The DSLR Film School – new friend of the planet5D family

by planetLuke8 Comments

Many of you will remember our new friend planetLuke (Luke Neumann) from the Canon EOS 5D Mark III movie we posted – “Copelandia” – a Canon EOS 5D Mark III ‘test’ video with a story – well, he has come over to planet5D to post their series of HDSLR training videos and we're thrilled to have him on board.

This is Luke's first post as planetLuke… keep an eye out for the rest of the training here on planet5D!

DSLR Film School

The DSLR Film School is a playlist of videos meant to cover every aspect of creating a video in great detail.  It's a work in progress but the idea is simple.  Focus on each setting, analyze it's function, and explain it using analogies and real world examples.  It's not for everyone.  Some people get more from “user-manual” style tutorials that just lay out the facts and the terminology.  This series is not for those people.

The first video in the series focuses on shutter speed and the main goal is to have the viewer understand this setting completely when they are done watching.

Aren't you glad to have Luke on board?

  1. Hmm….are there budding filmmakers out there who really don’t know the differences between the use of a shutter speed of 1/5 and 1/500 ?

    1. Oh heck yes there are a bunch of people just coming in… let’s remember, at one point you didn’t know it either 😉

    2. I try to make tutorials that either…

      A. I could have used when I first started out


      B. Something I would really enjoy watching right now.

      I have taught several people locally and the way I went about basic stuff like Shutter Speed seemed to make a lot of sense to them. So I figured it was a good starting point for this series. I have more advanced tutorials too btw.

  2. Loved it Luke…good job. The idea of teaching one core truth quickly is very helpful. Thanks
