I posted the following question to Twitter last week to start a conversation with other video production professionals:
I'm always interested in learning more about the production industry, whether it be tech news, technique tips, or software tutorials.
I currently subscribe to a few e-newsletters with content pertaining to video production and post. Check these out and then leave me your recommendations in the Comments section:
Called "The Splash," each Pond5 newsletter contains great information for a wide range of readers - beginners to professionals. There's usually one article that pertains to gear, one about technique, and one about the industry in general. Plus there are links back to their extensive library of stock media assets. You will need to create a free Pond5 account before opting in to their newsletter.
In addition to the occasional free template that RocketStock offers in their emails, each issue also has great tutorials and production insights.
Rampant Design is also a great place to purchase media assets for your next video project and their newsletter will keep you up to date on all their latest offerings, including some great price mark-downs. But their newsletter is more than just a sales pitch. Each issue also contains tutorials on After Effects, DaVinci Resolve, and more.
Each issue of the DV newsletter is crammed full of articles to help you get your video production and post-production fix. Divided into three sections, this newsletter offers industry news, updates on the latest gear, and information about workshops, seminars and classes.
I came across the Ground Control newsletter when I was searching for new LUTs to add to my DaVinci Resolve database. The Ground Control site offers a few LUTs that you can download for free, if you submit your email address. I took the chance and typed in my email to download the LUT I wanted. I thought I would just unsubscribe later. However, I found the newsletter extremely informative. Each issue provides tutorials to help you improve your color correction and grading skills.
This e-newsletter provides links to a variety of content pertaining mainly to the art of color correction and grading. However, you will also find content about gear and industry insights. Just like the DV newsletter, it will take you some time to wade through each issue of the Tao Colorist. That's how much information is packed into each issue. But there's some great stuff in there.
I couldn't close out this post without mentioning the newsletter I curate and send out every Friday. Throughout the week I bookmark articles that I find interesting and worth sharing; content on the creative industry: marketing & advertising, video production, cinema, and filmmaking.
