Course Description

Most perceived barriers to professional-quality video production don't really exist. You can produce high-quality work even with limited financial resources. In the Field Production workshop, we focus on ease, affordability and resourcefulness in professional-quality video production.

The Field Production Workshop takes students into the process of cinematography, lighting and audio. With a focus on the manual controls available through larger 3-chip DV cameras, such as the Sony Z5U, this class is intended for individuals who either already have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of video production or who have never even touched a camera before!
