Filmmaking on camcorders and interchangeable lens cameras has become a very niche market. There are important camera settings to consider, accessories to connect, tripods, monitors, cages and gadgets to attach, as well as microphones, lighting, and more – not to mention the importance of composition and content!
Our two-part Intro to Filmmaking course helps open doors to the filmmaking process by discussing all of these elements and more. Where our Video for Photographers class covers mostly the basics of settings, this course is designed as a survey of all those things required in making a cinematic film. Whether you’re looking to break into filming weddings, creating music videos, or even documentaries, this course will show you everything you need to get started.
In our first session, we’ll cover basic settings, initial camera setup (including resolution, frame rates, and codecs), and basic composition & cinematography. In-between the two sessions will be an assignment to test out what we learned in week one. In our second session, we’ll dive into refining our product by discussing lighting, external audio, focusing, rigs, monitors, and more.
These classes are an excellent way to get started in the world of filmmaking!
