Introduction To The Camera

Last week we where introduced to the camera we'll be using while filming our thriller. We learnt all the basics like turn it on and off, how to use a tripod, zooming, focusing while on manual focus, play back, etc.

We also learnt the rules we need to be aware of while using cameras:
  • Keep the camera out of the rain unless covered by a large umbrella
  • Ask permission to film, if the location is private property e.g shops, stations
  • Always closes the lens while not filming, to prevent any damage  
  • Be aware of where your filming e.g don't film on a railway or in the middle of a busy road!
  • Never film any illegal activities e.g graffiti or vandalism. This could result in the whole group getting disqualified.
