Are you a cinephile or producer seeking to become more skilled with video? Are you a creative looking to add fresh video content for your company? Do you have a burning desire to learn how to shoot video? Or are you a freelancer looking to make yourself more marketable for video production jobs?

Today’s high-definition cameras afford filmmakers at all levels the ability to learn to shoot video in an easy, flexible way. To help you learn advanced video technology and to give you the skills you need to make compelling, professional videos, we’ve redesigned our in-person DSLR Video Production Bootcamp into an online course so you can get up to speed from wherever you are.

The Bootcamp brings you the best tips, tricks and know-how in a 32-hour intensive training course (spread out over several sessions). You can use any video camera you have (or borrow/rent)–we’ll be using a Canon DSLR but students have been joining the Bootcamp with smartphones, video cams, DSLRs–it’s been a blast! You will gain hands-on experience in all aspects of short-form video production, including production planning (pre-production), shooting (production) and editing (post-production) from BAVC’s expert instructors.

Part 1 covers planning, pre-production and production

Part 2 covers Adobe Premiere Pro CC and editing the footage shot in Part 1

You’ll be learning video basics including:

Basic engineering and sound
Pre-production planning, scripting, and storyboarding
Camera operation
Lens choice
Production and directing techniques
Working as a team throughout the production process
Ingesting media
Working with dual-system audio

Video Production Bootcamp Workshop via Zoom

BAVC offers  video classes created in San Francisco and delivered via synchronous distance learning using the Zoom video meeting platform. What’s cool is that you not only learn from the instructor but from others in the group. So many people are using video now that people want to learn how to shoot and edit and see how others learn, too. You can pick up a lot of knowledge even if you’ve never picked up a camera and if you are looking to improve your self-taught experience shooting video, this Bootcamp is for you.
