Presented by Mary Daniel | The second of a two-part set of participatory workshops designed to give beginners basic technical competency with shooting reasonably professional-feeling video.
Building on the skills and principles covered in Part One, Part Two develops your understanding of how to shoot technically sound — with practice, even professional quality– footage in situations (interviews, events, performances…) where artificial light dominates and/or where sync-sound is involved. The morning session covers the need-to-know fundamentals of how to set exposures and audio levels manually and—because poor audio is a guaranteed mark of amateurism—of working with external microphones.
In the afternoon participants will apply the principles learned in the morning to particular shooting situations.
This workshop is part of the Business Skills for Growth workshop series, an Artscape Launchpad initiative, which offers opportunities to develop creative entrepreneurship and business skills for the creative and cultural sector.

To help maintain community safety and contain the spread of COVID-19, Artscape has temporarily closed its community cultural hub facilities to the public and cancelled all Artscape-led in-person programming. We are monitoring public health and government recommendations regarding the reopening of non-essential businesses and public gatherings to guide our decision on a re-opening date.
Meanwhile, we welcome you to attend our free virtual programming through Launchpad Learning Online. See What’s On.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!
While numerous professional associations have created their own COVID-19 resource guides, Artscape’s compilation focuses on a collection of financial resources and supports to help creatives across all of our communities navigate this situation.
