Hi, I am new here and a new film student and I just thought I would throw in another option for those of you wanting to do a short course. Light's Film School have just put a new interactive course online, using the equipment you already own or have access to. Details here: https://www.lightsfilmschool.com
I'm a student filmmaker currently working on my Master's thesis, and I'm looking for an inexpensive transcription house to transcribe my interviews. I'm also having a hard time finding a stock footage house that has what I need. I'm doing a documentary on black hair, and I'm looking for old hair commercials. Any suggestions?
Not sure if this is the place to ask, but I'm having an issue with my documentary film. I am using photos and videos taken by my interview subject to tell his story (besides the video I shot). For example, videos of a live session he did on Facebook, or a video he took with his phone, or a photo taken of his family with a cheap camera. My documentary is in HD 1080. When presenting these images, they look blurry and pixelated in my documentary film. So do the videos. I have seen several documentary films where the documentarian is using old images and videos and they look ok, even on HD. How did they do it? What do you recommend I do? The problem is the person I interviewed doesn't have access to any higher resolution versions of the stuff I need from him. What is your suggestion to this problem? Anyone out there in the film world specializes in these kind of issues?
