Watch: Five Tips for Shooting Outdoors
This Film Riot video (via No Film School) quickly runs down five basic tools you’ll need to have in order to shoot outside — wind socks or other protection for your mic, ND filters and so on — as well as suggesting cost-effective alternatives for especially cash-strapped productions. No money for a bounce board? No problem: pull a pillowcase over a cardboard box and you’re ready to go. While intended primarily for beginners, this video’s pointers can serve as a quick refresher crash course to bring everyone on your crew up to speed.
