Filmmaking with DSLRs

WORKSHOP: Filmmaking with DSLR  

This will be a great opportunity for you to develop your skills as a filmmaker using a DSLR.

DSLRs have been used for all sorts of films and videos since the introduction of a video mode by Canon on the popular Canon 5DMKII DSLR. Other makers soon followed the idea by introducing video to their cameras too, notably Panasonic with their Lumix range (GH1, GH2 and GH3). Thus the potential for creating quality moving images is better than ever, given the fact that they allow for the use of different lenses, which in turn contributes to a more cinematic look. Some of those cameras are quite affordable, if compared to cinema cameras, and in being so they have greatly contributed to the accessibility of newcomers into filmmaking.

Of course the tools are important, but more important is to have an understanding  about the way they work and how to make the DSLR image look great in your film.

So in this workshop you will learn how to make the most of a DSLR when used for  video. Some of the topics will include:

  • Camera settings: How to set your DSLR for filmmaking
  • Lenses
  • Filters
  • Depth of Field
  • Using and maximizing available light
  • Using Reflectors
  • Using Sliders and dolly to convey movement
  • How to record good quality audio (recording audio separately)
  • Synchronizing audio to video
  • Microphone placement
  • Using a shotgun microphone & wireless microphone
  • How to boom properly

This will be a two days hands on workshop for anyone who wants to improve their skills with a DSLR that shoots video.

You should have your own DSLR & tripod, though not essential for this workshop.
