Samy’s Photo School is pleased welcome Panasonic Lumix Ambassador & Award Winning Filmmaker Matthew Sutherland for this live online event!

During this Hands-On workshop, Matthew will teach you everything you need to know about lighting, sound and camera movement for professional documentary interviews. We will go over the differences in lighting interviews for different projects and how to create mood and tone with lighting and cinematic camera movements.

Topics to be covered:

1. Equipment needed for lighting, sound and camera in capturing professional documentary interviews.

2. How do we create the mood for the proper tone of our film?

3. What is three point lighting for video, how do we achieve it and what else do I need to know about lighting the scene?

4. Where to place the camera and should I move the camera for an interview?

5. How do I make sure to achieve the best sound possible every time?
