1 STUDENTS ENROLLED

    A fully comprehensive, award-winning training course that takes you from the very basics of filmmaking: what kit you need, how to approach the filming, identifying the story, what to shoot, how to film the interviews and how to get the best shots out of the camera. Specifically aimed at beginners or early professionals using a professional or semi-professional camcorder, this course helps filmmakers shooting for news, documentaries, corporates for online or mainstream network broadcast.

     

    Delivered by Dean Arnett – a principle trainer and filmmaker at the BBC for over 20 years and whose experience now extends to training work with Canon at the Frontline Club and the BFI – this course contains over 70 seperate video modules totalling over seven hours of intensive training in the nitty gritty of making outstanding films.
    Based on the same course used by professional broadcasters around the world, organisations such as the BBC, Archant, Press Association, Al Jazeera and others, this course won the EDF Creative Media Award for its contribution to video journalism for BBC staff.

    Course outcome: To bring any self-shooter, video journalist, self-shoot producer or shoot-edit cameraman to a level of professionalism that would make them employable by any mainstream global broadcaster.
