I’d like to introduce you to a new feature here on Filmmaking Lifestyle. Each month, I’m going to post a round-up post of 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’ll be posting one of these at the end of each month, along with all the regular posts you get on Filmmaking Lifestyle as usual.
The Best Posts Of October 2015
This month has been pretty eventful in the world of filmmaking and video production!
As this is the first of these monthly wrap-ups, I’ve been a bit liberal with the date ranges and included some things have were posted a little before October 2015.
Filmmaking & Directing
Pretty cool to see a David Fincher talking about his secrets on directing and visual storytelling.
After checking that out, it’s well worth hearing another top filmmaker discuss storytelling. Batman director Christopher Nolan’s 18-Minute Analysis of Story & Construction Of Memento:
The always interesting No Film School came through with a couple of very useful articles this month. You can learn 5 Secrets to Pulling Off Hollywood-Level Chroma Key (Besides Good Lighting), and then discover 8 great sources of public domain footage for your films and videos.
And whilst we’re on the subject of master filmmakers talking about their work, here’s famed director of photographer Roger Deakins on how to frame a master shot like a master cinematographer.
Did you know there was a recent documentary shot on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera? The film is called Junun and it was shot by There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson.
Always cool to see how things were. This funny GIF went viral recently and shows how the well-known Old Spice commercial was filmed.
Speaking about how to go viral, on Filmmaking Lifestyle we featured an article in October all about the importance of social media for your video production business.

Always good to hear from Casey Neistat. This month, he posted this solid video tutorial entitled, Casey Neistat’s Guide to Filmmaking:

Thank you for posting these other resources. That really adds to the credibility that you have about film making, at least to me. That viral GIF is pretty good and puts my mind in another perspective on things.
