Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Additional resources, part of Video for Photographers: 1 Filmmaking Essentials.
- It is very easy to get lost within the…vast amount of technical information available,…and we can read inspirational books…or watch tutorials for months…without actually shooting a single frame.…The proper balance of both approaches…is the key to success.…And working with other people usually…makes things easier and better.…Technology changes very quickly,…but there are two trends…that never seem to change.…Time and money are indirectly proportional,…and we never seem to have enough of either one.…
And we are constantly being asked to do more,…and faster than ever before.…The best way to learn how to shoot video…is by shooting video.…Go watch movies, documentaries, and tutorials,…but also read trade magazines,…attend workshops and tradeshows,…and talk to other people who share…the same interests as you.…And, of course, check out our follow up course…where we take all these concepts…and show you how to use them…on a real location shoot…at a puteequanay in Central Oregon.…
Thank you so much for watching.…
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!
