A fully comprehensive, award-winning training course that takes you from the very basics of filmmaking: what kit you need, how to approach the filming, identifying the story, what to shoot, how to film the interviews and how to get the best shots out of the camera. Specifically aimed at beginners or early professionals using a professional or semi-professional camcorder, this course helps filmmakers shooting for news, documentaries, corporates for online or mainstream network broadcast.
Based on the same course used by professional broadcasters around the world, organisations such as the BBC, Archant, Press Association, Al Jazeera and others, this course won the EDF Creative Media Award for its contribution to video journalism for BBC staff.
