    Best type of light for indoor video

    Hello guys, first please excuse my english, not my main language. I'm working on a long time project. We're going to be filming guest bands in the bar environment and create live music videos out of it (film their performance). Lights will be placed from the ceiling down (at angle) towards the...

    Is it worth going to film school to build connections?

    I'm going to a film school which is basicly more of an art school -> I picked film directing course. While I did learn some stuff in the film school, I feel like I didn't learn enough. I learned most of the important things by myself and doing research on the internet. I did meet some nice...

    watch Film shot by ONE GUY.

    Loved the film and also your story behind it, there is no excuse not to film. I liked the jump scares and also the evil side of the antagonist (and that knife nod to Psycho :P). It is true although that you had some money on your side for equipment. I have no problem filming with my Nikon, but...

    Song -> Film screenplay rights?

    Yes, there are many parodies indeed, but also so called "unnoficial music videos" that also rank very high and contain music of famous bands. I don't believe that they actually ask anyone for permission to do it. Youtube then either blocks the video, allows it, or just types under the video who...

    Song -> Film screenplay rights?

    Ok I'll ask the mentor, but still, I'll most likely just get idea of this film being made out of my mind and make another film. Getting rights from everyone would probably take way too much time and I don't have that much of it. Also, I have no idea how to get in contact with any of them...

    Song -> Film screenplay rights?

    Hello guys, I am a student of film directing and I have to do an exercise which is to direct a short film (and write a screenplay for it). I always loved a song from some band and I thought it has a great potential to be made into short film. What I want to do is film my own interpretation of...

    ProAM USA Autopilot Camera stabilizer. Is it any good?

    Hello guys, I was looking into cheap steadicams and I found this one through Film Riot. Does any of you guys have it, is it any good? They obviously like it on Film Riot and it works just as well as glidecam even though it's cheaper. I don't have an option to test it myself so I'm asking here...

    The Jean-Jacques Beineix look - how to achieve it?

    ChimpPhobiaFilms, thanks for the warm welcome and reply! I just discovered this forum and already like the community here :) I have some new questions for you: 1. What kind of stock light would I need to use those filters on? White light, yellow light, neon green light? I'm guessing that there...

    The Jean-Jacques Beineix look - how to achieve it?

    Hey guys, I have some experience in directing but not too much experience with color grading or how to achieve some certain look (or film it the right way to achieve this certain look). I am wondering how to achieve the "orange days" and "blue nights" look. This look is present a lot in early...
