Not sure if this is the right place to post as it's sort of pimping a link, but the subject matter of this blog fits more into "Cinematography" than anything else. Jim Cogan is a novice filmmaker and, having made his first video (a music video for a local band) has caught the bug. The blog is basically charting his successes and pitfalls as he embarks upon two more projects - a more ambitious music video and a fictional piece.
It's written with humour and though the blog is very much a beginners experience (with a lot of emphasis on making do with a minimal budget) it's quite a fun read. The opening chapters provide some useful (should I say critical) advice on safety if youre planning to use halogen worklights for rudimentary lighting.
Having come across Jim on the IAC forum, I immediately contacted him and suggested he put a link to this forum in his list of links which he has kindly done. I thought it only fair to return the favour.
He's also just started a podcast about film in general. I can't comment on that as I haven't listened yet, but anyone showing that level of enthusism deserves encouragement.
