Jon Fauer, ASC, cinematographer, director, and author of ten best-selling technical books, introduces the newsletter, Film and Digital Times. Published 6 times a year, each issue is 16 pages and focuses on the technical aspects of equipment, technique and technology.
The Newsletter idea began when Fauer started getting emails asking when an ARRI 235 Book might be ready. Since it takes over a year to do a book, he opted to pen a newsletter — an episodic, continuing series of technical bulletins on the nuts and bolts, how-to, ins and outs of equipment and tools of our trade. And, of course, it would not just be ARRI equipment, but everything he and his colleagues encounter as they shoot features, commercials, television and meet with students and independents.
