The field equipment workshop focuses on the use of our rentable cameras, microphones and lights. Most of the workshop focuses on the use of our Sony NX5u camcorders. These are High definition prosumer grade cameras that record onto SD cards. We will also discuss the use of microphone and lights when outside a studio environment. Our Field Production workshop focuses on the producer’s role when shooting on location. Shooting on location has a number of unpredictability’s that can easily trip up the unprepared. Permits and legal hazards, Lighting and sound, Parking and transportation are all important factors to consider when planning a shoot at a location you don't control.
