Vincent Laforet on Chase Jarvis: Live
Chase Jarvis: live, takes an inside look when talking to Vincent Laforet. They sit and discuss the in's and out's of film and video production. Vincent talks about his move from photography to video direction. He talks about his technical background moving into the creative side and letting go of the technical to get the best out of his creative. He and Chase discuss using the correct camera for the job, in other words, a red is not always the best camera sometimes it might be a 5D or something else. The lesson here is there is no one size that fits all, and knowing your equipment is important to get the best out of what you have. They both talk about how learning goes on, and how they develop and evolve into new forms and areas within their expanding fields. Part of really growing and learning is to be comfortable not knowing and let the ego go. This will allow you to ask questions and gather information to develop new areas of interest in the field of photography and video. They also talked about the need to et past the stigma, that we have to know how to do everything. We don't have it all, but we can surround ourselves with the people who do and the understanding of techniques can help you but not knowing will not prevent you. They also discuss the need to hustle to get the job, but that it's not a bad thing. You just have to be driven. There's so much competition if you want it, you have to go get it. The only down fall I saw (or heard) was that they were having some audio difficulties with crackling that was rather annoying. They seem to fix it for a while but then it came back and went. Once you get past that it was well worth watching.
