ONE-TO-ONE VIDEO CAMERA AND AUDIO
"Thank you very much for providing the one-to-one course, it was exactly what I needed and gave me the confidence to handle the camera and compose shots with at least some idea of what I was doing.
The day immediately
following the training I arrived on location to find that
I had about 1 minute to prepare, I surprised myself by getting
the camera set up and ready to roll without missing any
of the action."
"Hi Christina - Just
a short note from a very satisfied customer to say thank
you for the training on Friday - I think you literally answered
every question I had! With a tasty lunch thrown into the
bargain, it was an extremely worthwhile day. Many thanks."
"Just wanted to say a
very big thank you of appreciation for yesterday’s
training. Whilst on the one hand you opened my eyes
to some of the complexity, you also gave me the confidence
to start trying it out, knowing that with your training
behind me it is highly unlikely I’ll make a complete
fool of myself."
skill expertly explained and demystified."
"Thanks Christina! Wonderful training
on my new camera1, easily explained, and great fun. The two day course
was well organised, thorough and has helped me enormously. I would
recommend you to anyone."
"The instructions were clear and
easy to understand. Nothing was a problem for the trainer. She has
inspired me to continue what I've learnt and go on to learn more."
Excellent. very informative and interesting.
At first I wondered how I was going to remember everything - but it's
all falling into place.
"Very good - covered all the areas
I needed to learn about."
" I went to Christina Fox for a one-to-one course on the PD 100 camera. It was for just one day but, it was invaluable. Christina was friendly, explained things very well and she even threw in lunch!
I'm taking a PD 100 with me to South Africa where I will be filming some packages for BBC South East Today, the regional television news programme I work for. I'm not a complete beginner on the PD 100, but I wanted to increase my confidence with it.
The full day course was
intensive but it allowed me to ask very specific questions, and sometimes
very simple ones! I could skip the things I already knew, and concentrate
on things I was unsure about. We started off with some theory but there
were lots of practical exercises too. And it's very reassuring to know
that I can go back to Christina with any queries I might have."
"Hi Christina, A
great many thanks for a hugely informative and enjoyable day. I found
the training extremely useful and can't wait to use the camera with
a new understanding and confidence. I never thought I could learn
so much in one day!"
"The one day one-on-one training course I had with Urban Fox was very useful. The course was tailor made to meet my requirements and the trainer, Christina Fox is extremely friendly and helpful.
The course also has the
added benefit of Christina being happy to answer any DV queries after
the course ends. We covered a lot of ground in one day and I now feel
a lot more confident about shooting on DV."
"The programme you set up met my requirements very well indeed. I really appreciated the professionalism and experience which obviously went into designing it.
The pace in the programme and variety of techniques you use (demonstration video extracts, vox pop sequences, detailed & patient explanations) make the course very rich and stimulating.
I did not believe I would
learn as much and enjoy it as much. It was very much worth the trip all
the way from deepest Burgundy to London."
"I really enjoyed
the course - you coverered all the key areas of the camera and yet
spent enough time on each. I found the practical sessions the most
useful as it gave us the opportunity to apply all the theory we'd

ONE DAY OR TWO?
If you already have some experience, then one day will probably be enough. When it is one-to-one we can cover a lot in a day (compared to a learning in a big group), Because we can skip through the stuff you know and just concentrate on the areas you need help.
If you are a complete beginner - you may not know what you need exactly. If you let me know what camera and microphones you want to learn about and what kind of projects you intend to shoot - I can design something for you.
Beginners usually find two days more useful. Cameras and audio packed into a day can be a lot to take in - in one go. With two days we can go at a slower pace, do more practical stuff and keep going over things until you're happy. That said if you can only afford one day - I can give you enough info to get started, you can always do a follow up day later.
Call me on 020 8621 3649 and we can compare diaries and decide when would be a good time to do the training.
If you are buying a video camera - book the training to start some time after you receive delivery. That will give you time to have a play and build up a list of questions. Plus, I can teach you on your camera and help you set up the menus correctly.
If you don't know what kit to buy, give ma a call and I can point you in the right direction.
These are the most popular cameras. But, I can also do other cameras on request.
