Low Budget Filmmaking
January 13-14, 2018
You’ve written your great film script, you have an idea for a doco and want to get started on it, your friends need a music clip, you want to make an award-winning short for a film festival or someone needs a corporate video for their business website? This 2 day course is for low budget filmmakers, media teachers and students wanting to improve production values in their films and is aimed at “one man band” or small crews with little or no budget. You’ll learn how to move your camera using a slider, handheld gimbal such as the DJI Osmo or Mobile and other devices that don't cost much.
Learn how to light expertly using a basic LED kit, improve sound by using an external audio recorder like the Tascam DR70D. Using iPhones, GoPro’s, DSLR's and Blackmagic cameras this hands-on, practical course will also introduce you to inexpensive, professional Final Cut Pro X editing.
There will be Blackmagic cameras available to shoot with at the course, but participants are encouraged to bring and use their own cameras (and tripod if you have one) to experiment with the equipment demonstrated at the course.
You will also get the latest information on low budget cameras, lighting and stabilisers. By the end of the weekend participants should be able to go out and shoot their own stories and make much better films with higher production values.
Conducted by Con Filippidis Cinematographer (25th Reich, Hostage to Fate, Desire).
