The course will be mostly hands-on and we’ll be using a camera, tripod, lighting kit, smartphone and iPad/GoPro. You might, however, like to bring along your own equipment/phone/GoPro etc.
If you use an iPhone, the app we use is Filmic Pro: . Don’t, however, feel you need to buy it right now. It’s not essential for the course.
We will also be covering the basics of editing, using Hit Film Express:
This is free. Again, it’s not essential you have it for the course but you might find it useful – particularly when we go through editing examples.
If you don’t have any of the above, don’t worry!
