    In. my first love is still photography but I have a serious interest in filmmaking

    Photography is a large part of filmmaking fam, get in your cinematography bag if your main interest is in working with the camera, lenses, lighting etc Even developing said images will feel super familiar unless you goin digital, but I'm sure you've played with similar file formats

    Been preping for my first short film for a while now, gotta wait till summer tho to start shooting.

    If I can somehow succeed in displaying what’s in my mind it’s gonna be special.

    Funny enough I always aspired to be a movie director but I hated photography, that is until I started getting into it last year.

    I still am not a big fan, but I definitely have an appreciation that I didn’t have before.

    Always felt/still do that motion is the more natural way to display emotion.

    I get what you mean but photography in itself can be extremely powerful and sometimes a still image can display more emotion than any scene of motion. I love film photography but the artform has been destroyed by basic people with instagrams who want the aesthetic rather than being technically proficient at getting the best out of the roll possible.

    Digital can be fun too but just doesn't have that feeling that authentic film grain does, feels so ephemeral and truer to reality

    I own a ton of film cameras both photography and film recording

    Instagram definitely played a role in that, all those filters and editing tools sometimes eliminate the authentic feel you get from an image and give a fake vibe.

    I’m also a big fan of the look of movies shot on film (never done it myself). Huge bonus if it’s shot on natural lighting.

    Yeah, filters definitely played a huge role in the revival of film photography. they werent enough and now people ran out and start getting actual old ass cameras, I dont know a chick without one now its like a rite of passage to own one for them.

    movies shot on film are always f***ing otherworldly, especially the old ones that were super technical for their time and the directors invented new techniques to achieve something that is more common these days thanks to post editing software

    Artboard

    This was made in the 20s and is better than so many films that are put out today. It was extremely inexpensive to make and just his second film. Sometimes something smaller scale can be way more profound than big budget works but ngl 35mm is the dream, but that s*** is extremely difficult to shoot on mostly for cost reasons but your cinematographer gotta know his s*** or you're gonna end up like Tarkovsky and reshooting your movie 3 times

    Exactly! that movie looks beautiful.

    I watched seven samurai a few years back and it blew me away how good that movie looked, it’s better looking than most movies released these days.

    Also recently watched The Lighthouse and that s*** was so gorgeous it made me decide I want to become nothing but a filmmaker.

    I’ll be shooting my short on digital but I’ll definitely try to make it look as natural as possible. I really can’t wait for this lol.

    The Lighthouse is crazy I'm pretty sure its shot digitally but they created special filters to get the aesthetic and that type of next level dedication is what makes the film and Eggers/his team so special. It definitely is a film that revitalized my passion for filmmaking, and really its not even about blowing up and being famous but being able to express your vision through this medium. I need to save some money so I can get a few of my projects off the ground, thinking of making some experimental shorts next year on 8mm or 16mm. Might even f*** around and use my iPhone if it comes down to it.

    Do you own any cameras rn or have one in mind to cop soon?

    They actually did shoot on film and even used lenses from 1905 and 1930s, that's why it looks so gorgeous.

    I'm actually planning on shooting it on iPhone too, got a gimbal last week and i'm considering buying a mic and maybe even some lenses.

    iPhone camera is definitely capable enough of producing good looking shots, specially for a "short". Feel like those are more for displaying ideas/vision, rather than being the best looking.

    I will definitely try make look as good as I can, I already have most of the shots in my head including camera placements, movement etc... But I need to test those things out because i'm unsure how they are going to look in reality.

    I do want to get big for the sole reason of being able to show my vision using better equipment and actors. I also don't really wanna be doing another job, since being a director has always been my dream job since I was very young and there is no point for me to wait to pursue that.

  • Anyone got a place I should check out for cheap fabric for a green screen? Or any real cheap fabric I can use to color key?

    There are a lot of apps, mostly paid, that turn the cameras into high quality tools for recording. Has things like viewfinders and a lot of other stuff professional camera persons would use. Ofc nothing beats the real thing but you can easily make high quality projects by pushing the power of iPhone's camera.

    If that's your dream go for it, lots of ways to get your feet into the industry's door nowadays so dont cut any corners and take what you can get

  • Good luck to all my KTT n****s trying to make it

    Thanks bro, I know about those (already bought Filmic pro) and started playing with it.

    This is my dream for sure, so I’m not going to cut any corners. I even did a story board with all the different shots etc. and I’m going to make another one that is more detailed with the duration added.

  • Sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm very new to this but can anyone tell me if this scene used a red light to give the red colour during shooting or this was just editing using a red filter
