New Theories of the Short Film: A Conversation with Dr. Richard Raskin What makes a short film a short film? If you asked us a month ago, we might have told you that a short film’s defining characteristic is, well, its shortness. But not anymore.

Wooonderful Stop-Motion: puppet making Just as every puppet is conceived for a certain type of action, a mould is very much made regarding what you're going to use it for: are you going to cast silicon, or press-mold some clay in it...?As a rule: if you want the cast to be soft, use a hard mould (= plaster…), and if the cast is hard, use a soft mould.This being said, the main thing with mould is patience: you might have to redo them quite a few time before you reach perfection (or at least something decent) Once you have your platicine sculpture ready, dip the part you don’t want to cast right now (we’re doing a several part mould here) in clay (=loam: the one used to make pots)
How to Use a DSLR to Shoot High Quality Videos If you are like many professional photographers, you may be finding that more and more clients are asking if you can also do video for them when you’re on-site doing a photo shoot. Video can be a “strange new world” and you may be passing up some good opportunities.

Without a doubt, shooting video with a DSLR can be more complicated than shooting stills, but you can achieve beautiful, creative results by following a few, simple guidelines. And, while you may add more video-related gear over time, you can make some initial, fairly modest investments and get into video production without having to break the bank.

A photographer's intro to the world of video: Digital Photography Review It took me a long time to recognize the appeal of video shooting. Even in a job where I have to use a camera’s video features, it was only fairly recently that I moved beyond just taking short clips (essentially stills with a little bit of movement in them) and started to think in terms of using video and editing to tell stories. Given that most modern cameras offer at least rudimentary video tools, I wanted to share my experiences and perhaps encourage others to start thinking about shooting at 24 or more frames per second.
