8mm film is AWESOME, so remember to use it if possible!

After reading this article on the bbc.com on shooting celluloid film, and in particular 8mm film, I went fishing. Look at the great links I caught:

An awesome organization based in Brooklyn, teaching celluloid filmmaking:
www.mononoawarefilm.com

And here’s a list of 8mm film resources in New York City:
www.brooklynvitagraph.com

That got me thinking about what it costs to shoot 8mm film in New York City. I think these guys may have the best pricing around. They also sell cameras and film. I’ll have to stop by their showroom:
www.duallcamera.com

And this is a place in LA that’s all about 8mm film/cameras/education:
www.pro8mm.com

Happy shooting!

Writing a Music Video Treatment

I worked hard this week to submit a treatment I’m pitching to a band; It’s a music video for one of their songs. And I learned some cool stuff in the process, using the link below as reference.

Putting it together was fun, since I used photos to lay out the mood of the entire video. Basically, the photos are like a storyboard, which is helpful since I wouldn’t be able to draw that much detail! After I found the photos, I wrote the story out. I wrote the story around the photos, which were paired with each standza of the lyrics. It was a fun process, and I’m definitely going to use the technique again for the next music video treatment I submit!
