Participants will also learn the filmmaking techniques to spin an interesting idea into a compelling visual narrative by creating and controlling the movie's look, sound, and pace. We’ll cover the basics of video cameras, best practices for audio and lighting setups, interviewing techniques, the importance of b-roll, and basic editing.
