Filmmaker Richard Michalak has spent over 30 years behind the camera, and in the video above by Hugh Fenton he condenses all of that knowledge into a set of tips, techniques and concepts that will prove to be incredibly useful whether or not your interests involve moving pictures.
To summarize what Michalak — whose Director of Photography credits include movies like 1998?s What Dreams May Come — says in the video would be both foolish and completely impossible.
Suffice it to say that, in a little under 40 minutes, he covers the basics of visual storytelling beautifully, and even offers some really useful tips like this little stabilization trick for handheld shots.
