    In my humble opinion, it is Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro. You also need good lens

    Hi Kailer! Nice to see you here! Sadly, copyright is an obstacle we all face when making movies.

    But there are solutions! Many composers in our community can help you, free of charge. They need experience and a portfolio and you need a soundtrack.

    There is also the option to use free copyright music. There are online resources, such as bensound.

    Hi Amy!

    There are talented people in any industry, not just photography. Don’t get discouraged! 🙂

    You can study photography and you can learn the basics. You can become a better photographer by taking photos. Try working for a photographer and learn as much as possible from that person. It helps to have a mentor.

    I believe many people would be interested to know what type of microphone they can use to record the sound, how to properly do a voice-over, etc. There are many details that need to be taken into consideration when shooting a film and sound is one of them.

    Yes, there are many sounds that are included in a film. Many people believe that music is the only “artistic concept” of the sound, but there is foliage. For example, during autumn, the leaves fall and they make a sound. Many artists recreate these sounds to integrate them as best as they can in a movie

    I agree!

    I will also share two urban photos from Craiova, Romania.

    I will explain the difference between Gaffer Tape and Duct Tape.

    GafferTape can be used on a variety of surfaces, such as vinyl, wood, ceramic, plastic, aluminium and steel. However, the Gaffer Tape can be removed cleanly, leaving less residue than the Duck Tape. Unlike Duct Tape, Gaffer Tape can be applied easier than Duct Tape because it can be torn both ways, both on its length and width.

    Duct Tape can be used for carpets or other uneven surfaces. It is a popular choice because you can use it for almost anything. However, it has a stronger adhesive than Gaffer Tape.

    In conclusion, both Gaffer Tape and Duct Tape are good, the only difference is that Gaffer Tape leaves less residue and can be applied better than Duct Tape.

    The Key Grip, the Gaffer and the Cinematographer work together. They supervise the grip crews and report the progress to the DoP. The Key Grip needs problem-solving skills, technical knowledge about the gear and strong communication skills because he needs to coordinate the crew. The Key Grip also coordinates the transportation of the equipment and is in charge of its set-up. The key grip plays an important role on set.

    The Gaffer is the Chief Lighting Technician. He designs and executes the lighting plan. His head assistant is called the Best Boy. The ELT are responsible for getting power to the set. The Gaffer knows what needs to be done, and where the lights should be placed. The Grip does the actual work and places the lights. Then, there is the Grip Department. The Key Grip works with the DP to have the correct lighting. The Key Grip is in charge of the physical camera movement as well. Then, the Key Grip has an assistant, called the Best Boy Grip. And the Grips are the ones that work with non-electrical components of light and camera setups, such as tripods or cranes. There is also the dolly grip. They push and pull the dolly during filming.

    Do you have any additional accessories that you can use? A gimbal, a tripod, a lav, a ringlight? Or only your smartphone?

    I looked it up and I found a few apps that can help you with this. The problem is that I haven’t tried any of them yet and I don’t know if they have support for Romanian language.

    I guess you use your phone to record these interviews. There is an app called Rev Voice Recorder that you can do both recording and transcription in the same time, on your phone. The app is also free to use. It seems to have a 99% accuracy rate, iOS and Android compatibility.

    Another app that you can try is Temi Record and Transcribe which uses a speech recognition technology based on AI. The accuracy is considered to be 80-85% and the first 45 minutes are free. It’s also compatible with iOS and Android.

    Dragon Anywhere is an app that has a wider support. I saw online it supports French and German, it might also support Romanian. It also offers cloud-based sharing and the possibility to add custom words for a better accuracy. I didn’t found a free version, just a subscription.

    I read a few conversations about Otter. Apparently, it can be used to record zoom meetings, lectures and interviews. It provides live captioning feature for accessibility and it’s technology is powered by AI.

    I haven’t tried them yet and I don’t know whether they provide support for Romanian language but you can check them out. 🙂

    This is a long and detailed document, Dustin! You could write a Thesis based on it. Congratulations for all the hard work!!!
