If you were to ask me five years ago, “Julian, would you consider a career in film-making?” I would have probably laughed awkwardly and after a slight pause, replied, “I’m not sure.”
During the past five years, I’ve been running around, camera in hand, filming music videos, weddings, and short films because it’s fun. But what happens when you begin working for real clients? Creating TV commercials or Hollywood films? Is fun really enough?
Lets be real here. With the skills I have now, I’m a long way from producing anything of (good) standard. The art of film-making, like most things, requires hard work. And I mean A LOT of hard work. Christopher Nolan took eight years to write Inception. Roger Federer plays an average of five sets a day, on top of conditioning and drill exercises.
This is where this blog comes into play. I will be using this blog as a place where I will critic and comment on most of my work. Make note of what works and what doesn’t. Explain why I did things a certain way and what could have been done to improve the video. Of course, your feedback and constructive criticisms are gladly welcomed.
Besides slamming my own work, I’ll be sharing cool videos, rave about the latest movies, talk gadgets, and maybe share a few tips and tricks with all you aspiring film-makers. Sound good? Good.
Without further ado, welcome to JCLTAY!!
