Here’s how to alter reality—mess with perspective—by changing up your focal length!
Thanks for all the views on last week’s Indy Mogul videos! Here’s a follow-up to both the parody trailer, and hyperlapsing tutorial!

You asked how I built my camera backpack into an over-the-shoulder GoPro rig, so here it is!

Production tips I’ve been meaning to share for a while—How to Shoot Beautiful Wedding Films—just in time for Valentine’s Day!
What goes into a short zombie film? Storyboarding, makeup, snorricam, baseball bat, ADR, SFX, color grading, rotoscoping—I cover it all on today’s episode of Indy News!
I’m shooting a zombie video, so I thought I’d test out my friend Nick’s low-budget camera slider!

Got some new lenses, so I take them to a dark church to test out them out.
Olympus 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 (my heaviest lens—2 lbs.); Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 (my lightest lens—2 oz.); Canon FD 35-105mm f/3.5 (my bargain lens—$50!)
As we leave 2012, I sing my way through all 47 episodes of Indy News from the year!
