TRICKS FOR FAKING IT—Making Amateur Video Look Professional:

#1 Light your scene as best you can.
#2 Use sunlight, especially during the golden hour.
#3 Color correction can salvage dark or poorly white balanced shots.
#4 Find or build a camera stabilizer—maybe a DIY string tripod.
#5 Use a stabilization effect or slow motion to smooth a shaky shot.
#6 High resolution video can be cropped to conceal jump cuts.
#7 Zoom in a kit lens to maximize bokeh (shallow depth of field).
#8 When using on-camera audio, shoot lots of close-ups.
#9 Apply a noise-reducing filter to salvage quiet audio.
#10 Re-record dialogue (ADR “automated dialogue replacement”)

    Disney did a whole lot better with Star Wars than George Lucas (excluding the original 3). Episodes I, II and III were genuinely some of the worst movies i have ever seen. George stopped taking it seriously 🙁
