Learn all about shooting live events as a trained cameraperson for the Pickathon Music Festival, one of the largest outdoor music festivals in the US (August 4-7).
This mentored crew experience is open to anyone with an interest in filming music, sports and other live events, from absolute beginners/novices to advanced filmmaking students. A combination class and field experience, the fun starts with four weekly instructional sessions devoted to hands-on camera operation techniques, specialized gear such as jibs, robotics, switchers and more, and how a camera crew and director work together as a creative team on location. A class practice shoot at Mississippi Studios on Friday, July 22nd will let everyone shake the bugs out. Then the group will head out to Pendarvis Farm to set up and serve as the camera crew for Pickathon’s Treeline Stage, working with mentors to film the stage’s music acts during the action-packed, multi-day music extravaganza (which runs August 4-7).
