participants learned how to use a mobile phone to film like a professional cameraperson. Emphasis was placed on composition, camera angles and movements to tell stories in creative ways. The presenter started with PowerPoint presentation that explained what frame, framing, and shot are. He showed how to compose shots with good head room and look room, and how to use different camera angles to tell a story. The presenter screened two of his students’ works (PSA and news story) that were shot entirely with a mobile camera and discussed the production techniques used to achieve the quality work. He also gave out handout that contained information presented in his Power Point presentation.
The presenter demonstrated how to hold mobile phone correctly and stand properly to shoot video professionally. Afterwards, each participant used their mobile phone cameras to practice different techniques that they learned, and the presenter critiqued each shot; participants got instant feedback on what is correct and/or wrong in the videos that they shot during the workshop. The participants had the opportunity to reshoot their shots until they got them right. These techniques helped participants shoot video shots that looked professional without spending a lot of money on expensive video camera.
