Introduction

Using the Sony Z7 camcorder you will direct and shoot inserts and sequences that can be used as broadcast material. The course is based around hands on group work and working alone with your own Z7 in a variety of different workshops and scenarios.
You will get to take home all your footage at the end of the course.

Who is it for?

Those that are confident with using the Sony Z7 (or similar) and want to progress towards actual programme making.

People that have no directing experience and wish to learn how to capture and present stories so that they can be effectively edited together.

This course is popular with Video Journalists.

What Skills will I Learn?

You will have the confidence to plan and shoot sequences and inserts that can be successfully edited together to form a broadcast quality programme.
Basic sound recording will be covered which you will put into practice throughout the course using various types of microphones, but this is not a full sound course.
