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

7 Tips To Help Improve Your Camera Work

The video camera is something that intimidates many people, even the people behind the camera! With just a couple of steps, you also can be an excellent shooter of your family films. 1. Understand Your Camera You should understand the fundamentals of how to use it, while you do not need to understand every last feature of your camera. This can be excellent 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 folks to take away from your pictures? What do you need them to remember? Is it the activities in the shot? Consider investing in a better mic, when it’s a private interview. 3. Create Yourself Once you have figured out your primary goal of the shoot, be sure to get an establishing shot at the start of filming and you need to take a hint from the master’s. Or maybe a fast shot of a signal naming the play or the front of the school. Once you have created for your crowd “where” you’re, then you’re able to alter your shots with closer-in shots (called medium and close up shots.) 4. Let The Actions Tell The Story...

The way The Web Is Helping Independent Film Directors....

by TheCincyKid An independent movie is the latest strategy to break the barrier between directors, producers, and optimistic film actors and Hollywood. But it wasn’t always so difficult before the 1990’s, the independent film community hardly existed! So what’s making the independent film industry mainstream with box office movies? Technology and Independent Films Throughout the 1990’s, there were many improvements in technology. Software editing applications, recorders, cameras, as well as the Internet communities which exist now were just beginning to emerge. But technology was not the only cause of the independent film motion- the increase in popularity of the Internet is mostly to blame. The largest hurdle that independent film makers want to clear is receiving their picture to the masses. Just then can critique and progress be made. And if work and enough production value was put into the movie, it isn’t common for independent film programmers to make the jump into Hollywood immediately. The Internet is one media outlet in which independent film originators should benefit from. The World Wide Web has created many pop culture happening notably the presence of the viral video.
