MED4114 Television Location Production Skills Diary Week 3

Learning Diary Week 3 – 13/02/14

In our third week we got to start using the cameras and tripods. We began by learning how to set up the external hard drive where any footage we shot would be stored. This involved formatting the memory card to erase any previous footage left on and putting it to the correct settings so we wouldn’t have any problems when importing the footage to the computer. We then looked at how to set up the tripods cameras. We experimented with different shot sizes and learned how to adjust settings such as white balance and the focus.

In the directed study we took cameras and tripods out in groups and shot about 60 seconds of footage each around the University which we will edit the following week in preparation for our first assignment task.
