Polarizing Filters: Powerful Filmmaking Tools by Shane Hurlbut ASC (6 videos)

Polarizing Filters: Powerful Filmmaking Tools by Shane Hurlbut ASC (6 videos) | Films | Scoop.it

Posted by Shane Hurlbut ASC on August 16, 2012

 

"My cinematography interns and I set out on a mission to showcase the many uses of a polarizing filter. Questions have come up in the past about Fader NDs and their quickness. How can a polarizer help you tell your stories?

 

Driving Miss Daisy

The most common use for a pola is to cut reflections off of car windows. When you are driving down the road, nasty glare can affect just how much you see the faces inside the vehicle. By using a pola, you can choose exactly how much reflection you want to keep of overhanging trees or buildings on your windshield, or you can choose to eliminate all reflection to see deeper in the vehicle. On the New Mexico Department of Transportation campaign, I chose to keep just a little blue reflection on the glass. If we went under trees, they were reflected."

Filmmaking Tips and Thoughts on the Industry from Do-It-All Director Steven Soderbergh, by Joe Marine (2 videos)

Filmmaking Tips and Thoughts on the Industry from Do-It-All Director Steven Soderbergh, by Joe Marine (2 videos) | Films | Scoop.it

Posted by Joe Marine on November 10, 2012

 

"You may have heard his name before, and you may even have seen some of his films, but Academy Awarding winning director Steven Soderbergh is the real deal, and an auteur in his own way. He’s one of the few directors working at the highest level who also shoots and edits his own films, and he’s a huge supporter of RED, having shot every single film on their cameras since his Che double-feature. He said that he’s going to retire from filmmaking in the very near future, so before he does, click through for six tips from the workaholic director, and an audio interview that contains some candid thoughts about the current film industry."

25 Pieces of Juicy Filmmaking Knowledge from Cinematographer Roger Deakins. By Evan Luzi

25 Pieces of Juicy Filmmaking Knowledge from Cinematographer Roger Deakins. By Evan Luzi | Films | Scoop.it

Posted by Evan Luzi on December 10, 2012

 

"Is it really worth my time to give Roger Deakins an introduction?


Surely you already know him as the talented cinematographer behind films like The Shawshank Redemption, A Beautiful Mind, and almost every Coen Brothers film since Fargo.


And by now, as a fan of filmmaking and a filmmaker, you’ve discovered that when Deakins talks, what comes out is a treasure trove of wisdom — only overshadowed by answers so candid and honest that his responses are more engaging than many movies themselves.


No — Roger Deakins needs very little introduction as a master of cinematography.

 

Instead, it’s best we just get to the point: 25 pieces of filmmaking advice from Roger Deakins himself, pulled from his website RogerDeakins.com where he interacts with fans and filmmakers on all topics from careers to cinematography basics.

10 Lessons on Filmmaking from Director Ken Loach

10 Lessons on Filmmaking from Director Ken Loach | Films | Scoop.it

Ariston Anderson:  "As a filmmaker, Loach has adopted a working style not unlike that of the characters seen in his films. Unlike the traditional Hollywood model, he’s not driven by his own race to the top, but rather by a collective spirit, a desire to create harmony on the set and to appreciate his crew for a job well done."

Is the Canon C100 Currently the Best Fully-Featured Budget Filmmaking Camera? By Joe Marine (5 videos)

Is the Canon C100 Currently the Best Fully-Featured Budget Filmmaking Camera? By Joe Marine (5 videos) | Films | Scoop.it

Posted by Joe Marine on December 24, 2012 • 

 

"The Canon C100 is an interesting addition to the Cinema EOS line. Available for about a month now, the camera spec-wise falls right in line with the Sony FS100, except it has ND filters and isn’t capable of anything higher than 30fps. It’s designed to be a budget camera from Canon — as it’s basically a shrunken C300with a different internal codec — but it’s more than twice as expensive as the nearest somewhat-affordable and high-quality DSLRs, the Canon 5D Mark III and the Nikon D800. Many have now gotten their hands on one, so let’s take a look at some of the results, and check out some more real-world footage examples."

El problema con  este tipo de películas es que les cuesta mucho ser aceptadas debido a su alto contenido político. Es una forma originalde realización, pero tiene problemas a la hora de mantenerse en un terreno neutral.

Hits like Desperado, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Sin City and Machete are rife with his loyalty to his Southern roots and his taste for in-your-face violence and vengeful protagonists. And Rodriguez’s unique filmmaking style— abrupt cuts, fast-paced camera movements and intense zooms—are as signature to him as his hyper-vivid landscapes. Click to read more.
