Don’t worry we are not quitting Cinecom, we would be lost without you guys. But we really did produce our last video project, our last local project. We decided to fully focus on YouTube and creating videos with higher quality. But we also want to make more courses, so we can really teach you guys from beginner to advanced film maker! And that’s why we stopped working locally.
In this last project we made an after movie for the reveal party of the new BMW X2. It was a normal project, one we did many times before. This time Jordy went with Lorenzo to teach him all the know-how, will I stayed home guarding the fort. And if I’m honest, these local projects really helped me develop my film making skills. I would definitely recommend everyone to create after movies from parties or events. They will give you new insights on how to film.
The thing that I learned that I find most valuable is speed. With this I mean speed of filming and working. When you are doing an after movie, you need to be ready for anything. People who are partying will not do the same thing over because you weren’t in focus. So be prepared and on the lookout for your perfect shot. This I also use in our YouTube videos when I’m filming Jordy. It’s saves time and when Jordy does something silly, most of the time I have it on camera.
Another tip I can give you is don’t be afraid to ask something. When shooting an after movie, ask people to do a toast or let them look in the camera and smile. If you ask the people to stage something you can create you own moments. Which can be more beautiful and it will also give your videos that something extra. So don’t be afraid to ask. Not only when doing after movies, but also in life! Don’t be afraid and don’t hold back!
