What are your go-to filmmaking YouTube channels focused on improving your craft and/or your film business acumen?

I'm trying to create a directory of the best YT channels for aspiring filmmakers.

I'm specifically looking for the ones that ONLY a filmmaker would like rather than channels that talk generally about films or behind the scenes or have some other broad appeal. Less Insider and more Indie Film Hustle.

Thank you!

EDIT: Damn, y'all, these are great! Thank you!!

Man Bites Dog (1992) as a satirical look at the violent and exploitative practices of filmmaking

I’m like the man who shits and sings, only instead of singing I do nothing.

My mom used to be big into French films and always mentions this film when we talk about them, not as one that she loved necessarily, but one she remembered. And what she remembered was the violence, understandably. Man Bites Dog makes it very clear that it’s incredibly violent, not super graphic, but very violent. I finally decided to watch it and found it to be a clever critique of violence and film in general. Specifically I think the film critiques the relationship between producers and filmmakers, as well as the relationship between filmmakers and audience. It tries to illustrate the inherent exploitative nature of filmmaking with gruesome acts of violence as they’re filmed by a giddy film crew.

I see Ben almost as a producer. Remy and the other filmmakers start with a mutual agreement with Ben, but soon they need more money for film- since Ben is such a good subject. It becomes clear rather quickly to Ben that they need him, so he doesn’t hesitate to take advantage of them. He does worse and worse shit as the filmmakers lap it up and become desensitized to the carnage, even indulging in it themselves for much of the film. All in the name of CINEMAAAAAA! And in the end, much like real life, everyone gets fucked because of the guy with the money who doesn’t know when they’ve won.

Whenever a movie is hyper violent I usually assume that it’s either idiotic drivel, like Saw 19 or w/e, or some critique of violence like a Scorsese movie. Man Bites Dog certainly tries to critique violence Γ  la Scorsese, and while it doesn’t fail, I think it could have done more. My favorite scene, and the one most indicative of my reading, I think, is when Ben and the Filmmakers rape and murder that couple. I saw it surely as Ben, a producer or similar figure/entity, showing the filmmakers, as a stand in for filmmakers, but also for an audience, how great and prosperous it can be to literally rape and pillage their subjects. And from the audience’s perspective it’s excitement and revelry. Another telling scene is when they rob the old lady. They go in and tell her β€œwe’re here to ask about elder loneliness.” Ben kills her before she can answer since that’d just be a drag, then they proceed to loot her apartment. Obviously the whole movie is a kind of β€œmockumentary,” but I think this scene is the most specifically critical of documentaries- while others are more critical of film as a whole. It’s

What skills in filmmaking are both rare and valuable?

I recently watched a talk by Cal Newport, where he basically said that in our society, those who go to have highly successful careers are excellent in a rare and valuable skill.

So my question is this: in this day and age where you can walk into a best buy and come out with semi professional filmmaking gear, where you can hire talented editors for cheap through freelance websites, where everyone can call themselves a filmmaker, what are the skills that are still rare and valuable?

I am thinking that those who go beyond the technical side of filmmaking, to be more creative can sometimes offer something that is rare and, when they are good, can also be valuable.

What do you guys think?

David Fincher on the two extremes of filmmaking, the Kubrick and the Spielberg way

I recently read an interview to David Fincher and I was struck by this take of his;

β€œI have a philosophy about the two extremes of filmmaking. The first is the Kubrick way, where you’re at the end of an alley in which four guys kicking the shit out of a wino. Hopefully the audience members will know this scenario is morally wrong, even though it’s not presented as if it the viewer is the one being beaten up; it’s more as if you’re witnessing an event. Inversely, there’s the Spielberg way, where you’re dropped into the middle of the action and you’re going to live the experience vicariously, not only through what’s happening but though the emotional flow of what people are saying. It’s a much more involved style. I find myself attracted to both styles at different times, but mostly I’m interested in just presenting something and letting people decide for themselves what they want to look at.”

This idea intrigued me and I started to look back to other great filmmakers to see if I could determine where they fit. I was surprised to notice how quickly one could trace a pattern within the spectrum.

Kubrick style filmmakers:

Michelangelo Antonioni, David Lynch, Robert Bresson, Max Ophuls, Otto Preminger, David Cronenberg, Michael Haneke, Bela Tarr, David Fincher, Stanley Kubrick, Jim Jarmusch

Spielberg style filmmakers:

Alfred Hitchcock, John Ford, Frank Capra, Akira Kurosawa, John Cassavetes, Terrence Malick, Jonathan Demme, Jean Renoir, Howard Hawks, Charlie Chaplin, Steven Spielberg, D. W. Griffith

As I said before, this is a wide spectrum of two extremes and Fincher obviously didn’t mean this as some sort of cinematic manifiesto. However I do think that this is an interesting perspective to see in a general way what type of reaction do certain filmmakers want from the viewer.

Karl Freund's contributions to cinema include inventing the "unchained camera" and pioneering other filmmaking techniques. His directing and cinematography work also speaks for itself. He deserves more recognition in the grand scheme of things.

I read an article today about Karl Freund's career that's made me wonder how other people regard his legacy. Is it fair to say he's been forgotten or overlooked? I think the latter applies.

https://councilofzoom.co.uk/2021/01/karl-freund-cinemas-longest-shadow/

While I do think that Freund is remembered by many film fans, I do agree with this article in regard to him deserving more recognition as a pioneer, especially when it comes to pushing the medium forward with technological breakthroughs. I wasn’t aware of some of his uncredited contributions to some very well-known movies until today. Do you think his fractured relationships with more celebrated filmmakers of the time period resulted in his contributions being overshadowed or dismissed?

People do still talk about The Mummy, so "forgotten" is a stretch. But I would like to see his overall work given more reappraisal.

Any Filmmakers (or aspiring filmmakers) here? I’m a 26 year old male who has wanted to get into filmmaking since I was 19 but don’t know anyone

So since I was 19 I’ve been wanting to make movies, however due to several problems I have: unemployment, anxiety, depression and other stuff I have been unable to. However now I am ready to go out and meet people to start making movies with once it is safe to do so. I’ll be a Production assistant or a camera person. I’ll love to direct eventually but willing to start small.

I was going to go to University of Gloucestershire University on a film production course but had to defer a year due to COVID-19.

Why does everyone seem to forget that Dave Filoni not only liked the sequels, but also helped behind the scenes on all 3 movies? He was clearly getting some training in live action filmmaking.

(I’m gonna keep pointing out that the post flairs on this sub are fucking garbage)

Seriously though, if I were him I don’t think I’d be happy seeing all these people saying I’m gonna erase something I helped create.

I wish the guy well, and I’m super happy that Disney/Lucasfilm are giving him the opportunity follow his dreams and create Star Wars stories in both live action and animation.

Storyboard for Filmmaking Template

My partner and I are in the planning stages of filming a documentary. I had previously been using Milanote for storyboarding, and it was really nice for clicking images into the columns, but Milanote has not been a completely useful tool for me in the way that Notion has. Notion can do so much more of everything. So I've moved all of my creative work from Milanote into Notion, starting with my storyboards and color palettes. It turns out Notion works just great for storyboarding. I prefer vertical storyboards, and accomplish this with a kanban view. Each column is a scene, and I can use views to display as much or as little about the shot as I need - scene description, narration, dialogue, meta, or just the story images alone.

I've created a template using this methodology to share (sample content from The Empire Strikes Back film). I hope there are other creatives and filmmakers who can benefit from a template like this.

Has there ever been filmmaking engineering as impressive as dragging a 320 ton ship over a mountain in "fitzcarraldo"?

Watched this film again today, and I've been reminded of what an absurd and ridiculous achievement it is.

Without the use of any special effects, the cast, in the middle of the Amazon, dragged a 320 ton steamship over a mountain and into a neighbouring river using primitive Winches and pulleys that they constructed themselves?

Utterly ridiculous. For a film about obsession and madness, everyone was method acting on set.

The entire production of it was crazy, with people offering to murder the lead actor because he was pissing people off so much, people chopping off legs with chainsaws, paralysis, multiple deaths.....

Has there ever been a engineering feat as impressive as this when a film is being made? Bridge over the river kwai comes to mind, but I don't think it can beat it.

Any suggestions?

How WGA screenwriters The Thornton Brothers made the leap to directing, with $25k, a basement, an iPhone, and 2 actors. Guerrilla filmmaking at its finest! ............. Plus, thoughts on rewriting, the business of Hollywood itself, and lots more.

Episode 18 of Re-Entry is out!

Was really stoked to do this one, only a few days before the release of CACTUS JACK, the directorial debut of The Thornton Brothers and my first credit as a producer!

We had a great conversation that drifted from rewriting, to the ups and downs of working in Hollywood, and the reason they chose to make such a volatile movie in the most DIY way possible. TONS OF GOLD in this one.

Also -- these guys have an AMA coming up on r/Filmmakers today at 12 PM PST. Should be pretty epic. Make sure to check it out!

Beginner in photography and filmmaking

Last month I decided to finally buy a camera. I am at the beginning of photography and especially filmmaking. I practiced about 2 years only with a Pixel 3, recently a Pixel 4 and an iPhone 10. But I have no idea what camera should I buy. I would like something from Canon or Sony. I want something with a good video quality and good photo quality as well. In the passed weeks I learned a lot about cameras and I thought about a Canon 80D, is not very expensive for me, I calculated the price including obviously the camera, the Canon 10-18mm lens, a bag, a memory card and a Joby gorillapod. But some of my mates told me that I shouldn't start with a Canon 80D and some of them started with this camera. I got really confused, I also did some research about but the same confusion. So what do you think? Should I buy it?

Can a gopro be used for beginner/amateur filmmaking?

Hi everyone! So right now I dont have any money at all but I plan on saving up for a camera. I want to get into film and I plan on taking some courses at my community college. Would a gopro hero 9 be sufficient enough for basic, amateur filming? I only get to save about 100 dollars (usd) a month from disability. So if I wanted a more expensive camera, that would take at least 1 to 2 years to save for. As for a go pro I could save up in about four months. Would a go pro work for me for now until I build this up as a more consistent hobby and possibly degree option?
