  • LEARNING TO FAIL « Wide Open Camera
    completely different The music video director Sam Brown who I respect enormously makes the same video every time he steps into the ring It s a very good video and it s served him well for the last 15 years but the moment I see his work I know it s his Is this a bad thing No it s not at all it s just not the way I like to work But he s been a lot more successful than I have so who s right Over the last 18 months coinciding with the rapid uptake of cheap filmmaking tools I ve been sickened by the deluge of unoriginal work I keep seeing Very occasionally I see something that has a spark of flair but mostly it s just the same old shit someone else does better rehashed and rehashed again Most filmmakers can t make that leap Staring at a blank piece of paper and creating a unique and creative solution straight out of your own head is very difficult The temptation to go online and dig around for some inspiration is too strong Just try it one of these days Creative disciplines always require two ideologically opposed battles the battle of ideation and the battle of execution The one requires you to throw all the toys out of the pram the other to put them all back in again The one requires a bottomless pit of nerve and talent the other requires a bottomless pit of nerve and talent I d argue that most filmmakers these days peek out of the pram lob a few things over the side then think better of it and rearrange what they ve already got noisily and with great enthusiasm I directed this It s not good Failure Fear of failure You are a cruel mistress If you play football soccer sorry then there are many levels you can get involved at depending on your skill level Filmmaking tends to be less accessible You re either good enough not good at all or you re excellent At least in people s perceptions There s very little room for failure And yet you have to be prepared to fail if you re going to be any good at all My advice Stop watching other people s films For a whole month In that month set yourself a task that involves shooting something you would never ever normally shoot Hire a PD150 not a DSLR edit it on Premiere not Final Cut Pro cast an old woman as an action lead Go out there explore innovate get scared and be prepared to fail This is the only way any of us are ever going to escape this sickening sea of sameness that s destroying the critical faculties of us so called cinephiles You never know what you might learn And who cares if you do make a dud It took Kubrick three massive films to find the Kubrick voice Ridley Scott only

  • Shooting in Senegal (Part 1): Talent Comes First « Wide Open Camera
    take place in the villages and some take place in the city of Mbour Our cast is all from the village and we ve found that they are extremely uncomfortable being filmed in the city What we have done to make them more comfortable is shoot from as far away as possible This means throwing the Canon 70 200 on a 1 6x crop camera and putting lavs on talent Fortunately this adheres to our plan to compress the city scenes and shoot the village scenes on wider lenses to portray the vastness of the land We did not plan on shooting at the 200mm range of the lens but we make little sacrifices to make talent more comfortable For the village scenes we have the luxury of shooting closer to talent but we try to stay out of their eyelines as much as possible and we get TONS of broll and cutaways to use when they spike the camera We have found that their body language tells the story just as well if not better than their dialogue This is tricky with only two cameras and few chances for second and third takes so I try to grab this footage before we start to roll Granted this is our first few days of shooting It takes some time to get everybody on the same page with regards to what needs to happen in order to make a great film It s a bit like walking on eggshells but I d rather befriend our subjects before asking them to do anything that may jeopardize their comfort It also wins me points with director Jeremy Teicher Ultimately it s a balancing act between what looks best for camera and what works best for performance The most important part of making talent feel comfortable hasn t had to do with camera at all I actually spend more time dancing and poking fun of myself for being a toubab whitey than I do behind the camera I ve picked up on the local customs mostly napping and complaining which is easy for me and I do my best to fit in I eat things I d rather not eat and touch things I d rather not touch but it s for the good of the film I suppose the most important part of shooting in Africa is respecting the people that you are working with and joining their culture to the best of your ability I have to say that I m having a hell of a time doing so Check out the project web site here Click here to see Part 2 of this article Sileye smoking next to our two Ikan backpacks Coumba Mom checking playback on our Zacuto Flip EVF Our Sound Crew Papa Adama and our Driver Simon B Camera Operator Luke Hanlein chillin with the goats Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as

    a barbed wire fence by a news car a couple of days ago at this year s Tour De France you ll understand completely Drivers get the hump they don t like being mugged off by a cyclist It can be very dangerous And that s when I had a brainwave When the angry driver pulls up behind me to shout insults I whip out my trusty iPhone and start filming him I have a license plate I have a car I have all the power Example The building next door is being renovated huge building works going on all day The building regulations state that no work must be carried out before 8 30 Every morning they begin thumping and banging at 7am Yesterday I d had enough and went down to confront them as they were caving in a shopfront with hammers and saws Ten builders Eastern European burly I started taking pictures of all of them The foreman came out in a flash and we got it all sorted out very amicably The news channels are constantly awash with mobile phone footage It s getting to a point where a crisis doesn t really merit the title unless a crew of mobile video ops were on the scene We re incredibly privileged as filmmakers given access and permission In London the rights of street photographers are being seriously debated and the threat of terrorism looms large whenever anyone takes out a camera And yet it s still an incredibly powerful piece of equipment I can become quite blasé about what I do but I know how much I squirm when it s turned on me I love reportage photography more than any other for this very reason We should never forget just how powerful our basic tools can be Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography He just happened to be in the right place at the right time Related Posts GET MORE OUT OF YOUR POWERBASE 70 Posted on 02 February 2011 Why I Shoot By Chris Marino Posted on 24 April 2011 NAB 2012 RedRock MicroRemote Posted on 20 April 2012 A workflow for shooting raw video on the 5D Posted on 16 May 2013 BMCC Now Available in MFT and EOS BMPCC BMC4K Shipping July 25th Posted on 26 June 2013 Quicktake Mini Cardellini to 1 4 20 Ballmount Adapter Posted on 30 May 2011 http twitter com bradbelltv Brad Bell In London the rights of street photographers are being seriously debated and the threat of terrorism looms large whenever anyone takes our a camera Does anyone know what the connection between photographers and terrorism is Terrorists are avid photographers Inside every photographer there s a terrorist trying to get
