Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting a multicamera production on a budget, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- Tighter budgets are just a reality these days…with just about every production.…As such you've got to figure out how to do more with less.…So it's important that you try to cut cost where you can.…- As a producer you have an ideal situation,…where it's going to be perfect, it's going to be beautiful.…But then you realize, that's not in your budget.…So you need to start working with your crew…to find out how we can get this amazing vision…into something that we can afford.…- There are certain things that you have to cut…on a low-budget production.…Now, you have to make sure you have enough camera angles…but you're going have to start to simplify things.…
Locked-off cameras.…You're gonna make sure that you've got just what you need…to get the job done and not the extra bells and whistles.…- Is it more important to have a really big fancy set…or is it more important to have the coverage?…- Making the best of a moderately budgeted multi-camera shoot…again for me is planning in advance.…- You have to take your main goal…
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.
