LET'S BEGIN THE JOURNEY
An idea retained in the mind, which could be on any relevant topic and translated in the form of advertizement, drama, interview, documentary, news report, tutorial, instructional video manual, preaching, music video, digital animation film, etc. Ensure your concept is useful, of great benefit and relevant to peoples' need.
Paper Work and the development of Storyboard.
At this point, pen down your concept on paper as a story in chronological sequence. Then, create a storyboard by crafting your story piece in graphics. Storyboard is important to cameramen, it gives them the picture of what the movie director and the director of photography have in mind. In a storyboard are various camera shots (long shot, medium shot, close shot, extreme shot, overhead shot, etc.). The details of diver scenerio are available on storyboard. Movie production task becomes very easy with storyboard.
Work at locations.
The work at locations require some techniques. A camera crew will have to draw up a schedule for the task: date, time, place and shooting plan; this will also include makeup team, hair designer, costumes and needed props.
Choice of Camera and Settings.
The technology of modern flat panel television has brought in large frame works like 1080p, 4k, 6k, 8k and 12k screen sizes. Older technology is obsolete. It displays blurnt images on flat panel television. So, we recommend HD Camera or higher with 1080p or 4k frame size settings, progressive scan and widerscreen display. Remember to select an appropriate television system as NTSC, PAL OR SCAM.
Check out the list of recommended digital camera for film makers: Sony A7S III (overall best choice and expensive), Sony AX700 (4k camcorder), Sony RX100 VII (best for travellers), Blackmagic PCC4k (budget cinema camera), Fujifilm X-T4 (hybrid still/video camera), Nikon D780 (best DSLR), and GoPro Hero9 Black (action camera). These are recommended as at the time of this training.
