Course Description: In this hands-on, two-day Videography training class, you can work on the technical and creative side of DSLR video (or any other video camera you may have!). You will learn from an industry expert how to go from pre-production to post-production while working hands-on with real equipment and scenarios. We will start with learning how to control the camera, picking your locations, and framing your shots. You will then get hands-on practice capturing great footage using your video-capable DSLR (or any other video camera you may have). The end file will be optimized for web and digital delivery.

Prerequisites: No prior knowledge of videography is required. Users with experience in multimedia applications who are moving toward integrating video will gain from taking ThinkBIG’s course. It is required that students bring in their own camera, camera user manual, and storage device (e.g. SD Card) or transfer cable to class. Students must have a good working knowledge of computers, operating systems, using a mouse, keyboard, standard menus and commands.

Job Roles That Use Videography Fundamentals:
Multimedia Professional and eLearning Developers that are New to Production
