John has also been working closely with the design team at Black Magic and how responsive they have been to his suggestions to make sure the image from the Black Magic Camera is just right before release later this month.

Making Team GB “Don’t Stop Me Now” for Adidas UK | Philip Bloom | Blog
Philip had to shoot this ad very quickly:
We had massive cue cards to help, a few painful attempts at me singing it to them to get the pace and timings, and of course nice loud playback. Essentially a lip sync music video with lots of people, quite the opposite of my sedate, moody video with Olly just a few days earlier!

Producer Jon Landau: Filmmakers, Not Studios, Should Decide the Fate of Higher Frame Rates | Carolyn Giardina | The Hollywood Reporter
I'm still not convinced about high frames rates, (or 3D or 4K for that matter)...
Cameron intends to make his sequels to Avatar at a high frame rate, and Jackson is making his upcoming The Hobbit trilogy at 48fps. The first of Jackson’s films, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, opens Dec. 14. An early preview of some unfinished 48fps footage of the film drew mixed reaction when it was screened at CinemaCon in April.
