Film making today is cheaper than it’s every been. Rivision3’s web series ‘Film Riot’ aims to aid the typical amateur film maker with low-budget tips and tricks.
You don’t have to have a Hollywood studio or a million dollars to make a good short film and this series will show you exactly how.
Pro film maker Ryan Connolly shows you everything from how to get a cheap-but-quality camera to putting exploding special effects in a scene. And, best of all, most projects can be done for under $50.
Even if you never plan on picking up a camera (like me), the series is still really entertaining. Not only does it provide a behind-the-scenes look, but each episode also includes a funny random sketch by Ryan himself using his own techniques.
