Can You Sum Up a Film In Two Drawings? That’s What Lewis Trondheim & Jason Have Been Doing for Weeks

Can You Sum Up a Film In Two Drawings? That’s What Lewis Trondheim & Jason Have Been Doing for Weeks | Filmmaking News | Scoop.it

French cartoonist Lewis Trondheim and Norwegian cartoonist Jason are not only established storytellers within their medium, they are also movie lovers, or so it seems since the two men have started a weekly exercise in storytelling named “2 cases, 1 film” where they each try to sum up a film within two squares, and without revealing the film’s name.

From Focal Elements to Fibonacci: A 30-Minute In-Depth Study of Composition

From Focal Elements to Fibonacci: A 30-Minute In-Depth Study of Composition | Filmmaking News | Scoop.it
There's more to composition than the rule of thirds. And Fibonacci's not an opera singer. (You're thinking of Pavarotti -- or of Bocelli -- or of no opera singers because why would you be?) The composition is the frame and the arrangement of the elements in that frame. What are the elements of a frame? The mise-en-scène -- everything in the frame that makes up the frame, including everything from the actors, to lighting, to props, to costumes, to composition.

Now Avid Technologies is making a play for independent content creators by releasing free versions of their flagship projects, offering metadata encrypting for all (think of it as audio finger printing) and establishing a digital marketplace for content creators to license their wares directly to larger entities.

This Sexy Short Film Was Shot in Just a Day with the DJI Ronin & S900 Hexcopter

This Sexy Short Film Was Shot in Just a Day with the DJI Ronin & S900 Hexcopter | Filmmaking News | Scoop.it
What kind of film can you churn out after only one day of shooting? This isn't really a challenge, but a serious question: how much do you think you could get done within a 24-hour shooting period? If it was five years ago I'd say, "Psh! Probably not much," but now that there are so many compact, easy-to-use, and inexpensive cinematic tools to help you move your camera, the indie film set has never been more efficient.
