Dealt Deals Dope Doc Divination – Just Shoot It 77

episode

Director Luke Korem and Producer Bradley Jackson join Matt and Oren to talk about their new documentary Dealt, which chronicles the story of Richard Turner, one of the worlds best close up magicians… who also happens to be blind. Learn how they made this hit documentary a reality. Moving, funny, it’s everything you want and a real inspiration.

We discuss how they crafted the documentary, which was shot entirely on C300 and Red, and how they made sure the narrative made sense, even though they didn’t have any control over how the story was unfolding in front of them.

Just Shoot It Now on Reddit

episode

Hey Just Shoot It Fam*,

Oren and I were looking for a better way for the Just Shoot It community to share links, news and their latest projects with each other.

So, we started our very own Subreddit.

Go check it out, share a few of your fav episodes, your projects, etc. Get in the mix and help grow this thing. And if you’re a real reddit-head, drop us a line. What are we doing wrong? What are we doing right? Do you wanna help mod? Matt (me) is a real dummy when it comes to Reddit, so…

Any other suggestions on how to grow the community?

Drop us a line on twitter. @mrmattenlow will read it, but may not respond. @SmiteyPieLeg wont read it, but if he somehow does, he’ll respond with like, way too much, in his co-host’s opinion. It’ll be a little overwhelming.

*Also, we should come up with a better way to refer to the community. Now taking suggestions.

How Important is the Director’s Original Vision? – Just Shoot It 76

episode, Listener Questions

In this episode we discuss what that means to have a vision as a director, how you communicate it to your cast and crew and what the validity is of having a vision. We also spend some time answering a series of listener questions before hitting up our usual unpaid endorsements segment.

So what are you working on Matt? Matt is deep in various levels of production at the moment including post. Has been working on commercials, finished a series but has also been trying to enjoy summer! Caught some movies and generally hanging out with people over coffee etc. Went and saw the 1st Harry Potter movie as well as Goodfellas. Matt is feeling recharged and ready to go with his next projects starting to solidify – lots of meetings and phone calls.

How about you Oren? Went and saw Coming to America at the cemetary – yup you read that right. According to Oren, that movie holds up really well! Had a shoot for Converse, 10 spots over 4 days. Three days before those 4 days it was Labour Day weekend and they had to build all the sets and complete pre-production work. Holidays are a very low priority in the industry, as many of you would understand.

During the first 15 minutes or so of this episode we discuss commercial production with regards to Oren’s Converse commercials and the catalyst for this particular topic.

Oren pitched an idea that seemed to satisfy all the criteria needed, and he felt comfortable in his ability to pull it off.

He made the decision to pivot his vision and adopt more of their Production Designers approach after having his own ideas originally.

Oren commented that when he was making YouTube videos back in the day he had more control and vision. Nowadays he finds himself shooting more coverage and being opportunistic.

Matt said sometimes people that are working with you ask about your vision, as they are trying to understand what to give you, and what is good or bad about their own work. Listen to the first ~35 minutes of this episode to get the full story.

As it turns out, everyone is making Matt look bad. His estimate of how many people would email them from Episode 73 has been squashed. On top of that, the submissions have been fantastic and have been forwarded on to Oren’s manager Jacob as promised.

Listener Questions

How to share big files? Matt and Oren both use Dropbox, but discuss how to share things to various people including their use of Vimeo, Google Docs

How do you keep track of different schedules / different calendars for all your projects? Google Calendar lets you create a dedicated calendar for a particular project. Also enables the ability to sync with other people so you’re all on the same page.

How much money should i save up to move to LA? Listen from around 40 minutes onwards to find out the answer. The best estimate though is about $10K to give yourself 3 to 4 months to live on.

What should my first course of action be when i move to LA? Make friends with everybody and try and get some entry level jobs, listen to the whole answer from roughly 45 minutes onwards

Do you know many others like me that have discovered film ‘later’ in life? You have nothing to be concerned about, you’re 22! But an ‘outsiders’ perspective is not a bad thing. You can hear this with all the other listener questions during the second half of the episode.
