Video Essentials for Photographers.

2-Day workshop that goes through all the tools that a photographer will need in order to make the transition from stills to motion video.

Dates: 2-day Workshop

Saturday 6/8 – 6/9 2013 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Code: SWC-2391-A

This workshop is designed for photographers who are making the transition into digital cinema. 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.

Recently PDN Magazine published what we consider the “13 Prod­ucts you need to add HD Video to your busi­ness.” (You might need the password “tutorials” to download the file.) The arti­cle is also avail­able on PDN’s May print issue. If you are new to Video, this list is a great place to start.

Prerequisite: SWC-1012, Macintosh Basics, or equivalent.

“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.”
