    Whether we realize it or not, all of our clients are film critics. As video and animation become more essential to the architectural design process, it’s important that we have a basic understanding of filmmaking and cinematography. If a camera movement looks unnatural or the editing is slightly off, your client will notice and will be distracted, missing the key points you’re trying to convey. This course will provide an overview of basic filmmaking concepts that you can use to improve the quality of your architectural animations. You’ll discover the techniques and core concepts important to professional filmmakers, as well as how to apply them in the architectural profession. The class will cover the basics of filmmaking: framing, camera movement, music, and editing—all of which are critical to creating professional-looking films. Attendees will walk away with a basic knowledge of filmmaking concepts that will take their animations to the next level.
