It’s DIY Friday again. You almsot always need lights to shoot video… but you can’t always afford those rather expensive pro kits. We’re here to help, and curate the webs DIY tutorials. Let’s put together some cheap lighting.

This week TheLindsayBoo teaches you how to make a $20 light with barndoors for focusing the light, adding gels, and diffusion, and such.

This is a HOW TO video for people on a tight budget. For under $20 I manage to create decent lighting with barndoors using items from my local hardware store and dollar store.

We’d say be careful with cardboard barn doors… lights get hot.

Crop factor?

We’ve been so busy with It’s a Rough Life that we almost forgot to blog today. Enjoy our Friday Film School snagged from Vimeo.

Crop factor, oh yeah. This is kinda dense, important if you’re shooting with DSLR’s like we do. It’ll keep you from wasting money renting/ buying lens that aren’t going to do what you thought. Read the whole lesson here.
