We will cover the essential selections of cameras, lenses, external monitors, follow focus units, fluid heads, support rigs, memory cards and hard drives. We will also discuss audio and constant lighting solutions. The similarities and differences of shooting still photographs and videos will be looked at as we explore resolution, file formats and file types. The business aspects of filmmaking will also be taught including filmmaking terms, shooting techniques and responsibilities of crewmembers.

“I arrived the first day with ZERO knowledge about video and was completely intimidated about jumping into the world of video. I had high hopes that your seminar would get me started, but was prepared to be disappointed if that didn’t happen. After two days in your seminar, I have to say, you exceeded my hopes and expectations. I walked away from the first day feeling like the seminar was worth every penny I had paid and was excited and looking forward to day two! I walked away feeling inspired and ready to START shooting video right away. Your enthusiasm, attention to detail, and care in creating a curriculum that was logical and easy to follow, along with your good humor as a teacher are a big part of making the seminar such a huge success.”
