Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching the course, part of Premiere Pro Guru: Multi-Camera Video Editing.
Now, this course focuses on the post production aspects, of working with multi camera source material. It's useful if you've been on a multi camera shoot or if you've been on other shoots in the past, to really understand the production side. If you are interested in the production side, be sure to check out the DSLR Video Tips series. Where some of the footage we're going to work with today, actually came from. And you could explore the production side or the actual shooting of the footage. Now beyond that you don't need to be a great shooter to be a great editor. But I will reference some things that were happening in the field that benefit post-production.
One of the things that's extremely important in multi-camera video projects, is that the editor and the director communicate with each other. And that good communication happens between all parties. You want to make sure that all the cameras are synced up. That a strategy is being used in the field, and that everything fits together. So, from this point of view, we're only focusing on the back half. But, if you'd like to understand the front half of multi-camera production a bit more, just check out the DSLR Video Tips series.
