    young directors to get out and shoot a ton of stuff early on Get the mistakes out make them early and start picking through the wreckage of your terrible work to find the tiny gems that you ll take with you into your next project The problem with DSLRs is that they flatter us In the old days when you had stinky DV cameras to work with and tiny little sensors you had to work so much harder to get things to look good I think it s a shame we don t have that anymore because people are mistaking strong aesthetics for strong filmmaking Not the same thing at all It used to take a long time to get a short film made but now it doesn t You used to have to trawl through the festival circuit to achieve peer recognition Not anymore This is the greatest gift of DSLR filmmaking an accelerated education However speedy it might be it s still an education and you still need it Thanks Ira 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 Kickstarter Launch The Board Of Education Posted on 26 September 2011 This Is Us A Film in Africa Stage 1 Posted on 12 May 2011 Making Film Podcast with Thomas Roberts Posted on 21 July 2011 Ilya Polyakov Beautifully said Sponsors Projects New Product Recent Posts Four Foot Soft Light Wand By Michael Sutton DIY Under 70 Red Announces Red Raven

  • SUBTEXT « Wide Open Camera
    acting So why s this post called subtext Well it s to introduce an idea that I hope will nestle in the back of your mind and inform the way you think about your work from here on in Subtext is the language beneath the language we use It s the implied meaning and it s discovery requires an active impulse from the discoverer It s also the defining characteristic of film Cinema is a show not tell medium The great joy of cinematic drama is in the viewer s discovery of meaning for themselves coming to an understanding all by yourself and the skill of the filmmaker resides in their ability to facilitate that process I ve lost you haven t I Let s say I shoot a simple two shot of a couple arguing then cut to a shot of a burnt meal You d get it would you not That s a very simple example but there s absolutely no need for either of the characters to mention the food in fact it would be more powerful if they didn t Subtext exists below language in the implied meaning of what we say and it s incredibly important for film because it creates drama For subtext read subterfuge We all do it manipulating language so that our meaning is clear yet the words we speak mean something completely different Example I fall over you ask are you okay I say yes I m fine Am I actually hurt Yes but I m making light of it Why Possibly because I don t want to show weakness possibly because I m too proud possibly because I don t want you to worry You see The implied meaning in that simple phrase is deep and layered and an audience will get it but you have to be brave enough to let them come to it all by themselves By directing your actors and by directing the camera It s not enough simply to render a scene you have to really understand what s going on Good writing is underpinned by a vast and intricate scaffolding of subtext So bear that in mind when thinking about shooting drama And also bear in mind that this is really really really hard You can go mad unravelling the subtext and trying to piece it all together as a cohesive scene As always practice makes perfect Most filmmakers will never advance beyond the mediocre because they just don t get this As always with us WOC lot we challenge ourselves to be better and hope to bring you along too 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
