#Film 101 - Storyboarding: This last shoot we did for @honeybeardband reminded me that preparation is so key and you should arm yourself with any tools that will help you through #production to #postproduction. This was the first time since graduating from film school I put together a #storyboard but it allowed us to 1. Show our clients our vision before we shoot 2. Allowed us to use it as a major #🔑 reference for when we shot and edited. You don’t need amazing drawing skills, you just need to find a way to get what you see in your head onto paper. Try it on your next project. #filmmaker #tbt

Sometimes all you got is YOU to push through. Don’t EVER stop.
(Also check out @beyonce new album #lemonade real quick. The album for every woman ever scorned. And the visual album, Blew. Me. Away. To be on a #production like that 🙏) #film
This is the latest project SFP has worked on to date. And a big one too Once again working with @honeybeardband, we conceptualized the idea and took it straight from storyboard to production, to the editing room. The idea of it was a little daunting as this was the first endeavour inti a professional music video shoot and on top of that there’s the general note that outdoor shoots are the most difficult and unpredictable. But we did it. With a crew of 3 people (talent included), we shot over a weekend and then the editing began. That was a process in itself with constant creative roadblocks only remedied with some meditation and great feedback. I hope I did the song and the band justice but I just wanted to put this out with one final message: you may doubt yourself and your abilities but until you try you won’t be able to fail nor succeed. Don’t stay in limbo - believe in yourself and get it done. #tgif #newmusic #filmmaker #musicvideo

Sometimes you bite a little too much off then you can chew. Especially with smaller production collectives, taking on multiple projects at a time might be the only way to remain busy, relevant and successful.
Take your time with each one, set up time lines and deadlines for yourself for every step of the way. Try to stay calm and remember that while a projects delivery is important, so is ensuring you are still producing high quality work. Especially when you’re feeling rushed, it’s super important to check and double check your work before it goes out the the client. Your name is on that thing and represents you and your brand. #filmphotography #filmmaker #productioncompany #videoproduction #🎥
I’ve been seeing this color scheme EVERYWHERE recently:
I’m not complaining. I love the colors. Just an observation. Makes me feel like 80s Miami Vice.
