Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Budget, crew, and gear, part of Video for Photographers: 2 Filmmaking on Location.
- As photographers, we're always working with…the exposure triangle.…We have aperture, shutter and ISO.…So, if we need to achieve something,…we often have to sacrifice one or two more of the three.…In production or video productions,…there's something I like to call the production triangle,…which is the budget, the crew and the gear.…If we want more gear, we often need more people,…which will require more money.…For this specific job at the winery,…I know I'm working with a very tight budget.…
That allows me to get only one more person.…So, this is gonna be a two-man crew.…What are the tools that I will need…that two people can use to achieve…all the shots that I have on my story, on my shot list?…In the next movie, I'm going to cover…all the gear that I'm planning to bring with me…for this shot and explain to you…why I think these are the best tools…for this specific job.…
