Izzy Video Ideas Episode 1 - Trying Something New Here
I decided to try something new here. Take a listen… :)
Meet the Shooter: An Audio Interview with Art Adams, Director of Photography
Do you want to learn how a Director of Photography thinks? Want to know how they approach a scene, make decisions on lights, or tackle difficult problems on set? One of the best ways to find out is by talking to one.
Once again I have something new to share with you. I recorded this audio interview with Art Adams, a knowledgeable Director of Photography. He’s brilliant and willing to share valuable information.
If you have any interest in lighting, composition, working on set, moving the camera, and the cine side to video, I highly recommend you give this a listen:
Camcorder Microphone Options
Diffusion Panels for Outdoor Video Lighting
In this video, I demonstrate the effect of using different levels of diffusion for outdoor lighting. Diffusion panels are essential tools for shooting video outdoors.
How to Soften a Hard Light Source
In this video, I demonstrate several different ways to turn a hard light into a soft light source. Many people look best under a soft light, so it’s helpful to know how to create one.
Dramatic Lighting [Trailer]
How do you create dramatic lighting? And how do you light for video in a small room?
This video will answer these questions. In the tutorial, I show you the tools and techniques to create high-contrast, dramatic lighting. And the great thing about this technique is that it’s ideal for shooting in a small room.
If you need to shoot interview-style videos in a small room, you’ll likely find this tutorial helpful.
And the results can be visually awesome.
This video is available to members only.
Unlike anything that comes out of Washington, this is stuff you can use. Well done Izzy.
Best Video Podcast
Izzy Video makes learning more about video shooting and Final Cut Express exciting because it is easy to apply and put into practice. I appreciate Izzy's easy-to-understand lessons that always leave me wanting to learn MORE! I also listen to Izzy's other podcast - Foolish Adventure. I am learning so much - it is business-changing information. At the risk of sounding dramatic, I think it is actually life-changing material.
