  5. 5. 1. Be the camera Cameras are vital for video content. They were used extensively on Jurassic Park, and in fact throughout Spielberg’s entire filmmaking career. Using a camera is easy. You turn it on, point it, and press record. That’s it. But whilst operating the camera is easy, “This is so simple! LOL!” -Steven there’s a bit of a trick to being able to use it well...

  6. 6. 2. The T-Rex can only see you if you move Whilst it’s easy to press record, it’s important that you have thought things through before you do so... A vitally important thing to do is to keep your camera steady. Shaky, messy footage is useless. Spielberg often collaborates with Janusz Kaminzki, academy-award winning Director of Photography. Janusz says: “Everything falls apart once you shake that shit about, Steven” -Janusz Aaron will now demonstrate some tricks to hold your camera still, like Jurassic Park holds it’s audience enthralled...

  7. 7. 3. Establishing shots The wonders of the genetic experiments which took place on Isla Nublar in Jurassic Park were incredible, and all the more so because the audience wasn’t confused as to where they are. Whenever you go somewhere, be sure to get an establishing shot of that location. That is - a shot from outside of the building you are about to enter. Or a nice high, wide shot of the huge conference room you are in. It’s about setting the scene, establishing the location within which the subsequent action takes place. Welcome... to....

  8. 8. 4. Three-Shot-Rule-For-The-Movie-Making-Skills WIDE MID CU These are your three shots. Use them. For every action you film you should be striving to capture a variety of angles. This three-shot rule gives you that variety and creates a complete scene rather than a fragment of footage. Like a whole dinosaur vs. a fossil. Much more interesting!

  9. 9. 5. Pick Your Shots Even though the crazy action in Jurassic Park seems like chaos, Steven Spielberg and his team actually planned the whole thing! Even the bit where the guy runs to the toilet! Pick your shots before you start shooting. Knowing where you are going to both start and end a shot means you will create easy cut points for editing, and this thought will ensure your footage is useful and informative. That’s not to say you shouldn’t be spontaneous - a mix of the two is perfect. Here is Steve planning out some shots, see what he’s doing there? “OK so start here, and then... go over there, Kcool?” And remember always shoot overlay! additional shots that can tell the story.

  10. 10. 6. Go easy on old mate Zoom Zooming is fine. It helps capture things more clearly and gives another tool to your big, strong filmmaking arsenal. But it can also be your worst enemy - the Velociraptor of video journalism! Only zoom when it is necessary to do so, and be aware that the further you zoom in the harder it will be to hold your 90% of the time you will camera steady. be better off simply moving closer to what you are trying to record - even if it’s something scary! You’ll notice that throughout the entire scene with the velociraptors on the kitchen, the camera never zooms. Zooms are distracting, and bring viewers’ attention to the camerawork rather than the more important things, such as the hot babes you are filming at Cannes...

  11. 11. 7. Shooting ratios Great footage is always great! Just ask Michael Kahn, Steven Spielberg’s longtime editor! “Yup, it is” -Mike But you need to capture the right amount of great footage! Don’t record hours of you in da club with all da skinniez and then only a few minutes out on the streets of Cannes during the day. A mix of all the various places your visit is ideal, but the real story we are after is the Young Lions experience. Not just from a fun perspective, but a professional one as well. So be sure to spread your filming time out evenly. Get a bit of hotel fun, a bit of roaming the streets, lots of Young Lions, and a bit of night life. Then you’re on the road to the oscars.

  12. 12. 8. Talk Amazing pictures of dinosaurs are great. But there’s no point if you can’t hear them! Everywhere you go, everything you do - you should always be describing it to camera. Tell us where you are, what you are doing, why it’s significant, what you feel about it - what you hope to achieve. The more talk the better, as this is what allows us to actually tell a story. Introduce yourselves, interact with each other. If traveling together, ask each other to present to camera. You work in media, you’re natural presenters! Talking directly to the camera creates a great feel for viewers, making the whole video seem very personal and real - and the entire experience of Cannes that much more entertaining and interesting. The characters in Jurassic Park talk all the time. Their dialogue is how we learn the storyline. Without it we’d just be seeing Sam Neil walk around. Then dinosaurs would appear... It would still be great, but definitely more confusing... This digital file / document contains confidential information and has been prepared for discussion purposes only.  12 TCO Pty..

  14. 14. 10. Have Fun The real key to making an entertaining video is to be entertaining. If you are having fun on the trip, this experience will translate on screen. Just ensure that you are filming at the right times, don’t waste that fun! LOL @ Kooky hats! ROFL!

  15. 15. 11. Interviews Never shoot pieces to camera/interviews with background music. Music rights are way expensive and we will not be able to use it in the edit, unless it is John Williams’ infamous score. Also when conducting an interview try not to speak over your subject as it makes it hard to edit down the track!
