Film Riot – Mondays:
Ryan answers the viewer questions including character development and Upercut the Butt remixes (my personal favorite). He also recommends the short film Duet directed by Glen Keane. The only criticism I have of the film is the unrealistic lifetime of the dog. What a great animation. It looks like it’s frame by frame art, but I could be wrong. Have a look by clicking the link above and make sure to comment on your thoughts on this episode of Film Riot with Ryan Connolly below in the comments box. If you want to edit like Ryan and many others, make sure to get your Adobe Premiere Pro CC [Digital Membership] and you’re good to go. Once you edit something, send us a clip or trailer and we’ll be glad to feature it here on the site. Until next time, keep making movies!
The Philip Bloom VBAG
This episode Ryan reviews the “V” Bag (VBAG), Philip Bloom endorsed camera stabilization bag. It looks like the water bags that you put in the back of a truck, but instead of putting in water you actually suck out the air to lock your camera into position. So if you need a somewhat affordable way to stabilize your camera just about anywhere, then check out the “V” Bag.
Rhode Smart Lav
This episode goes into detail on the Rhode Smart Lav. I personally dig it. I paid approximately that much for a set of lav mics that aren’t wireless so recording to an iphone is certainly a better alternative. That is as long as you get some sort of sync sound. Anyway, Ryan goes into his detail about the mic system in this episode and there is some serious cutdown challenges going on with Josh.
Super Flight Takeoff
In this episode, Ryan goes into the details of making a Superman take-off look realistic. It’s surprisingly simple and you will enjoy some of the other uses of these techniques. There are some great outtakes at the end and you’ll love how Josh makes his “Booty Clap!”
Keep looking for the first Indie Sessions episode coming soon and keep making movies!
Visual Effects Details From Film Riot Film – Proximity
Great tutorial from Ryan Connolly on this episode of Film Riot and how he pulled off some of the more minor effects shots that make a film much more believeable. Without these minor tweaks, the film would be less intense and would remove you from the emersion of the film. This one is detailed and step by step with links to more tutorials on specific processes to pull off effects shots. Enjoy and leave a comment.
