FILM EVOLUTION: 7 PART SERIES
Some would say that Film History is “BOR-ring!” Maybe. But, you know what else history is? NOT boring! In this 7-Part Series, Wired4Film takes us on a Filmmaker’s Journey. From the Lumiere Brothers to Lightsabers. And remarkably, film history is repeated in your own Film Evolution: From your first Squirrel Video to becoming an After Effects Black Belt Level-138 Wizard.
PHASE 1: 1895 CINEMA IS BORN - the first phase of every filmmaker wherein we shoot everyday life, devoid of narrative and capture a ton of moments on film, a small percentage of which is genuinely usable, entertaining footage.
PHASE 2: 1902 FILM AS THEATER - Capturing limited stage-like drama (wedding videos, church plays, a friend’s joke, etc) – these are films with a linear plot as the action happens.
PHASE 3: 1903 EDITING IS BORN - Shooting with Post-production in mind, telling a narrative with shot selections, and shooting/assembling your film in a non-linear fashion.
PHASE 4: 1908 INCREASING YOUR FILM LANGUAGE – The Ultimate Film School. Making short films every week. Experimenting with the visual storytelling process and various genres.
PHASE 5: 1927 WHAT’S THAT SOUND – Audio counts. From field audio to music and sound design. Rounding out your screen world with sounds.
PHASE 6: COMING SOON
PHASE 7: COMING SOON
No matter what level you’re on, there’s always room to grow.
Let’s make a movie!
