Top three film is "The Fall" produced (and visualized) by this badass... not many know it which kinda blows my mind...
That was great. once again... just make the film. so good...
although he didnt really demonstrate how "to shoot night in an honest way". He said he used an app. Would have loved an actual, you know, demonstration.
I saw (what I think) was this exact exhibit at the Museum or the Moving Image in Queens, NY (amazing if you've never been...) and I remember a whole section dedicated to her. Rightfully. She is Scorsese as much as Scorsese is he.
Solid advice for sure, and short and sweet. Great vid.
Also here some good advice for settings which can make all the difference: https://cineclast.com/2015/01/04/best-settings-for-perfect-drone-footage...
This is great advice for anyone, not really specifically for a filmmaker. I have some things I've developed over the year that help me stay cranking:
To Do lists - I keep a google doc that says "to do" and first thing I do is look at it in the morning, add, move items around and then thats it. I just go line by line. It never gets completely cleared "write script about "mother ship" will take a sec" but its a good way to stay focused.
Trackball - I know, some people will talk $hit bout this, but a track ball is a life saver. Mice cramp your hands, and tablets while great for roto/photo are slow as hell for editing.
learn your hot keys - if you edit, nothing makes you faster (and more productive) then being able to do nearly everything without taking your hands off the keyboard. customize it, then save your settings to the cloud, and if you go to work somewhere else, you can just download your settings and its like youre at home.
organize - put all your sound effects and visual effects on a drive. keep all your films and footage organized on another. nothing can slow you down more then having to look for stuff constantly.
get help - a lot of times I send a friend to go shoot something that I was suppose to. There are a lot of little jobs you take on that become time consuming when other projects get in the way, so its good to have jr. people around you that are capable to take care of the business that you end up not having time for. It saves you the work, gives them an opportunity, and keeps you focused on more pressing projects.
Thats a few... I have a blog. With advice. And pictures of cats. www.cineclast.com
These are great... we did a spot for Cannondale a while back, and used a projector... was quite cool https://vimeo.com/124470583
