Steps To construct a Great Movie
How was the method regarding getting set up, locating the best shot, framing, etc?
The biggest challenge in achieving an ideal shot (which isn’t even real in the first place!) is being present. It is possible to plan for hours and double-check everything, however until you’re out in the field with the camera in your hand it’s nothing more than the plan. I’ve been shooting for a couple of years now and I’ve found that when I’m in a stunning scene, where to position the camera and the best way to compose a picture comes easily to me. In a situation like this I’m editing and shooting in my head continuously and I’m making the film in my head in order to pick photos that work as a starting point or middle point or ending. I’ll get an idea of the amount of camera motion I’d like to see in the shot and when I’d like to have to be in a static location and be in motion in the image.
For these kinds of work, I typically have an notion of narrative, i.e. I’m trying to convey the. Impact the mountains can have on me, however I allow nature to do what it does and inspire me , and then see what I get.
I shot this project in 5 days without spending a dime beyond my time.
How did you go about selecting the music? Did you have an idea in your the back. Of your mind or did you play around? (you don’t need the need to include Filmstro here)
Funny enough, I’ve used Filmstro frequently in movie studios recent times. And knew I’d be using it for this particular project. I am not a fan of the phrase “game changer” but Filmstro has changed how I score a film. I usually upload the bulk of my work on YouTube and, having had several issues with copyright issues. Even using tracks that are legally licensed, it’s no longer a problem. Filmstro lets me precisely match the music to the way I edit my films, and not vice versa. I’m hoping to see more more tracks being added in the near future (check for Filmstro’s royalty-free music library).
Was your post-production workflow like? What softwaredid you use? Color grading? Music?
I cut my images in Adobe Premiere Pro and do my colour correction. I then grade it in the Lumetri color panel in Premiere Pro. For larger projects, I could employ the services. Or Davinci Resolve but I like the seamless workflow in the one program. The feature that Filmstro now comes with an exclusive Premiere Pro panel. Makes the entire post-production process more effortless for me.
While you’re editing these types of videos, what’s your process video production company near me of thought? What are you doing to set the pace of the video with editing to tell the idea?
Usually work on projects in various ways
Editing is always a private process, and I usually work on projects in various ways. In this particular piece, which isn’t totally focused on narrative, I’m hoping to create a feeling with the viewers. I’ve been reading quite the majority of the writings of John Muir recently. And he is basically the Godfather of the Wilderness. Muir had written beautiful poetic lines about the mountains. And I was thinking it would go perfectly with the video which is a VO.
