No matter how much you think you know about creating truly inspiring content, or the art of cinematography, choosing the right equipment, or the best way to tell a great story…there will always be more to learn.
Philip Bloom is a filmmaker that we’ve got a lot of respect for. Why? Because he loves what he does, and he’s damn good at it. Not only does he produce beautiful and inspiring work, he also takes the time to share his knowledge with aspiring filmmakers. He happily walks you through the equipment he used, how he used it, and why he decided to use particular pieces of equipment over others. Not to mention how he goes about colour grading, which software he uses, what frame rates he shoots, and why he chooses specific lenses and aspect ratios, etc.
Of course when creating any form of art, there is no ‘right answer’ But the beauty of Philip is that he doesn’t claim to have the answers. He just creates work he’s passionate about, and shares his process.
We continue to learn from him and follow his career closely. What we love most of all about Philip Bloom above all else is that he is completely egoless. He knows there is enough out there for everyone. He’s not worried about holding onto all his production secrets in fear that someone might come along and do it better. No wonder he’s so successful. We’ve been following him for almost 3 years now, and have always known that he was a guy we wanted to see succeed. Which is why we’re so excited for the new documentary series he shot for CNN called ‘The Wonder List’ He travels to all corners of the earth capturing unbelievably incredible footage. We’ll be looking out for it, and if you want to learn from the best… you should too.
We knew it was only a matter of time. Philip..if this post ever finds it way to you, thank you from vitalmedia.ca
