I haven't been on the forums in a while(I don't even live in Colorado anymore!), but it's good to be back!
When I originally got on this forum, I was starting out making home movies as a teenager, but later found my niche in corp. video and have now made thousands of dollars producing short (2-5 min) online advertising/demo videos for various local businesses.
So, you've got a small budget and you finally believe that the audio you capture for your project is just as important as the video, (we told you so!) but you can only purchase one mic. Shotgun mics on boom poles are the mainstay in Hollywood, but maybe you just shoot weddings in your spare time, or do a local commercial every now and then to help make ends meet. Well, here's some pros and cons of the most common mic types, and what they're good at.
hello there! I am doing a shoot next month and the challenge is to have a good lighting set up inside a bathroom. The commercial is about a urinal and how gross it can be (maybe 1-2 guys peeing and exaggerate the splash on the urinal etc.). My question is how do you properly light up a scene/place? I only have tried the regular 3 point lighting set up (interviews) and I am not really sure how to do it yet. I've been watching a lot of lighting tutorials but I can't seem to find the right one for me. Can anybody help me with this or send me a good tutorial link so I can study it more?
Hello, I'm a graphic designer but have done some small video projects in the past. I was approached by a potential client wanting 130 1 minute commercials for his custom pen website. I attached the following proposal, thinking my rates are fair and he's telling me to quote him lower (even though he won't get other quotes nor tell me a budget he has in mind!) Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!!
$225 per 1 minute commercial (10% discount based on 150+ commercials, anything under 150 is $250)
