Previz software for filmmakers....

I've reviewed a lot of this software. These two are probably the best for filmmakers.

If you want a feeling of reality, then use a 50mm lens that has the same field of vision as a human. For a cinematic feel, always shoot wide or long. That way, the image becomes an interpretation and not just a recording.

When shooting dialogue, always give the characters something to do with their hands to prevent them from just staring at one another. (The Fosters, Padre S01E15).

In real life, when we are talking to others we seldom face them straight on and just talk. Normal dialogue usually happens in a context where we are busy doing things as we carry on our conversation.

Avoid shots where characters are simply facing each other and talking.

I'm thinking of doing a series of scene analysis videos to look at various aspects of cinematography. I did this quickly as a test with little attention to production value. If you enjoy it, let me know and I'll do more and will make sure you have clean sound and video in future film analysis videos.
