So I've decided to never start a film project again without a release date. Deadlines, as it turns out, are good! When I look back at my passed projects, the ones with a deadline were more focused and had a higher chance of being completed than the ones without.
In this tutorial I go over how I got the warm tropical look for a short film I did last spring. I wanted to show that the weather was warm, but I didn't want to simply make everything look orange. Instead, I saturated the greens and blues to give it a spring feel.
The concept of renting rather than buying gear isn't new to the professional video production world. What would be the point of buying expensive gear that won't be used often when you can just rent? The thing is, this concept isn't just limited to "the pros."
I have nothing to teach this week, but I do want to share this gallery I came across earlier this week about some Filmmakers in Uganda. After scrolling through it all, it quickly turned out to be one of the most motivating stuff I've seen as a Filmmaker.

This is my follow up post on keeping morale high on set. You can read part 1 by clicking here. In Part 1 I mostly went over some of the causes of low morale on set, and in this post I'll go over some of the solutions. Let's get to it!
Web Series are gaining popularity more and more everyday. With so many people watching videos online, it's not as required to have a major distribution deal to get your project seen. In today's post, I interview Filmmaker Eric Won on his indie web series "The Division."
Would you believe me if I told you that getting actors for your low budget movie isn't some impossible task that only big budget movies can pull off? I used to worry about not being able to get actors for my projects, but now I realize that was irrational thinking.
I love color grading! From music videos, to short films, to even a simple interview, color manipulation is all very fun for me. I took a look back at my "What would you like to learn" post and noticed that a lot of you requested tutorials on color grading, so here we are!
I've been wanting to make a post about morale for a while now. Keeping morale high on set is one of the little things that tend to get overlooked a lot, but it's one of the most important tasks you can do on any film set. Let's start with defining morale.
