Let's Make Your Own Blender Blender short film!
Ready? Making a Blender short is a mammoth task, with many different steps -- in many different areas of filmmaking.
One area that you just need to get right: the camera!
Without knowing what you're doing, your movie quality will suffer -- and you'll quickly go from Spielberg to Spiel-blargh.
In this Blender course, you’ll learn about some real-world physics about how cameras work in Blender.
In 12 easy-to-follow lessons, we'll cover the essential concepts from still photography as well as cinematography.
You'll master the terminology that professional use (no, not every camera movement is a "pan"!) and, of course, you'll channel your inner Hitchcock and get a chance to practice the right techniques, hands on.
Rack focus is used to draw your viewer's attention to where you want it.
Time to learn more about the camera specifically in Blender.
In this section, we'll also get hands-on practice with an exercise that will challenge you to create a dramatic dolly zoom effect.
More exercises! Because you can never get too much practice...
