Course Description

FiLMiC Pro is the industry leading mobile video & filmmaking app utilized around the globe. This is the camera app regularly used by the BBC. Hollywood director Steven Soderbergh also used it on two of his recent movies! And the great thing is it's available for anyone and everyone to do the same using iPhone or Android.
In this guide we'll start with the basics of getting to know the app, then learn how to use it to shoot professional quality video with your smartphone.
Covers these topics and more:
  • Choosing resolution and frame rate
  • Manually control white balance, exposure and focus
  • Using histograms, zebra stripes, and focus peaking
  • Setting up and shooting slow motion
  • Using presets to quickly repeat different shooting setups
  • Best audio settings
  • HDMI and wireless video monitoring
  • Timelapse settings
  • Best ways to transfer the video files from your phone for editing
  • Shooting with the Cinematographer Kit and log footage (plus a bonus color grading tutorial)
  • Hands-on gear demos (suggested camera rigs, gimbals and third-party lenses)
  • Overall Best Practices for before, during and after your FiLMiC Pro shoot
  • Top mobile filmmaking accessories (with direct links to Amazon and/or B&H)
  • Also included are future key feature updates to the V6 app! So far we've added White Balance Auto-Lock and the iPhone 11 Ultra Wide lens compatibility.

Well done and really helping me get comfortable with Filmic Pro. Also will use to review features and practices.

Easy to follow. Very thorough. I have not found any other FiLMiC Pro courses out there that are this in-depth.
