ABOUT THIS MODULE

In modern productions, the camera is virtually always moving, but there exists a fine line between motivating the camera moves so they appear invisible, and jarring camera blocking.  Veteran television director Gil Bettman reveals inside techniques to create seamless, motivated camera moves from pre-production to the set itself.
 

IN THIS MODULE

  • 25:42 video
  • Q&A with director Jason Tomaric
  • Illustrated supporting content
 

LEARN

  • What constitutes an invisible camera move
  • How to determine camera blocking through the story
  • How to avoid bringing attention to dynamic moves
  • Inside tricks used by Hollywood directors to engage the audience without being distracting
The videos are a big leap forward for contemporary classroom videos, utilizing clean greenscreen, working professionals and 16:9. The film is well-paced and will be a great addition to classroom instruction. It is designed and constructed in ways both interesting and accessible to student filmmakers. I hope to utilize the material in my classroom!”
