Assignment 1 – Camera Basics

You and a partner will head out on campus and find a place or an object and shoot that place or object from a variety of perspectives. You’ll edit the piece together in a very basic format, which we will discuss in class. Setup your sequence in AVCHD 1080p / 60fps and export in format H.264 1920 x 1080

You will need to shoot a minimum of the following, but keep in mind you need to use your best examples, so overshoot:

Shooting Requirements

  • A wide, medium, tight shot of your place or object from three different perspectives, holding each shot for 0:12 to 0:14 seconds (use a tripod)
  • A pan (use a tripod)
  • A tilt (use a tripod)
  • An off the tripod creative shot of your choice

Editing Requirements

  • Final video must be at least one minute and a half (1:30) long and no longer than two (2:00) minutes.
  • Each clip (wide, medium, tight, pan, tilt, off tripod) should be shown for around 4 to 5 seconds.
  • Include a title called “Camera Basics” and includes you and your partners name – show for 5 seconds
