What is visual rhythm and how can you use it to make better, more interesting films?
Visual rhythm is incredibly important in filmmaking because it establishes the flow of a story, a flow that can really make or break your film. While both good and bad rhythm put your audience on the edge of their seat, one finds them there because they're excited and engaged and the other finds them there because they're getting up to head for the door, so it's supremely important to know how to use visual elements wisely.
In this video, the team over at The Film Look shows you three ways in which they established the rhythm of their film The Asylum Groove to create an interesting, engaging, and meaningful story using visual techniques that are not difficult to implement into your own projects. Check it out below:

Get some global promotion for free from Pond5.
Do you own a RED camera? Think you got any good shots in the past couple of years? If your answer is yes, then this opportunity may be for you.
Pond5 is one of the bigger stock video libraries you can find online these days, and it often comes out with cool initiatives for creators to take advantage of.
The company most recently announced that it would be accepting submissions to start a collection of aerial footage shot exclusively on DJI drones. The purpose was to give sellers a chance to immediately have their footage filtered into a place with other videos shot with gear of a certain quality.
The company will now be taking this idea to the next level by implementing a new program to create a collection of 8K, 6K, 5K, & 4K footage shot exclusively on RED cameras. Featured work will receive global promotion and be eligible for free footage-preparation services from Pond5. Both previously shot work and new footage will be considered for the collection, as long as you fully own the copyright. Maybe you’ve got some cool, unused footage just sitting in your library that could be used to make some quick dough?
You can apply to become a part of the program right here. Good luck!
