Popular digital film making course to be offered in January

October 28, 2013

Charlottetown, PE – Holland College is once again offering its popular Digital Film Making course with instructor and award-winning film maker Brian Sharp.The course will run on Monday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. starting January 13 and running until February 3.

Social media is becoming the prevalent method for disseminating information for private companies, entertainers, artists, writers, craftspeople and not for profit organizations. Incorporating digital film can be an effective way of engaging with the audience, but not if the resulting product misses the mark because the film maker had too few technical skills. The course seeks to address those issues.

The course includes an introduction to the digital filmmaker’s camera, lighting and sound gear; basic camera and sound positions and recording techniques; three-point lighting techniques and working with available lighting; media literacy, the language of storytelling for digital filmmaking; camera positioning; an introduction to post production processes; editing and basic sound design/mix; client management; and scaling projects to fit a budget.

Although it is not mandatory, participants are encouraged to bring their own video camera, flip camera or phone with video capabilities.

Award-winning film maker Brian Sharp, who has 18 years of experience in the industry, is the course instructor. His experience ranges from short films to 220 episodes of a daily TV series. He has produced several successful TV kids’ series, including two seasons of the CBC series Razzberry Jazzberry Jam for Trapeze Animation Studios Ltd. Brian is the producer/director on the web series N3XT TV (www.n3xt.ca), and has several projects under development.

The course, which will be held at Sharp’s Springhead Studios, 250 Unit B, Queen Street, Charlottetown costs $245 per person. For more information or to register call 1-800-446-5265 or email shortcourses@hollandcollege.com
