My course mate trying out the latest camera
I spent half a Saturday learning the skills of making a short video focusing on events coverage. There were 17 of us in this sponsored workshop. At the end of two lessons, we have to make a short video and upload to YouTube. I can't wait to see my product. :)
During our first lesson, our instructor Lionel Chok gave us an overview of filmmaking - from an idea and story to screening and sharing. It requires imagination and creativity. Those, I have. hehe.....
We learn to appreciate different elements that make a film. There was so much to learn and it was really interesting to learn what goes on behind the making of a film.
To my filmmaker friends, I shall be pestering you on the finer points of shooting a good film from now on. hehe.....
Shooting with a digital camera
During our first outdoor shoot, Lionel brought out the latest video camera to film us at work. A few course mates and I tried it. It is not very heavy although it looks bulky, but if I have to carry it on my shoulders for an hour, it would probably feel like a rock! :P
Lionel filming us at work during the outdoor shoot
I convinced the course organiser to loan (only for 2 weeks -_- ) me a video camera as I'm serious in producing a good film and plan to get a video camera. Meanwhile I have to start shooting because on the next lesson Lionel will teach us editing.
On Sunday, Chris and I spent a day outdoors, familiarising ourselves with the equipment and practise filming.
I'm going to be busier as I take on a new task and have new toys to play with. 加油! 加油!加油!
