Why take this course?

This course is aimed at film makers and camera operators who wish to further their skills and knowledge in the use of selected camera filters and location lighting techniques. It is a two day course which will be based in the state-of-the-art TV studio and editing suites at our Aberdeen City Campus.

What you will experience

The course is in two parts – each covering essential topics and techniques.

  • Part 1 will introduce you to a range of camera filters and how they are fixed to the camera via a matte box. You will then explore the different effects each filter can offer the programme maker, and how the use of appropriate filters can enhance the production.
  • Part 2 will introduce you to basic lighting techniques and set ups commonly found on location. A range of lanterns and fixings will be demonstrated in simulated conditions, and you will also focus on important health and safety procedures.
