What is it that makes student movies look unprofessional?
When i see student movies it is the same effect as i was recording at home with digital usual camera.
Is it the film grain,is it the color corection they need to add? Do they need to slow the movie a bit,maybe couple of frames? Definetly high exposed windows are ugly too.
Also i notice student movies miss some OUT OF REALITY effects.For example if you see DMX video spot for Slippin there are some people waving with hands around him that looks kinda creepy,some parts are slow motion and stuff like that.These elements make you dream and get you in the movie.But in students movies everything is so ordinary and you lose interest in seeing such movies.Of course there are exceptions too…
So i need some advices from you guys for books or dvds or whatever that can make my movie look more professional and not just as i just made a video with friends on holiday or at home or whatever.
