What you'll learn in this film production class:

The Digital AC 201 class builds on knowledge gained from the 101 class. This class will approach the curriculum from a professional camera prep point of view. You will learn to build camera packages according to the needs of production. Issues such as aspect ratio, frame rates, monitoring scenarios, and codecs will be discussed. Once these criteria have been covered, you will build a camera from the ground up into a complete package. Once built, each part of the system will be checked and tested. Internal and external recording scenarios will also be tested and discussed.

  • Planning for your shoot
  • Choosing aspect ratio, frame rate
  • Selecting camera accessories, power and support equipment
  • Available lens options, matteboxes, lens interface and support
  • How to test prime and zoom lenses
  • Signal distribution
  • On-board recorder and monitor options
  • Setting up a client monitor
  • Adjusting and saving user settings
  • Using digital media
