Learn The Science Of Expensive-Looking, Trailer-Worthy Shots
Hollywood Camera Work, creators of the Master Course in High-End Blocking & Staging has recently release their newest course: Hot Moves: The Science of Awesome. HOT MOVES is a 1 DVD addition to The Master Course that’s all about making single shots and master shots look absolutely awesome.
Where The Master Course focuses on drama and coverage, (read Amanda Porter's review here) HOT MOVES focuses on a very different angle of how to make single shots look super expensive and sexy for their own sake. Click on the screen to the right for a preview. What is fascinating is that the vast majority of truly awesome and trailer-worthy shots come from just a handful of techniques, which are explored in HOT MOVES. Click on the screen to the left for a sample lesson.
While Hot Moves seems like it lends itself to very high-budget shooting, the majority of the techniques can be executed even on a very low budget, because it’s the understanding of motion that makes it a hot move, not the equipment you shoot it with.
