Simon Cade is a priceless resource for beginners and he's incredibly wise for his age. But that doesn't mean you can't address something imprecise when he says it, or take the chance to discuss the matter :)
Yes it's for beginners, so it's even more important to give accurate and precise information. It takes 20 seconds to say the things I said (check the best ISO values for you camera), and no one does it. I usually love Simon Cade, I only took the chance to address this issue, that is more and more common. NOT ALWAYS lower ISO = lower noise. In many, MANY DSLRs it's not like that.
I'm sorry but in 2016 it's painful to see some amateurs or even video professionals still preaching about this "the higher the ISO is, the more grainy the image will be" thing, always presenting it as a sort of unfailing universal rule for every existent camera, which IT IS NOT. Some of today's non-professional cameras (especially DSLRs, which are the subject of this video) have peculiar behaviors with ISO, and everyone should look up an ISO test or do it by himself/herself. For example the Canon 60D is better at ISO 160, 320 and even 640 than ISO 100! And, surprise, ISO 1250 is better than ISO 125 (!): https://vimeo.com/23082874 The Canon 6D, on the other hand, has an even stranger behavior and its ISO 800 is virtually on par with ISO 100. And I've tested this myself with two different 6D bodies: https://vimeo.com/146119789
So, I'm sorry to be that guy, but saying "the higher the ISO is, the more grainy the image will be" is kinda of a superficial and heedless "safe assumption", even quite uninformative.
Tale of Tales is a movie very, very hard to fully appreciate. The three tales in this film are part of a book of 50 tales published in Italy in 1636 and written in an ancient version of napoletano. They are *heavily* baroque and, on purpouse, they have no definite and clear moral. There's no "punchline" or anything similar. In other words it's one of those experiences where it's the journey that matters, and not the destination.
This adaptation was a huge guess, because in the sole act of translating from napoletano to italian (and then to english) you can't help but having A LOT of "lost in translation". I mean, A L-O-T.
I think the work made by Garrone and his screenwriters is nonetheless pretty good. But a story with this structure (or non-structure) will not be embraced and liked by everyone.
Aside of that, the movie was very well shot, with beautiful cinematography, good acting, and special effects made with actual props and almost nonexistent use of CGI (and it shows... a big plus IMO). The locations are also all real!
The software and the talent of those guys are awesome. The overuse of (often bad) CGI in most of modern blockbusters is annoying.
The rule of thirds surely shouldn't be a "rule" but a very useful guide for beginners and amateurs. I find the concepts in this video highly exxagerated and extreme, but it's true that one shouldn't stick to the rule of thirds "no matter what", or it could be detrimental to his craft. I started doing photography way before than cinematography, and many times I noticed how a photo was far better if composed with the golden ratio or in other ways, often without following any known rule, just your eye.
