· Sony Z1 Shooting and Sound
Modern technology… and budget constraints, have meant self shooting has become increasingly prevalent in TV.
It’s one of the most difficult things to do right – making sure every shot is technically correct, the sound is audible, the sequence is cuttable and the contributors are produced, but a lot of people still call themselves shooting APs when they are nothing of the sort.
A shooting AP combines the roles of producer, director, production coordinator, camera operator and sound recordist.
Getting the best out of contributors, shooting “internal sequence” cutaways, making sure shots are in focus and correctly exposed, and getting the sound right so it isn’t peaking is no easy matter.
It’s multiskilling in the extreme, but if you get it right it is extremely rewarding. You are making a programme or part of a programme that is all yours!
This course shows you how to self shoot properly – not just the technical side of things, but also how to create nice sequences, and not upset the editor because you don’t get enough cutaways!
Using proper broadcast equipment, including a Z1 camera, tripod, radio mics and hand mics, you get hands on guidance, and the opportunity to shoot your own material, in a variety of different scenarios.
