In the past year I’ve had numerous opportunities to work on different film/video projects, and am hoping to do more of this sort of work in the future.
Something I continually find myself looking for is some kind of online collection of clips showing different film styles. Is there a blog that does for cinematographers and filmmakers what The Sartorialist
does for fashionistas and fashion designers? I’m looking for beautiful, well-executed clips that will inspire me, help me improve my knowledge as far as film styles, techniques, types of shots, etc. and can serve as examples to help me communicate my ideas to others.
I’ve done a lot of searching (especially on YouTube and Vimeo) and have found things scattered around the internet--sometimes tutorials
, sometimes camera tests
, sometimes just a beautiful music video
-- but good examples that are aesthetically pleasing are harder to come by than I would have thought. I don’t necessarily need them to be categorized, the most important thing is that there are numerous, tasteful videos in different styles.
Where do you suggest I go?
Thanks in advance!
