Digital Movie Maker: Guidance From an Expert

This guide to producing professional-quality video helps students with their shooting, lighting and recording skills. It focuses on the real-world techniques of producer Bill Cote, a 25-year veteran of the television industry, who uses footage from a recently wrapped film to demonstrate proper equipment operation. Divided into four main chapters covering pre-production, camera work, lighting and audio recording, the program explains shooting schedules, shot lists, storyboards, camera exposure, shutter speed, lenses, filters, three-point lighting, time code and logs, shotgun mics, lapel mics, mic levels, audio ambience and much more.
