The one thing that made me excited about this program was that even though it was online, it allowed both me and Olivia to learn how to go through the process of film making and if that is the path that one year she would like to continue to do then she will be wonderful at it. While watching the videos online with Zack Lawrence, I realized that he said in most of his videos to not let the information and sit but for you to go out and practice what you have just learned in that specific lesson. This is true for anyone who is learning film making or even dealing with photography like I do. This is a very important lesson to learn. We have gone through several of the lessons and have learned so much already. Olivia has been “practicing” on her pets and even on Yoda who doesn’t stay still which is a good thing for using a camera. It’s not like she’s taking a picture of him but she is recording him for a mini video of him. She loves chasing him around the yard or the house and I love seeing the happiness I see in her as she does this each time we watch a lesson. This is a very informational course to take online and is easy to do while at home. I love how Olivia is coming up with ways to incorporate this in the next time we go to Disney World so that she can come up with a pretty awesome movie for our family to watch.
Now comes the fun part….I now have a Canon XS which is an old DSLR more for the starter photographer but now a days you can get a wonderful DSLR that does video as well. This is what I am hoping to upgrade to and Olivia and I can make our own movies when we travel in which we do a lot these days. You don’t have to have just a video camera you can use a DSLR camera which is amazing and you can definitely get the different views. I already have several so we could just incorporate those our use on our new DSLR.
