Cinematography

Lighting by Drone

Lighting by Drone

We’ve seen before how strapping bright LEDs to a drone can create a sweet UFO-like effect. Brooklyn Aerials used a 1600-watt light attached to a Freefly ALTA 6 drone in a different way – to illuminate the fall foliage in sharp contrast the the darkness of night.

Unreal Real-time Cinematography

During SIGGRAPH 2016, a team of game developers and CG artists used Unreal Engine 4 to demonstrate a technique for shooting a live actor and turning their performance into a cinematic sequence in just minutes, rather than the weeks or months it might normally take.

Deakins: Shadows in the Valley

Deakins: Shadows in the Valley

Cinematographer Roger Deakins is responsible for some of the most striking imagery in the films of the Coen Brothers, as well as Kundun, Jarhead and Skyfall. Plot Point Productions pays tribute to this true master of composition, light and shadow in this short montage.
