Want To Know What You Need To Avoid As A Filmmaker? Watch This!

This is phenomenal filmmaking advice, especially if you’re just getting started. YouTuber Matti Haapoja not only shares some great words of wisdom, but I’m thoroughly impressed with how he teaches in his tutorials; he’s very user friendly and easy to understand.

Just getting started as a filmmaker? Then you need to watch this. His advice, from one filmmaker to another, is spot on. And hey, why not learn from our mistakes?! In the video Matti explores ten mistakes every new filmmaker makes when they’re first starting out. These include the importance of colouring, getting the right exposure and more. I especially liked his last point BUT I’m not going to tell you what it was, because I want you to watch it.

Be sure to check out his other great tutorials too – like his Making iPhone Footage More Cinematic! I mean, come on, that’s awesome! If you want to know how to make movies then be sure to check Matti’s YouTube channel out!
