mistakes made by filmmakers. Topics covered include: the importance of a correct order of operations, how to approach shot matching, why to never overprotect dynamic range, and much more.
