invisable Me - The Filming


actor Luke Blackmore posing with a 1960's film camera yes I used camer's like this!!

When I was a kid, there was no collaboration; it's you with a camera bossing your friends around. But as an adult, filmmaking is all about appreciating the talents of the people you surround yourself with and knowing you could never have made any of these films by yourself.                                                                                                   Steven Spielberg


In the aeons of time the making of the home movie has gone through roof and so everyone is at it.

The average i phone user has more video power than many pro cameras in the past and also subject to a bit of a revival film is the province of the professionals.

Also more films are being made - more actors are employed - it's all good news.

One major change from making "a film" on a budget is the sheer scope of equipment and shooting options.

Sound can be recorded by the camera "live" or added later in the editing process.

Cromakey makes location and advanced shooting so very easy.

Lighting can be simple and cool and well light to carry. Batteries actually last and your "film" can last hours not minutes.

There is currently an upsurge in the revial of super 8 mm film - which replaced 8mm film in the sixties.

Luke is holding a Crown 8mm cine camera to the right there ,

I began with Super 8 silent, then sound then 16mm professional - each camera got bigger and heavier - but the basic shoot and editing techniques were the same. Slow and intricate.

Now with digital media there really are few limits and the equipment is light weight.


How the home movie began:- Pathescope 1918
