While the norm is usually "go go go", sometimes it can be pretty cool to look back on the work you've done. As filmmakers, that's what we're doing today! We've had the pleasure of working with some awesome people and businesses over the years to create videos that we (and we hope everyone) are proud of. In this video, we make our picks for the video we enjoyed working on the most as well as a runner-up. While it's hard to nail down the true winners, we did our best... check out the results below.
Hey folks, check out this spotlight video where Casey speaks on his passion for filmmaking. Tim also gives his thoughts on the process that went into shooting Casey's video. Enjoy!
This week Tim's on vacation, so our spotlight series is on hold, and we don't have any behind-the-scenes to show you. So Jason wanted to talk about how to get better at video, and to encourage everyone to just go out there and start creating. See what Jason has to say about his journey through video, and the challenge we're issuing to everyone out there this week!
As we continue with our short and sweet video posts, Jason succinctly outlines some valuable pointers when it comes to writing scripts for video. It depends on the video, but writing a script is often a very important part of the pre-production process in video production. The script is what determines the message, the concept, the visuals... the entire video! In fact, in a standard A/V (audio/visual) style script, not only are the words written out that are meant to be spoken by the person on camera, but the visuals are also written out that go along with each and every spoken line. Watch the video to see what Jason has to say.
This week's blog post features a quick BTS video where we take you on a quick tour of an interview lighting setup. When it comes to lighting, it's all about being able to harness and control those light beams. Sometimes that means removing light if there's too much, and one way to do that is to use garbage bags! Once we covered the windows with the solid black bags, we had the room in almost complete darkness. We were then able to use our studio lights and add only as much light as we needed to get the look we were going for. We also make mention of a couple other pointers when it comes to shooting in general, so be sure to check out the video to get a glimpse of what goes into shooting.
