Field Production Workshop

The Field Production workshop takes students into the process of cinematography, lighting and audio. With a focus on the manual controls available through larger 3-chip DV cameras, such as the Sony PD-170, this class is intended for individuals who either already have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of video production or who have never even touched a camera before! Learn how to use manual shutter speed, iris, focus, and audio like a pro to get the highest quality video possible. Upon completion of this class DOM members will be certified to use the advanced digital video cameras (Sony Z1U, PD-170, Canon XL-1), lighting and audio equipment available through DOM free of charge to make their own shows and films for our channels. In August 2011, we started offering a free livestream of the first 2 hours of our Field Production Workshop to allow community members access to the the information about filming your own media projects. To tune in to the livestream, please go to during the first two hours of any Field Production Workshop listed on the class schedule. After you participate in the livestream, participants are able to become certified to use Denver Open Media's field gear can do so by attending the second part of the Field workshop at Denver Open Media; if you are interested in more information about this, please contact
