  1. Hey everyone, I've been looking for a solid, hands-on introductory class for a while now and I'm looking for some advice, recommendations, tips, things to look (out) for. The program should give me a foundation on which I can build for the coming years. I want to learn the tools and craft, not how to use a particular camera. I've found three solid options so far, and they are: 1- Maine Media Workshops (Maine, USA): 10 week intensive cinematography workshop. PROS: Asked around and this program is definitely solid with some world class instructors. CONS: Extremely expensive. (16k) 2- Global Institute (LA, USA): The foundational programs. PROS: World class program and instructors, located in L.A. CONS: Asked a friend, apparently even the foundational programs are a bit too advanced for someone who's never worked in the camera department. Pretty expensive (expensive at about 10k for a bunch of classes). 3- Afilms (Barcelona, Spain): 3 month Feature Film Cinematography. PROS: Solid program, but not as good as the other two though significantly cheaper. CONS: Starts in a year, that's in quite a long time. I feel like doing this in a couple of months. I don't mind studying anywhere in the world, as long as I can justify it to myself. The class should be technical. I've been curating and improving my eyes for a while now and I'm pretty familiar with filmmaking at many levels, but I want to demystify light (or at least start the process), as I feel it will benefit me greatly as a director. I also feel like shaping light, so being able to DP my own little projects, explore studio photography etc. is something I'm interested in. I'm not under the illusion that I will become a DP after this workshop, I just want to be able to think like one at a basic level, so I can improve myself in the future. Director's showreel if anyone's curious. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi, I'm going to work in a short film, about a group of blue collar man, train mechanics, that talk around a bonfire in a warehouse, which is a train workshop. I was thinking about the scene, trying to remember scenes from movies or series which a similar aesthetic. What I was thinking, especially with the bonfire, is that the scene could use a little of haze or smog, or mist in the air, which gives more volume to the air around the characters. The only way to do this is with an smog machine, or do you know another method? The idea is that another lights in the warehouse (the motivation is working lights, lights from the train, lights from the ceiling) could gain a little bit of volume, and in that way, give the scene more layers, besides the talents talking each other. If you have more information about how achieve this, or if you have some references from movies, or series, with similar aesthetic, I'll be grateful. Thank you all!
  3. Hi folks/students/eaters of knowledge I’m holding a workshop for cinematography set lighting. There are two four hour sessions being held at The Cove studio on Markfield Road, Tottenham, London on Saturday 18th August as part of the Fountayne Road Open Warehouse Day. It's aimed at people who haven't had any or little set lighting experience to come and educate their eyes by trying out things for themselves to see what the results are. A set is being specifically built for the workshop and it’s a fantastic opportunity to learn some real set lighting techniques whether for commercials, drama or music videos. We will also have a translight from Rosco to add a bit or reality to the set. So far Arri Lighting, Cirrolite (Dedolight and KinoFlo), Greenkit, Lightpanels, Rosco and Hive have expressed in interest or committed to supplying lighting, so a big thank you to them. This is being done at a really low cost due to the generosity of the studio owner Malene Oddershede Bach, the lighting sponsors and a number of other people contributing their help for free. As a result each four hour session is only £10! Here are the two links to book the sessions at Eventbrite, one morning session and one afternoon. Read the details of the sessions here and note that one session (afternoon) is women only just to try and get better numbers as women are under catered for in our industry for behind the camera (or light). https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/cinematography-workshop-session-1-interior-set-lighting-daynight-tickets-48718216497 https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/womens-cinematography-workshop-session-2-interior-set-lighting-daynight-tickets-48626522237 Jonathon Sendall DP, London UK

  5. Hi, I stopped shooting 4-5 years ago due to a sports injury which lead me to working in another field but now I want to start shooting again and I'm feeling a bit behind in the tech, workflow and rusty in my skills. I'm lucky enough to be visiting LA early next year & I'm looking at the ASC Masterclass. I'm concerned it's not really hands on? Is it? Isn't it? I see they're using the Alexa and going through the most current workflows etc but is it mostly learning through demonstration or are we able to get our hands on the tech, lights & set up some shots? Anyone who's done it got any reviews? What did u get out of it? Can anyone recommend an int-adv Cinematography workshop that's very hands on in or around LA? I don't often get over to the US so I'd really like to grab the opportunity. Thanks.

  7. Hello all! I've been searching the internet for 16mm courses or workshops in Europe for this autumn or next spring. I found these interesting workshops on experimental 16mm work in Australia: http://www.artistfilmworkshop.org/workshops/ Does anybody here know of something similar in Europe? Thanks in advance, Oona

  11. I hope it's okay to post about this here. I saw a few questions about filmmaking workshops. Website: http://www.shooteditlearn.com 2014 Speakers: Bonnie Curtis (Saving Private Ryan, Minority Report, A.I. Artificial Intelligence) Shane Hurlbut, ASC (Need for Speed, Terminator Salvation, We Are Marshall) Alex Buono (DP SNL Film Unit, Green Street Hooligans) Andy Baker ( SVP/Group Creative Director Nat Geo Channels) Ryan Connolly (Film Riot) Salomon Ligthelm Joe Simon Khalid Mohtaseb Joe Sciacca Joel Edwards (From shooteditlearn.com) Why Should You Choose Masters in Motion? We may be a little biased but we believe that Masters in Motion is the best filmmaking workshop around. What do we think sets us apart? Quality of Education In any creative field, many things are subjective. That is why we always gather a diverse group of speakers who are all successful working professionals from various backgrounds. We have everyone from wedding filmmakers, to smaller boutique production houses to people working on Hollywood feature films and everything in between. For Filmmakers, By Filmmakers This workshop was founded by and is run by two filmmakers. We know firsthand what it’s like to struggle to make ends meet as a freelancer. We know how intimidating it can be to try to transition into the commercial world. We get it. We’ve not only been there, we never left. We have made a lifelong dedication to our own education and hope to continue to share that with everyone we can. We Understand That People Learn Differently Some people learn best in a lecture based environment, while others do better in a more intimate hands-on setting. We don’t think you should have to choose one or the other, which is why we have combined the best of both worlds. We have both lecture based presentations and a full day of break-out sessions. We Care We pour our heart and soul into this event every year. Our goals are the same as the day we started. We will continue to do everything in our power to keep growing this community, to offer the best educational resource possible, and to create the best environment possible to foster personal and professional growth. We Listen We not only listen to feedback but we recognize it as an invaluable source of information to make sure we are always improving. We not only listen to feedback from attendees, presenters, and our staff but we act on it.

  14. Hi everyone! I just moved to New York, and I'm working as a cinematographer at the moment (mainly assisting, but I had a few projects where I did the cinematography on my own). I wish to learn more about lighting with low budget. Because of the financial crisis, a lot of the projects lately have a very small budget, and I want to be able to learn better how to work with this. Can anyone recommend me a good workshop (or something like that) where I can learn this? Share your experiences with me! :D Thanks a lot!
  15. Join me in a workshop I am teaching on Feb. 16th titled "Lighten Up: Doing More with Less without Compromise." The subject is how to get the most out of todays lighting instruments. The poor Power Factor of HMIs, Kinos, & LEDs have been vexing set electricians for years. For more information about the adverse effects these loads can have on generators and power distribution systems, and how to remedy them so that you can operate bigger, or more small, lights on portable generators or house power than has ever been possible before take this workshop. As part of the same workshop series, New England Studios, Talamas Broadcast, and Production Hub will be sponsoring a workshop on “Video Lighting Design” by L.D. Richard Cadena on Feb. 9th. Noted Focal Press Author, ETCP Trainer, and Founder of the Academy of Production Technology, Richard’s workshops are both lively and informative.
