This $80 Projector Trick Makes Incredible Films | Live Projection 101

How can an $80 projector upgrade your Poor Man’s Process? How can filmmakers learn to use the same projection techniques that were used in First Man (2018), Gravity (2013) and Oblivion (2013)? Well to find out we spoke to Charles Haine, a professor of cinematography at the Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema and a writer at NoFilmSchool. Every filmmaker has shot a scene in a car at one point in their career. Whether it’s on a process trailer in a big budget production or doing the very unsafe and unwise method of shooting an actually moving vehicle, car scenes are commonplace in modern filmmaking.

Wow, this is my first ever attempt at making a video about “news” — not something I plan to do often AT ALL, but I thought this was actually kind of an interesting story where there’s more to it than meets the eye!

I had the day off, and somehow I managed to turn a video around in 24 hours. Definitely a personal record, but probably only applicable to news format type videos unfortunately…research makes everything else take a heck of a lot longer!
Anyways, there’s more stuff in the works but I hope you enjoy this!
