Hello, Good People! I’m a one-man band, DIY type filmmaker and frequently find myself acting as my own cinematographer (and literally everything else unfortunately). I have great respect for the craft and would love to improve my skills until I can afford a proper professional to do the job. I’ve been shooting my own stuff forever and feel like I’ve lost perspective. Nice images aren’t enough and I need to work on my shot choices and motivation. People were very kind about it on reddit and I'm just looking for some different perspectives. I made this short (starring my mom) for a competition. I used the one LED panel I had to fill in some spots, but 95% was shot with DIY practicals ( loose light bulbs, mobile phones, etc...) and a whole lot of duct tape to keep them in place! 😆 Any tips or feedback would be tremendously appreciated! Thanks again! Here's the short: P. S. This was shot on the BMPCC4K with a 50mm f1.2 SLR Magic lens.
My goal is to be a master at visual storytelling. I'm captivated by light and shadow, by using moving images to share an idea. I'm a novice filmmaker and have a long way to go before I'm an expert at any aspect of filmmaking -- but the passion and commitment to learn are ever present. What avenues of education and experience do you believe lead to a greater understanding of visual storytelling through film? What are your most powerful memories or impressions of making a film? How have those moments shaped or guided you as a filmmaker? Thank you in advance for what you have to share. I'm excited to learn and grow! Holly
