I envy the community over at Cinematography.net. That’s where you’ll find the host of a group of mailing lists that I’m subscriber to. I only lurk on these lists, for they are for professional cinematographers to “talk and exchange ideas about cinematography.”
Every night I receive digest emails summarising the current debates amongst camera assistants, those working on full-resolution digital productions, working cinematographers and those needing to understand post production issues. Emails representing a small subset of all the lists you can subscribe to at cinematography.net.
“There’s something about Cinematographers, and the passion we bring to our work, that gives us a sense of being blood brothers. We have a love and admiration for each other, and a desire to help each other out” Conrad Hall ASC
It’s a pity that I haven’t found a similar place for editors to get together. What do editors need to ask each other? I guess we never need any help!
I suppose it’s up to us to create what we need.
