I'm looking to gain experience in producing videos/films on a professional set, so I've been attending networking events and shoots of friends that I made from these gatherings. Over the past few weekends, I've been helping out at shoots to get an idea what happens exactly behind the scenes.
Now I know what happens, but I also wanted to find out why, so this month I signed up for a three day filmmaking workshop where we were challenged to come up with a story, write the script for it, then shoot and edit it. We also covered some basic knowledge about equipment and directing (such as type of shots and angles). It was a lot of work and pressure but I really enjoyed being part of something creative.
