A Few Spots Left in an upcoming 5D MKII Workshop in Atlanta

I will be speaking at a conference and leading a workshop in Atlanta on October 3rd and 4th respectively.  (Go to the Canon Live Learning site here and select Atlanta as the city and pull down the menu to list my name if you are interested in learning more or to register.)

I’m sorry that I didn’t list this sooner – but the good news is that there are a few spots left as of this posting.

On Saturday you will get to meet three different Explorers (one of them being me) and get to hear us talk about our individual experiences with stills and video in what is a mini conference.   Bruce Dorn and Adam Jones will be the other two speakers – they’re great!  I will be showing both my still work and discuss my transition into video/film – including Reverie and the Jamie O’Brien “Fist Look” project which is still underway.

On Sunday I will lead around 16 students in an hands on demo of the Canon 5D MKII and it’s video performance.   We will split up into two teams – shooting a very short “short” – with students given the chance to direct, DP, operate the cameras, do sound, lighting etc.    We will discuss shooting a narrative video/film pieces and discuss how the 5D MKII fits into that type of production.   Then we will get together and do it a second time with a second group (this gives everyone a chance to “play”) and edit the two pieces in Final Cut Studio.   I will also give a quick intro into FCP’s Color software – to grade (or color correct) the footage.

This will be the third time I’m doing this workshop for Canon (we did one in NYC and another in LA) and I think it’s fair to say that students had a great time and learned quite a bit at both of the previous workshops.

You’ll get hands on experience with the RedRock Micro systems, Marshall Electronics and Ikan Monitors, Glidecam, LitePanel

and several other necessary gadgets.

The Saturday event is located at the Georgia World Congress Center – here (googlemaps link.) And Sunday’s event is at Studio Nine Hundred. UPDATE: Class is full sorry!
