Thinking and Shooting in Motion - Finding a Business Model That Works for You
With the proliferation of electronic mobile devices we as a culture are changing the way we communicate and receive information. We have access to information wherever and whenever we want it. As photographers who shoot with cameras capable of shooting video, coupled with a greater demand for multiple mediums, we need to understand that there is a lot more to video than switching the mode on the camera.
Still images capture moments in time. Video captures time in motion. One thinks and shoots differently, depending on the medium used to capture the story and the platform used to deliver the visual message. Depending on the role you intend to play in video production; Producer, Director, Director of Photography etc., will depend on what business model will work for you and keep you in business.
Gail will talk about:
- The elements of video production - the collaborative effort
- How to shoot video NOT like a photographer
- Telling the story in motion
- Interview tips/Audio
- Business tips and paperwork in the "hybrid" world
- Where do you fit in?
