    Sir, I’m not the one to correct you but I believe the title should be “If not now, when”. Thanks for sharing this piece of art.

    1. Philip Bloom says:

      nope. I had it with punctuation and was told there was none. It’s a song title, not a piece of written prose so generally you can do what you want!

  2. allstars says:

    I’m referring to the title on the blog itself, not serious but worth mentioning for such a great piece of art.

    Hallo Philip,

    i shoot in next time a documentary with c300. one question:

    did you shoot the movie in 50i or 25p. what is the best way? shot in 50i and in the post deinterlaced to progressive frame? what is your choice?

    Thank you

    1. Philip Bloom says:

      hi paul…

      little point shooting interlaced if you have a native progressive.



      1. Paul says:

        thanks for info, philip…

        last que: for ” if not now when” – did you progressive?

        by the way, you are the guru for me in documentary shooting.
        good luck

        1. Philip Bloom says:

          thanks Paul! Yes progressive
