Want to take your DSLR video further, in this course you will look at how to produce high quality video output using your camera. This course assumes participants will have an Introduction level knowledge and understanding of video hardware and editing. The first session will be dedicated to using the camera to capture video using applied shooting techniques. By considering panning, action shots, working with available light (indoor/outdoor) and creative exposure the participant will develop a sequence of short clips. In the second session the focus will shift to post-production where participants will consider best practice when working with video. By learning how to organize a video workflow, this one day session will cover working with codecs, editing techniques and how to output video.
