Event description

Description

This hands-on workshop will encompass an overview of the tools used in solo documentary shooting: cinematography technique, existing light shooting and audio recording. Participants will learn how to prepare for a shoot, the essential equipment needed for the field, and how to "shoot for the editor." The workshop will also include a field practice exercise and group discussion of collected footage. Participants may choose to use their own cameras and equipment, but must know how to operate them prior to starting class. All equipment will be provided by Docs in Progress for use in the workshop.
