Building a Sequence

Building a Sequence

Taught by Journalist Heather Aveson, this class will teach producers how to use the action of a scene to create a story.

Thursday, August 3, 2017 - 6:00pm

Establishing shots, close-ups, medium shots, hands that enter and exit the frame, pans, how do these different visual devices work together smoothly to create narrative?
The class will go over the fundamental building blocks of a sequence and how they work together and will then use provided footage to edit together sequences in class.
This practice will help with both editing and shooting, as when you are in the field next time you will be more aware of the sort of imagery you need to obtain for a successful piece.

3 sessions - Thursdays - August 3rd, 10th, & 17th - 6-8pm* - with Heather Aveson
