"Pass your knowledge to young filmmakers?"
Wish I resembled that remark, but at (ahem) 50+ years of age and starting out in the film industry, dues gotta be paid. I'll will state this, I am grateful for the younger generation taking the time from their busy schedules to share their experiences.
Highly prolific with a few unknowns to me. Somewhere, someone is putting together a script on his behalf.
That's a nice setup with a lot great features.
I don't own a drone either and I find it more economical (for the time being) to rent a drone with operator e.g., my friend. The shots are done professionally and I don't have to preoccupy myself with ownership, training, licensing, insurance, airspace violation, national parks etc . . .
Looking forward to Peter's recommendation on music websites. Currently using royalty-free musicbed/premium beat. I'm a big fan of window lighting and diffused lighting without the rain that's easier on the eyes.
While on the subject of lighting I saw a scene in "Lord of the Rings" where harsh mid day light casted dark shadows on the main actor's eyes (mid shot) starting at the eyebrow onto the check bone. Peter's spot on with his assessment.
Great tips and I'll add a new toothbrush and orb colours to my kit.
Started reading the filmmaker's eye yesterday and the intro was comical re an invite/review of a film . . . look forward to the read.
