What’s New in Filmmaking Technology, 2022

1. Drones


Drones are becoming increasingly popular for capturing aerial shots. They offer a unique perspective that can really add production value to a film.

Drones are quickly becoming a staple in filmmaking. Their versatility and relatively low cost make them a go-to choice for many filmmakers. Drones can be used for a wide variety of shots, from sweeping aerial shots to tight close-ups.

One of the biggest advantages of using drones for filmmaking is that they give filmmakers a lot of control. Drones can be flown very close to the ground or up high for a birds-eye view. They can also be equipped with a variety of cameras, including high-definition and 4K cameras.

Another advantage of drones is that they can be used in places that are difficult or impossible for traditional cameras to go. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities for filmmakers. Drones can get shots that would otherwise be impossible, which can really add a lot of production value to a film.

2. 360-degree cameras

360-degree cameras

360-degree cameras are becoming more and more popular as they offer viewers a completely immersive experience. This type of camera is perfect for capturing action scenes or landscapes.

There’s a new player in town when it comes to filmmaking and that player is the 360-degree camera. These cameras are designed to capture an entire scene in one shot and the results are pretty amazing.

With a 360-degree camera, filmmakers can capture a scene from every angle without having to move the camera. This means that you can get some really creative shots that wouldn’t be possible with a traditional camera.

360-degree cameras are also great for capturing action scenes. With a traditional camera, you might miss some of the action if it’s happening outside of the frame. But with a 360-degree camera, you can capture it all.

If you’re looking to add some new and exciting shots to your film, then a 360-degree camera is a great option.

3. Virtual reality

Virtual reality

Virtual reality is becoming more and more realistic and is being used more and more in filmmaking. This technology can transport viewers into the film, making them feel like they are truly part of the action.

Virtual reality (VR) is a game-changing technology that is quickly gaining popularity in the filmmaking industry. VR allows filmmakers to create immersive, realistic environments that can be used to shoot scenes for movies, TV shows, and video games.

 VR technology has been used to create some of the most realistic and harrowing scenes in recent memory. For example, the critically acclaimed film “The Revenant” used VR to shoot a key scene in which the main character is mauled by a bear. The use of VR made the scene more realistic and harrowing, and it earned the film an Academy Award for Best Picture.

VR is also being used to create entire films. For example, the upcoming film “Avengers: Infinity War” will be shot entirely in VR. This will allow viewers to feel as if they are inside the film, and it will give them a whole new way to experience the movie.

4. Augmented reality

Augmented reality

Augmented reality is another type of technology that is being used more and more in filmmaking. This allows filmmakers to add computer-generated images to real-world footage, making it seem like the two are seamlessly integrated.

Augmented reality has been used in filmmaking for years, but its potential is only now being realized. By layering digital information on top of the real world, filmmakers can create immersive, interactive experiences that was once impossible.

AR can be used for a variety of purposes, from creating special effects to adding interactivity to a scene. For example, in the film “Iron Man 3,” AR was used to create the iconic HUD that Tony Stark sees. This allowed the filmmakers to not only create a realistic looking HUD, but also add in extra information that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye.

AR can also be used to create interactive experiences. In the film “Ready Player One,” AR was used to create a virtual world that the characters could interact with. This allowed the filmmakers to create a fully realized world that the audience could explore along with the characters.

As AR technology continues to develop, we can only imagine the new and innovative ways that it will be used in filmmaking.
