Intro to Professional Camcorders

This class teaches students the fundamentals of NCTV's professional line cameras. Although the teacher will explain each topic from square one, it is not meant for beginners that aren't familiar with the key videography (or photography) concepts of F-Stops, Color Temperature, and Depth of Field. The class focuses on how to operate the camera's manual settings and how these settings serve a creative project. After taking this class, students will secure the option to rent out the cameras for free to practice on their own. This class often constitutes the first step for hobbyists to become contract videographers for NCTV.

Open to ages 12 and up.

Experience Level: Intermediate

April 18th, 20th, 25th, and 27th from 5:30-6:30 pm. Must be an active NCTV member to register.
