John, I fear the day we ever have to have a film discussion in real life lol. Your general film history knowledge blows mine out of the water :)
The horizon concept/illustration is how painters/illustrators are taught composition and perspective drawing. I'm applying it for filmmakers. Horizon on interiors is very important as well, I've shot hundreds of projects on sound stages and it's important for understanding how to film within a set, especially one without a ceiling.
Horizon should be considered in interiors even if you if cant see it. It plays into matching coverage and if you go and draw the horizon, even if obscured, in professional film coverage, you'll see how the director/operators are making pairs or deciding to move it.
Also the horizon is the horizon, even if there are mountains and un even terrain. Maybe I should dig deeper into what the horizon really is <3
A spotlight, in the US, is likely referring to a theatrical spotlight that is a pretty much a big ellipsoidal. I'm classifying all lights that emit a conical beam as a spotlight, like the 3D mathematical description of light that 3D artists use.
Point taken, there is wide range of people watching my channel. I would want to dive right into high end, but I get a lot of comments asking for videos like this. But I get your point about the length. TYTY
Why you gotta make an alias on Youtube, but here you are comfortable with the real ID Martin? Don't you know that I AM THE INTERNET?!111 <3
I'm open to a discussion on this, I'm presenting an opinion on simplifying how people think about different classes of lights. If you disagree, that is cool, I'm open to learn and evolve.
Note: the NFS header says "Everything" my video does not claim that though. I said the opposite "Spotlights 101" as in entry level basic overview type of content.
I'd love to learn more about you and your goals Martin as a filmmaker <3 I see a lot of negative comments from you on these boards. Can we hug?
Your MoGraph and video work are both really nice. I work for serveral very talented directors who are designers first.
Watch this commercial I shot recently, it's obviously an exercise in design.https://vimeo.com/170778388
If you want to get hired on bigger projects as a DP, you need a site and Instagram account that is exclusively your DP work. No motion graphics. Think of it as fun new start.
If your reputation as a MoGraph artist helps you network in the beginning, that is great. However, it won't likely help you as you progress. It will confuse your future directors/clients and make it harder for them to understand you and to ultimate chose you over someone who appear to be more specialized.
You maybe the exception, but all of the industry DPs I'm friends with have specific curated web sites and IGs for their DP work. You can still have your MoGraph site/company and take that work. But separate 100% of your DP work from it.
Just my point of view.
