In this tutorial i will show you how to make your own debri element in Autodesk 3Ds Max. This tutorial is pretty straight forward and i dont expect you to be a pro in such stuff. Pretty easy setup with lots of possibilites. So i hope it helps.cheers!
In this tutorial I show you my take on The Summer Blockbuster look - using the powerful 2 node subtractive colour setup.
Make sure you read the accompanying blog post as it goes into more detail than what's possible in the video - juanmelara.com.au/the-summer-blockbuster-colour-grading-tutorial/
I suggest trying out the techniques on the tutorial footage first, as it's easier to know when you're heading in the right direction. Download all the necessary footage/files from the link above.
Having a stadium to shoot at helps too.
We were supposed to film something at this stadium but had a scheduling conflict with the team, so I made this with some b-roll I shot.
Filmed on the Sony A7s in slog2. Sharpness all the way down. Filming in slog2 is extremely important to maximize dynamic range and gives it that truly cinematic feel.
Graded in Premiere and used the M31 LUT. Giving you the exact details will not help you by the way because footage will always be different for everyone. Just experiment and use Luma curves for contrast and color balance *before* the Lumetri LUT effect.
One thing that makes footage look very cinematic is wide shots with ultra deep depth of field, color graded well. Shooting everything zoomed in with shallow depth of field doesn't always mean it will look cinematic.
Even if I was joking, the items I list saying "add", actually are elements that do help. Layering all these elements and more is what creates a truly cinematic feel. In fact, the editing may be the most important part. So I'd suggest paying close attention to your favorite movies and look at how they cut footage in accordance to sound/music and overall timing.
One thing I'd like to note is solely having a 4k camera will never automatically make your footage more cinematic. If you can view something in 1080p but don't care if it's in 360p, then you know it's good.
In short, if you want your stuff to look like a movie, you need a solid theme. All other decisions and ideas will then stem from that.
And if you were wondering, I did all the voices in this.
This is a lighting tutorial by Dugly Habits for the 30th Anniversary of Dedolight International Competition 2015.
Here we show you how you can create 3 different atmospheres in one single room by using an SPS5 Dedolight Kit, some other lights and a couple of simple but pretty cool tricks!
We tried to make it as entertaining as possible! Each chapter consists of a one-shot scene and tells a little story about Peter and Paula.. a typical German couple...
Have fun watching the show!
