FEATURING - THE GIMBAL MASTERCLASS WITH BRANDON LI
Gimbals are the latest trend in camera movement, allowing a single operator to do what used to require an entire crew of people (and a lot of expensive gear!) Now you can create incredible camera moves with only the gear that fits in your backpack. But it takes skill to get your gimbal moves to really shine. You can’t just plug in the right settings and expect Hollywood-level results.
In this exclusive program for TNG-CWA members, participants will have unlimited access to the masterclass AND will be sent a loaner DJI Ronin-SC Gimbal Stabilizer or DJI OM 4 Smartphone Gimbal (Training focuses on DSLR gimbals, however one can apply the principals to the OM 4 gimbal)
This is an intensive course, starting with the basics of setting up and balancing your gimbal, then teaching you dozens of essential gimbal moves. You’ll even learn how your gimbal can imitate a crane, jib, or drone! Then, we go out to the real world and I demonstrate how I shoot in a crowded, difficult environment. You’ll see there’s a lot more to learn than just how to move your feet. Finally, I show you how to craft a narrative “one-take” scene: an entire scene in one shot. You’ll learn how to break a scene down into “beats”. You’ll learn blocking and rehearsal. And I’ll show you my special techniques for using autofocus in complex scenes. This lesson is its own mini-masterclass in gimbal storytelling.
