Thank you so much for making filmmaking sound relatively easy and how we as learning filmmakers can learn to be better professionals.

Just because you CAN composite Sam into this video a dozen times doesn't mean you SHOULD. You have a website. We get it. I'm trying to pay attention to the content.

I love how this class is all about Sam, a professional filmmaker with years of experience, teaching camera techniques and showing how to create a good image, yet no one in the crew seems to be capable of recording proper f*cking sound

Here's what you really need to know that Niko didn't tell you: 1. Read the F**KING manual. 2. Learn what all the settings do. 3. Shoot test footage testing out any settings you don't 100% understand, and use a slate/marker board noting what is different in each take. Do the same repeatable action (like someone sitting and waving) What Niko told you about is cinematography, not how to work the camera. It would have been more helpful for this video to be "how to shoot effective test footage to test out your camera and lenses." I can't tell you the amount of times I've received practically ruined footage because some schmuck thought he could expose by eye when looking at the log image on the 2-inch camera viewfinder. LEARN YOUR CAMERA people. Doesn't matter how well you can light a shot, and if you chose the best cooke lenses if you capture dogshit because you didn't know how to work the camera settings.

That zone system is very specific to creating an SDR image. Nowadays, a lot of stuff is moving to HDR color grading, and that's a whole other beast. Ideally shadows and mid tones should look fairly similar to what they would look like in SDR, but highlights should look realistically bright, which means many highlights will look far brighter than SDR allows. Things like the sun and fire and bright reflections should be VERY bright on a good HDR display (assuming doing that fits well with the visual language of the shot). Your point about not clipping highlights becomes SO much more important here. If you clip them, even those bright studio lights behind you, you won't be able to make use of the expanded dynamic range to display them accurately in HDR. There's also a wider color gamut that allows for certain highly saturated colors that couldn't even be captured by SDR technology. When grading for HDR, ideally, HDR should be done before SDR, because doing it the other way will likely result in limiting what you can do with the HDR grade afterwards and resulting in an inferior HDR image. A lot of movie studios still aren't doing this right, and the result is an HDR image that does not take advantage of the wider dynamic range of color, even when it would be completely appropriate to the cinematography to do so.

This is a beautiful video but I feel to truly know how the capture emotions through filmmaking, there's just one tip: watch more films! Study how great masterworks like Tarkovsky, Kurosawa, Kubrick combined light, visual beauty, movement into one. Study as many films as possible and find your style.

Isn't there like a millions memorable shots where the shots are longer than the sentence to describe the shot? I think the rule that the description should be as long as the shot falls pretty flat. Even for a thumb rule it's VERY general.

Artificial Sharpening is also known as anti-aliasing and debayering in the camera software. Not all CMOS' are bayered, just the higher-contrast versions since layered CMOS' require more light for more resolution/detail (Sony F35 Rules!!!, but only if you incinerate your actors in light).

I have a Samsung Galaxy S20 and if the lighting is done properly and the camera settings are set to manual and tweaked to be as "true" as possible (leaving any color grading to be done after the fact), adjusting exposure to eliminate clipping, and providing ENOUGH light that I don't have to raise the ISO above the rock bottom, I'm able to get footage that damn near looks like it could be in a real movie. It really is mostly about just understanding how a camera works and to have enough lights on hand to create whatever environment you want without creating any dark or light clipping. That gets you 80% of the way there. After that, all you have to think about is focus, movement, etc.

«Get some Photons up in your scene» Indeed! Nice studio set up but Nico is too dark. Need to have more light in his face. The side-lit style is not great. It’s OK for the front camera, but the side cameras don’t have a good enough dynamic range and it’s distracting not to be able to see his eyes clearly. Just a little constructive criticism.

It's uncanny how absurdly well worded that video is! Analogies and examples are well thought through. I actually understood it all (retention is a different matter). Niko - BTW - sometimes you look almost like Colin Firth (except hair - red and facial...) xD

I remember the "if the time it takes to say the sentence is faster than the actual shot, the shot is timed incorrectly" from the very first corridor crew video I watched back when it was still called Sam and Niko back in 2013 probably. I just love how this team of people have grown

Hey, you guys should definitely check out the great CGI in the Monsterverse because there are so many fantastic effects that I'm sure you guys would love to talk about. It would be a great video idea for you. Also Godzilla vs Kong just released and with that movie being as big as it is, it would get you guys a lot of views and would give godzilla vs kong a lot more recognition.
