I make a living by making websites, but am learning the trade of filmmaking.
Congrats on finishing a project. I feel we should start off there. And then i looked at your channel for newer work. Get on that!
You asked for feedback, so here's some from a newbie:
Am I Alone -> way too long for what it is. I think it was over 1:30 of watching before he looked out the window of us listening to... a skateboard on pavement in a tunnel? There's wiggle room for things in the beginning and end... but the things that _happen_, those need to be spot on and they felt just off a bit.. and confusing. I think I saw purposeful out of focus techniques and purposeful slant of the frame after a part. You put thought into it, but you need to trim the heck out of this.
Land before time trailer -> great job practicing editing. But don't get sloppy with almost-centered-text. That brought me right out of it. And on your next, focus on how to combine the music with the dialog. Maybe turn it into a horror trailer or into something it's not.
I subscribed to your channel... so maybe when you do something again, I'll watch it.
Depends... do you need to be discrete? Can you have a big honkin' camera rig b/c you're mostly doing interviews in a staged area? Inside and you control lights? Outside and no lights?
Maybe invest in a good tripod, circle light, and microphone. Then get some battery extenders and use your cell phone (yes, on a tripod with lights and microphone). If you have a DSLR or something big, people will react differently.
Watch 'Housebound'... I think from New Zealand. That's a all sorts of genres, but not all at the same time. I rank it as one of my favorites.
If you're on a budget, don't focus on the camera. Focus on feeding the crew and actors, audio, lighting, etc. I'm working on my first feature now (planning and test shots + modifying script for what I have). My budget is nearly non-existent. I opted for one good microphone, home made led lights, and a craigslist DSLR ($385 for camera and kit lens). I have multiple batteries and SD cards. I've left more in the budget to feed the cast and crew than for for any other single item. I've also worked in a $10-20 day rate for everyone (people I already know) involved (in addition to final DVD and credit) to cover at least gas.
If you have a DSLR that can shoot 1080p and this is your first feature. Maybe that $2000 could be spent on lead actors? That might lead to a better film than a better camera.
That's about the most generic marketing question ever! Try again with more details. Is the web series free, pay per episode, is there a topic, location, etc?
I'm working on a film that will involve a security robot. I'm going to use robot/prop forums to help me learn how to build it. That's learning, showing my work (giving back), and marketing in that others will know what it's for. There's also a doll house required for the film and my wife will be posted about it to all her doll house groups. That's showing off/ marketing/ etc, but not in a way that is obnoxious. It's on topic and on point.
Look at Adobe Capture for your phone (a free app). Research what it does and use it when you see something that catches your eye. Point it at a TV when you're watching a movie.
Look up youtube videos of color wheels. Then go into film colors. When to use primarily 2 colors that are opposite or similar, when to use three.
You have a bmpcc.... learn color grading and make your video what you want. Heck, go black and white to focus on proportions and other bits. Then transition into using more color. Davinci Resolve should be your friend, right?
Maybe leave your bmpcc behind. Just use your cell phone... take good photographs. Study photography and proportions... let that help you frame up your videos. Maybe you'll feel better if instead of getting videos you're disappointed in, you get a couple good photos.
And keep at it.
