Here's your chance to get some equipment together and get outside to enjoy your film summer!
This quarter's Field Production Certification Workshop series will give you the basics on the principles of film & video, run through an introduction to the equipment on hand for public access producers and open the door for you to use our Public Access Edit Lab, which is seeing more and more use now that our upgraded Mac terminals offer the full range of Adobe Creative Suite software as well as Final Cut X video editing software.
Participants will film and edit a final project for this workshop, either a Public Service Announcement (PSA) or short film between 2-5 minutes in duration. A good recent example is 'Preserving Ashland Creek' by newly certified RVTV field producer Kate Nixon.
All four workshops will be taught by RVTV Mentor and prolific field producer David Bruce, who produces programs such as 'aMuse' and 'After Ten' under The Rogue Cap. David was featured in "Take 3," the most recent episode of The Jeffersonian, which is a co-production between the DMC and Southern Oregon Public Television (SOPTV) which involves our SOU film & video students in all aspects of production.
The Field Production series will take place on the following dates:
Saturday, July 26th – 12-2pm: Introduction to the Principles of Field Production & basic techniques of television and film producers.
Saturday, August 2nd – 12-2pm: Introduction to RVTV Field Equipment & the fundamentals of camera, tripod and microphone operation.
Saturday, August 9th – 12-2pm: Introduction to the Principles of Editing, demonstrations of HD vs. SD program design & review of PSA Proposals.
Saturday, September 6th – 12-2pm: Project premiere! Attendees review projects, provide feedback and are given tips and tools for future endeavors.
Workshops are $30 each. You can pre-pay to guarantee your seat in the class — just contact Charles at email@example.com or (541) 552-6898. Currently certified field producers may re-take the class free of charge only if there are open seats remaining
