Who is Kurt you ask?
Kurt Lancaster is a digital filmmaker, shooting both documentaries and short fiction screened at national and international festivals.
His research includes examining and experimenting ways in which fiction and documentary storytelling on the web can be designed to create compelling narrative experiences—as rich and diverse as films and novels. As part of this research, he also explores new ways to apply digital storytelling to online journalism.
In addition, Kurt also consults for the Pulitzer prize winning international newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor—training their reporters on video journalism for the web.
About “DSLR Cinema”
“A huge thank you to Kurt Lancaster for giving a voice to HDSLR in this new trail-blazing book.” -Shane Hurlbut, ASC (DP of Terminator Salvation)
“This book should be in every camera bag. A rich, comprehensive, and poetic examination of how filmmakers and cinematographers are creating stunning moving imagery with HDLSRs.” -Rodney Charters, ASC (DP of TV series, 24).
“Kurt has written a masterpiece in HDSLR books-something that everyone starting to make a movie should read.”-planetMitch (www.planet5D.com)
“It tells me exactly what I want to know – how to get the LOOK that I need. Hats off to the author for tackling this subject. It make the book INVALUABLE for the DSLR filmmaker.” -Julian Grant, Producer/Director
“It will spread the revolution and introduce people to this way of thinking…it would be a must read for anyone who has been filming for a year or two and still thinks in the old ways of looking through a camera.” -Andrew Jones, Cinematographer
New Podcast Page
In the past, we've been sending you off to another location to see the podcasts – how silly of us! Now, we've made a section of the planet5D site with all of the previous planet5D podcast archives – and now you can give us feedback by rating them as well.
New Live page
We've also added a new planet5D live page. We're still going to be using UStream, however, with the problems we had with their chat, we've switched to a new IRC based chat that will give us more control and fewer problems. It is integrated into the live page – so you can see the live broadcast and the chat all in one spot. Please don't go to the UStream page to watch a broadcast – we won't be monitoring that chat room!
As a benefit, we've also created a new page for the HDSLR chat room which is open 24 hours a day for conversations around the world. You can join that at any time – people pop in and out around the clock.
Who are we going to have on the show?
Here is a list of the live conversations we have scheduled right now. Please subscribe to the calendar to get all the updates (see below on how to accomplish that). We've got a great line up in work – we'll be talking to movie makers, industry leaders, manufacturers, and photographers using these great cameras.
NOTE: This schedule is still tentative, there are things that pop up all the time – so please keep your eye on the podcast schedule page for the latest updates.
Subscribe to the planet5D HDSLR calendar so you don’t miss an event!
Since we've got a new sponsor for the podcasts – Kessler Crane and the Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly – we thought we'd help you subscribe to the podcast and HDSLR event calendar so you'll always know what is coming up!
This works for iCal and Google Calendar, but I don't know how to do it for Outlook and others. maybe someone could add the instructions for those in the comments?
Our new sponsor is Kessler Crane
I'm so excited about having Kessler on board and starting up these podcasts again!
I really do enjoy sitting down with folks and learning about them and what they're doing. I hope you enjoy the conversation too – and since you can ask questions in the chat room, I hope you feel a part of the whole event! Please stop in and meet everyone!
