I just posted a new music video I did for SONY BMG'S band CRASH PARALLEL. The concept was simple... tell a story through a series of moving oil paintings. The execution of it was not so simple. It's the first time I tried to do a video of this kind, and I learned a lot along the way.
I got a new tutorial up on my youtube channel where I talk about the basics of shot framing and angles. I also explain some of the different effects you get when using various lenses and how lens size has nothing to do with framing. All too often people ask me "What's a good lens for a medium shot" etc. I really can't answer that question since a different lens might be good in each situation.
I got great news for all the moviemakers out there... my short film Dinner Date is finaly out on DVD. You can buy it by clicking on the STORE button on my website or by going here: http://www.tlapro.com/STORE.aspx
