The Art of Wedding Filmmaking


Lesson Info


Once you've yes so once you're you know you created like you've adjusted you're you're color and your your exposure and you've got your your levels right then the next step is exporting it depending on how you wanted to live it euro your film so we'll get in more detail in terms of like the actual packaging in the next segment which is part of the topics um that will go through the next segment but one of the one of the some of the ways you can export you can export of e mia which is really powerful because you want to get an online reach and and then obviously you know you need to think about your your formats and things like that like you critics and the codex depend on the medium that you're trying to obviously deliver to you your client your couple and also how you wantto use your film too um attract more business right? So generally online stuff ve me oh, you know you can export you know seven twenty talked already by seven twenty and it's it's an impact and pick for so I'll just ...

go through it's very very easy with final cut ten so what you do let's say this is the finished film you've got some cutaways here it's your you got your finnish film you go in and out there's a tab here and you just go bang jr just like that and you type in your username um you could also do it through compressor I would recommend if you're going for this system that we have final cut ten I would invest it's just it's another act like you just got through you're up your app kind of purchasing tool you can get compressor and that is a tool to export your timeline to different formats depending on whether itself off dvd or if it's for iphone and really powerful. So what you can do is you go at destination and then you got your fingertips you can go to facebook, youtube dvd blue, right? I find is you know, I think that the train will be more towards digital and obviously discuss our packaging and what we're basically looking to do in the now and beyond but you gotta eat that compressor right and this comes up automatically everything is in sync, everything is just together it'll it's all married it's a ll it all makes sense and you can just basically quicken when you need. If it's a dvd that you're providing a double click and that will burn without will create your your file teo bring into your dvd authoring program like your dvd studio pro or uncle and they're basically we have we don't have I haven't allocated that as part of the course, but we use on core as part of our dvd making and uncle's really I find this really user friendly and you can you know you can you can basically you could transparent you're or you can export your files too you know, for I'm for your iphone as well and you broke thinking how how is that your ipad and you're thinking well what's the point of that I'll show you and that comes out in the packaging so what are my duties? I'll just go and sure a couple of examples to more examples of like some color correction because it really kind of did one with the you know, we did a couple before before the break and we just did this one which was pretty straightforward the lighting was really good and it was pretty spot on exposure but for example, if you if you shoot like in outdoor if you shoot outdoors and it's fairly green, have you noticed that you shot just obviously very green because it is a little green around so there's these air another is another example where you know you want to kind of balance oh, look what happens that's so good good thing about final cut ten right is that I haven't lost anything you actually can't save manually save while you're cutting with fun, but what happens is it automatically saves by itself every few seconds it's everything I've done has not been lost and that that's pretty rare that it happens that's not a problem while that's loading do we have any any questions any thoughts you wanna share quickly? Um, there are some there's software that you've been mentioning that's really, really been beneficial to your work for like plural eyes on on court is there any other software that you have added to your work flow over the years that you've found to be really remarkable? Um, no, not at this stage yeah trying think there's any that I've heard about lately, but no, not at this stage. Most of that what we do is on is in final cut and because we're invested quite a bit in audio in terms of, like getting the backups and getting the right levels c I have a system where I find that I don't need to do too much in post because not to sound arrogant, but you know, I'm pretty I'm pretty spot on when it comes to the audio because I just spend the time I invest in the time to get the right equipment understanding how to use that equipment, right? Uh, having back up and and just learning from I've made mistakes in my time, right? There's nothing wrong with making mistakes, right? Obviously, you know, you want to avoid having any disasters or nightmares, right? Not meant like really disastrous moments where you don't have any audio but because I've invested in that pack of invested in that and make sure that I have the backups and I'm doing things correctly then I find that I don't have to do much in post most of what I what I do we doing put what I doing post and my editor is a little bit of color correction because sometimes you were trying to get that moment and the lighting is you need quite didn't quite nail it because I'm just like bang I just need to get it it's like I'm trying trying to dial tryingto just get it just get the moment and because I've got backups with audio and I've really over over the years I've I've developed a strong understanding in terms of microphones and how they work and having those back up stan I haven't had the need to spend a little like time adjusting the audio the only thing with audio I can show you that if you have a little hiss you can lower your your highs I can quickly show you how to do that very straightforward but I generally don't have that issue and if it's an interview and you have a conditioners going then I just turn them off he say like if you're interviewing the bride and you for example they're not gonna have an issue with you saying hey, you got your air con on your mind if you just turn that off and then you save so much time in post like trying to just your frequency and we can be done it's not an issue but you try and minimise spinning unnecessary time in post that's the idea so this is more of a general question, but you've mentioned a couple times about mistakes you've made and how there you know, you learn from them obviously and everybody working in videography and photography has made giant mistakes and learn from them, so I was just wondering, you could share like an anecdote about the time that you maybe when you were just starting up or even recently that you made a big mistake that you really learn from you could share that knowledge with us so we could avoid it yeah definitely will one that I mentioned before which are elaborate, I'll think of another one while I share this one is I forgot press record for the ceremony this was gone back when way didn't have the know health this is when I was waiting for the company and we were starting teo used their size is like back in two thousand nine when the deer's last came out and we're like, well, excited yeah full frame sensor and you know, but how we record audio so what we did is we recorded the audio through it like a another camera that had the audio inputs right and tape so you know remotely like that sets it like your soni said sevens and you said ones and when that tape based way would use them too record audio when the five the first came out I got to press record in the camera which was sitting on the side capturing that good audio so but we had other mike's going it was just a case of, like spending a lot of time in post adjusting you know, the frequencies and the level so it was clean and acceptable so then it would be good for the client but after doing that I'm gonna show you I've never done that again right any if I have then I've got enough backups we have different things going on got wide system like I go why microphones going today I've got I've got a couple zooms I've got the camera mike, which don't really rely on that but it's like a extra extra backup just in case all right and those those times you won't forget it like when you make a little a little when you make those mistakes I'm going to show you that they're ingrained in you and look that's years ago and I still remember that you know but you know what human but it's just about, you know, minimizing those as possibilities and learning from them and moving forward and being being better than what you do your process

This is fantastic! Boatloads of useful information, lightheartedly told, as if by a friend. And this is in regards to the comment earlier that Alfio is not a good teacher. I find his manner of speaking very easy to get into. It's not rigid and you can tell he's speaking from experience and not quoting text-books. I'd much rather have this sort of teacher than any other. Brilliant stuff, I have to repeat myself.
