[News] A Post-Apocalyptic Series That Shares Filmmaking Tutorials

There is a new web series in the works that centers around 1 man along in a broken and empty New York City. Why do you as a filmmaker care?

See the trailer and first BTS tutorial in the full post.

[BTSV] Contest: The Making of a 30 Second Ad Is No Joke

See how much work goes into a 30 second (soccer themed) water spot. This is one of the few entries where I thought watching the BTS vid was far cooler than the final product.

[BTSV] Contest: Aurora Lifestyle

Michael Ericsson: “There is my latest behind the scenes video for a shoot I did back in early September. I’ve had it in my head for a while to create some sort of tribute video to the late Dean Collins. After seeing the call for entries from Fstoppers.com, I decided to run with it.”

[BTSV] Contest: Digital Light Sculpting with a Projector

“…One projector (the one I used was less than 200 bucks used) can replace many traditional strobes + modifiers for a fraction of the cost.
