Today we get practical! I'll talk through the tools needed in each step of the filmmaking process. Listen in to learn more about the roles needed on a film set, camera models, stabilizers, light sets, microphones, and editing softwares.
Okay, enough theory, time to get PRACTICAL.
In this episode, I take us through the tools needed in each step of the filmmaking process.
I’ll break it into three categories -- bare bones, middle range, and high budget -- so that you can decide what tools work best for your storytelling style.
There are 9 TOPICS you need to to consider when planning to create a video.
1. You need to plan. Write out a general script or outline.
2. What people will you need? Who will be your director, producer, editor, cast… ?
3. What camera works best for this project?
4. What type of stability will you use for the camera (tripod, gimbal, monopod...)?
5. Will you need to use lights or can you shoot with natural light?
6. What audio package will you use?
7. How will you capture and store your media?
8. What program(s) will you use to edit your video?
9. How will you deliver or distribute your video when completed?
There are so many things to consider for a film shoot: money, look, tone, etc etc etc.
Each creative decision should have a purpose, and a PLAN.
Weigh your options. Then make the best decision for you.
