Since there are many on here getting into the video craze....

I'm going to create a thread where people can post nothing but helpful, inspirational or whatever videos that relate to the creation of filmaking. Think of it as a resourse or bookmark of helpful shit. Some very basic and aimed at the beginners or people just wanting to make nice home videos that to those wanting to get deep in the realm of amatuer filmmaking. This thread is for you so feel free to add anything of value.

I'm not going to include different types of camera, lenses etc. Just going to focus on using the footage or techniques. Doesn't matter if its a cell phone, gopro or high dollar DSLR or camcorder. The process is all the same. Camera-related thread have their place.

I'll start this off by adding just a few links to YT videos. I'm sure you or others have or will find more to add.

This video while very basic shows the foundations needed for filmmaking. It doesn't, or shouldn't, matter if its for filming your kids birthday or filming a paid event the foundations are the same.
Fimmaking Techniques
Description of the video:
A senior-year Darwin High School video production project that demonstrates a variety of camera techniques including shots, angles, framing, movement, focus, white balance, composition, lighting and other experiments, as well as editing effects including animation, blue/green screen, keying, colour adjusting, cloning, slow-motion, image effects, transitions and sound editing.
Filmmaking Techniques

Creating the "film" look. The film look is what you see on the big screen movies. It's that smooth, grity yet sharp and alluring footage. Since none of us can afford such a camera we have to stick to digital cameras. To acheive the look of film on a digital camera requires the use of color correction. It doesn't matter what application or software you use, the basis of adjusting the tonal ranges (blacks, mids and highlights) is the same. Below are some videos that show how to acheive different looks. It's never the same for any given project so always change it up depending on the look you're going for.

Track dollies:

This video shows a UK man creating a track dolly for little money using basic parts from Lowes or the like and roller skate wheels. While this is kind of a larger one where you can ride on the platform, the idea can certainly be "scaled down" for smaller applications or cameras. The concept is the same for creating a dolly.
