A Director in the Field

There are a lot of responsibilities that comes with the title “Director”. Ryan Connolly in the above video definitely exhibits some key traits that I believe should be in a good director. He just seems like a happy go lucky guy who has fun doing what he does and make it fun for everyone else around him. So he has got the fun and loving factor going for him. There is also the fact that he knows all the ins a outs of a good production.  Read the rest of this entry



1. Could this blog be helpful for feature film makers?

I would have to say no. This blog is basically about amateur filmmaking because that is where I am at currently in my life. I want to share some of my knowledge along with experiences. I hope that I can also learn some new filmmaking tricks from others in the process.

2. Should photographers check out this blog?

It certainly couldn’t hurt! I like to think there is a fine line between photography and videography. Each use many of the same elements to capture images whether they be still or in motion.

3. What is your experience in the field of videography thus far?

Well I am currently a college student looking to broaden my talents. I have done some interning a few years back for a company called New York Sound and Motion where I was basically just a grip but it was a great experience.

4. Where does most of your expertise lye?

Currently I am most comfortable with shooting and editing. And when I say shooting I mean camera work and how the camera is able to move through space. I still am getting used to how to light scenes properly and how to capture great audio for projects.

5. Have you made any videos or short films of your own?

Yes indeed I have. I’m just waiting for the right time to display them. I like to wait until I know I have a video that I think is great and I know that everyone will enjoy. I understand that wont always be the case but I figure that if it is something I’m not happy with then other people would feel the same if I uploaded that video.

6. What is your favorite kind of video to make?

I really enjoy putting shots to music so pretty much music videos. I think its fun to work with people who have such a great passion for music especially because it is one of my passions as well. I also like working on commercial type videos for practically the same reason. People put their heart into business so I like to work in an environment where people enjoy and believe in what they are doing.

7. Any questions left unanswered?

Feel free to contact me via email at I’d love to hear from all you guys.

Shorter Can Sometime Be Better

Ever consider whether or not you want to make your film feature length? I’m sure every one has thought about it. That’s the dream right? To make a feature length film is definitely on my bucket list, even if it’s just a mediocre thing I end up doing in my free time. But I only imagine the amount of work that goes into making a film like that. So much writing, shooting, editing and so on. Along with all the help you would need to create something of that caliber. I will make a feature length film at some point in my life but while I wait for that moment to arise I figure I have the ability to make a just as appealing short film. Read the rest of this entry
