There is no longer the need for expensive, cumbersome equipment to shoot good film. Everyone with a Smartphone or Digital SLR Camera already has access to an HD video camera. Furthermore, many well-known filmmakers are now using Smartphone devices to make their own short movies, including 'Sin City' director Robert Rodriguez. There is even a channel on YouTube dedicated to this medium.
This practical course teaches you how to plan, shoot, edit and launch a short film using a Smartphone or DSLR as your main video camera. You will learn how to professionally plan your idea, compose and shoot HD quality footage, then edit the sequence to produce a finished film, ready to launch to your worldwide audience! As a student of Morley College you are also entitled to a discount on Adobe CC Software. Your tutor can advise you on how to apply for this.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
The class will be taught online at a specific course time each week. You will learn via a mix of presentation, active learning exercises, assignments, demonstrations, hand-outs, step-by-step instructions and group discussion.
One-to-one tuition will be given to help develop ideas and skills. Manageable project work will be assigned between and during classes to help you progress. The classes are informal and allow for question and answer sessions, technical advice and support depending on your needs. You will receive assessment and feedback on your progress. You will work as a class, individually and one to one with your tutor. All course material will be instantly accessible via the learning platform and the sessions may be recorded so that you may return to them later. Learners will be encouraged to use the class forums to engage with each other during the class and to support each other with project work.
