How did the filmmakers get this shot back then?
by ryan elder 2 weeks ago
My DP said I should get the steadicam for a lot of the shots I want, but I kind of want to save money if I can and not sure if I need it, but will get it, if it's a must for certain shots. However, in

Okay thanks, I tried using a person in the wheelchair before though, but the footage did have vibration in, and I was told it was because a wheelchair is just not meant for smooth camera movement. Plu
Should I choose between a dolly or a slider?
by ryan elder 2 days ago
I am deciding which of the two would be better. A slider is slight cheaper it seems, depending on which one you buy. Here's two movie clips with some dolly moves, and I wonder if a slider would be jus
Re: Should I choose between a dolly or a slider?

Another thing that worries me about the slider is that it's more difficult to hide the track since it's much higher up compared to a dolly. So I would have to zoom past the track which could be proble
Why do so many audio professionals prefer dry audio when it comes to Foley?
by ryan elder 2 weeks ago
Basically in my experience working with the audio professionals, they prefer to record all the Foley in a studio, and then want to add the room reverb and filters later in post. But I feel this create

Okay thanks. I don't mean for everyone to wait on set for the sound person to do it. What I mean is after the scene is done, and the actors can go home, then have the audio people stick around and rec
Can this type of shot be pulled off with a gimbal?
by ryan elder 7 days ago
I was going to shoot a short film but the steadicam operator became unavailable, and I am wondering how to pull off the camera movement only two weeks before the shoot. My DP suggested that we order a

Okay thanks, but what if I shot at a deep enough DOF to hold focus like F11 or something like that

by ryan elder 2 weeks ago
I am directing a documentary film project and have to decide on an aspect ratio. I will be shooting interviews intercut with historical footage. I already have a lot of the historical footage chosen w

Oh okay, thanks, it didn't look blurry to me when I zoomed on the historical footage. But if switching aspect ratios is best, then I will do that.
What can I do about this audio mixing problem with sound effects?
by ryan elder 7 days ago
I graduated from film school and on our final film project, basically after I am done completing the video edit and have locked picture, we the students, then turn over our projects to the school who
Re: What can I do about this audio mixing problem with sound effects?
by ryan elder 3 days ago
Yeah, the school said that the audio engineer really dropped the ball. I wish the school taught us to do our own sound mixing rather than sending it off to someone else for our projects to hand in. Pl
Would I be able to get different aspect ratios on my DSLR?
by ryan elder 1 week ago
I am shooting a movie with a Canon 5D most likely, but I don't want to shoot in 16:9 video necessarily, which it can only shoot in. I was thinking maybe 2.20:1 or 2.39:1. I researched this and other p

by ryan elder 7 days ago
Okay thanks. I went to the store but they didn't have monitors that were specifically designed to add different overlays, grids, aspect ratios, etc. Do you know of any cheap monitor brands particularl
How can I make a sky replacement, not look green screened?
by ryan elder 2 months ago
Basically I want to do the day for night effect, and I watched different tutorials on how to do it. The tutorials say to use a sky replacement and darken the sky replacement so it looks like night. I

by ryan elder 2 months ago
Okay thanks. It's just that shooting at night is much more expensive cause you need much brighter lights, and that's the problem for me. Plus I can shoot whatever I want at night and no one cares, as
No sound in premiere pro on videos, why?
by ryan elder 4 months ago
Basically I am editing someone else's short film, and the video files he gave me have no sound in Premiere Pro. Does anyone know why this The sound on the audio tracks is turned on. But even when I pl
Re: No sound in premiere pro on videos, why?
by ryan elder 4 months ago
No, no modulation at all. But outside of Premiere, it plays just fine. Premiere does however say that it's 'conforming', all the video clips, but it's taking forever compared to usual. So could this b
Time stretch won't stretch over 3 seconds, why?
by ryan elder 5 months ago
Basically I have a com that is 4 and a half seconds almost. One of the layers is just one frame, that I want to stretch out to last the entire comp. But for some reason the time stretch effect will on

Okay thank you very much for the help. I rendered out a high quality version of what I have so far to be safe, but could tinker with it some more down the road, when the project is all finished and I
Positions of layers move when I close out of Premiere Pro. Why?
by ryan elder 5 months ago
I am working on a special effect for a short film in Premiere Pro that requires several layers of video. However, when I put all the videos in the positions I want, and then save and close out of Prem
