The Workshop included the following Topics: Creating a Concept, Lighting, Camera Settings, Kind of Shots, Lenses and their Uses, Camera Movement, Editing, and Colorgrading. Attendees were able to participate during the Individual Camera Movement Practice as we had them correctly hold a Gimbal (a piece of equipment that helps keep the Camera Stable). The Lighting part of it was handled by Dr. Nkeng Stephens’ right hand man, the skilled Duala Duala.
When we asked him “What was your main reason for having this workshop ?“ He responded saying; “To reach out to all the questions upcoming or aspiring video directors have been asking me. To share with Cameroon and the world my tips and techniques on how I do my job.”
Dr Nkeng Stephens recently wrote this on his page, “This Workshop was very important to me. We didn’t have any means of learning while we were upcoming directors. It was important that I help pave the way for the next generation of directors. It was important I share my knowledge and techniques so a stuggling or upcoming director might be able to pick up a technique. It is important to me that they know not to give up.”
Good job Dr. Nkeng, we look forward to more workshops from you.
