Lights, Camera, Sound...
Action! Of course it's every filmmaker's dream to be the one to say those words, but it takes a lot of work to get there. You have to know your history, your jargon phrases and everything in between. So, that's why I'm here. I may not write too many academic posts about film and photography, but for those of you who want a piece of the magic, I'll provide you some tricks of the trade, so you can bet this isn't going to be just another personal blog..
Not only that, if I'm working on a project that might spark your interest, you could get involved. So, I might just post up ads for positions on the set! Of course, I won't be posting up major roles, but you'll have opportunities to be there or at least have a hand.
So keep your eyes peeled and your ears up. Not to mention have a few jargon phrases up your sleeve, just to impress those big wigs who've had a bit more experience than you.
My Little Piece Of Advice
Want to know how to make a film?
Remember to always get permission from the people you're renting from. If you're using a resident building, let everyone, who lives there, know that you're using their space, to film. If it's an apartment building, and your'e going to be making a lot of noise, let the residents know. If you can, get them to sign a liability form, that way, you won't be held responsible for whatever complaint they have, since they have agreed to let you film in their building.
Let's Get Technical
Every month I will post up at least one academic topic related to film, TV and photography, so keep checking this space for that article, especially if you're looking to learn more about film production, theory and history, or if you're a student at university. I'm sure I can pass on what I learned when I was a student.
