Filmmaking for Photographers
Saturday, January 28, 2017
You already have a grip on photography—you've mastered the exposure triangle, the rule of thirds, maybe a few Photoshop tricks, and you have some successful shoots under your belt. But there on your camera, just a dial turn away, is a tantalizing world, begging to be unlocked: DSLR filmmaking. Your camera may capture video, but that doesn't make you a filmmaker. But ... could you be?
I started my career in photography and graphic design, and what I realized very quickly was that these skills I already had—composing a frame, manipulating shadow and light, telling a story—made a transition into filmmaking very easy and very natural. Now, after many fruitful years in film—including the chance to shoot and direct the world's first documentary on the Maker Movement (shot on Canon 5D Mark II)—I want to pass on what I've learned to the thriving photographic community in Abilene, Texas.
Join me Saturday, January 28, 2017 for an all-day dive into the world of filmmaking. We'll focus on documentary shooting, but the skills and principles you'll learn will apply to any and every film project you'll take on. Everyone who registers will also be added to a new private filmmakers' Facebook group, to provide an ongoing resource for those with more experience to help those with less, as we learn and grow together.
