How to Achieve the DSLR Look in Film-Making

 

 

 

This is my second shared post on film-making. My previous post was about camera angles. This time around, it’s about achieving the pro-film look (think Hollywood or similar) with your projects. Of course, you need the proper equipment (unless your camera has the settings mentioned in this video, already), and proper post-production software.

I have my own film project, “RYO”, that I hope I can apply these techniques to, someday.

Good luck!!

On managing your self-isolation mental health and well-being, how are you holding up?

This is my third post on the Coronavirus epidemic. My first post was about some preventive steps. I’m sure many have already heard the same information from various media. As the situation grew worse globally, well-intentioned people were trying to share correct information.

Yesterday, I posted some links to different sites to get correct stats on the virus. I simply wanted to offer options for accurate information.

Today, I discovered this great video on managing the personal mental side of all of this. The tone of the video is calming and practical, so please watch and share. It offers alot of useful tips to help someone filter what they hear…and temper it with practicality and positivity.

Since the news of CV19 broke, we hear different numbers from different sources everyday about different stats. No matter the source, I think these infosites get alot of traffic, since quarentines have started around the world.

Some people LIVE for stats…how about you?

I’ve heard of WorldOMeters…but never checked the page. How is it, compared to the WHO and CDC websites? Who do you trust? Which makes you feel better about the situation?

Here in Japan, I usually refer to Kyodo News…they have a interactive graphic, showing stats for Japan. It’s been enough for me, since I am able to keep up with infect rate in my prefecture, at least.
