Camera Hacks for the Frugal Filmmaker

Get the most out of every shot with Winter Film Awards and Steven DeCastro. Filmmakers: in this competitive environment, are you getting the most out of every shot?

In this hands-on workshop, learn camera techniques to achieve the film look on an indie budget. In this day and age, even the frugal-lest film crews use grip gear like gimbals and sliders for smooth camera movement, but because of lack of training, some directors only end up creating fancy shots that take away from the story.

In 2017, Director Steven De Castro developed this class while teaching African filmmakers in three universities in Ghana. These African students learned effective camera movement techniques in a nearly zero-budget environment, and now you can, too. Employing the methods of the legendary British film instructor Roy Thompson, Steve will guide you through the theory of motivated camera movement through exercises and onscreen examples.
