Learn to Film

Why would this course make you a better cinematographer ?

You'll learn how to best use your camera and camera's settings to film in any situation. 

You'll be able to use filming techniques to film in a variety of styles; cinematic, reportage, run 'n gun. 

You'll start thinking 'for the edit'; in other words you'll film in a way that leads to creative and storytelling editing, with a quick and efficient edit workflow. 

Most of all, you'll be able to walk into any scenario (wedding, model shoot, live event, promo, corporate) and be able to adapt and think quickly in order to get the best shots.

Cameras, settings, filming techniques (demonstrations and behind the scenes films), filming scenarios and how to deal with them


Practical sessions in groups/pairs (filming indoors and outdoors), Live editing, breakdown of clips and special effects short film (inc. behind the scenes clips),

Includes - handouts (camera settings, worksheets, quiz, kit list), links to useful clips.

Tutor Richard Wakefield runs a multi-award winning UK film production company, and for 10 years has been filming all over the world for an impressive client list; as well as giving talks for Canon UK, Adobe, IOV, SWPP and OFVM.  He films with both DSLR and mirror-less cameras, and edits using Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC.
