1. Choosing The Best Gardens For Filming Locations...

Here at Dorak Film, we are always looking for picturesque locations for various shoots. Luckily, there are plenty of such locations here in the UK. Selecting a location, arranging a calendar date (or more than one date) for filming, clearing traffic, charting air traffic patterns, studying weather patterns – all of these go into the selection of a location. We’ve found that we save a lot of time and frustration by hiring companies to arrange all of this for us. These businesses have staff who can make the phone calls, send and respond to emails, and take care of the myriad of other details that go into planning a shoot. Connections It pays to have connections when reserving space for filming. Sometimes, Dorak doesn’t have connections in all the right places. So, we source out a lot of our location searches. This is especially helpful when looking for great gardens with the appropriate lawn services and upkeep for filming locations. People who have beautiful gardens don’t want them trampled. Estates often spend a large portion of their upkeep budgets on their grounds, and while they may be glad to receive the fees from filming crews, they need to be reassured that no harm will come to their property. The British Film Commission has a great service that not only provides connections to some of the finest gardens in the UK, they can even provide a crew. Their screen agencies...

2. Surfing Montage At Dorak Film...

Here at Dorak Film, we have a new project in the works that is sure to awe and inspire our readers. It will make them envious, too, because of all the cool equipment we get to use. We are putting together a surfing montage using some of the newest high resolution FPS cameras on the market. The video will feature shots of water, waves, and surfers. With this kind of resolution, the videos and stills are breathtaking. Our chief videographer fills us in on how he does it. Know Your Subject Josh, our lead videographer, says that the first skill he requires of any photographer shooting sports is an understanding of the sport. With surfing, especially, he says that knowing the sport enables the photographer to anticipate the next move. If a wave is perfect for cut backs, the photographer needs to be able to anticipate the move to get the best shot. Otherwise, he misses a great opportunity and an even greater shot. Using a video camera doesn’t get the photographer off the hook, either. Much of the filming he does is with a telephoto lens, and there is little room for mistakes. Therefore, knowing the cues that something exciting is about to happen – such as the surfer building velocity before he pops a trick – makes the photo shoot more successful. Know Your Equipment You have to have a fast camera, and a great telephoto lens. Dorak...

7 Tips To Help Improve Your Camera Work

The video camera is something that intimidates many folks, even the people behind the camera! Before I started Dorak Film, I used to shoot promotional films and take pictures for a Cedar Timber Company. With only a few techniques you can learn to improve how you shoot your films. 1. Comprehend Your Camera While you don’t need to understand every last feature of your camera, you should comprehend the fundamentals of how exactly to use it. This can be exceptional for many scenarios involving filming. 2. Understand Why You Are Filming Before you turn on your camera, consider what you are about to picture. What’s it that you need people to take away from your images? What do you desire them to remember? Is it the activities in the shot? Consider investing in a better mic, when it is a private interview. 3. Create Yourself Be sure to get an establishing shot at the start of filming after you have figured out your primary goal of the shoot and you have to take a hint from the master’s. Or perhaps a fast shot of a signal naming the play or the front of the school. 4. Let The Actions Tell The Story Too often, people consider they need to do...
