At the beginning of March we wrote about ‘“MY RØDE REEL” – a short film competition with crazy big prize pool. There’s still plenty of time, if you’d like to create and submit your video there. This time, however, we’re writing about a different aspect of this competition, from which even non-participants can benefit.
Not long after the “MY RØDE REEL” has been announced, RØDE YouTube channel started publishing tips and tricks videos on particular subject. In theory they’re made for the competitors to help them, in practice, they’re available to everyone.
One of these videos covers lighting, and after outlining several rules, it explains the lighting setup that was used to bring some life to otherwise dull and shallow office space:
Other tips and tricks videos include: casting and callbacks, scripting, storyboarding, art direction, costume design, boompole, audio acquisition and data wrangling. You can find them all in the official RØDE YouTube channel. Also make sure you revisit the channel in the future, as new videos are uploaded on a weekly basis.
