Hi, I'm 15 and a first time Filmaker and was looking for some Cinematography tips.
Anything great will be great.

P.S If it helps, I'm using a Sony DCR IP220, and want that bright modern film look, in colour I mean, not latitude and stuff.

Hi Matthew, perhaps you should list some of the films you like the look of, and try to describe exactly what it is you're seeing that is attracting and involving to you. It's then a much easier case for the various posters to work backwards and make some suggestions based on the facilities you have available.

What do you have in the way of editing and post production equipment? With a camera like yours sometimes the only way certain changes can be made to the image is in post production. It's not going to have the same supermegaultra technical standards as other approaches, but if what you want is to experiment with different looks and see what kind of feeling each one evokes in combination with your shot, cast, location etc - it's a great way of learning.

Thanks for that tip, the colour I like best is like the end bit of Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy, could that be done with a polarising lens or summink.
