Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Cooking and filmmaking, part of Video for Photographers: 1 Filmmaking Essentials.
- I want to share one more thing with you.…I obviously love filmmaking and I also love cooking.…And it is amazing how similar they are.…Here's why.…You need time to find the right recipe and gather…the best ingredients.…In video the more planning you do, the better.…And the key ingredient is always a great story.…It is ideal to have enough time to marinate certain dishes.…In video it is ideal to scout your locations and…very carefully plan all your shots.…
You will need plenty of time to cook which often requires…following many steps in a specific order and…having the right temperature and the right ingredients.…In a video production you will need the right gear…and settings.…The prepared meal is often enjoyed by others…within minutes or even seconds.…The same exact thing happens with videos.…And unless your guests are also into cooking…very few of them will realize how much time and work…is behind each meal.…The same applies to video productions.…
The best dishes and techniques are the ones improved…over time.…
In this course, Emmy-winning filmmaker Eduardo Angel helps bridge the gap between photography and film—between still pictures and moving images—by showing what it takes to transition to video. The course covers the most essential video production techniques, from framing and lighting for continuous shots to directing the viewer's attention and incorporating camera movement and sound—Eduardo even provides a brief overview of his post-production workflow. By following along with Eduardo and his team, you'll understand why these concepts are so important and start applying them to your video and hybrid projects right away.
