- Welcome to this training series, where we're going to get you all the info you need to shoot great video with a DSLR camera. - My name is Chad Perkins and this here is Brian Liepe, the best cinematographer and camera person and lighting person I've ever seen in my entire life, and we are extremely excited to show you the ins and outs of these amazing cameras. - [Brian] Several years ago, Chad and I were both shooting with these much more expensive cameras.
In order to get the same beautiful shots that these DSLR cameras can, we needed a lot more light and a lot more gear. - When DSLR's came out it sparked a huge revolution in the world of video. That huge rig cost almost $10,000. This little camera gets more cinematic footage in less light with less weight and for $500. - [Brian] In this training, we're going to start from scratch with the basics of cinematography and using different lenses.
- [Chad] From there we'll share with you our experience in using these cameras on set, and also in post production, including some of the problems we've encountered and what can be done to resolve them. - This course is going to be a great education and tons of fun. So let's get started.
