Tips for Traveling With Your Production Gear

first_imgTraveling with film production equipment can be daunting, but these tips will help you move efficiently and keep your gear protected.Top image via ShutterstockI’ve traveled with production equipment for out-of-town shoots numerous times — and unfortunately, I’ve encountered a fair share of issues. As a result, I’ve picked up some valuable insight along the way. Traveling with gear poses a variety of challenges — from extra fees to misplaced items — but the tips on this list will help you keep things in check next time you embark on an out-of-town shoot.1. Don’t OverpackImage via TWEAK DigitalFilmmakers know the importance of being prepared. As such, they have a tendency to overpack their gear when traveling for a shoot. While they may know that they’ll only need one camera body and a few lenses, they often opt to bring all sorts of extra components, accessories, audio gear, or other items that likely won’t be of any use to them on set — for that “just in case” scenario.Unless your shoot is in the middle of nowhere, most destinations will permit you to rent extra gear if you need it in a pinch. Not to mention, this is something you’d likely know in advance of your travels. Steering clear of unnecessarily large kits will help you avoid additional fees for overweight baggage, but also the headache of keeping track of gear you won’t even be using in order to prevent losing anything along the way.2. Use Carry-On CasesImage via PelicanLuggage that’s placed in a plane’s cargo area isn’t always handled with care, and the last thing you want to do is put thousands of dollars worth of equipment into harm’s way. To avoid having to do this, simply invest in Pelican cases that are small enough to meet the carry-on baggage specifications. The size requirements for carry-on may vary between airlines, so always be sure to check size requirements before your trip.3. Get Customs ClearancesImage via AirlineReporterIf you’re leaving the country with your gear, you may need to get your equipment precleared by customs to avoid having it held up at the border. For instance, if you live in the United States and you’re returning from a European shoot, customs may ask to see proof that your camera was originally purchased in the U.S. If it was bought overseas, it would likely be taxed to some degree upon entry.If you’re asked for this information at the border but don’t have it, you may not be able to bring your equipment (and more importantly your footage) into the country right away. Different countries will handle scenarios like this differently, so depending on where you’re traveling to and what you’re traveling with, be sure to call customs/border protection before your trip to ensure you have all the documents you need.4. Get InsuredImage via ShutterstockThe unfortunate reality when traveling with equipment is that your gear is far more likely to be damaged on the road, even if you do everything you can to protect it. There are so many unforeseen scenarios that can occur while traveling, some of which may result in multiple airport and airline staff handling your gear — while knowing next to nothing about the equipment. In this way, travel definitely comes with increased risks for damages where your gear is concerned.The best thing you can do is ensure that your equipment is adequately insured. This means double-checking that your current policy covers certain circumstances, such as while you’re in the act of traveling or while the equipment is out of the country. If not, be sure to top up your coverage to include whatever your circumstances require — before you leave.Traveling with gear can be a pretty big headache. In most cases, I recommend renting gear locally to avoid incurring some of the unexpected costs discussed here. But if you absolutely must travel with your own kit, be sure to follow the tips on this list to reduce your potential exposure to damaged or lost equipment.Got any other travel advice for filmmakers and videographers?

I had a fear batting would collapse: Shahid Afridi

first_imgThe World Cup semifinal loss to India continues to rankle Pakistan ODI captain Shahid Afridi, who said he always had a fear that his team’s struggling batting line-up would collapse in the high-voltage match.”I think the way we have been struggling with our batting, there should be a coach to work out with the batsmen,” suggested Afridi after the team arrived here.”I think I had a fear that our batting could collapse, our batting had been struggling from the first match to the last. I will give credit to the bowlers from the first match to the last.”It was only due to the efforts of bowlers that the team which was going to score 300 to 350 runs was bowled out for about 250. This was a great effort by us,” he added.The Pakistan cricket team returned to a warm welcome with fans showering the players with flowers and shouting slogans in support of Afridi. Pakistan lost to India by 29 runs while chasing 261 in the World Cup semifinals.”The Pakistan team has players from Sindh, Punjab, Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. Our only objective was to build up this team in difficult circumstances. Our only goal was to take the team to the top,” said Afridi.Afridi once again criticised Interior Minister Rehman Malik for stating that Pakistani players would be monitored for match-fixing just a day before the match against India.”I don’t think the timing was right. He telephoned me three or four times and he tried to explain things but I could not understand what he was saying as I was busy with my work.advertisementI think he made a mistake and I hope such mistakes aren’t made by anyone in future,” he said.last_img read more

Pep Guardiola Not Planning to Patch Up Manchester City Defence in January Transfer Window

Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. Manchester: Pep Guardiola insists Manchester City will not buy a player in the January transfer window despite admitting he is concerned about his team’s growing list of injuries in defence.The Premier League champions look destined to be without Oleksandr Zinchenko and Rodri until December after the pair reported fitness problems this week. With Aymeric Laporte on the sidelines until well into the new year, Guardiola will be heavily reliant on John Stones and Benjamin Mendy, two defenders whose City careers have been severely hampered by injuries.But while the City manager has expressed his concern, Guardiola insists cash-rich City do not intend spending when the transfer window re-opens at the end of 2019.”I’m a little bit concerned because in a few positions we don’t have enough players,” said Guardiola.”January window I think we are not going to buy. The club didn’t introduce me to the players they thought could help us so without that it’s not going to happen.”Our need is not just for six months it’s for a long time and the important players will not be sold. We are going to stay all the season, I think, with all the players we have right now.”With Rodri having played at centre-half in the past two games until injuring his hamstring against Atalanta in midweek, the emphasis would appear to be on Stones to remain fit and re-establish himself as a starter with City.However, injuries meant the England international has not started consecutive games since February and Stones was in Guardiola’s bad books this week after he was not ready to come on as a substitute against Atalanta.TV images showed Guardiola’s anger at his player and the City manager was still irritated by the incident when asked on Friday.”The guys on the bench know you have to be ready to go out from the first minute,” he said. “Did you see the image? So it speaks for itself.”Zinchenko, injured during the last international window with Ukraine, underwent minor knee surgery in Spain this week and is expected to be out for up to six weeks.His absence will leave the left-back position open for French international Mendy, whose own City career has been plagued by serious knee problems.”He played 90 minutes at Crystal Palace and on Tuesday too, playing 70-75 minutes incredibly against Atalanta and he’s not injured,” Guardiola said of Mendy.”I think it’s coming that he can play regularly. Games, games, games and he will get to his best level.”Still he is not on the level that we believe he can do it but that’s normal. After two seasons out, he needs time”The long list of problems has tested Guardiola’s creativity and managerial skills to the full with the City manager having started the last two games with two central midfielders — Fernandinho and Rodri — at the heart of his defence.”I would prefer it if all the players had no injuries but I have to do it,” Guardiola added.”I said when Laporte happened that it is what it is. We can’t stop and complain, ‘oh what bad luck.'”We have good players in the squad. In a few positions there are not many but we have incredibly good players. We’re going with them.” footballFootball transfer windowmanchester cityPep Guardiola First Published: October 26, 2019, 4:46 PM ISTlast_img read more

Lionel Messi in Israel to Play Uruguay, Despite Rockets and Boycott Threats

first_imgTel Aviv: Lionel Messi finally arrived in sports-crazed Israel on Sunday, after a Palestinian protest campaign derailed his previous visit and the latest round of cross-border fighting in Gaza threatened to scare him off once again.Messi and his Argentine teammates are in the Holy Land to play an international friendly against his Barcelona teammate Luis Suarez and the Uruguay national team. It’s a game that has been just as eagerly anticipated for its political ramifications as it has for its sporting star power. Suarez and his teammates arrived on Saturday after a friendly match in Hungary while Messi touched down Sunday after a direct flight from Saudi Arabia, where Argentina beat Brazil 1-0 in another friendly.A year ago, Argentina abruptly canceled a World Cup warmup match in Jerusalem, saying it was concerned for the safety of its players. The decision followed protests in the West Bank and other countries amid outrage that Messi would play in Israel. Those demonstrations included threats to burn Messi jerseys and brandished images of the Argentina national team’s jersey stained with red paint resembling blood. As a result, the FIFA football governing body banned Palestinian football federation president Jibril Rajoub for a year for “inciting hatred and violence” against Messi.Monday’s match was nearly nixed as well after last week’s two-day eruption of violence following Israel’s targeted killing of a Palestinian militant commander in Gaza. The Islamic Jihad militant group responded by firing hundreds of rockets into Israel, setting off warning sirens as far north as Tel Aviv – the site of Monday’s match. The fighting killed 34 Palestinians, including 15 civilians.Both Argentina and Uruguay were reportedly on the verge of calling off their participation.But they eventually decided to play following intense, high-profile negotiations with Sylvan Adams, a Canadian-Israeli billionaire who’s responsible for staging the match in Israel.The Palestinian BDS group PACBI condemned Monday’s match, accusing Argentina and Uruguay of crossing the “Palestinian nonviolent picket line, allowing Israel to use the beautiful game to sports-wash its crimes against Palestinians.”Adams, who describes himself as a “self-appointed ambassador-at-large” for Israel, told The Associated Press that he’s looking to counter the country’s image, and has sponsored previous sporting and cultural events in the country. Last year, he brought the opening stages of the Giro d’Italia cycling race to Israel, and this year he paid more than $1 million for Madonna to perform at the Eurovision song contest in Tel Aviv, overcoming pro-Palestinian calls to boycott the events.The grassroots BDS movement, advocating for boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israel, notched one of its greatest achievements to date by helping pressure Messi and Argentina out of last year’s match.A spooked Argentine squad bolted at the last moment, even after direct a plea from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri asked them to reconsider.Israel’s sports minister Miri Regev was widely criticized for politicizing the event by insisting it be played in contested Jerusalem and by trying to orchestrate a photo-op with Messi.Argentina is among the most popular brands in Israel and Messi, a six-time FIFA player of the year, is an icon here as well. But the disappointment over the cancellation led many Israelis to root against him in the World Cup and rejoice in Argentina’s early exit.This week’s match was promoted with far less fanfare, and yet Middle East politics played a role once again with the deadliest round of violence in Gaza in years.Match organizers were in constant touch with the teams throughout the fighting. Even after an informal cease-fire was reached on Thursday, the game remained in question. But with Uruguay’s head coach already in Tel Aviv, and Israeli football players and officials lobbying their South American colleagues, it was salvaged.For Messi, this will be his second match after returning from a three-month ban imposed by South American Football body CONMEBOL after he made accusations of corruption following the Copa America tournament in Brazil in July.

Glenn McGrath proud of James Anderson for breaking his 11-year-old record

first_imgAustralian pace bowling legend Glenn McGrath said he is proud of James Anderson after the Englishman became the most prolific pace bowler in Test cricketAnderson clean bowled Mohammed Shami to seal England’s 118-run victory over India in the fifth and final Test of the series at the Oval on Tuesday. Shami’s wicket was Anderson’s 564th Test wicket and it took him past McGrath, who held the record of most wickets in Tests by a pacer for 11 years.”I was proud to hold it for as long as I did – for it to be beaten by somebody like Jimmy Anderson is great,” McGrath, whose haul of 563 came from 124 matches, told BBC Radio 5 live.Anderson, who made his Test debut in 2003, achieved the feat on his 143rd Test match is currently the fourth highest wicket-taker in Test cricket behind Muttiah Muralitharan (800), Shane Warne (708) and Anil Kumble (619).Also read – Virat Kohli praises ‘relentless’ James Anderson for landmark achievement”I have a lot of respect for Jimmy. He’s been an incredible bowler for a long time. To have played well over 140 Tests and just keep running in, day in, day out, and remain at the top of his game, yeah, I’m very proud Jimmy’s got there,” McGrath said.Earlier, he had said that the moment Anderson crosses the mark, he is likely to end as the pacer with most number of wickets.”It is only a matter of time now before he gets there and I will be getting in touch with him as soon as he does to say well done. I have an awful lot of respect for Jimmy. Good luck to him. I believe once he goes past me he will never be beaten,” McGrath told Sportsmail.advertisementThe moment @jimmy9 became the most profilic quick bowler in Test history!Scorecard/Videos: https://t.co/oC6HGlm9nh#EngvInd #ThankYouChef pic.twitter.com/OJpuOTnwEOEngland Cricket (@englandcricket) September 11, 2018Also read – Joe Root pays tribute to Cook and Anderson after series win over IndiaSpeaking about the achievement, Anderson said: “Im happy Cookie was on the field to see that wicket. I am just happy to win the game, I wasn’t thinking about it. When Pant and Rahul put on that partnership it looked like they may get close so my job was to hold an end up. I didn’t think Id bowl 14 overs from that end. Thankfully Joe let me take the new ball eventually which gave me a chance to get that wicket.”India captain Virat Kohli and England’s skipper Joe Root also paid their tribute to the Lanachsire pacer.”It has been fun. We haven’t had any sort of arguments through the series. It has been nice and competitive. We have had a word here and there, it has been sarcastic…nothing too serious. As a cricketer after a stage, you want to be pushed, you want to be tested and guys like him test you all the time. He has been very relentless with his skills and that is why he stands at the top of the fast bowlers leaderboard and he deserves it totally.Also read – Anderson surpasses McGrath to become 4th highest wicket-taker in Test cricketHe bowls all types of deliveries, which is a massive asset to have. He deserves what he achieved today because he has worked hard for it and has been relentless and patient and he has challenged not only me but a lot of batsmen in world cricket especially in these conditions and hats off to what he has achieved,” said Kohli at the post-match press conference.”I’m sure there is more to come from Jimmy. The scary thing is that you feel he still has a couple of years left. In my opinion, he is the best he has ever been,” Root said.last_img read more

Serena Williams’ coach advocates change in rules after US Open controversy

US Open Tennis 2018 Serena Williams Share on Facebook Serena Williams’ coach says in-match coaching should be allowed in tennis to help the sport’s popularity.Patrick Mouratoglou, who admitted he used hand signals to try to help Williams during her controversial loss in this year’s US Open final, posted a statement to Twitter on Thursday saying that coaching would let “viewers enjoy it as a show” and “ensure that it remains pivotal in the sport.” Mouratoglou also pointed out that other non-team sports such as boxing and golf permit athletes to consult someone during competition.“I have never understood why tennis is just about the only sport in which coaching during matches is not allowed,” Mouratoglou wrote.center_img US Open tennis Support The Guardian Since you’re here… US sports news Share on LinkedIn Serena Williams rails at umpire as superb Naomi Osaka wins US Open Share on Twitter Mouratoglou added that coaching goes on anyway. “It is a very basic truth that the vast majority of tennis coaches are actually coaching on court, despite the rules,” he wrote. “Look at how many times players look towards their boxes during a match. Some do it after every single point.” Mouratoglou thinks part of the appeal of allowing coaching is that it would help get viewers “emotionally involved.”“You want spectators and TV viewers to have opinions about the players and the coaches and to know who they like and don’t like. Watching the interactions between players and coaches is a very good way of achieving this,” he wrote. “Moreover, emotions run high when coaches talk to their players during matches. Sometimes the players don’t like to hear what their coaches are saying, but this all adds to the drama, which creates engagement on social media.”Debate around on-court coaching was sparked when chair umpire Carlos Ramos gave Williams a code violation after Mouratoglou gestured in her direction during her loss to Naomi Osaka at the US Open in September. The WTA does allow coaching during women’s matches at other tournaments. The tour’s CEO, Steve Simon, said in the aftermath of the US Open final that it “should be allowed across the sport.”The sport’s various governing bodies and grand slam tournaments have been looking at the issue, with some sounding more willing than others to consider permitting coaching. Wimbledon, for example, has made clear that it is “fundamentally opposed to any form of coaching during a match.” Share on Messenger Reuse this contentlast_img read more

The Wright start Ohio State mens basketball beats Wright State in season

If the first possession of the season was any indication of how the rest of the season may go, the Ohio State men’s basketball team is destined for success. Sophomore forward Jared Sullinger won the tip, the Buckeyes worked the ball inside, kicked it out and swung the ball around the perimeter to wide-open sophomore guard Aaron Craft who buried a three-pointer. OSU led 3-0 and never looked back. The No. 3-ranked Buckeyes dominated visiting Wright State on both ends of the floor and defeated the Raiders, 73-42. Head coach Thad Matta said he was pleased with the team’s performance. “Obviously, a good win for us opening up,” he said. “…Probably a little bit better effort of what we were looking for.” Sophomore Lenzelle Smith Jr. joined an OSU starting lineup that included Sullinger, Craft, senior William Buford and sophomore Deshaun Thomas. Sullinger led the way for the Buckeyes, scoring 19 points and nine rebounds. The Buckeyes struggled to find their offensive rhythm early on, allowing the Raiders to keep the score closer than some may have expected. OSU led, 19-14, with 7:30 remaining in the first half. “We were kind of sluggish in the first half,” Buford said. “I think some people had some jitters and needed to get the nervousness out of them.” With less than four minutes remaining in the half, Buford threw a pass to sophomore forward J.D. Weatherspoon, which Weatherspoon caught in mid-air and flushed through the hoop, giving OSU a 29-17 lead. “They came out with their best punch,” Sullinger said. “As soon as we took that punch we started elevating our game to a whole other level and we just kept pushing.” OSU’s defense was stout. Craft’s three first-half steals stifled the Raiders and helped the Buckeyes take a 34-20 lead into the locker room despite shooting 40 percent from the field and 29 percent from behind the arc. Buford struggled offensively in the first half, shooting 1-of-4 from the field, but scored six quick points to ignite the OSU offense as part of a 10-0 run to start the second half, giving the Buckeyes a 44-20 lead. Buford finished with 13 points and four assists. As OSU extended its lead, Matta began to look to his bench to finish the job. Sophomore guard Jordan Sibert and junior forward Evan Ravenel were the first Buckeyes to come off the bench, but all 12 players on the roster saw action. Matta said he was pleased with the bench players’ performance, but added that playing twelve players is not going to become a trend. “The rotation could get a little bit tighter,” Matta said, “but I thought the young guys did some pretty good things out there.” OSU next plays No. 10 Florida on Tuesday at 8 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio. read more

Rising Temperatures Causing Oceans To Release CO2

first_imgWhile oceans absorb much of our CO2 output — somewhere around 30 percent — when the temperatures rise the reverse happens, and that CO2 is then released back into the air. Previously scientists believed that this process would take anywhere from 400 to 1400 years, but it turns out things could happen much, much sooner.“We now think the delay is more like 200 years, possibly even less,” Tas van Ommen from the Australian Antarctic Division, told New Scientist.The research team looked at ice cores in Antartica and dated CO2 bubbles found in the ice to come up with the 200 year estimate. Their findings, of course, aren’t 100 percent certain, and the potential difference could be by around 200 years. Which means that while the output of ocean CO2 may not happen for 400 years, it could also be happening any day now.AdChoices广告last_img read more

Mondasian Cybermen Return for Doctor Who Finale

first_imgPeter Capaldi faces a favorite foe in his final chapters as the Twelfth Doctor.Don’t delete your TV: The original Mondasian Cybermen will return for the last two episodes of season 10.The wholly organic humanoids originated on Earth’s twin planet Mondas, which, during prehistoric times, was knocked out of solar orbit and drifted into deep space.A dying race, the Mondasians replaced most of their bodies with cybernetic parts and removed all emotion from their brains, transforming into Cybermen hell-bent on destroying Earth to make room for Mondas in the solar system.Twice foiled by the Doctor (“The Tenth Planet,” “Attack of the Cybermen”), the cyborgs turn their ambitions toward conquering the universe.Several more thwarted attacks later, Cybermen were last seen among alien refugees hiding in London (“Face the Raven”) and in season nine finale “Hell Bent,” in which a rusted robot is imprisoned in the Cloisters of Gallifrey.BBCNow, after more than 50 years off the air, the original version of the deadly enemies return for a two-part tale featuring the Twelfth Doctor, Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie), Nardole (Matt Lucas), and Missy (Michelle Gomez). The as-yet-untitled episodes, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay, will likely air in late June/early July.One of the most prolific villains, Cybermen have fought almost every incarnation of the Doctor, with the exception of the Eighth (Paul McGann); though the Eleventh Doctor (David Tennant) didn’t spar with the creatures during his series tenure, he met them during an appearance in the 50th anniversary special “The Day of the Doctor.”The ageless species also feature heavily in other forms of Doctor Who media, including video games, books, audio adventures, and comics, as well as TV spin-off Torchwood (“Cyberwoman”).Mondasian Cybermen aren’t the only classic monsters promised in season 10: Mark Gatiss recently teased the reappearance of Ice Warriors—with “a new twist.”It sounds like Moffat is pulling out all the stops for his and Capaldi’s farewell tour; the showrunner and actor have both announced their departure after this year’s Christmas special. Incoming boss Chris Chibnall will lead the hunt for the Thirteenth Doctor.last_img read more
