Open Call for Students for one-day Masterclass about filming movement and improving filming skill by award winning film directors Andrew Margetson and Daphne Lucker.
The focus is on filming movement - how exactly do you do that? And what technical equipment do you use to do so? Margetson and Lucker will talk from their own area of expertise and give tips & tricks on camera work, technical aspects and preparation. Participants will have the chance to work on their film skills through an assignment, supported by the two professionals, using and testing the professional equipment under the supervision of a Canon expert.
