Successive Exposure

Next week, we sit down with David Stump, A.S.C., and discuss such topics as the iconic train sequence in Stand By MeRambo III's "muscle lighting," Beetlejuice, and Army of Darkness. Plus, we talk about Quantum of Solace and forgetting to steal things, Star Trek: First Contact and Patrick Stuart's eyeball work, and we visit post-apocalyptic Kansas, go for a ride in a certain time-traveling Delorean once more, and Louis loves on David's book, Digital Cinematography: Fundamentals, Tools, Techniques, and Workflows

He's been a producer, a director, a cinematographer, an author, a visual effects supervisor, an effects cameraman - and he has an Academy Award for Scientific & Technical Achievement.

Michael Uva sits down with us on Cinematic Immunity to discuss transferring his skills from the U.S. Marines to the world of being a grip in the entertainment industry in 70's.  Michael Uva is one of the select entertainment technicians who have written "The Book" on his craft. Uva's Grip Book has been the one consistent reference manual for all things Grip for nearly 25 years and it's still going strong with the 2014 publishing of the 5th edition.  This episode was one of the earlier Cinematic Immunity episodes and captures a great perspective on how to do a hard job in hard conditions but still stay professional all day long.  We also break down some grip basics and why regular practice is so important, and how sharing the knowledge brings it back around in the long run.
