Sounds like a new dish in the menu that you haven't tasted. Indeed most videos and VFX that we encounter on a daily basis is either mysterious or its considered a hi-tech game beyond the reach and understanding of most people.
Artist, Filmmaker and a Professional Speaker.
A late night conversation with Sagar Amlani, a LinkedIn expert led to this quick fun video...
So last evening, I had my regular weekly meetup with my students on the platform and I was sharing some tips based on my experience of the live-stream that I had with the founder of Knorish a while ago. Most, were exited to know how I could have different looking imagery while going live as a guest in a stream.
The interaction continued and I showcased how simply one can do wow looks in OBS. Sagar, was excited like a kid and he wanted to crack the code then itself and he insisted that he understands it clear for him to execute. I wrapped up the session and soon he texted back for some clarification but I was into another session. I connected with him in a couple of hours and by then he had put to use most of the hacks we discussed. He wanted to cross the last mile and he made use of a PPT slide to make a video together.
With Sagar in action...
The video is a sense of fulfillment for me as I wanted to make video production as easy and simple as possible, yet not compromising on quality and aesthetic appeal. I remembered that, in our apprentice days it would take us years before we got a hold of the camera or make creative suggestions but now its a more open game. We all can make great videos with some simple understanding of the elements of Sound, Lights and how the camera behaves. Once, you know that you become a master and not a slave to the gadget.
Until you cross the bridge of your insecurities, you can't begin to explore your possibilities
