Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Beginning your production, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- When I get ready for a multi-camera shoot,…there's a lot of different things that go through my mind.…The first is, I really want to understand…the tone of the production.…It's important, during a multi-camera production,…that you bring that sense of energy to it.…But, what's the energy supposed to be?…- Is it something that's going to be…activity-based, or fairly standard,…stable in one place?…- Is this a somber event, is it jovial, is it a comedy?…Is this a concert?…That may even affect things like,…if the cameras are going to move,…or if they're locked-off shots.…
So, really understanding the genre…and sort of the pacing or feel,…that's something that's pretty important right away.…- There's a couple questions I always start asking myself…before I start producing a multi-camera shoot.…One, location.…Are we going to be in a studio?…Are we going to be in a controlled environment?…Are we going to be in the field somewhere…where we don't have a lot of control on audio?…Because that might be somewhere…where you might need to spend more resources…
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. By the end of the course, you'll have a thorough start-to-finish understanding of the multicamera production process.
