Stephen Bright's curator insight, January 8, 6:33 PM

Good range of tips here- thorough, easy to follow and well-organised. I would have liked a few more screenshots rather than just text but maybe that's because I'm a 'visual preference' person. 

 

Thanks to Karin Gilbert for this resource on her videosforlearning scoop.it page.

Netflix's Viewing Data: How We Know Where You Are in House of Cards | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

Over the past 7 years, Netflix streaming has expanded from thousands of members watching occasionally to millions of members watching over two billion hours every month.  Each time a member starts to watch a movie or TV episode, a “view” is created in our data systems and a collection of events describing that view is gathered.  Given that viewing is what members spend most of their time doing on Netflix, having a robust and scalable architecture to manage and process this data is critical to the success of our business.

Something that is rarely talked about is the moment you get stuck on set, unhappy with the camera placement you initially picked, knowing there is a best way to film a scene but unable to come up with a solution.

The Story of Story: How I Learned to Stop Worrying & Love Structure « No Film School | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

It is a truism that, “we tell ourselves stories in order to live.“ But, it is also remarkable what a human characteristic the drive for narrative is. We’ve been telling stories since we learned how to communicate, and though the experiences of the myriad individuals worldwide throughout all of existence are altogether unique, the way we’ve been telling those stories hasn’t changed since the times of Aristotle.

BREAKING BAD – Motivated Camera Movement

BREAKING BAD – Motivated Camera Movement | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

Cinema is a visual art form. It is universal and ubiquitous. The same images and stories flash by inside a darkened theater as they do inside your living room. Films enthrall us. They are spellbinding. They are magical. The spectacle of seeing moving images for the first time is something never forgotten. The first film I saw was JAWS at a drive-in theater in Canada at the age of 4. I’m still petrified of sharks. Thanks Spielberg!

What Exactly Does an Experienced Editor Do? This Short Animation Reveals Everything

What Exactly Does an Experienced Editor Do? This Short Animation Reveals Everything | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

We live in an age where a 6-year-old with a laptop and a copy of iMovie can edit some footage together. Editing software is abundant and as easy to use as it has ever been, and the masses are using these tools to flood the internet with copious amounts of video content. But most of us can agree that simply being able to make edits does not necessarily make a person an editor, at least in the sense of the editing being a creative art form.

News Shooter | Video interview: Vincent Laforet on his upcoming Directing Motion tour – will it be useful for factual shooters?

News Shooter | Video interview: Vincent Laforet on his upcoming Directing Motion tour – will it be useful for factual shooters? | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

Vincent Laforet is the best known pioneer of the video DSLR revolution with his early work on the 5D mkII. Once a news photographer for the New York Times, he turned his attention to creating video and is now a director working in LA. The move from stills to shooting video, and now to directing, has taught Laforet many things. One key difference is that great film and video require the mastery of motion – how to move the camera in a dynamic way that helps tell your story and makes it more engaging for the audience.
