Tips for Better Video


Three Point basic lighting – basic interview lighting

Documentary filmmaking is always a challenge. Filmmakers who enter this arena need a patience and tenacity and solo work ethic that few other careers require. Settlement Video and Day in the Life filmmaking; however, is even more demanding. This speciality profession demands a filmmaker who not only understands the decipline necessary for credible documentary film work, but also one who appreciates the strict legal parameters of your jurisdiction. Your deadlines are demanding, the due dates are immovable and the stakes are high for your firm and for the rest of your client’s life.

The emotional rewards for us, however are always worth the effort. The effect of these films are real and satisfyingly tangible. The results are directly measured and the subjects of the films are changed forever.
