Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating the location, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- Jim, one of the things I admire about your approach…to production is that you always show up early to a shoot.…In fact, you're really big on location scouts.…But even if that's not a possibility,…you get there, you walk around.…You're very observant.…And I think that really comes in handy because…when you walk into a new location,…particularly for multi-cam,…there can be some challenges.…- Well, multi-cam shoots means multiple problems.…So, you want to be able to have as much time…to build confidence in yourself and in the shoot…as you can.…
So, earlier is better.…You don't want to over do it because usually…you may not be compensated for all this extra time.…But you want to feel prepared.…The more prep you do,…the better off the shoot's going to go.…It's just going to go better.…- One of the things I like to say is…try to get that location scout under your belt.…For example, lot of times I work on concerts…and even if I can't bring a full crew out,…I could do a location scout.…Maybe it's as simple as going to an evening concert…
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.
