Filmmaking For Photographers: 5-day Workshop

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

My good friend Ollie Dale sent me this the other day. He's going to be doing a couple of seminars aimed at photographers who want to learn filmmaking.

He's taking an interesting tack on it that I've not seen. He's going to indigogo to try to raise the funds. That way he knows he'll have commitment from the participants. I've been involved in setting up training before and it is scary not knowing if you're going to be able to cover your costs, so this is indeed an interesting way to go after it.

So have a look. Ollie's a great guy (tho I've never seen him teach but I suspect he's good at it :) )

He's doing a full week – which is pretty damn impressive with lots of hands on.

There's a lot to cover too! Oh, and there's one session planned for San Francisco and one in Australia.

Filmmaking For Photographers: 5-day Workshop – SFO

 

AUGUST 24-28, SAN FRANCISCO, CA.

Via Indiegogo:

Designed for Photographers, this workshop will introduce you to the world of filmmaking.

Photography skills include composition and lighting, so for photographers some elements of filmmaking will come easily, but it's not as simple as switching your DSLR to Video Mode…

My own journey into filmmaking was from a world of corporate photography, and the learning curve was steep. Moments are no longer measured in fractions of a second, but rather in minutes, from multiple angles, with a demand for good sound and the threat of changing light.

Come spend a week in the beautiful Presidio in San Francisco, shooting, learning, trying gear and immersing yourself in a whole new world!

We'll cover how to shoot family moments, interviews, events and both scripted and unscripted videos. You'll try single- and multiple-camera set-ups, and learn about how gear can add to your storytelling – microphones, constant lights, jibs, dollies, cranes, quadcopters, monitors and more.

There'll also be an opportunity for you to experience what it's like to be on set working with a crew, cast and an exuberant and demanding Director…

And finally, you'll marvel at the wonderment of story boards, how easy they are to create, and how vital they are when filming!
