Learn to create and edit a professional promotional piece
In this course, the filmmaker and video editor Gonzalo P. Martos - expert in digital postproduction, artistic photography and lighting - will teach you the basic technical principles to introduce you to the world of video with digital SLR cameras (DSLR).

About this course
You will start discovering the work and influences of Gonzalo P Martos.
Next, Gonzalo will talk about the basic fundamentals of video (key terms, formats and number of frames), the generic parameters of a camera and how to solve some common problems when recording.
You will also discover the types of objectives that exist and how to handle them, different sources of lighting and how to interact with them. In addition, you will know some accessories that will help you during filming and the tools you need to get a good sound.
Once you know the theoretical aspects, you will see Gonzalo working on a real film in a silk screen workshop. You will learn to analyze the location, you will know what features it offers and how to adapt to them. During the filming you will also see how an interview is recorded and how to take the necessary resources to later mount the piece.
When we have already the images that will make up the story, it will be time to move to the computer. Gonzalo will teach you how to properly organize the material, the basic tools of a video editing program (in this case Adobe Premiere) and assembly tricks to add dynamism to the piece. Finally, you will discover how to export the final video to be distributed over the internet with the highest quality.
What is this course's project?
You will make and edit a promotional piece of your work or someone else's.
Who is it for?
This course is aimed at photographers, filmmakers, creatives and all those people who want to get into the world of video and with few resources to get a totally professional promotional piece.
The weight of audiovisual content at the level of social networks and digital communication is increasing, so this course is also aimed at all those people who want to show their work to the world in a different way, beyond the typical portfolio with photographs, and highlight.
What you need
Basic notions about photography and how to handle a digital camera are required.
In terms of materials, you will need a camera, a mobile or other recording medium, a tripod, a computer and an editing program (Gonzalo will work with Adobe Premiere during the course but any other similar software is valid).
