Videomaker's The Essential Video Skills Conference is a rare opportunity for video enthusiasts to meet with the Videomaker editors and network with other videographers in their area over a catered lunch, with lots of time for Q&A over the course of the training.
The curriculum focuses on the following essential areas of the video shoot: recording audio, lighting techniques, moving cameras like a pro, exploring equipment technology, organizing a shoot, working with a crew, and framing & composition.
There are 3 stages of making video: Pre-Production, Production and Post-Production. Mastering all 3 is essential for creating consistently pro-level video. While it might be possible for videographers to fake their way through the first and third stages and still get great video (not a Videomaker endorsed approach), if they haven't mastered the essentials of the Production stage, the video will always visibly suffer.
The Essential Video Skills Conference focuses on this critical middle stage. The Videomaker experts recently asked themselves this question: What are the skills that videographers absolutely must have to ensure that they capture great video every time they shoot? They ended up with a comprehensive list, cramming in all of the real-world techniques deemed most likely to take one's shooting skills to a whole new level.
Since 1996, Videomaker has hosted three-day workshops at their headquarters in Chico, California. These are typically attended by enthusiastic hobbyists and employees of businesses seeking to develop multimedia departments within their company. The Sacramento Essential Video Skills Conference takes the essential video shooting content from these workshops and compresses it down to one day.
Videomaker editor Jennifer O'Rourke, explains the motivation behind developing this event. "I can't imagine a more fulfilling hobby or career than the one of video production. Learning all the tricks and rules can be mind-boggling and downright intimating at times, but once it all clicks - how to light your scene, set your mics, compose your shots then bring it all together - it's magical. "
Founded in 1986, Videomaker was the first magazine to introduce video to a mass, non-industry audience. Though the video field has exploded dramatically in recent years, Videomaker still remains dedicated to its core mission: to encourage aspiring directors and documentarians to use video technology to find their own voices and tell their own stories. Today, Videomaker is more than just a magazine. It's grown to also become a robust online community, offering a full line of training DVDs, videos-on-demand and a series of webinars and hands-on video training workshops. Every month, nearly half a million professional videographers, independent filmmakers, and home video hobbyists turn to Videomaker at http://www.videomaker.com to get the latest video scoops.
