This highly practical, intensive course will teach you everything you need to know to get filming with confidence on the Sony FS7, and how to get to grips with its continuous super slow motion capabilities.

Structured with a mixture of theory and hands-on exercises, the course will take you step-by-step through setting an FS7 up to film with full manual control, teach you the camera’s technical strengths (and weaknesses), record broadcast quality sound, as well as showing you how to handle the tapeless workflow.

As well as the technical aspects, this course will also teach you key directing skills including framing, shot composition, building sequences, and shooting for the edit, so you can film material for broadcast.
