Are you tired of watching lousy low budget movie flicks and you think you can do better except you don’t know how? Well, you should take digital filmmaking courses and make your own movie. These courses will help you in your journey as to making your own digital film.
There are several digital filmmaking courses for you to learn first before you venture into making a movie. The cinematography course teaches you what formats and aspect ratios to use in filmmaking, as well as how using film compares to digital video. You will also be able to understand the different camera specifications. There are several digital cameras in the market with matching features and formats, so it is better if you have an idea in all of them.
Sound is one of the most important parts of filmmaking.
This course teaches you to record sound effectively the right way. Sound gives more color and emotion to a movie; it could prove disastrous to your project if you do not have any idea in this department. Furthermore, you may not be able to relay the true essence of your movie with bland sounds.
Then there is the editing, here you learn to appropriately combine shots like pieces of puzzles. It is important to learn the techniques of proper editing. You must sense when the audience has taken hold of the meaning of the shot and cut it to the next one. Factors that contribute to the proper length of the shots are also learned in this course. However one of the cores of digital filmmaking is production; this course teaches you how to manage the financial aspect of filmmaking. This can prove vital especially when you will be working on a tight budget.
The importance of taking digital filmmaking courses is apparent. Trying to dive right through movie making without the proper knowledge is suicide. You should take these courses, you might bring home the Oscar.

Question by Mr. Hat: What Band Used Their Entire Music Video Budget Filming Themselves Giving Away The Money From Their Budget?
I remember watching a music video once late at night where the band was given X amount of money to film a music video. Instead of making anything with cheesy special effects, they hired a cheap camera crew and just ran around town giving away the rest of their money. I loved it. Does anyone know what band and song that was? Also, (a more cynical question) did they really give away that money, or was that just a staged “give away?”
Anyone know the name of the song?

Just in time for 4th of July themed projects, royalty free music website RoyaltyFreeKings.com announced today two additions to their rapidly expanding lineup of background music: ‘Patriotic Jazz’ and ‘Patriotic Punk Rock’. Perfect for Independence Day based commercials and videos, as well as US based political campaigns, the two albums feature well known American patriotic songs with new, original arrangements. The standards found on Patriotic Jazz are performed by an authentic jazz ensemble – guitar, saxophone, drums bass and keys, while Patriotic Punk Rock features a hard hitting, uptempo rock band.
Just like ‘Epic Patriotic’ – RoyaltyFreeKings.com’s first patriotic album launched earlier this year, Patriotic Jazz and Patriotic Punk Rock also have ‘extras’ packages available, which consist of stems (individual instrument tracks) giving a producer even more mileage and flexibility out of the royalty free patriotic music. The albums are now available for immediate download and legal use within low budget productions exclusively through RoyaltyFreeKings.com.
The goal of RoyaltyFreeKings.com, since launching in early 2012, has been to make searching for background music easy and streamlined. The main benefit of a crowd-sourcing business model, like that used by many royalty free websites, is a rapid expansion of content. The downside is inevitable – with so many tracks being uploaded, the catalog easily gets bloated with mediocre music that does little to enhance a project, whether it’s a commercial, wedding video, film or webisode. Producers looking through websites licensing stock music (also known as ‘library music’ or ‘production music’) have to either waste time sifting through such huge collections of music to find something they’d actually want to use, or worse – settle for something inferior just because they don’t have the time to continue searching.
RoyaltyFreeKings.com solves this issue by hand picking each and every track, only allowing in music that meets a strict standard of musicality and production value. The result is a streamlined shopping experience where a producer can find, purchase and download the music they need within just a few minutes.
The website also recently added a large expansion of their free background music download section. Available to anyone working on a project (with just a few exceptions) with a budget of less than US$ 250,000, each free track is available for immediate download. The range of styles and genres include: epic music, dramatic orchestral, ambient piano, jazz, comedy, rock and suspense tension. The selection covers full length tracks and music loops.
The free stock music is geared towards people who need legal clearance for the music they use, but don’t always have the resources to pay for it. Owners of YouTube ”partner’ accounts fall into this category – where using unauthorized music runs the risk of getting an account suspended, or worse: getting sued by the owners of the music.
RoyaltyFreeKings.com’s collection not only covers the most used styles and genres of music, such as: pop rock, acoustic and romantic, suspense tension and heroic inspiring, but also a growing list of unique ‘hybrid’ albums. Some of these include ‘Epic Patriotic’ – US patriotic songs in an epic trailer music setting, and the upcoming releases ‘Acoustic Christmas’, ‘Pop Rock Christmas’ and ‘Epic Christmas’.
