Introduction to Documentary Video Field Production


Regular Student: $280.00


Description



This course offers students the basic skills necessary to gather footage and negotiate technical problems in the field without compromising quality. Learn how to plan and organize a project, choose the best location for a shoot, work with available light, select the right microphone for the right situation, set proper audio levels, and “shoot in sequence.” We will also discuss proper framing and composition techniques and the advantages of hand-held vs. tripod shots. (20 hours/Beginning)

Simone Keith started her career as a broadcast videographer and editor. She has worked for UNC-TV and is currently on staff at North Carolina State University, where she received an Emmy for her work as videographer and editor of the show In The Garden with Bryce Lane.

Additional information:
Students may use any video camera available to them. However, a camera with an external microphone jack, a headphone jack, and the capacity for manual control of exposure and white balance will be ideal for this course. Video camera tripods (not photo camera ones) are also recommended. Please contact the instructor with any questions about equipment.
