Ninja Filmmaking is about being proactive, stealthy, and intentional.
Don't chase the story. Let it come to you.
We gave ourselves just one day, with one filmmaker, and one bag of gear to make a film. Follow along and see how we apply the idea of Ninja Filmmaking, which is to be proactive, stealthy, and nimble to create a film. You’ll see how we approach the interview, how we build out b-roll into full scenes, and how we think through coverage in real time.
Learn the 3/1 rule for going beyond a single shot and covering each scene in a fuller way. Learn the process of Story Mapping, which is how we find the best opportunities for b-roll and sort out what to cover, along with what not to cover. And we’ll also show you our ‘Follow The Puck’ way of thinking that helps you be proactive and stay one step ahead of the story.
