Workshop: Shooting for the edit with Isobel Williams
Shooting for the edit is a short course for anyone who's had no (or only limited) experience in an edit suite, but nonetheless would like to know how to shoot a sequence that will provide an editor with everything he or she needs to build a scene.
This is not a technical course but it is very practical! It's aimed any anyone who might be asked to go out and shoot something on their own, on the hoof (we've all had to do it) and should hopefully give you a toolkit to make sure you get the shots you need, and a bit of confidence to do the job properly! Would suit APs, researchers, DV Directors who rarely get the chance to edit their own material.
Who it's for
The workshop is aimed at APs, researchers and DV directors who may be required to shoot but haven’t much (or any) experience in an edit.
This one-hour practical course will have limited places allocated by application. It will, however, run on multiple dates so please apply for the session(s) that best suit your schedule.
Date options (all sessions 3-4.30pm):
Tuesday 6th October
Wednesday 7th October
