Everyday you’ll be using the latest cameras, mics and editing equipment so that upon completion you have the skills to make your own movies. What you'll learn at DVBootCamp: How to plan and shoot your scenes, How to make the camera tell your stories, How to operate the latest, industry standard HDV cameras, How to cut to the beat on Apple’s Final Cut editing platform, And finally – How to get your work seen! Learn how to maximise your hit count on small screens all over the world! This is a highly practical and hands-on course. Students work with industry- standard HD-DV cameras and work on productions throughout the course, and edit on professional software, Final Cut, at our Mac Lab in Independent College.
