5 common video production mistakes.

June 19, 2009

1. Many producer/directors think about audio as an afterthought, (remember: good clean audio in = good clean audio out).

2. Now that people shoot on DV tape or digitally, they tend to shoot way too much footage, that bogs down the post production process (especially if you work in television and have strict deadlines).

3. People forget, when shooting any kind of narrative story, you should always have some kind of storyboard, to help communicate your ideas to the cast and crew.

4. When shooting a live event always take extra tape and battery’s, and keep a tape unwrapped and ready to go in an easily accessible pocket.

5. Even when shooting an outside night shot, its generally a good idea to bring extra lighting.



5 ideas for artistic inspiration.

June 17, 2009

1. Work in a day job that you hate so much it motivates you to do more, faster and better, so you can get the hell out.

2. People watch in public spaces such as parks, trains, malls, or just walking down the sidewalk. Most people are even more strange and awkward then most minds can even imagine.

3. Get into passionate arguments with everyone you know, eventually pushing them all away, so that you can find the center to your own personal misery, and draw from its pain.

4. Pretend you are a mad scientist, and begin to experiment with everything and everyone, and eventually something creative will come out of it.

5. Go POOP, for some random and strange reason, I get many light bulb popping ideas flashing into my brain as I drop the kids off in the pool.
