Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Determining camera requirements and coverage needs, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- With multiple cameras,…sometimes the sky's the limit.…If we all had our way,…we'd have 500 cameras…and a full sized crew to run it,…but it never really goes that easy.…There's always constraints, right, Jim?…- Yeah, I mean, go down the list.…It could be budget,…it could be physical space,…it could be resources, time...…Post-production schedules are short,…you know, and all kinds of things.…Finicky clients.…- Yeah, and we may say, "Oh, you know what?…"We wanted to do this whole thing in 4K."…But sometimes rather than shooting in 4K,…I might choose to have double the number of cameras,…or maybe some of those insert cameras…or specialty cameras don't exist in 4K.…

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.
