Dates: 2-day Workshop

Sat­ur­day 6/8 — 6/9 2013 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Code: SWC-2391-A

This work­shop is designed for pho­tog­ra­phers who are mak­ing the tran­si­tion into dig­i­tal cin­ema. We will cover the essen­tial selec­tions of cam­eras, lenses, exter­nal mon­i­tors, fol­low focus units, fluid heads, sup­port rigs, mem­ory cards and hard dri­ves. We will also dis­cuss audio and con­stant light­ing solu­tions. The sim­i­lar­i­ties and dif­fer­ences of shoot­ing still pho­tographs and videos will be looked at as we explore res­o­lu­tion, file for­mats and file types. The busi­ness aspects of film­mak­ing will also be taught includ­ing film­mak­ing terms, shoot­ing tech­niques and respon­si­bil­i­ties of crewmembers.

Recently PDN Mag­a­zine pub­lished what we con­sider the “13 Prod­ucts you need to add HD Video to your busi­ness.” (You might need the pass­word “tuto­ri­als” to down­load the file.) The arti­cle is also avail­able on PDN’s May print issue. If you are new to Video, this list is a great place to start.

Pre­req­ui­site: SWC-1012, Mac­in­tosh Basics, or equiv­a­lent.

“I arrived the first day with ZERO knowl­edge about video and was com­pletely intim­i­dated about jump­ing into the world of video. I had high hopes that your sem­i­nar would get me started, but was pre­pared to be dis­ap­pointed if that didn’t hap­pen. After two days in your sem­i­nar, I have to say, you exceeded my hopes and expec­ta­tions. I walked away from the first day feel­ing like the sem­i­nar was worth every penny I had paid and was excited and look­ing for­ward to day two! I walked away feel­ing inspired and ready to START shoot­ing video right away. Your enthu­si­asm, atten­tion to detail, and care in cre­at­ing a cur­ricu­lum that was log­i­cal and easy to fol­low, along with your good humor as a teacher are a big part of mak­ing the sem­i­nar such a huge suc­cess.”
