Pandora Discovery Den: Hanni El Khatib SXSW 2013

Hanni El Katib performing at the Pandora Discover Den SXSW 2013. Produced by Pandora in association with Discovery Den coverage. We shot and edited this piece. The final, super wide shot at the end was achieved by Jeremey sprinting from in front of the stage, through the crowd, up the street, and up four levels in a parking garage with 5D Mark III mounted on a redrock follow focus rig.

Fix a dead pixel on your DSLR

YouTube Preview Image

We HATE dead pixels. You know what we’re talking about, those annoying little specs on your footage that come from a flaw in your dslr sensor. We do have some kung-fu to “fix them in post”, but that sucks. Render time is a black hole that we don’t like to pile on to. So when we recently discovered a dead pixel in our 7D, we hit the interwebs looking for a way to fix it that does not include losing our camera to the Canon fix it factory for two weeks.

Full disclosure, we have not tried this method yet, but this video is from Charles Trippy seems to be one the most popular solutions to fixing dslr dead pixels. We’re about to try it out. We’ll let you know how it goes.
