Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Directing advice, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- I'd like to share some directing advise with you.…Now, directing is very much a matter of opinion,…and you're going to have to have your own personal style.…But, I've directed live TV for many years,…and I have to share a couple of key tenets with you.…First off, you have to realize that you literally…are the captain of the ship.…You need to be in charge.…If you don't have that type of personality,…you need to find a way to maintain control.…Now, with that, any tension you add is going to go ahead…and ripple throughout the entire production.…
You need to find a way to stay calm but keep in control.…And I got to tell you, it can be pretty frustrating.…You start slipping off schedule and everyone on set…is just chattering and cracking jokes…and they're not moving as fast as you want,…the talent starts to drift,…- Quiet on set for a moment please.…- And one of the things you're going to want to do…is snap at the crew.…But you do that, and you lose people.…What becomes important is that you have to find a way…to use inflection in your voice to communicate things.…
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.
