Is film school worth the money for someone who is interested in making art or independent films?

User Avatar
In art films, the creative aspect is most important, so in that sense, spending a lot of money on film school will not make you a better filmmaker. Nobody can teach you creativity. But there is no getting around the fact that you will need to have a lot of technical knowledge... mostly for post-production stuff. Unless you have the dicipline to sit and read an Avid instructional book cover to cover or the patience to deal with the many setbacks that will arise when you can't make it through the book... I recommend going to school not for a degree, but for a few classes that you know you will use. The biggest film school plus is networking. Almost everyone you meet will be willing to help you if you are willing to return the favor. You will also learn about all the things you've tried not to think about in the past, such as obtaining shooting permits from the city and getting recorded permission from every one of your actors to use the footage you shoot of them. You will get a general idea of what a big pain it is to do everything the "correct" way, which could be good if that is how you want to do things.

What does over shoulder shot mean in film making?

User Avatar
The shoulder shot is the angle the camera gets of somebody's shoulder in the lower corner of the screen while we (the audience) can see the rest of the scene take place. It is usually done when two people are talking. To view one person speaking, directors or dp's (director of photography) usually choose an over the shoulder camera shot to get the audience to get a feel of actually being there in the scene with the characters. It's very effective and used often in films. Try noticing how often the next movie you watch uses that type of camera angle

What is the difference between Digital Film Making and conventional film making?

User Avatar
Digital filmmaking versus Conventioanl filmmaking has become a heated debate ever since the former became popular in the '90s. Digital filmmaking has proven however to be the more effective, durable, high quality and efficient method, and this is proven by the shift of many filmmakers from traditional filmmaking. Digital filmmaking pertains to the use of digital captures in making movies, as opposed to traditional filmmaking which uses film. Digital captures may be stored on media such as flash memory, hard disks, and tape. Many Hollywood movies are now being shot either fully or partly digital. Film distributors are often at a disadvantage when determining the number of prints for a movie they are distributing. For example, making a few prints can mean the possibility that there would be not enough screens for showing the movie which is in demand. On the other hand, printing too many film prints can be wasteful especially for movies which are not exactly blockbusters.

Where do films get made?

User Avatar
Films are 'made' wherever necessary to accommodate the story. Films are 'made' when the script is written, edited and vetted and finally funded. Films are 'made' when principal photography takes place. Films are 'made' in the editing room, the sound stages for overdubs and orchestration, and more. In other words, wherever the contribution is required, is where a 'film is made'.

What is cinema film?

User Avatar
Cinema film is the footage made up of ". . . several different layers of emulsions and filters. On top of a safety base, an anti-hilation layer prevents fogging, followed by layers of red, green and blue emulsions each with a filter between them. The film stock also contains yellow, magenta and cyan dyes that are released during processing to give a full spectrum of color.

Who collects films?

User Avatar
There are DVD's and Blu-Ray's are great, but you're going to have to re-buy your entire collection again in the not-so-distant future. You may think, "Oh, I'll hold on to a DVD/BR player for the next fifteen years." Not only is that easier said than done, but by that time, higher resolution televisions and media formats will exist, and it will be difficult for you and your eyes to "just deal with it," so to speak. That said, physical copies which are taken care of have a much greater shot at longevity. Unlike an external hard drive, a DVD won't randomly malfunction and clear itself of all the information it holds.

What are credits in a film?

User Avatar
Closing credits or end credits are a list of the cast and crew of a particular motion picture, television program, or video game. Where opening credits appear at the beginning of a work, closing credits appear close to, or at the very end of a work. A full set of credits can include the cast and crew, but also production sponsors, distribution companies, works of music licensed or written for the work, various legal disclaimers, such as copyright and more. Some long-running productions list "production babies". The closing credits are usually typed and appear in white lettering on a solid black background, featuring no sound effects or dialogue, only a musical background, sometimes the works' theme music. Credits are either static and flip from page to page, or scroll as a single list from the bottom of the screen to the top. Occasionally closing credits will divert from this standard form to either scroll in another direction, include illustrations, extra scenes, bloopers, joke credits and post-credits scenes.
