DIY ain’t just for crafts. No Film School specializes in DIY film and video making.
Making video can seem intimidating and technologically complex, but No Film School explains how to make professional looking video on a budget.
I first discovered No Film School through their podcast, Indie Film Weekly, where they discuss new film releases, technology, and industry news. I was intrigued by the concept of DIY filmmaking and explored their website and social media.
Their posts discuss equipment, techniques, film analysis, scriptwriting, grant writing, festivals, distribution, and everything in between. They are consistently inclusive to a variety of skill-levels and budget constraints. Other great YouTubers and content creators are incorporated into their posts.
Their DSLR Cinematography Guide is a 100-page comprehensive beginners guide to shooting video using a DSLR. I personally found this very useful, and more engaging than my camera manual. It is also a living document, which means it is updated as technology evolves. And, it’s free! Well, you have to subscribe to their email newsletters, but that’s free too and conveniently compiles their popular posts for you.
I especially recommend No Film School to Creative Communications students, because video is a essential communications medium for any industry. For example, TV news, PR video responses, or commercials. The DSLR Cinematography Guide is also a great way to learn to use your DSLR camera.
