LETS BE REAL
Lets be real. Nobody is going to read this. My marketing, my social media, and my communication is all lacking. My writing is nowhere near the level for a quality blog. Though it has improved with a year of promo writing for CW. But those promo's are only 20 seconds long.
Anyway, nobody is going to read this. The only thing I do foresee is that if my work ever gains massive attention and I mean really freaking big attention. (How else is one to gain an audience with the supreme internet) Then you might stumble upon this blog. You might be interested in what a mega successful filmmaking STAR had to say when he was small and unknown. When he was striving to just make art. Because that's what he loves to do.
So my fellow inspiring artist. Lets begin.
Photography =/= Video
Do skills in each field help the other?
Well, what do you think about this picture?
Artistic? Shitty? Brilliant? Just another photo? Well, all of those words don't matter, at least to me. Because this is my style. This is my art. How did I take this picture? On a 550D (my first camera when I began video production) The lens? A Canon 50mm f1.4. It's not just a normal 50mm though. Oh no. It's a 50mm attached to a LA7200 Anamorphic Adapter with a .5 Diopter velcroed to the front.
Why all this random shit for a photo? Well these are the tools I use for my videography. Why not bleed them into my photos? I don't think of myself as a photographer, and it's not where my passion is. But is this a good photo? Because the crop of the photo, the color of the photo, the framing of the photo, the technique to take the photo, the gear for the photo, all comes from my passion in video production.
? Photo =/= Video ?
It's interesting stuff!
