🔃 Spike Jonze's Apple commercial is quite famous, and I bumped into it again yesterday and found myself thinking about the thought process of something so practical effects heavy. So here are the pros and cons of approaching such a concept with practical effects.
1 - The camera is free to move without concerns of motion tracking digital effects.
2 - Talent is able to react to the spectacle of the effects in real time.
3 - Post-production time is substantially diminished.
4 - Less interference is possible from the client due to reduced time and importance of post.
5 - Practical effects are harder to imitate without hiring the original crew who made them.
6 - The practical effects are inherently more timeless and unique due to their real-world imperfections.
7- Iteration and adaptation of the concept are easier due to a tighter loop of feedback.
8 - The more basic effects (like telescoping of the table and papers) are simply easier as practical effects than VFX.
9 - You have more fun on set.
10 - You have better bragging rights.
1 - You’re forced to obey the laws of physics.
2 - Specialists with the necessary expertise are harder to find and more localized than their post-production counterparts.
3 - Practical effects necessitate a larger and better-organized crew.
4 - The risk of major setbacks is higher due to a greater concentration of time, people, energy and money on set in principle photography.
5 - You’re more locked into the final look of the effect.
6 - Total cost is probably higher.
The most compelling point within this list is pros #5 . The simple sad fact is that if you execute a fantastic digital effect chances are you will be imitated by other people trying to replicate it for cheaper. But, if it’s all practical effects you stand a higher chance of getting the call to repeat your own work from new clients. Clients tend to see VFX as a magic trick, and practical effects as true magic.

Throwback to meeting one of my creative heroes, Dinesh D’Souza! He inspired me in ways he will never know. I left behind a comfortable life, acting and making indie films (but while still in the closet politically) and realized I could make a REAL difference leveraging my talents as a filmmaker to spread TRUTH and combat the leftist narrative. God Bless Dinesh D’Souza, for his commitment to Conservative filmmaking despite oppression by the Hollywood machine, inspiring creatives like me, and fighting for America! 🇺🇸 #conservative#filmmaker#filmmaking#dineshdsouza#maga#trump#donaldtrump#liberalismisamentaldisorder
Posted @guerillafilmmakers • @edwardleefilms T I P 6 // Use a Wide Angle Lens for Real Estate Videos - When I first started real estate videography, I pretty much shot all of them at 24mm or 35mm. Because I had nothing else to compare them too, I always thought those focal lengths were wide enough (the footage looked decent too). BUT the moment I got a wide angle lens, I didn’t realize how much I was missing. Why?
A wider lens will make the space look bigger (which will impress your client). Making the space look bigger ultimately will sell the house better. It also will give the potential buyer a better chance to envision themselves in that space. If the shot is too tight/close they won’t be able to resonate with the spot.
How your real estate client and potential buyers feel about the video is very important. In my opinion, real estate videos are a great avenue for beginner videographers to seek out because it gives them a LOW PRESSURE situation to film in. No models, no crazy gear, no massive team. It’s just you and your camera practicing smooth camera shots. It also is one of the ways you can generate stable income as a videographer because if an agent likes your work and they sell lots of houses, they’ll need lots of videos 👍🏼
If you have any questions or thoughts, be sure to leave them down below and I’ll try to get back to you! Literally uploading this post at midnight. I know most people are asleep but I don’t mind because I’m doing this 30 day challenge to push myself and get uncomfortable. Even if that means posting late at night when engagement or algorithms or whatever all that stuff is not in my favor. Night y’all 💯

Quel giorno, non so proprio perché decisi di andare a correre un po’, perciò corsi fino alla fine della strada, e una volta li pensai di correre fino la fine della città, pensai di correre attraverso la contea di Greenbow, poi mi dissi, visto che sono arrivato fino a qui tanto vale correre attraverso il bellissimo stato dell' Alabama, e cosi feci. Corsi fino all' oceano e, una volta lì mi dissi, visto che sono arrivato fino a qui tanto vale girarmi e continuare a correre, quando arrivai a un altro oceano, mi dissi, visto che sono arrivato fino a qui, tanto vale girare di nuovo e continuare a correre; quando ero stanco dormivo, quando avevo fame mangiavo, quando dovevo fare ..., insomma, la facevo !
