ESSENTIAL BLACK FRIDAY DEALS FOR FILMMAKERS
OK! Today is BLACK FRIDAY the time for Deals!
Lets see… there’s always plenty on offer, but what did we find that caught our eye?
Prepare for a rundown on what VideoandFilmmaker would like under the tree this Christmas!
CINEMATOGRAPHY: DJI MAVIC PRO
Well a must have for dynamic, awe inspiring, jaw dropping Cinematography is a drone right?
The DJI MAVIC PRO is a formidable weapon of the skies, shooting 4K steadily with features that greatly improve the camera’s stability, such as 3-axis mechanical stabilisation and FlightAutonomy technology.
It also has a great flight range of 7km, which means you better start getting ready to pick up all those dropping jaws!
Save $232USD with the DJI Mavic Pro Fly More Combo at the special Black Friday price of $1,149USD, which also includes a stack of must have accessories to help keep you filming all those epic shots that much longer.
SHOOT: ROKINON 50MM CINE DSLR LENS
Next up is the giant killing 50mm DSLR Cine lens from Rokinon, feat. the Canon EF mount.
With 50mm being a good choice to get many great shots, this lens is geared entirely towards video shooting, with a very fast aperture that allows for low light shoots and a manual focus that is compatible to most focus pulling attachments, this is a go-to lens if you use a EF lens mount DSLR (Such as the popular DSLR cameras much used for video, the Canon 5D’s and 7D’s)
Considering the alternatives available and comparing the quality and features, the savings here of $150USD don’t begin to describe how much this lens will actually be worth to you! Amazingly only $399USD!
A more then solid buy, this packs a punch for any price!
SEE: SMALLHD 703 ULTRALIGHT MONITOR & THE FLANDERS SCIENTIFIC INC. BM240 BROADCAST MONITOR
Now one necessary need for any good production is the ability to monitor what is being captured, helps if its both easy and effective but most importantly it needs to be, accurately!
If you can’t be sure of whats being captured or being displayed on screen, to put it simply – you got some problems to work out.
For the shoot we have the SmallHD 703 Ultralight Monitor Bundle with a saving of over $800USD, this little portable attachable screen is many a filmmakers best friend on set.
For the post-production stage the Flanders Scientific Inc. BM240 Broadcast Monitor is no joke when it comes to accurate colours. Save $500USD atm.
Both are professional pieces of kit that perform well, and today are great deals, well worth it to any filmmakers in need of such capabilities and accurate reproduction.
WRITE: FINAL DRAFT 10
Good writing, huh! Sometimes a much neglected part of the process, we all know it’s important, now don’t we!
Final Draft 10 has long been an industry standard when it comes to script writing and is $149.99USD on this Black Friday’s Deals with a saving of $100USD, making it a great time to invest.
Final Draft 10 makes formatting scripts much much easier and will save you 100’s of hours of time, if not 1000’s! Now with collaboration features.
HEAR: IZOTOPE RX ELEMENTS
A must have when it comes to audio-post is the Izotope RX Suite allowing for the editing and repair of any fumbled or badly recorded audio from the day of the shoot (ahh just fix it in post lol).
You know that plane and siren that went off in the middle of “the” take?
Now with RX it’s possible to selectively remove parts of the audio spectrum and erase select frequencies leaving the rest untouched!
This Black Friday the deal of the day is RX Elements with a saving of $100USD making it a super steal, and a must have at $29USD!
STORE: SANDISK 500 480GB PORTABLE SSD DRIVE
For all our Portable SSD data storage needs the SanDisk Extreme 500 is a good choice at $155.99USD.
For 480Gb and super fast transfer speeds of up to 415mb/s this portable SSD fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.
Backup, backup, and then backup again!

Adobe is a great innovator and leader in creative technical software and for a limited time Adobe Creative Cloud has special pricing for this Black Friday, giving you access to their much loved and revered line of software.
Including everything from Photoshop CC to Premiere CC and of course After Effects CC, to name a few.

SOUND: RODE RODELINK WIRELESS FILMMAKER KIT
