Ter aanvulling op het Covid-19 Protocol Audiovisuele Sector, lanceert Dutch Academy For Film (DAFF), naast haar reeds gepresenteerde Toolkit, nu ook een app met nuttige tips en tricks om de filmwerkzaamheden binnen de nieuwe 1,5-meter-werksituatie in de AV-sector uit te kunnen voeren. Via de AV Covid-19 Toolkit NL APP kunnen filmmakers snel en gemakkelijk de tips en tricks uit de Toolkit vinden die voor hen van toepassing zijn. Deze zijn bedoeld om inzichten en inspiratie te geven met als einddoel besmetting te voorkomen. De app biedt, naast hands-on adviezen voor ieder departement binnen de gestelde regels van het RIVM, ook inzage in het onlangs geactualiseerde protocol. De app is te openen via bijgevoegde QR-code of via deze link -> https://avtoolkitcovid19nl.glideapp.io/ Soon available in English! 😉

As the COVID-19 situation continues, so does the need to be able to live stream. With live streaming products from i.a. Teradek and Blackmagic Design you can continue working by monitoring your shoot remotely, allowing you to send an encrypted feed live from the camera on set to a remote production office, home or other location. With most of these streaming sets you can also stream directly to online video platforms like Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Periscope and Twitch. Call our office or send us an email if you want to know more or if we could help you out with your set-up! ☝️

We have been busy the last couple of weeks, making our office Corona-proof. The prime minister just announced that the regulations, that are applicable for us, will be continued. That’s why we have taken some measures to not only make our office Corona-proof but also to make your shoot as smooth and comfortable as possible. ✔ Are you renting a camera from us? Then you will be given free eye-cushions. As many as you need for your shoot. ✔ Are you renting a full camera package (camera, lenses and a monitor) from us? Then we will provide you with a video transmitter set, including 1 receiver per monitor (up to 4 max.). Completely free of charge. ✔ And last but not least… All our clients can pick up free reusable face shields at our office. They are inspired by Apple and handmade in our office. All these freebies are available as long as the Corona regulations from the government continue. Do you have a question about coming to the office, renting something or your shoot? Don

Did you see our new Leitz Primes already? Well, we've got something you might like to use with it: our MACROLUX adapters! The MACROLUX offers cinematographers and lens owners a creative way to get different looks and extend the performance of prime, zoom and anamorphic lenses with 114 and 95 mm front diameters. It offers a greater macro effect for table top and close up work. But also out of focus: on wide or mid-range focal length lenses the MACROLUX throws the background further out of focus and accentuates beautiful elements like focus fall off and bokeh.
