Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Advice while recording, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- Okay, so it's the day of the shoot,…and all the elements have come together,…and it's really happening.…So where do you put your head?…Where do you put yourself in the big mix of things?…And I think you split your time and your head…between the awareness of your individual job…and the big picture.…I think it's really important to be able to…switch back and forth…because you've been hired to do a specific task,…whether it's at the high end,…directing or director of photography,…or you're just doing a smaller job.…
I won't say less important, like sound mixer…or camera operator.…So you have your job, you have your specific task,…and usually that involves a combination of technical…and creative expertise, or waded from one to the other.…So you want to make sure you got that covered,…because that's why you're really there.…On the other hand, you want to be aware…of the rest of the team.…You want to be aware of what they're doing…because it does impact you.…These complicated, long shoots…can be a sap of your energy.…
You'll learn essential preproduction strategies to get the right gear and place it in the right position. You'll also learn techniques for syncing the visuals and audio captured from each camera. Rich and James offer advice for directors running shoots in the field, as well as strategies for crew members who are building sets and logging footage. Finally, in chapters 7 and 8, they share techniques for multicamera postproduction with Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro. In these chapters, you'll learn how to create multicam clips, apply color correction, color match angles, switch between angles, and refine and master your edit.
