Welcome to the 2nd addition of this feature here on Filmmaking Lifestyle, where we chart the best-of-the-best from around the filmmaking and video production world. The article covers the best posts from November 2015.
Every month, I post a round-up article featuring the best things I’ve found around the web on filmmaking and video production.
We’re talking articles, videos, infographics, all sorts. Anything that stands out to me and that I think is worth keeping in an archive, I’m going to include in these reports.
I post these articles at the end of each month, along with all the regular posts you get on Filmmaking Lifestyle as usual.

Speaking of Sony, a recent announcement by the company in November indicates that they’ll no longer be making betamax tapes. Read more about Sony’s Betamax, long thought dead, officially gets last nail in its coffin.
