Note: When using zooms you have a bit more freedom in terms of composition but the same rule applies. Keep talant about an arms length away from the camera if them mic is camera mounted. In the previous episode (Ghost Town), we're using the same lens but I'm just a bit further back. Still OK but a zoom like a 24-70 would work very well for this type of stuff.
Unbelievable teaching experience. Great students, crew and sponsors. Big thanks to Eduardo Angel for being 2nd in command.
Note on the audio...
The RØDE Video Mic Pro is by far the best of the on camera mics out there. I think I have tested them all (or at least almost all), of them. Been using for ages and it lives on my C100 now. Next episode will be a little bit more about that.
Aside from my usual schedule of production based sessions at NAB's Post|Production World Conference, I will be heading up a very speciall all day field trip on Saturday, April 6th. The second half of the video above talks a little bit about the experience.
I'll be heading out to Vegas early this year to scout and set up for this workshop that will focus on camera movement and lighting control.
This field trip will take place at the Nelson Nevada Ghost Town and will be a very unique experience for attendees. Its all an day field trip and will include not only a great location but a team of production experts and actors for you to get very hands-on instruction with some of the best equipment out there.
We'll have great equipment from sponsors such as Genus, Ikan, Indie Dolly, Induro, Kessler, Lastolite, Manfrotto, Marshall, Nice Industries, Redrock Micro, Tiffen and Zacuto.

We'll have the FS700, C100 and 5DMKIII there and lots of learning going on. Camera, audio, lighting. Still spots left and tell them theC47 and you'll still get the early bird rate.
