Unit 5

Next Unit
The light at the end of the tunnel is nearing; keep the momentum up and we’ll finish film school in no time. This time around, we’ll get into some ancillary subjects, like filters, tripods, dollys, and data management, all necessary supports to the production of your film. We’ll also take a look at rotoscoping for VFX, tweaking color for focus and impact, and equalizing individual sound sources. Oh, and we’ll get into actually writing that script.
