DIY Filmmaking Tip of the day...

Have you ever felt that your lighting needed a more professional-looking diffusion but didn't want to shell out $100+ for a decent-sized softbox? we hear ya. There have been numerous times that we've looked online for necessary softbox equipment and gagged. $150.00 for one medium-sized set?? It's ridiculous. Especially since some of the softboxes look easy enough for a 5th grader to make. Well-turns out they are. Below is a link to a website that shows yo how to make large softboxes by hand with only a few items( umbrella, aluminum tape, etc.) It's not too difficult of a build, but I'd say yourself an afternoon to do it. A small price to pay for saving hundreds in the long run.
