Thursday, March 10th, 2016, 3:00-5:00 in MCML 342

Guido Toelke & Julia Dordel

In this second seminar on March 10th we will continue to cover the basics of smartphone-filmmaking starting from how to shoot footage to editing this footage using your smartphone, tablet or laptop.

We will talk further about more creative (almost) free DIY equipment solutions to create a professional film look. We will screen a few smartphone short films that were produced during this past week. Using these practical examples we will discuss what pitfalls to avoid, challenges when interviewing people, and filming still- and moving objects. We will also take a closer look at the editing process.

The seminar is mandatory for TerreWEB Scholars as well as for students registered in CONS 503 C /SOIL530 B – however, everyone is welcome!

Please direct any enquiries to Julia Dordel (terre.web@ubc.ca).
