DSLR Starter Kit

After shooting the feature film Act of Valor with the Canon DSLR platform, I immediately saw the power of this compact, affordable tool. It sparked my excitement to share what I had learned and pioneered on set. This camera launched a content creation revolution. Everyone thought they could become a filmmaker and there were few mentors to show them the ropes. Not on my watch! This 6 part series is the foundation of great DSLR shooting. The tools might have changed from our trusty Canon 5D MK II but the workflow, the etiquette and the techniques have not.

 

I’ve used the DSLR to shoot commercials, short films and feature films including Act of Valor, Need For Speed, and Deadfall. In this series, I demonstrate how to achieve a truly professional, cinematic look that you will feel proud to showcase.
