The Filmmaking Issue

© Chris Schoonover

This month we proudly present Rf’s Filmmaking issue, chock-full of insightful tips, techniques and inspiration to help turn your next film into a modern masterpiece. Nowadays, filmmaking is much more than motion; clients are looking for live streaming, VR, top-notch audio and that killer drone shot to impress their audiences with. The experts we interviewed this month—including Aussie filmmaker Abraham Joffe, the dynamic duo behind Blue Kite Cinema, researchers at Sennheiser and Livestream pros—will teach you how to incorporate these elements into your work seamlessly.

And for those who haven’t dipped their toes into the filmmaking-water just yet (or are just on the cusp of doing so), editorial/documentary photographer Amy Lombard shares the thinking behind her lighting power, and burgeoning filmmaker and fashion/editorial photographer Chris Schoonover digs into how he is building his career. Plus, we’ve got reviews of On1 Photo RAW’s reinvented software, Wacom’s new MobileStudio Pro and a product roundup of stylish (and functional) gear bags.
