EOS Moving Image Workshop – Beyond the Still
“The EOS Moving Image Workshop propels professional content creators into a world of artistic possibility through new technology that transcends the traditional boundaries between motion and still.
This hands-on workshop, lead by industry leaders who are actively using the Canon HD SLR technology, 5D Mark II, 7D and EOS-1D Mark IV in professional film and video productions, will include camera applications, menus, lighting, workflow and post production options. Balancing creative opportunity with technical understanding, this dynamic event is designed to quickly build skills that allow you to craft beautiful moving images that optimize the possibility of the technology.
Designed and presented in collaboration with Createasphere, this workshop includes facilitated presentations, hands-on coaching, guided shoots and an opportunity to learn from and collaborate with industry leadersâ€
Kristen from Canon also sent us this about the workshop:
“We max out on gear which makes the workshop really different from others. We allow students access to a variety of Canon prime lenses and third party gear to maximize the learning experience.
EOS Moving Image will have an 8:1 teacher:student ratio. We will have 8 working labs set up with everything one could need to start shooting on a pro level. The instructors are a combination of ASC members, industry leaders in HD with DSLRs and our own Canon Tech reps. Moving Image has also add Shane Hurlbut as a guest instructor on Day 1 – we are really excited about that. See his short ‘the Last 3 minutes' at Canon. â€
