#OnSet ‘Being A Cinematographer’ Parody Video
Original ‘Being A Cinematographer’ Video from EFTI School of Photography
I found the original video so arrogant I could barely get through it. I was very happy to see the parody released this week with the narrator saying what the original video was actually trying to say. What’s sad is I’ve worked with people with this mind set. It gives real cinematographers who didn’t have their mommy buy them a Red camera a bad name. These two videos are great for a laugh at the very least.
