Don't be Afraid to use Reference Material | Behind The Scenes

Getting inspiration from other works of art, whether that's films, TV shows, or paintings, will help you focus the way you want your film to look, sound, and feel.

Even the biggest and most successful filmmakers use google images for reference material: so just remember - it's not cheating!

We've Been Challenged to Make a Film! | Behind The Scenes

We sat down with Nate of Nate's Film Tutorials and discussed the film challenges we set each other. Nate challenged us to make a film with only a single word of dialogue - we challenged him to shoot a dialogue between 2 people with the initial line being "What do you mean, you don't have the money?".

We also answered a question by one of our subscribers involving playing music on set, and have begun to work on some Film Look merchandise!
