  1. Thank you soooooo much for your help. You are all very helpful :)
  2. Hi, I'm quite new at film directing. Can someone please give me some good advice on how to do rehearsals with the actors. For example, do you tell them what their objective is for each scene and do you explain to them each and every beat? or do you let them figure that out on their own? Thanks so much for your help :)
  3. Hi, Can someone please help me out. Does 35mm film have a higher dynamic range than video? And does 35mm have higher dynamic range than 16mm? Thanks for your help :)
  4. Hi, Can someone please help me out. I quite new at this. When you use the 3 point lighting setup, does the fill light always have to be at the eye level of the character or can it be at the same height as the key light? I was told that sometimes actors don't like it when light shines into their eyes, so that's why I'm not sure what height you should place the fill light. Thanks for your help :)
  5. Thank you so much for your help :) You're very helpful.
  6. Thanks so much for your help :) So basically when you select the objects that you want in the frame, you should think about whether they would inform the viewer about the character and it doesn't really matter what color each object is right?? Also can you please help me with my other post softness and brightness of colors? No one has replied yet :( Thanks again so much :)
  7. Thanks for your help :) I'm sorry though I'm still a bit confused :( Must each color in the frame convey a feeling? For example if we have a shot of a messy bedroom, must the colors of each objects convey a feeling?
  8. Can someone please help me out. I know this question may seem a bit silly but I just want to make it clear for me
  9. Hi, Can someone please help me out? Will changing the frame rate have an effect on the exposure? For example, if we go from 24fps to 45fps will we have to change our fstop? Thanks for your help
  10. Hi, I have a question: Must every color in the frame convey a feeling? For example, we have a shot of a man dressed in orange walking in a green forest. Must the orange of the man convey a feeling and must the green of the forest convey a feeling too? Please don't be harsh I'm new at this :) Thanks for you help :)
  11. Hi, Can someone please help me out :) I've learned that bright colors are vibrant and energetic while pastel colors are calm and soothing. I've also learned that blues and greens are calming too. But what if you have a bright blue or a bight green? Would the convey a calming or energetic feeling? Same thing goes for warm colors. I've learned that they are energetic and cheerful but what if we have a pastel red or a pastel orange. Would they convey calmness or energy? This is what's confusing to me. I know that in films it's all based on the context and that you can use any color to convey any emotion as long as you use that color several times. But here I'm talking about photos. Thanks for your help :)
  12. Thank you soooo much. It's now clear to me :) So rhythm is like the structure of the scene isn't it?
  13. What's the difference between rhythm and pace in film?
  14. I'm sorry but I'm still a bit confused :(
