Camera & Sound Basics
New South Wales, Sydney
Ideally suited to those who have limited camera and sound recording experience, this course will introduce participants to techniques and practical skills that will enable them to produce high quality images and sound for documentary and drama - with an eye to great storytelling, the goal of all good filmmaking.
Led by experienced cinematographer Paul Warren (The Cup, Wrath), the workshop will cover how to ensure optimum picture and sound quality, scene coverage and how to tell a story with a compelling series of shots that make up scenes, and the laying out of those scenes as the pathway for the story.
The course will be made up of short screenings, discussions, demonstrations and most particularly - hands on shooting exercises for the participants. It will cover the practical considerations of the ‘freestyle’ filmmaking of one or two person crews, a distinctly different form of film making when compared to larger production teams and projects.
Cameras will be supplied by AFTRS.
