I’m busy this week, studio on a budget.
make your own diffuser/scrim:
note for video shooters:
if you are using high heat lights like 500 watt halogen work lamps, do not use the furnace filter, use fiber-glass mat from the auto store instead and remember wood can burn, keep it far enough from the lights that it doesn’t get too hot.
GREAT series, Don. GREAT production quality as well. Enjoyed the teasers and the two-minute diffuser how-to. Thanks for sharing. Earl
Very kind of you to say Earl. However I cannot take full credit for the production value.
I’m doing all the work on the build, as well as the shooting and editing.
To get the teasers and a few short how to clips up and published, I’m using some of the “Canned” effects from imovie…. it is a great way to get a fast, slick looking edit…. with minimal time investment… the main how-tos will be up and published over the next week and a half to two weeks.
Done with shooting at aFilmtraining Manitobaseminar.
Well, an LA producer described two shots from two different scenes I shot as “Iconic” … I worked with two teams of actors and directors. I had really good teams with very creative, talented people. What fun. What a talented bunch of people I had to work with. Cannot believe I got paid to attend this seminar! (most everyone else except the camera operators had to pay to be there.)
