The Video Foundations Course is a no-nonsense approach to making a Video.
All lessons have been written, rewritten and edited with care. Instead of listening to a two-hour course where I say, "Uhhhh," "Um," and "Well" a lot, this course on How to Make a Video is packed into 40 minutes of straight-to-the-point instruction.
The Video Foundations Course includes the key principles of video making. This isn't a course about what camcorder to buy or what editing software to get- there is plenty of content with that angle on the web already. Instead, the course focuses on fundamentals, rules and how to break them for making a Video.
Here is the list of topics covered in this course:
Depth of Field
The 180 Degree Rule (and how to break it)
The Rule of Thirds
Vectorscopes, Histograms and Waveform Monitors
Progressive and Interlaced Scan
The appeal to knowing this information is to feel empowered by knowing what you can and can't get away with. I remember when I first started shooting videos, I would often look at my own footage and say, "Why does that look wrong?" It's taken me many years, but I feel comfortable now because I know these essential concepts. </p> </p>
