- If you're watching this course,…I'm pretty sure you already own…a camera that shoots video.…I have great news for you.…That's all you need to get started.…Eventually, you will need some…camera movement tools,…continuous lights,…something to record sound,…and a few more accessories.…Actually, we take all these tools on location…on our follow up course.…But please know that you don't…need to own everything.…I don't own everything.…I like to keep my overhead very low…by renting some of these tools.…
When I was getting started with video,…a great cinematographer told me something amazing.…If you can shoot and edit something on your cell phone,…you are a true storyteller.…And at the end of the day,…it's all about the story.…
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!
