Do you want to make your videos look more epic?
Follow these 3 easy steps to get a cinema film look in just 90 seconds!
STEP 1: Movements
Make your camera move – but without too much shaking. You can use a handheld gimble, a glidecam or just a book! Watch the video to see how to do that. You can also include objects in the foreground for cool cinema look effects.
STEP 2: Flat image
For a flat picture and high dynamic range you can film in a flat picture profile like S-Log (on Sony cameras). That way it is really easy to apply a cinema film look in Adobe Premiere Pro or other editing programs.
STEP 3: Color correction
LUTs are a very easy option if you want to change the color or add contrasts in Adobe Premiere Pro. You can apply and adjust them like presets to your video and there are tons of free LUTs available on the internet.
The icing on the cake are cinemascope bars. Just add them to your finished video and it will look like Steven Spielbergs newest Blockbuster 😉
