Feature documentary editor Kevin Klauber walks us through how to hold screenings of your projects, and why screenings are important. Whether you’re an accomplished filmmaker, or just getting started in film school, every filmmaker will make some questionable decisions in the creative process.



Everyone can misjudge how their film will actually impact an audience... In fact, making bad decisions is often part of the process! However, learning from these bad decisions and correcting course is how we become better storytellers. This video is about taking the time to learn what's working in your film (and what's not) by screening your work.

Want to screen your work, but aren't sure who to share it with? Come check out the "Critique Me!" Section in their forums: http://bit.ly/RJFS_CritiqueMe

Or ask them questions directly here: http://j.mp/PowerOfScreenings

Very special thanks to Kevin Klauber for creating this lesson with us! You can check out what work he's done here: kevinklauber.com

Monsieur Nède´s dremel was fixed and he cleaned his workshop...there were some camera parts hanging around :



One of the most difficult things a photographer will ever have to do is to create an estimate for a potential job.


There is virtually no information out there on how to do this, and that is why it is a big part of our Keatley Survival Guide workshop.

Creating a solid bid or estimate can often be the difference between thriving and going out of business. For more info, check out our site at keatleysurvivalguide.com.

Today on The Slanted Lens, they are going to show you how to create shafts of light both for still images and for film.

I love the look of light streaming into a room for video as well as photos. There are four principles that come into play when you're creating shafts of light in camera. You'll need light and atmosphere. My favorite thing to use for atmosphere is a fog or smoke machine from Rosco (http://www.rosco.com). Check it out and then share your images on our FB group! http://bit.ly/20pDWeu

Keep those cameras rollin' and keep on clickin'.

Ever been in the field and really didn't know what you needed to shoot to tell that great story? The action was happening all around you so you took a few shots. Then in the edit, it was kind of hard to actually tell your story. Here are 4 things everyone should shoot for. 



Also, I can't really take credit for these great tips. Trenton and Phil at GoPro were the first to communicate these to me. I thought they were extremely useful and wanted to share them as well. Also a big Kuddos to Seth, Kevin and Andrew - our fellow correspondents. Check out their channels below.

We spent last week in San Diego with the GoPro team. We got to pick and choose between a variety of GoPro mounts and picked out a few pretty sweet ones we wanted to share with you.

Oh man did we have fun!

Enjoy!

Adobe just released a new version of Photoshop CC2015, version 5.0, and with it come some great new tools. In today’s episode, learn how to adjust facial features using Face-Aware Liquify.

How to Open Face-Aware Liquify

First, duplicate the layer containing the subject you want to edit. Go to ‘Filter - Liquify’ to open the Liquify dialogue box, and the Face-Aware Liquify tool will analyze the face or faces in your image for editing. This option will only be available on the latest release of Photoshop, so if you haven’t upgraded your software, be sure to do so.

How to Edit a Face with Face-Aware Liquify
Next, either click and drag the Face-Aware Liquify tool in the preview box, or adjust the sliders in the dialogue box to modify a feature. You’ll have access to the eyes, nose, mouth, and even features like face width and forehead height. The Face-Aware Liquify tool will resize only the parts of the face you want to focus on, making it a handy tool for subtle retouching or creating a silly caricature.

How to Edit Multiple Faces with Face-Aware Liquify
You can also edit multiple faces in an image by selecting the face you want in the drop down box and editing the facial features the same way as above.

If you ever want to undo an edit you made, you can always go back into the Liquify tool and set the effect intensity back to zero.
