The Matteboxes & Zoom Controllers DVD by First Light Video focuses on how to use matteboxes & zoom controllers in filmography. This 57 minute DVD is part of the Digital Filmmakers Training Course.
Learn how to achieve that crisp, contrast look in films, when shooting into the sun and avoiding a milky or hazy shot by using a mattebox to shoot into the sun. It gives great highlights everywhere, the actors are naturally backlit, the sun isn't in their eyes and the scene looks more dynamic.
Learn how to protect the camera lens from haze and the major culprit, flare.
Matteboxes allow you to mount 4x4 and sometimes 4x5.65 filters and shade wide angle lens adapters that do not have lens hoods.
Learn the essential zoom controller used to easily change the focal length of your lens without moving your hand away from the pan handle.
If zooming for an industrial or how-to video or for effect, the zoom controller is indispensable for providing a smooth focal length change without unnecessary jitter on the camera body.
Learn all about electronic zoom and focus controllers.
DVD features motion menus & instant-access chapter buttons.
