Leroy Fer’s second goal of the season gave QPR a deserved half-time lead at Ewood Park.The Dutchman applied the finish from Junior Hoilett’s right-wing cross midway through the opening period.Former Blackburn man Hoilett looked particularly bright against his old club, having a cross-cum-shot saved in the opening minutes.QPR twice had hearts in mouths, first when Shane Duffy nodded just wide from a corner and then when Joe Lumley, making his first league start in goal, fumbled Corry Evans’ shot but saved Jordan Rhodes’ follow-up.Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side were always a threat on the break, utilising the pace and directness of Hoilett and Matt Phillips.The goal came after good work from Sebastian Polter, one of eight chances to the side that lost at Nottingham Forest on Saturday in the FA Cup.He sent Hoilett clear and the winger’s delivery beat Phillips and Blackburn keeper Jason Steele before being put in by Fer.Steele later saved from Polter while at the other end, Lumley got behind a Ben Marshall effort.Blackburn: Steele, Marshall, Duffy, Hanley, Spurr, Bennett, Evans, Akpan, Conway, Lawrence, Rhodes. Subs: Raya, Henley, Brown, Olsson, Williamson, Taylor, Lenihan.QPR: Lumley; Perch, Onuoha, Hall, Konchesky; Faurlin, Henry; Phillips, Fer, Hoilett; Polter.

It’s a pretty frank and inspirational talk about the investment – and no, not the financial investment – that entrepreneurs must make.Hunt (@missrogue on Twitter) is the co-founder of the shopping data startup Shwowp, and in her TEDx talk, she talks about some of the struggles necessary in building a company, in convincing others of its potential, and of moving forward. In the talk, she points to the three characteristics she believes are innate in entrepreneurs: delusion, dreams, and audacity. Of course, saying that these characteristics are innate means there’s nothing you can do to teach entrepreneurship. Even so, Hunt argues that an entrepreneur needs to go “all in” in order to really reach that level (that level of delusion, dreaming, and audacity, perhaps) – something she says distinguishes an entrepreneur from someone who’s simply self-employed.Hunt’s passion is obvious here – it’s evident in her story and in her voice.

One of the biggest headaches associated with shooting at 24fps is the jittery look of vertical lines you get when panning. This calculator will help you eliminate that issue entirely.Top image of Chris Menges from Movie City NewsThe reason we love 24p footage so much, is the very same reason it can be so frustrating to work with – it’s just not smooth. Unlike 30p or 60p footage that can appear so smooth that it’s hyper-realistic looking, 24fps material has a slight jitter to it, which makes it feel more ‘filmic.’Here’s a comparison from Derek Rowe that highlights the differences between 24fps and 60fps:This jittery effect goes unnoticed most of the time, except of course in certain circumstances — one example being panning shots. If you’ve ever watched back footage from a shoot and noticed that a building, sign, or anything else with a vertical line seemed to appear jumpy or jittery when panning, you probably weren’t factoring in panning speeds.To clarify exactly what this looks like, take a look at this test video I shot a couple years back with my GH3. The intention was to compare my new camera to the GH2 and see which had more noticeable jitter when panning:GH3 – Panning Judder Test from Noam Kroll on Vimeo.This issue can be problematic in other ways too – for example scrolling credits can often appear jittery at 24fps if they aren’t set to the right speed. But for the purpose of this post, we’ll focus on the production side of things and how to avoid this issue in camera.Thankfully, there’s a bit of a science to getting smooth motion when panning in 24p. Some of the biggest variables that come into play include: lens length, shutter speed, resolution, and panning angle. Once you understand how these elements affect each other, you can quickly figure out how long it should take you to pan from one side of your shot to the other.For example… let’s say you’re shooting on a 35mm lens at 24p on a Super 35mm camera. Let’s also assume that the shot you’re trying to capture calls for a panning angle of about 45 degrees — or in other words: you need to rotate the camera 45 degrees in your shot. To smoothly capture this shot you’d need to take at least 8 seconds to pan across your shot. If you were to move more slowly, that’ll work too… But any faster and your image becomes jittery.This may sound confusing, but there are many free calculators online that will help you determine the best panning speed for your shot. One of the ones that I use most often and highly recommend is from RED Digital Cinema. It can be found on their website here: Free Calculator from REDHere’s another from STAM Interactive: Pan Speed CalculatorAnd lastly, here’s a quick video from the great Dave Dugdale that’s full of tips that can help you pull off a great panning shot.Got any tips for your fellow cinematographers?
