Two-Day Workshop: Filmmaking on a Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR
This two-day course gives an overview of DSLR and larger sensor Canon cameras for video and filmmaking, detailing in particular the Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR camera.
Through a series of modules, you will learn how to shoot video with the EOS 7D Mark II, how to deal with sound, lighting and movement. You will look at different styles of shooting, comparing treatment types and discussing the advantages and disadvantages of directed filmmaking against more ‘organic’, ‘run-and-gun’ style filmmaking.
You will also look at story structure, how the ultimate narrative of the film is achieved through editing techniques, and how that itself should inform how we shoot. You will look at what qualities make a film compulsive and go viral and how you can incorporate those techniques in your shooting.
More than anything else this is a two-day shot-in-the-arm for DSLR moviemakers, useful to both beginners and those already shooting with a 7D, who want to improve their skills or make better films.
Places on this workshop are strictly limited. If you already own a Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR please do bring it with you, but Canon are kindly supplying a number of cameras which participants can use on the course.
