In the first part of our series on blogs for film professionals, we featured three general filmmaking blogs, touching on the art, craft and business of making movies. This week, we shift focus to our community of our industry's technical professionals, and five outstanding blogs that cater to them.
Disclaimer: This is by no means a comprehensive list of film tech blogs, or a 'best-of' list. We realize there are many resources out there, and we'd love to hear about your favorite sites in the comments, especially up-and-coming blogs that aren't on everybody's radar yet. In this series, we're primarily focusing on one-person blogs, run by film professionals as a way to share what they've learned with their readers. With that said, shooters, editors, motion graphics and VFX artists, 3D animators, please take note, because this article is for you.
Wolfcrow: Workflows galore
Sareesh Sudhakaran is the definition of a multihyphenate. He is a writer, director, producer, production company owner, and electrical engineer based out of Mumbai, India. If that wasn't enough, he somehow finds time to author and operate wolfcrow, an intelligent blog on end-to-end film workflows. Camera guides, product shootouts, advice on rigging, lighting, audio, editing, CGI, delivery - there's just an amazingly vast array of articles spanning the entire technical spectrum of filmmaking. He even offers advice on the business of filmmaking, as evidenced by his recent series Cinema vs. Television vs Internet Video, with a clear breakdown of the opportunities for filmmakers distributing in each medium.
