If you'd like to know your camera better, and know a little about the basics of lighting, it's time to set yourself apart from the amateurs with professional audio, lighting, and production techniques! This workshop emphasizes real-world filmmaking skills to make your work look and sound better.
We'll start with a hard look at the gear and production equipment today's independent filmmaker needs and how to use each item in the production kit effectively. We'll discuss solid pre-production strategies so you don't have to fix it in post, followed by a live demo of lighting a professional-looking interview. You'll get loads of tips and tricks for getting great shots in the field, and even advice on how to acquire gear on a budget!

Bruce Borowsky has worked with People Productions in Boulder for over ten years as producer, director, cameraman, editor, and lighting director for a wide variety of commercial projects. He turned from professional still photographer to filmmaker in 1988 after working with adventure photographer Galen Rowell. Once in Boulder, Bruce produced the national television series The Climbing Show. His award-winning 2003 documentary, 18 days, 16 hours, detailing his trans-Atlantic race in a 72-foot sailboat, illustrates his vast experience shooting in unlikely places, whether in the midst of a hurricane or hanging off a rock ledge in Yosemite.
