Knoptop says:

Personally, I find that a tight deadlines and limited resources are the best ingredients for creativity.

PRODUCTION VALE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DavidSegerOfficial says:

Ya ya ya dude, I just said David Lynch subscribes to the theory, not that he came up with it. I just specifically like Lynch’s fishing analogy.

awesomeghost0 says:

I get my ideas from other people’s films

KLProductiongermany says:

I once had to mow the lawn but also wanted to do a video. Check out my “ALKO in love” video on my chanel!^^

Thiago H. Cardoso says:

I kinda follow Dave’s tips when I shot my music video. Doing a location scouting before shooting or even before writing the script is much better and clearer for the production, I could imagine the scenes right from there. You can see the result at my channel. 😉

TheLuerker says:

when I looking for inspiration I listen to the song and mute the tv and flip around for a minuet or two tern it off and draw for a wile letting my ideas build, ask the band if they want to be in the movie get there point of view. set my idea up with planing seen by seen

Misterdarkeh says:

I take a shower.

GnomeClubProductions says:

Whoah man don’t need to be angry, I can tell you’re on your period judging by the caps in your post. I don’t need to chill out, I live in Greenland, all we do is chill out. Freezing is a serious problem so shut up, I find your comment offensive to my Eskimo people

jollybison says:

Take something totally normal, and give it a twist.

HotManJonah says:

all what the guy said was that this was boring

iProScopesQuick says:

I really liked the Train Drive by Video clip. Was just perfectly composed.

supperpoopinglog says:

Good tips man

Rockwarrior2004 says:

well instead of being mature and ignoring my comment you have to act like a child and bitch about it. But thanks for feeding me. I win now.

DougFunt says:

WOULD WE BE FINE?? WOULD WE?? Someone has to say something. You and people like you are a miserable presence, annoying those of us who just want to watch and enjoy. Just go away. Stop pretending to unsub and just go away without a word. No one would care.

GnomeClubProductions says:

fuck me twice ^_^

askjerry says:

I really appreciate this kind of input. I may never do much more than make videos for my “Askjerry” page… but it is great to get an inside scoop on the process. It will help me to make a better video… even if for my own enjoyment. So once again… THANKS!

EPICminiMOVIES says:

fuk u

NotAnOrdanaryGirl says:

Oh okay, Thank you(:

MrGoldxfinger says:

nice video, fascinating ideas which give me a lot to mull over

GnomeClubProductions says:

Fuck you man, and I’m not a “sir” I’m a big beautiful black lady who’ll kick your ass. Also I am VERY offended by the *’s you put in your sentence, that was unnecessary, as for your comments, I do have to reply to comments I don’t like. It’s a rare genetic disease I have, don’t judge. And I think it’s worse to reply to videos you don’t like. And by the way I am a clusterfuck, that’s not funny it’s very serious. By the way your plane is going to fail if you don’t chill your jets, jets get hot

Rockwarrior2004 says:

yea well that’s okay I just get tied of seeing updates and don;t watch it. But really you have to ask yourself, who is the larger idiot, me, or the guy who reads my comment, and then starts feeding the troll? Really if you ignored my post we would be fine.

syz knockaholics says:

My ideas come from drugs

NoLabelProductionsCA says:

that wink at the end of the video seemed rapey

kermitthefrog512 says:

when i make a music video, i film a few angles of singing and playing instruments, then film a short film that is themed to that song, then i just mix those two types of videos together.

kermitthefrog512 says:

hey Griffin, can you do more tutorials that are directed towards people with little to no budget?

DougFunt says:

You’re a genius! Those shows really AREN’T on! It took me a YEAR to realize it!!! Thanks for finally unsubbing, we’ve been hoping dummies like you would all finally leave!

EPICminiMOVIES says:

What do you mean “don’t use harsh words!” You “sir” used f*ck!! and yes, you horse f*cking genius of idiocy, you “indeed” are a troll! you don’t have to reply to comments if you don’t like them, you can ignore them because it is just my opinion! And to f*cking comment back like that is just retarded, and a toatal show of how much of a horse f*cking donkey ballsack you are! You probably don’t understand because you are clearly brain f*cked. Now i suggest that you chill the f*ck out you clusterf*k

GrammaDumpling says:

I get my ideas from……. whatever i think about.

rcookman says:

Good advice clearly explained.

Cybermotron says:

Usually you’d do some compositing, because shooting a tv screen live means the shutter speed of your camera and the frame rate of the tv have to be in sync, otherwise you end up with things that look like… well we’ve all seen youtube videos where people have tried it and it always looks terrible… jumpy, desaturated colors. Green out the screen or at least stick some visible tracking points on it and then composite the tv show footage over it. Hope that helps 🙂

Jimadamas says:

Me and my friends at lunch just sit around and talk and that usually inspires the concept for the video. Then we just brain storm on what we wanna do with it

2505BRIAN says:

I get my ideas in Spanish class.

GnomeClubProductions says:

Whoah man don’t use harsh words like fricking, also don’t forget you started this. Don’t reject original content cause it’s new and strange. People like you probably caused the holocaust. And what do you mean you post stuff? The fact that I use my channel as a way to get subscriptions and input ACTUAL ideas to their creators makes me a troll? I’m sorry that I’m not parroting the same thing every video. Indymogul always loved it’s community and you’re the plague fucking it up. so sir,fuck a horse

mrmrw56 says:

Hey can you make a Symbiote mask of Venom or Carnage from Spiderman

Korinth23 says:

Everyday things give me inspiration to make videos. Usually if the idea sticks enough, i elaborate on it and we usually begin thinking about how to film. What kind angles, the setting, stunts, etc…and it usually develops from there. Lots of our planning for a shot is done right before we even shoot the scene. gives us a chance to tweak and see how we can make it better. Might seem off, and there is a lot more we can improve on. but its been working for us.

KohrsFilm says:

The downside is when you’re not high, those same ideas are usually terrible.
