Filmmaking in Dubai.

The workshop will cover the basics of filmmaking including lighting, camera movement, sound, and equipment. Eduardo and the students will collaborate as a small film crew to plan, shoot, and edit a short film.


We are truly hon­ored to be a part of the upcom­ing Gulf Photo Plus (GPP) Work­shops in Dubai. From March 1–8 2013, we will be team­ing up with indus­try lead­ing pro­fes­sion­als Joe McNally, Gre­gory Heisler, David Hobby, Zack Arias, Peter Hur­ley, Bobbi Lane, and other great photo instruc­tors for an unfor­get­table event. We will have a jam-packed week with work­shops and activ­i­ties aimed to help improve skills, inspire, and edu­cate pho­tog­ra­phers at every level of exper­tise. Tak­ing place at the core of the Mid­dle East’s photo com­mu­nity, this is going to be one incred­i­ble week!

We are thrilled to present two “Photo Fri­day” sem­i­nars AND two 3-day Work­shops intro­duc­ing the craft of Dig­i­tal Film­mak­ing to photographers.

As we all know, the emer­gence of HD Video in cur­rent cam­eras has opened up a new world to pho­tog­ra­phers and cin­e­matog­ra­phers, widen­ing the cre­ative palette for visual expres­sion. Our workshop’s empha­sis will be on rein­forc­ing the the­ory behind the tech­nique; under­stand­ing the equip­ment and processes rather than con­cen­trat­ing on a fin­ished product.

Here are some of the many top­ics we will cover, all while work­ing as a small film crew: Dig­i­tal cin­ema work­flow, terms and tech­niques, Adobe Pre­mier Pro, script writ­ing, pro­duc­tion con­sid­er­a­tions, bud­get­ing, and the most essen­tial gear.

“The HDSLR sem­i­nar was a great way to get acquainted with the process of shoot­ing video. Mr. Angel took us from the pre-production process all the way through pro­duc­tion, explain­ing which gear is needed to get the job done. As a video edi­tor with more than 15 years of expe­ri­ence, I was pleas­antly sur­prised to hear him talk­ing about post-production, for­mats, and codecs, in terms that any still pho­tog­ra­pher could understand. I went to the sem­i­nar look­ing for a bet­ter under­stand­ing of HD Video on DSLR cam­eras and came out with that, and a lot more. If you want to make the move from stills to move­ment, this sem­i­nar is an excel­lent way to start.”
