Two-Day Workshop: Filmmaking on a Canon EOS C100 Mark II
This two-day course gives an overview of the Canon EOS C100 Mark II camera and is particularly focused on anyone wanting to self-shoot magazine-style films, web docs or corporate videos.
Through a series of modules, you will learn how to shoot video with the EOS C100 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.
We will explore structuring a magazine-style shoot and a corporate shoot, finding the message and discussing how to deal with corporate clients and what contracts or arrangements we should draw up.
You will also look at story structure, how the ultimate narrative of the film is achieved through editing techniques, and how that narrative 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 independent videographers, useful to both beginners and those already shooting with an EOS C100 Mark II, or similar type cameras, who want to improve their skills or make better films. It is also ideal for anyone wanting to take the next step on from DSLR filmmaking.
Places on this workshop are strictly limited. If you already own a Canon EOS C100 Mark II please do bring it with you, but Canon are kindly supplying a number of cameras which participants can use on the course.
