They are done by
By using model miniature’s
By in camera matting (where a part of the frame is taped off, n film is exposed, n then the other part is taped off, n that portion which was previously not exposed is exposed (like a double exposure)
By process projection – camera runs in sync with rear projection, often used for travelling shots.
Post - production
By in camera matting ( where a part of the frame is taped off, n film is exposed, n then the other part is taped off, n that portion which was previously not exposed is exposed ( like a double exposure)
Low budget movie needs more preproduction as we are trying to lock in all the details before we go in to shoot
If you are using a wide-angle lens or a long lens , if you fill in the frame they both have the same depth of field
if using video : Green is better color
Red screen is better for glass
Blue screen is great as it is spectrally high.

kids are the best negotiators
Reframing: look at the bigger picture, zoom out, n realize there is a bigger picture.
If u are fighting over a piece of pizza, zooming out u realize there are other slices they’re that u could work towards
What would you advice
Ask open-ended questions
E.g.: don’t ask if policy can be changed, ask how can it be changed?
Ask questions on what makes the deal fair
We deal with
How do u deal with these?
a- Ignore the stonewall (though do test it, n then ignore it) if it is real issue the other will mention it over and over,
b- Renegotiate the stonewall as an aspiration.
a- deflect attack, by ignoring the attack,
b- reframe the attack, that is not against you but against the problem at hand
c- Reframe attack, n deflect it by changing it into a joke
d- Reframe the issue at hand; let go of the past wrong, n work on the issue at hand.
Ask clarifying questions - why? How did you get to it?
What’s your profit margin?
If they are talking too fast - be careful
Look for body language, being same as what they are saying
Make reasonable request, if they don’t agree then they are probably tricking you.

Emphasize on: separation
Mood- the key light sets the mood
Fill light sets the contrast ratio.
Think about where will the key light be?
What’s the source, what’s the motivation?
Decide on camera angle before you lock the look
Lighting ratio? How much contrast
Key light should ideally be exposed normal, n it establishes the mood of the shot
Ratios are like 4: 1, 8: 1, and 16: 1 so on
Background light: it sets tones, and create context for the environment, it is used solely to light the space around the subject.
Practical’s: used as motivation within the space or as a prop. Practical’s are seen in the scene that you are shooting sometimes, like lamp. Campfire

Met a friend, been almost 13 yrs. since we saw the other, it was like a breath of fresh air, after years and years of just thinking of meeting up it finally happened
People we connect with, even with passage of time there is no change when we meet we pick up where we left off, n take it further, as if time never existed between us, the power of the mind it creates it all
