GV Expo Workshop: Planning, Crewing and Shooting Corporate, Nonfiction and Documentary Projects

Government Video Expo’s Intensive Production Workshops are concentrated, day-long conference sessions for video production professionals. On Tuesday, December 6th, GV Expo presents “Planning, Crewing and Shooting Corporate and Documentary Projects.”

This one-day workshop takes an in-depth look at the creation of corporate and documentary projects of any size from planning through production. Jem Schofield of theC47, who has 20 years of experience as a producer, director and cameraman, will take attendees through the process of planning and budgeting, as well as choosing the right crew and equipment for a specific project.

Jem will teach attendees how to determine a video project’s scope, and how to successfully navigate the demands of both client and crew. He will break down and discuss the specific pieces of equipment (cameras, lenses, lights, grip, rigs, audio gear, etc.) that are problem-solvers on productions with little to no crew—something that is very common in today’s production environment.

At the end of the class, attendees will receive proposal and budget templates to use in their own work.
