Here are some of the best items for shooting the big day. These camera gear options are not only compact, they’re ready to be used in the fast-paced wedding environment.

Creating a Storyboard Edit in Premiere Pro CC 2015 A storyboard edit is a method of quickly assembling a sequence by selecting the in and out points within a series of clips in a bin, arranging the clips into the right order, and then creating a sequence from those clips based on their in and out points. A storyboard edit is a great way to snappily produce a fast first assembly of a scene. The quick tip we’ll get on to is how to change the default poster frame of a given clip, which is helpful if you have a clip that contains an action or movement that changes the look of the shot completely, and you’re assembling a complex sequence. It’s also just a handy thing to be able to do! How To Create A Storyboard Edit in Premiere Pro In order to create a storyboard edit, get the clips that you need for the scene into their own bin or folder. If you’re used to Final Cut Pro 7, you’ll remember that you used to be able to drag icons around anywhere in a window and they just ‘floated freely’ in the window.

Keeping Your Video Editing Projects Organized - The Beat: A Blog by PremiumBeat If you’re going to call yourself a professional, you should work like a professional. An insanely disorganized project is a nightmare, and ultimately reflects poorly upon you as en editor. We bring in freelancers pretty regularly at my office and if I’m given the choice to bring back a great editor who leaves a disaster of files and other mess in their wake or a slightly less great editor who keeps things in order and under control you can bet I’ll choose the organized one every time. He or she makes it easier for me to quickly pick up the project for later revisions if necessary. In this post, I want to share a structure for how I like to organize my video editing projects. This is an empty skeleton that I use as a basis for all projects, then fill-in as needed: Here’s how I use these bins, including the thinking behind them: The Audio Bin Generally, nothing goes in the top-level Audio folder. The Edits Bin The Footage Bin All project footage goes into here. The GFX Bin The VFX Bin

8 Great 'Proof of Concept' Films That Got Picked Up by Hollywood While some people might call these extended trailers, that’s not exactly what a proof of concept is. In reality a proof of concept is more like a short film developed on a very limited budget that’s created to show studios what that production team can accomplish. Sometimes these proof of concept films go on to become big budget films such as Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, 300, Sin City and District 9. In just the last few months, we’ve seen a lot of proof of concept films get studio backing. To say this film was ambitious is an understatement. Mischa Rozema is currently working with WB now to secure writers and begin the pre-production process on the feature-length film. Another ambitious project is The Leviathan from Ruairi Robinson, who is known for his Academy Award nominated animated short film Fifty Percent Grey, as well as directing the 2013 sci-fi horror The Last Days on Mars. Realm is currently in pre-production with Relativity Media with Scott Speer attached to direct.
