It seems there’s been an explosion of new sources of filmmaking help sites in recent years.
To help you filter through the clutter, we’ve put together a list of 8 of our favourite sites for all kinds of film and video info. Here is the list below.
No Film School (founded by Ryan Koo) is arguably the most comprehensive news resources out there for filmmakers and video producers. Their site is loaded with fresh articles daily, covering everything from industry news, film gear and hollywood production techniques. They also do an amazing job covering the annual NAB Show in Vegas.
2. Philip Bloom
Philip Bloom is an insanely talented cinematographer who has a genuine interest in sharing his knowledge with the world. A humble guy with a dry (but hilarious) sense of humour, Philip somehow juggles a seemingly busy shooting schedule with writing (filming) in-depth reviews about the latest filmmaking tech. Be sure to check him out on Vimeo, Facebook and Instagram too.
3. Filmmaker IQ
Filmmaker IQ has more of a focus on the filmmaking craft with topics covering the history behind cinematic techniques. They also publish “courses” that cover a variety of topics thoroughly.
