Since the dawn of the motion picture age, people have been following political candidates around with cameras. But now you have to do it, and it’s hard to know where to start. In this training, we’ll share tips and tricks on run-and-gun shooting for newcomers, how to plan to capture exciting, high-quality B-roll at campaign stops, make sure you’re ready for the unexpected, and get all the key moments on film. We’ll also teach you how to build a kit that ensures your footage looks great without breaking the bank or requiring weekly physical therapy.
