Have you ever dreamed of having your own Hunting show or filming your own hunts?
DrivenTV Producer Pat Reeve to bring to you one of the most informative and hands on training courses for outdoor videographers ever. This fast-passed hands-on training will give you the skills and the knowledge to bring you one-step closer to your dream.
This three day course starts off going over the camera terminology and basic functions of the camera. You will learn about the importance of a good audio set up and the different tricks to create different lighting effects.
Then you'll head outdoors to stations set up based on different outdoor filming situations.
Once you visit each station your have hands-on time with the different cameras practicing the techniques that you learned earlier that day.
You'll then head back to the classroom for lesson on basic video editing. You'll learn how to import your video from your camera and edit/cut video clips. You will also learn how to add music, sound effects and transitions to your movie. Then you will learn how to export your video to the web or burn it to a dvd.
After your editing class you will have hands-on time with the video cameras to practice different techniques that you have learned throughout the day. Of course, the staff will be there to answer any questions you have or to go over different techniques again.
The entire second day is all taught by Pat Reeve from DrivenTV. He walks you through his personal story on how he got to be the award-winning producer that he is now. He reveals tips and lessons that have taken him years to learn. He will walk you through video clips and explain exactly the process he used to film. (*Pat Reeve's class will be on the first day of the March school, and the second day of the August school)
On the third day, the Campbell Cameras staff will walk you through basic production elements needed for a successfully filmed hunt. They will talk about creating yourself as a character, developing story lines and filming recreates. They will have in-depth video analysis of top hunting shows as well as top tv shows in other genres.
Any time that there is a break during the day, the students are more than welcome to get their hands on the different cameras and practice, practice, PRACTICE!
This is a basic videography class, if you feel like you are more advance or if you have previously taken this course than we suggest looking into the producer class or editing class.
