Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Practical Motion Background Workshop.
So what do you need to know before we begin?…Well, not much. First off, open up your mind and be prepared to have fun.…We're just going to play with cameras today.…It doesn't matter what equipment you have; just about anything will work…for these techniques.…We're going to use everyday items that can gather up for around your studio or…your house, and a camera.…Now, if you have a DSLR or something with a wider aperture that's capable of…shallow depth of field, that's going to go a long way, but you can make just…about any piece of equipment work for the techniques today.…
Also, even if you don't have access to production equipment, I'll let you get…hands-on with some of the files that we shoot today during the class.…You could then learn at least how to do the postproduction technique and put it all together.…I do highly encourage you to watch this class from beginning to end in order.…That's because this is a very linear process, and I'm going to walk you through…how all the pieces work.…So, hang in there. Don't jump ahead as we go through some of the ground material.…
