Wonder how our theatrical release is going? Here's a review from a family who saw it last night.
Join me tonight at Lincoln Plaza for a Q&A after the 5:00 show and at Angelika after the 7:10. It will be shown here in in NYC all week. On Friday it opens in Philly and all over California, then around the country.
A perfect example of when to frame horizontally. The whole whale would have been in the shot, plus background and more. Be careful shooters. Make the most of your videos if you want people to like them.
Peter and the Farm, a beautiful, poignant and powerful film, just released theatrically, proving once again that the drama of documentaries are unmatched.
This is a fantastic video, but what a missed opportunity shooting it vertically. Had it been shot horizontally, it would have taken in so much more of the scene. And, why stay in one place? Letting the musicians move within the frame is exactly right, but why not change the angle every so often. There's an audience, people are walking by. The filmmaking could be much more dynamic with a few little moves that would not call attention to them.
With the different social sites to post two, we must make a choice about which is the main outlet and shoot accordingly. With millions of views, it's clear that this one should have been shot horizontally.
Hoping you can help...
Excited to teach a Ready, Steady, Shoot filmmaking class at the Edmonton Short Film Festival (remotely) on the 17th.
In an hour and a half they'll be making better films!
"Target of Opportunity: The US Navy SEALs and the Murder of Jennifer Evans," a powerful film, is available on Vimeo for free.
