How The Movies Do It And How You Can Too Without Breaking The Bank
One of the cool things about going to National Association of Broadcasters Show (NAB) is to get a good look at how the movies and television broadcasters do what they do. It’s fun to ogle the equipment and get good ideas on how you can do the same thing with much less expensive equipment.
In this short video I take you on a little journey around the exhibit floor to show you:
- How they light a party scene (and how you can do it too for a lot less);
- How they get those great moving shots (and how you can do the same thing with items you probably have around your office);
- What they have to have to edit movies;
- The lighting they use in green screen sets and how you can get a green screen effect in your studio.
I can’t believe the next NAB Show is in a few months (April 6 – 11)! We’ll be there this year, signing autographs of our book, Shoot To Sell: Make Money Selling Special Interest Videos and reporting from the exhibit floor.
