The quality of work you can produce is remarkable, and easily up to the standards of social media, commercial, and brand video work, and documentary and narrative film work. Professional cinematographers design the look, color, lighting, and framing of every single shot in a film. This course will cover the same techniques, unleashing and enhancing the creative filmmaking powers in our smartphones. We’ll learn to control exposure, frame rate, color temperature, depth of field, camera motion, ambient lighting, and audio. This course is suitable for aspiring filmmakers, entrepreneurs, social media content creators, and family storytellers. | Lecture + Q&A.
