Do you ever wonder how some people are able to afford the gear that they buy? How do I afford all the gear I buy? Am I rich? Do YOU have to be rich in order to have the same gear as me?
The answer is NO!
Let’s talk about how we can afford such expensive gear… What are your options?
The quickest option, and my most favorite option… is to open up a credit card that offers no interest financing! I currently have a card that has 21 months NO INTEREST!!! This card was a lifesaver for me and I used
Do you always have to plan something before you shoot? The answer is NO. That is the beauty about art. It never has to be planned, in fact, quite the contrary. Art is supposed to be made by feel. Filmmaking is an art form and sometimes it is not planned. A lot of my videos were not planned, but were rather shot by feel. I never wrote a script! Now, I am not saying to not write a script. Planning is good, IF YOU HAVE TIME. But for people like me who are trying to put out high quality content fast
Professional Titling can separate an amateur from a professional, that it is extremely important that you understand the how titling can affect your videos. If you look at any interview, commercial, or even documentary, you will notice that text appears at the bottom of the screen labeling the person speaking and showing the viewer some details about the person or subject. It is not only about the text, but it is also about how the text appears.
Let me introduce you to the world of “Lower Thirds.”
As you already know, summer unfortunately is coming to its end (In the U.S.). But wait! That is actually good new! Why? Since the weather will be changing soon, that means so will color! Fall and winter offer so many different beautiful opportunities to capture color. Especially from the sky (if you have a drone.) Also, since it will be cooling down, it will motivate you to go out and shoot more.
Here are a few ideas to get your ball rolling on some great shoots:
Capture emotions. Shoot a lot of close-ups of people expressing their emotions. It doesn’t matter which emotion, because each of them is extremely powerful.
Nature is gorgeous! So be sure to capture lots of nature, especially because the season is changing, which means that colors will also change, bringing diversity to your videos.
Get in your car and drive! If you have the time out of your busy schedule, I highly suggest, jumping in your car with your buddies and bring along your camera gear. Filming in a similar location for a while can get boring and dull, so mix it up!
Document your adventures and shoot behind the scenes footage. By doing this, you will become better in front of the camera and it is always great to document your filming!
Lastly, plan out your ideas. What message do you want to share with the world? What stories do you want to tell? How do you want to tell them? It is extremely difficult to tell stories, so it is an excellent idea to keep a journal handy and to jot down ideas as soon as you get them!
