    so, i'd really appreciate you film/vid dweebs (hi kilo and rage *& chickenbone) hookin' up mofo brown with some resources..anything (web/print/journals) you've
    found helpful/informative/wicked.

    hows res mag? i saw one the other day and did a quick
    flip-squat on that batch, looked informative(+ there was a very
    cool thing on polaroid transfers)..

    ps-anyone hit up a film co-op or have insights? i'm severely considering
    joining the place in town, its cheap and seems pretty fat ass.
    thanks boys.

    who you calling dweeb?

    www.ifctv.ca/resources/film_co-ops.asp - booo-ya!

    you have any specific questions besides the one I'm about to answer...?

    Film Co-Op's a great no matter what.
    You get gear for cheap, usually enough to shoot an entire feature
    if you're so inclined. There's tools you could never afford to collect
    yourself and a huge pool of human resources. Most people are always
    volounteering to get in on other people's projects, and so should you.
    You'll end up getting crew for the cost of food and transport.

    First off it's 'nerd' not dweeb. Anywho, I don't know what you are trying to do in sepcific with film/video, but here's a great link for cinematographers:

    The American Society of Cinematographers

    Check out the resources section..They also produce the magazine American Cinematographer. Fucking awesome mag.

    I'd like to add some frustration:

    Even if your business and employees are covered by the FLSA, there are a number of exceptions to the overtime requirements. Here are some of the more common ones:

    - Outside salespeople -- those who regularly work away from your place of business making sales or taking orders
    - Independent contractors
    - Certain computer specialists, including computer system analysts, programmers and software engineers, provided they are paid at least $27.63 per hour
    - Employees of seasonal amusement or recreational businesses
    - Farmworkers
    - Transportation workers
    - Newspeople
    - Employees of motion picture theaters

    ^ unions can be a bitch.

    The mag -rage- mentioned is a great read
    and I used to have a subscription but I found
    it to be way more than I ever wanted to know
    about lighting. Light grids are only so interesting
    unless you're doing it (which I'm not).

    dont forget this thread!

    oh man...

    if you're just looking for the bare basics,
    head to the library and grab a book.
    You're in school now right? I'm sure the
    school library will have all the basic info
    you need. Just make sure the books were
    made in the past 5 years (unless it's not at
    all about the technology involved). cool.

    i realize its a wide open request, but
    by basic, i don't mean shooting thirds and how
    to turn the power on bro...

    cool links related to video/film..do i really need
    to be super specific? whatever ya got...

    Yea, kaySEV is right. Start out with the books.

    I know my local community college has some film classes. You actually get a 16mm Bell and Howell. Pretty cool. I work wierd hours so I have not been able to take the class.

    If you have something like that in your area I stress you pursue it to the fullest.

    Also, you'll need some back up funds. Cameras, film, lights, processing are NOT cheap, by any means.

    Here is some jawn online you could read up on for starters:

    - 8mm Film Format Metadirectory

    - New England Film

    - some old manuals (perfect for a thread of yours) ;)

    ADD ON:

    Go to a Borders and check the FILM book section.. TONS of books about the industry. The best part is that you can sit in the store all day, read them, and leave.
