Pre-filming test 1

Posted on by leoncych in Continual Professional Development | Comments Off on Pre-filming test 1

I’m pretty close to the look I want for a documentary I’m going to make on the state of Education, Pedagogy and Curriculum in the second decade of the 21st Century. I’m also now much closer to completion in terms of what kit I’m going to use (for now!) – getting to grips with the technical aspects has been a running battle between time, resources, money and workarounds.

Inbetween commercial filming jobs I constantly learn about new filming and post production techniques and tweak them until I’m satisfied with one particular area of production and then I can feel I can move forward.
