Every Cinematographer NEEDS TO KNOW THIS

Every Cinematographer NEEDS TO KNOW THIS

This is a simple way to be a better cinematographer, filmmaker and video creator. This tip is for people who are using a video camera, filming documentary style, travel videos, weddings, event videos, commercial work, and even vlogs. The technique is simple to say, “hold your shots for 10-20 seconds” but you might find it hard to put into practice. I break down an example where you can see the value of holding your shots and how that will impact the editor working with your footage. Producers, Directors and Editors will love you for holding your shots and if you are editing your footage you will love yourself! Hope you enjoy!
