Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video When to choose a multicamera production approach, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- Before we get into the how of multi-camera,…I think it's important that we talk about the why.…There's a lot of reasons to actually hold…the multi-camera production.…Now, Jim, I started with multi-camera productions.…I had a background in live news…and we always did them with multi-cam,…but then as I started moving out into production,…it seemed that film style or single camera productions…were more popular.…You've seen a recent switch lately, haven't you,…to multi-camera happening more and more often?…- Well, on all levels of production, there's more cameras…kicking in to shoots and it's for a lot of reasons that…usually have to do with some kind of restraint.…
These days, budgets can be smaller,…time constraints, and then other things…like space and schedules.…Anything that requires you to get maybe more…in a shorter period of time…or more with fewer opportunities to get coverage.…There's all kinds of compromises and constraints…that suggest the use of more than one camera…and also, cameras are more affordable now.…
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.
