Tracking Shots Film Blog

Welcome to Tracking Shots, a resource for young and aspiring filmmakers. This is where you'll learn about the world of film as well as find tips and tricks for working on your own projects.

I'll be discussing the best equipment to buy on a limited budget, how to shoot, what to watch and much more. I'll also be answering your questions and posting 'how to' videos.

Check back each week to see what's new.
