Camera Class schedule

In videography courses the use of the camera is neglected, this series of classes will give you skills if you complete the series (in order) which most videographers never recieve. Most of the courses are intent on giving you the skills to do everything. Cover all the bases, This course when I finish the entire set of lessons will also attempt to cover it all, but rather than emphasis the other aspects - I believe camera work is the key to successful production. The simplest act of slowly zooming or smoothly panning can take a long time to really master. These lessons will expose you to as many different aspects of camera work as possible, in real situations and some fun ones where you can truly experiment.

The further you go with the various lessons, the more I want you to use the experience you have gained. All of these lessons are intended to help you become reactive with the camera. It will take many times of shooting a particular type of event before you really become intuitive.

You are expected to have studied scripting and writing, lighting and audio before you go through this series of classes. You do not have to consider yourself a master of any of them, but you will be using these skills in some manner in each of the following camera classes.

Yes there will be series of classes on other aspects of production, which are still being designed, this series will give you enough to work on for the next series of weeks or months. Each lesson could easily be extended over one months period. If this much time were used your skills would be finely honed. However, each lesson can be completed in one weeks time
