This coming weekend in LA at the PhotoCine EXPO, the guys who brought you the Cardboard Warfare clip will be hosting a panel of cutting edge filmmakers who will share their secrets for achieving visual effects on shoestring budgets.
And don't forget about the planet5D breakfast!
From the photocinenews site:
“Along with Clint, Jeremy Thomas will host this panel of cutting edge filmmakers who will share their secrets for achieving visual effects on shoestring budgets. Jeremy and his VFX Supervisor Kris Cabrerra will discuss how they achieved the amazing effects in his short film â€œChrysalisâ€. The panel is rounded out by the group of young filmmakers behind â€œModern Warfare: Frozen Crossingâ€œ, Sam Gorski, Niko Pueringer, Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch. Donâ€™t miss this exciting panel at the PhotoCine Expo which is sure to become the most talked about HDSLR filmmaking event of the year.”
PhotoCine Expo presents VFX for Guerilla Filmmakers on Sunday Sept 26th with Clint Jones. With no budget and only a Canon T2i and kit lens, Clint pulled off a creative action short called Cardboard Warfare that went viral on YouTube. PhotoCineNews wanted to see what he could do with some support so we got together with Redrock Micro and Duclos Lenses to send him gear to make a sequel for our HDSLR filmmaking expo. Cardboard Warfare 1.5 is the result and it will world premiere at the Expo on September 26th 2010. The film was shot on Canon 5D MkII with Redrock Micro Support rigs, Zeiss Lenses and the Duclos cinema modified 11-16mm Tokina.
The PhotoCine Expo is being held at the Los Angeles Film School and is the only event of it's kind with a laser focus on HDSLR Filmmaking. Speakers include Shane Hurlbut, Rodney Charters, SNL Film Unit DP Alex Buono, Liam Finn and Vincent Laforet. PhotoCineNews.com/Expo
