Easy Filmmaking Tips to Instantly Improve Your Videos

If you're hoping to improve your videos this year, there is a wealth of information to tap into. In this video, Vuhlandes goes through some easy filmmaking tips that can make all the difference.

Whether you're creating videos or still images, there is always a way to improve your work. Over the years I have taken and integrated an unknowably large amount of advice into my workflow and sometimes it's the easy tips and tricks that can make the most profound difference. To this day, I will still seek out videos like this one, and articles in the same vein, hoping to get a new nugget of information or see something expressed in a new way.

One of the tips in this video is one I still subconsciously "check" when I'm creating images: foreground. I was introduced to the concept of foreground interest not long after I first started and was experimenting with landscape photography (which never really stuck!) I couldn't understand why people thought it was so important; my most successful image was featured on Flickr's homepage for a week (a big deal back then) but didn't have any. What I now realize is that my image had strong (albeit probably accidental) composition, regardless of the foreground. However, it is something worth considering in everything you frame, even if it's simply something blurry obscuring a part of the image.
