I’ve run through the basic After Effects tutorials more than a few times on Video Copilot and frequent Hurlbut Visuals on a regular basis. I’ll be checking out the rest of the list very soon, and am especially looking forward to playing around in the Virtual Lighting Studio to test out some lighting setups I’ve come across recently.

Film Riot is also very modest to have not put their own YouTube channel on this list. I’ve followed Ryan and his Film Riot family since their start some five years ago and they live consistently in my top three resources for entertainment and filmmaker knowledge. If you haven’t seen Film Riot or any of the other shows Ryan (Triune Films) produces, I highly recommend taking a look and clicking that subscribe button on Film Riot’s YouTube Channel.

What are some of your favorite filmmaker resources? Share them below and they might find their way to a Hawaii Shoots resources page in the near future.
