Check Out The Hurlblog

 The Hurlblog is a great resource for filmmakers. Written by both DP Shane Hurlbut and his wife, Lydia, it gives great insight into everything from choosing a camera, to getting along with co-workers. I've worked with Shane a few times. He's a great guy and absolutely hilarious. But aside from that, he's got a great eye and always comes up with fun and challenging shots. Here's a post he did on camera movement. I don't agree with everything he says here, but that's a matter of opinion. Check it out and tell 'em Dollygrippery sent ya.

PS: This is a completely different note, but to keep things short, I'll just tack it on here. In the spirit of "Credit Where It's Due," I just want to clarify that I (D) didn't work on Pacific Rim. That was Azurgrip, who helps me keep things running around here and pops up from time to time. Check the post signature after each post to see who wrote it.  I've gotten a few emails saying how great the movie was, and while I'm glad to hear it and can't wait to see it myself, I actually had no hand in making it. (Though I wish I had).
