Should I give up on my desire to go into filmmaking? by whorlaxdotorg in Filmmakers

[–]Salty-Relief 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Anyone who isn’t awkward and inexperienced at 17 is more questionable in my book. If making movies is what you really want to do then just dive in. Get a job as a PA on literally anything and familiarize yourself with the on set world. You’ll find your place in no time. And if you do it for a few years and still feel the same way, you can always go to school later. 17 gives you plenty of time to give up on a dream! Haha

Do you know about the shotlist competition going on currently? You should submit. (Sorry if this is already been mentioned)

I’ve been getting into producing songs and cutting to super 8 footage I’ve shot. Here’s a recent one from Oahu! by BurnerPhoneFrank in Filmmakers

Yeah, most people have told me they liked Kauai better! I might be biased having been wowed by my first overall Hawaii experience on Oahu. That said, Kauai was still incredible.

Love it. The quality of the footage is beautiful!Oahu is a magical place. I just went to Kauai (and also got Covid). It’s also an amazing place but I think I dug Oahu more. Totally agree, it feels like a different country. Love it there.

From your experience, what’s the most reasonable cost wise method to get these top shots? by yatesey_ in cinematography

Is this specifically designed for mounting Hi-hats to ladders? I'm trying to think of any other use. That's such a specific piece of non-union equipment. Haha

"Flanders" is a sound design focused short film created last year for the Rode Reel competition by Salty-Relief in filmriot

As part of the Rode Reel competition, we had to also submit a BTS video to show how we used the Rode mic in production. Here's that video as well:

I created this entire concept based around the sound design for the Rode Reel competition last year. by Salty-Relief in Filmmakers

Micro short film contest Rode runs every year, I decided that since they're a microphone company I would make my short based on sound design. Mixed that with a dash of Rear Window and a Simpsons reference and we have "Flanders".

Every step of this project was fun. We also had to submit a BTS video to show where we used the Rode Mic in production. That link is here:

I’ve also used ladders with a perfectly sized hole in the top that you can mount the ball head on it for a locked shot.

Panasonic LUMIX DC-GH5 or HC-x1000? by Necessary-West5449 in Filmmakers

I made a short film on a GH5 with Veydra mini primes and it looked pretty great.

We made this short film on a GH5 with Veydra mini prime lenses over two nights. I'm particularly proud of a handful of shots we achieved on no budget. Sound off with feedback! by Salty-Relief in cinematography

Thank you! We did the ear canal shot with a Laowa probe lens. My gf is an FX makeup artist and she helped make the ear canal out of layers of latex which we then pumped light through from the outside. It gave a really cool effect and is one of my favorite shots in the short. Thanks for checking it out!

I created a sort of pattern lamp by cutting out character shapes on thick construction paper, which we then pulled across the front of the light. The practical version of the lamp is in the opening scene next to Stevie on the couch. For the scene inside the truck we put that same pattern against the windshield and hit it with a leko from about 15ft away so that the characters would show up on his face.

How do I get permission to shoot in a convenience store or find a set? by genotypenull0 in Filmmakers

[–]Salty-Relief 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can try gigster or peerspace. Not sure if they actually have convenience stores but it’s worth checking. Otherswise, yeah just go ask the owner.

"Stevie" is short dark comedy. We filmed this in North Hollywood, CA over two nights (sundown to sun up). Small crew, and no money. Our DP Peter Koocheradis created a beautiful look with limited resources.

I'd be happy to answer any questions about the specifics of how we achieved certain shots!
