Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Building the visual story, part of Video for Photographers: 1 Filmmaking Essentials.
- If you have shot a photo essay,…or worked on an editorial piece for a magazine,…or for a book project, or even a gallery show,…you already know what building a visual story means.…You're taking isolated elements, pictures,…shot sometimes in different places…and even from different projects,…and telling a coherent story.…Well video is the same.…You're taking clips, longer clips,…often from more than one camera,…and you're adding all these awesome elements,…like music and dialogue,…special effects and camera movement,…and we'll talk about all these things later on.…
If you can tell a great story with a still image,…you can tell a great story with a moving image.…
In this course, Emmy-winning filmmaker Eduardo Angel helps bridge the gap between photography and film—between still pictures and moving images—by showing what it takes to transition to video. The course covers the most essential video production techniques, from framing and lighting for continuous shots to directing the viewer's attention and incorporating camera movement and sound—Eduardo even provides a brief overview of his post-production workflow. By following along with Eduardo and his team, you'll understand why these concepts are so important and start applying them to your video and hybrid projects right away.
Look for the follow-up course, Video for Photographers 02: Filmmaking On Location, where Eduardo shows how these lessons apply to a real-world shoot. Coming soon to the lynda.com library!
