How To Surge Your Filmmaking Game by Just Using Smoke

We see smoke, or haze, used in video production more than we realize. It’s used to bring atmosphere, environment and even character! And the beautiful thing about it is, it works for you!

It accents and brings out the lighting in your shots, gives your characters a whole new element to travel through and even avoid, and how it works for you because it moves on its own and creatively flows in unique ways that sometimes just requires the flip of the remote!

I shot a music video and used a smoke machine to try and enhance the overall production of the video. Check out this filmmaking advice I give you, and definitely think about utilizing a smoke machine in your next project!
