Hello, I want to know how PEOPLE film there movies. Not big people like filmriot because they probably have lots of cameras at the same time, but for like Freddie w how do they film in different angles?
Do they stop recording and tell the actor to stop and carry on once he starts recording again in a different angle?
But the videos i watch on youtube some of them say they use just ONE camera.
Do you guys have any suggestions?
Stop the camera?
Keep the cameras rolling but just run into the next angle and at the end just edit out when you go to the next angle?
- Hope I get a fast responce.
I'll take a wild guess and say you didn't know where else to post your question.
I've never heard of filmriot, are they REALLY big people? When I think "big", I think James Cameron, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and people like that.
First thing: start out small. Don't tackle anything big. PLAN OUT YOUR SHOOT: DON'T WING IT!
Here's a link to a whole bunch of information on single-camera shooting techniques:
If you ask questions like, "do I let the camera roll between takes?", you REALLY need to do a good deal of homework on shooting, no matter how anxious you are to get going. The investment in time NOW will save you a world of grief later.
And no, you don't let the camera roll between takes.
Ahh okay thanks, also I didin't mean like BIG BIG Directors filmriot are abit like corridor digital or freddie w.. you probably wont know who they are, but they have decent big cameras etc.. amazing at editing and stuff. ( ON YOUTUBE)
I am totally unfamiliar with shooters/directors/editors on YouTube, so "Freddy W" does not register.
Do you have some useful URL's, so that we can see their work? Just observing, might be helpful to answer your question.
I am much more familiar with shooters, such as William Friedkin, Vilmos Zsigmond, Gordon Willis, etc., so am just not current on what is being done now.
