In the Morning

After lunch

Shoot and Edit a Real DV Movie. Join the crew, as you learn about camera placement, DV lighting, running a hot set, and how to record great digital production sound. Once shooting is complete, it’s digital editing time. We’ll assemble our footage, while discovering the nuts and bolts of editing digital formats, comparing the various types of PC and Mac-based NLE equipment, audio capture, titling and special effects.
