Video Self-Shooting. Video excellence on your own
Are you an indie producer, shooter and work mostly on your own?
Are you working on small budgets that means hiring a crew is not possible?
Are you a one-man crew, doing almost everything yourself?
Do you have a wish to create great YouTube content, but this means that you have to do this on your own?
Do you want to improve the quality of your videos, to the point where your audience can't get enough?
Then you have come to the right place.
I like to think of myself as one of the world's most experienced self-shooters. Because with basic equipment, I have made several TV documentaries that have been broadcast on TV networks, all by myself. And I can teach you how to do that.
I've been a broadcast professional for 37 years. And much of what I have done, particularly recently, has been shot on ordinary equipment, by myself, with me as presenter. How does one do that? I even once did a single-crew, three camera shoot! Was that a world first?
Some of the best work I have done, I've been alone in a remote environment, shooting my TV series. And I use ordinary HD video equipment. Because budgets are tight, there isn't the cash to blow on the very best gear. But that doesn't matter. Because basic equipment is better suited to the one-person shoot.
This course will help you with:
Discipline while shooting,
Staying light-weight and portable,
Getting great audio, as well as video,
Confidence building and new ideas.
So many independent producers are lonely people. When I edited for TV commercials, we used to call ourselves mushrooms-we stayed in a dark room and were fed bullsh*t. Like this, indie video producers work in an environment that cuts us off from humanity, Especially in the edit phase. b the shooting can be like that too. There is so much to think about, and when we are being paid for the work, so much at stake also.
