"Yeah, it's halfway between 480p and 720p, so pretty good still. Mind you, that's what the Canons have been giving us for a while now. That being said, it opens up a whole new world of sensor choices, depending on which cameras will be…"

Phil Tippett Puppet Making Technique?

I'm working on a new project, and am needing to make a really anatomically precise puppet. I've been watching this test of the T-Rex that Tippett did way back when, and I'm just floored by the way the skin slides over the pelvis, ribcage, and other "bones." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEK9mitagS8Other than just being an amazing artist/engineer/etc, what all has he got going on under the surface that allows such marvelous representation of anatomy? I thought I had seen an interview with him once, where he kinda broke-down some of the tricks involved -- for instance, I thought he mentioned the use of nylon stocking stretched over the armature causing a barrier against the cast foam to allow the "skin" to glide? -- but I can not for the life of me remember when or where I saw this. If anyone has any info or ideas, that would be greatly appreciated.See More

"I wouldn't worry too much about breaking the HDMI. Considering it's one of the most used cameras in indie documentary work, it should be fine. I'm pretty gentle with my gear though so YMMV."
