This is the 35th instalment of this feature here on Filmmaking Lifestyle, where we chart the best-of-the-best from around the filmmaking and video production world. This article covers the best posts from August 2018.
Every month, I post a round-up article featuring the best things I’ve found around the web on filmmaking and video production. If you missed one, we have a complete archive here.
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.
The Best Posts Of August 2018
Howdy. How goes it?
A lot has happened in my personal life this month. I got married and we put the wedding together in less than 3 months! Must be something of a record!
After the wedding, my wife and I (!) went on a Meditarrean cruise. In all, we saw about 12 countries and put in a lot of miles of walking and sightseeing.
I have to admit that I was a little unsure about cruises to begin with. Like lots of people, I viewed cruises as a bunch of old people on a ship sunbathing. How far from the truth could I be!
The cruise was a mix of ages and we met some great people. Waking up in a new location every morning (after sailing overnight) was fantastic! We both agreed that this trip was the best we’ve been on.
It ticked so many boxes for us – the luxury and the service of the cruise ship (literally a sailing 5 star hotel), combined with the walking and sightseeing and being able to see so many countries, cities, towns and locations in such a short period of time.
I’d recommend a cruise to anyone, young or old. There’s truly something for everyone. This 2 week cruise was a helluva memorable trip for so many reasons and we have memories that we’ll have for a lifetime!
I took a lot of photos and even shot some video footage (although I tried not to work too much!) Hope to share some of those with you in the near future.
