The Impactful Film: Mastering Video Techniques to Create Unique, Short Films FULL
Limited Capacity full

Do you want to engage an audience and hold their attention while you take them through a short story about your family? Do you want to learn how to utilize storytelling and be able to get your point across in less than 2 minutes? Then this class is for you! While family films are great and such keepsakes, Catherine wants to teach and challenge you to be able to come up with a narrative and theme to shoot effectively and to tell a story in a 2 minute or less film. Catherine will take you step by step from pre-production to execution while shooting along with you in a lifestyle room setting. She will take you through her process on how to cut the "filler" and keep your film fast-moving and audience engaged. Join Catherine in experimenting and videoing with unique camera angles, and learn the process of her shooting style and how she uses these unique camera angles to enhance her storytelling. During the shoot, Catherine will explain basic rules of composition, light and the importance of not only multiple takes, but multiple angles. She will also go over basic camera movements that work with your story and not distract. Not only does this process help shooting be successful, it makes editing your sequence a breeze.
Lens preference: A medium prime (35-50mm) or a standard zoom (24-70mm) is preferred. Some basic experience in shooting video and stabilizing your camera is helpful, however the instructor will go over basic stabilization techniques for beginners.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to storyboard and get prepared to film their own narrative/theme
