Watch: The Ultimate Filmmaker's Guide to Getting the 'Film Look'
We all want our films to look cinematic. This video will show you how to do it.
Let’s start with some cold hard truth. No, buying a fancy new camera isn’t gonna do jack for your production quality, and no, having the greatest gear in the world isn’t going to magically produce a cinematic aesthetic. There are many different aspects of filmmaking that need to be done well in order to achieve the all-important “film look,” which is something filmmaker Darious Britt of D4Darious talks about extensively in this awesome video. Check it out.
This video is worth the entire 30+ minutes! Not only does Britt go into detail about different camera settings, like shutter speed, frame rate, and ISO, but he also talks about aspect ratios, audio, lighting, framing and composition, music, and so much more.
