We live in an age in which it is possible to learn almost anything online. All you really need is the determination to concentrate - free of distractions - and dedicate enough time to learn the subject properly. Film is no exception to this, and one excellent site that we highly recommend is www.lavideofilmmaker.com, a free website with all kinds of excellent resources on how to make movies. Any serious student of film should navigate to it, bookmark it, and drink deep from the well.
What is www.lavideofilmmaker.com?
A site dedicated to the art and craft of film making.
Where can I find it?
What are the good bits?
We recommend you follow this link to http://www.lavideofilmmaker.com/filmmaking/film-techniques.html which has some excellent material on the basics of camera and cinematography.
I'm an animator -why do I need to learn this?
Because camera and cinematography are at the very heart of film-making. You can't tell a story without understanding shot progression, and this means knowing where to put the camera, and when. Is it a wide shot? A close-up? How do you get from one shot to the next? Animators are film-makers and story-tellers, and we need to study film-making just like anyone else.
For more on the experience of studying at Bucks New University, come and visit us at one of our Open Days, take a virtual tour of one of our animation studios, check out what our students think of our course, and see why we're ranked in the top 12 creative universities in the UK. Find out why we're giving free laptops to all our students, and why we give all our students free access to videos at Lynda.com. Also, see what financial assistance might be available to you.
