This was the powerpoint about camcorder care and successful recording for video production/media arts students. There are are 5 parts to this powerpoint. Each day I would review each section that would lead up the camcorder quiz. Students needed to pass the camcorder quiz as a pre-requisite in order to check out the camcorders in class.
The first part covers camcorder movement with images such as pan, tilt and dolly. The first part concludes with two videos from you tube that I found about camera movements.
The second part covers tripod and dolly set up. The second videos are from vimeo.
The third part covers 5 common mistakes students make while filming, the rule of thirds and general camcorder maintenance.
The fourth part explains how to keep the camcorders safe, how to avoid improper handling of equipment.
The fifth part goes into extreme detail about the fun stuff about the Sony Handycam HDR-CX220! It explains the parts to our camcorders, borrowing tips.
