Great tips Jim! I enjoyed that and subscribed to your channel. Look forward to seeing more.
Hey Jim I enjoyed your video and you made some good points on how to balance time and quality. Will definitely put that to use.
Love, love, LOVE this! Great information, and fantastic encouragement for indie filmmakers!
Oh, and I love "Every Frame a Painting" 's expansion on Steven Speilberg's owners. SO GOOD!
@Jjm I love your grip truck, I could do with one always on hand. You are spot on that with a rushed time limit, the quick but effective shots add richer layers after a Master. EG “worms eye view” “pull in/out” “zolly” ETC. Time is luxury and on some low budget sets blocking and shot listing is a tiny window of opportunity.
Oh waw thank you for sharing, this was really cool to watch. When we shoot stuff it's always a low budget things and we do things in a very similar way because most of the time we only have the location and crew for a day.
My partner actually wrote a blog about our recent project a couple of weeks ago.
Like Leya Marincic said this was very interesting. Thank you.
Any time we shoot a narrative project we do extensive preproduction to optimize our time. I've actually created a spreadsheet that let's me calculate how much time we need to shoot something and it's pretty spot on.
