Once a semester, the PHT 130 (Video I) students get to “play” with many of the filming tools we have available: dolly, jib, slider, as well as, work on lighting set ups to better understand the types of lights, hard vs. soft, gels and color temperature, and decreasing intensity.
Here are a few still shots from this afternoon:

Watch as student Meghan Oney is viewed through the lens of the RED Epic camera though the reflection of the camera operator is seen as he racks focus.
What used to be common advertising gimmicks has now transitioned into the same cliches just in video format. But is this a bad thing? Video can arguably move emotions easier and with more depth than print ads so video opens up many new opportunities to connect with an audience but the same foundations are still there…
Make it memorable:
Former film students Meghan Oney and Paige Fischer volunteered their time two weeks ago during the LTR Division’s sponsored Tech Week event.
During three separate sessions, they demonstrated the use of Adobe’s Premiere Pro to complete simple editing commands.
Their demonstrations were well-received by students and faculty alike.
We thank them so much for all their hard work and time in helping the campus.
Here are a few pictures of the event:
