Weekend Shoot Forces CTVN Students to Adapt


by Lauren Johnson
Last weekend, Community TV Network filmed and photographed a large birthday party in the Bridgeport neighborhood, giving our interns the chance to showcase their production skills. The interns, Byonca Dodson and Elsa Concepcion, were supervised by instructor Vedran Residbegovic, an experienced videographer responsible for many of CTVN Video Services video jobs in the last five years. In addition to helping decide how and what to shoot, Byonca and Elsa had the difficult task of getting used to new equipment — Canon EOS C100 and manual Nikon lenses.

“When we started, I gave Byonca and Elsa some basic instructions, but the two of them soon took over completely. They did an exceptional job. The footage was absolutely gorgeous.” said Vedran Residbegovic.


Byonca and Elsa weren’t the only ones learning, as Residbegovic had to get used to his more supervisory role: “One thing I learned is to be completely comfortable to step away from the camera, knowing that our interns will do an excellent job with the video.”
