This Might Be the Most Entertaining, Informative, & Inspiring BTS Video Ever Made

Sometimes they're just that, a brief glimpse behind the scenes of your favorite films. Other times, they're a harrowing account of productions that, by all standards, should never have succeeded, much like the fantastic Fitzcarraldo documentary Burden of Dreams, or the always-popular Hearts of Darkness. And then there are BTS pieces that are meant to inform, videos that provide insight into the filmmaking process. Last but not least, there are BTS pieces that are just downright entertaining to watch. And once every blue moon, a BTS video comes along that serves all of these purposes. This BTS comes from a recent music video shoot in which the Graetzmedia team attempted to mimic the famous one-shot car scene from Children of Men, but with a style reminiscent of the Smashing Pumpkins videos of the 90s. Here's the finished music video for the Violent Soho song Saramona Said. What are some of your favorite BTS videos? [via Cinescopophilia] Got 90 Seconds? These Simple Tips Will Make Your Focus Pulling Way More Efficient.

So you’ve got yourself a shiny new follow focus, and you’re stoked to take your focus pulling to the next level.

Got 90 Seconds? These Simple Tips Will Make Your Focus Pulling Way More Efficient

The only problem: pulling focus is not nearly as easy as it seems. If you’ve ever had to pull focus for a scene that has complicated blocking, where characters are moving back and forth in relation to the lens, you know that the marks on the follow focus ring can get really messy, really fast. But worry not, because Clinton Harn has some tips and tricks that will get you well on your way to becoming a follow focus master. Beyond the slick organizational system, Harn also shows us a great little tip for building the muscle memory necessary to differentiate between most lenses and the lenses made by Nikon, which focus in the opposite direction.

For Nikon lenses, if you keep your hand on top of the follow focus, you can move the focus closer to infinity by rolling your hand over the follow focus towards your subject.

The Dolly Zoom Timelapse Will Blow Your Mind! Here's How to Pull off This Crazy Technique

Some of them are good, some are not, and some of them are truly mind-blowing. As we know, modern motorized camera movement equipment has really paved the way for all sorts of inventive movement to be included in the timelapse format. In general, if a camera move has been done in a live-action environment, someone has probably done it in a timelapse. Although I could very well be wrong, until today I had never seen someone perform a dolly zoom during a timelapse. Eric Stemen recently put together a video not only showing how the technique looks (mind-blowing), but also how he pulled it off using traditional hyperlapse techniques and a little ingenuity. Honestly this technique is an incredibly simple one to pull off, especially considering how unique and eye-catching the dolly zoom timelapse effect is.
