Hollywood Filmmaking & Television Directing Masterclass
Veteran film and television director Gil Bettman teaches you how to enhance the drama in a scene, heighten the action by using different lenses and how to move the camera in your next film and video production. The key here is that camera movement must be invisible. It should serve the story without calling attention to itself. Next, learn How To Move the Camera most effectively by systematically fulfilling Five Tasks when designing each moving master shot. Finally, learn how a master of visual design like Zemeckis customizes his application of these Five Tasks to the unique demands of each scene.
Learn How to Make a Low Budget Feature Film
This is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the making of a micro-budget (meaning REALISTIC BUDGET!) feature film. This is a look into how a professional near-no-budget film is made – with EVERY DETAIL available at your fingertips! FIB examines the EVERY detail (Over 18+ Hours) of the making of an independent movie called 2 Million Stupid Women (a comedy written by a woman!), which was made for only $100,000, made within the “Hollywood” system. If you want to make a feature, you need to take this course.
Studio Lighting: A Comparative Workshop
Two internationally renowned cinematographers Don McAlpine(Moulin Rouge!, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Romeo + Juliet) and Denis Lenoir A.S.C (Paris, je t'aime), light the same shots from the same dramatic script in this back-to-back workshop. They vividly demonstrate how differences in creative style and approach affect the impact and tone of the scene.
Location Lighting Masterclass
Location lighting, utilizing the equipment one truck can carry, is the most common task a young cinematographer will face. Geoff Burton (The Year, My Voice Broke, Flirting, Wide Sargasso Sea) condenses his many years of location lighting experience in this highly practical and useful workshop. Geoff’s approach emphasizes the maximum use of natural lighting resources (daylight and practicals) and imitating these sources with the light he adds. Geoff shows how to work with the limitations of location space and design (in this case three rooms of a cramped apartment) rather than against them. He demonstrates how fast stocks and fast work can be critical to success.
