The Motion Workshop

Part 2. // (see Part 1 here)


So why did I decide to hold a workshop?

I had noticed that a majority of the video workshops happening (online and off) were heavily focused on gear and aimed at very experienced videographers. This sort of left out photographers who didn't originally start their journey through video, but over the past few years have developed a serious interest in it. But it doesn't stop there because I think there's something JUST as important (sometimes even more than) gear when it comes to cinematography: human connection.
  
See, photographers have the amazing ability to have gear that can transition them from stills to video/motion instantly AND know the fundamentals of creating an image (composition, message, lighting). But, when you've been thinking in stills for years, the transition to motion isn't always easy. You are no longer capturing a single still. You are unfolding a moment from start to end. Or, you unfold a moment in an unanticipated way to heighten your viewer's interest. See, that's the kind of stuff that gets me excited. How to set a mood through motion, how to direct, how to create a character, and keeping your viewer's attention.
The Motion Workshop teaches artists the power of motion storytelling. We cover everything from filming for your brand, consistent imagery, creating value for your product, storyboarding, directing clients who aren't models, human connection, technical details, and a beautifully styled set of shoots to do hands-on filming and editing. I also have one-on-one time with each attendee to discuss their specific journey and what their current needs are to incorporate motion into their work.

So that's what this is all about. A bit of my world and what I love to do :) Here's where to sign up to be on the mailing list to find out when I announce the next one: The Motion Workshop

Next, we will unfold the magic that happens in conceptualizing the styled shoots!
