Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Testing your gear in advance, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- As you may know now, preparation is a big thing for me,…and now that we've gotten ready the day before…for our shoot, we feel confident, we feel like we're ready…for any kind of problem that'll come our way,…and we feel generally good…about what we've done to get ready for the shoot.…So, that's enough of a reason for me.…You can throw anything at me…because I feel like I've done the work.…Even if I'm a little unsure.…There's plenty of things, live events, one-time events…where you just can't know,…but what you do know is if you've done everything you can…to get ready, that's all you could've done.…
You feel good about it.…So that kind of esoteric kind of feeling,…that feelgood thing, actually translates…into good performance,…and I think it's one of the most important aspects…of the shoot overall.…I mean, as important as the shoot itself.…The execution's important, but how you get there…is equally important.…Okay, one of the things to remember on the day of the shoot…is to have an intimate knowledge…of the camera gear beforehand.…
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.
