by planetmitchLeave a Comment

We interviewed Jem Schofield (from theC47.com) last year on the planet5D live show (see replay below) – and we're pleased to present some new HDSLR training he's doing. First, in March, he's doing Cleverscope Presents: Lighting, Shooting and Editing with HD-DSLRs (registration) and then in July, he's doing another 2 week “the filmmaker's intensive” workshop.

We've added this to the planet5D international HDSLR event calendar!

Lighting, Shooting and Editing with HD-DSLRs

More info on this HDSLR class is here: Cleverscope Presents: Lighting, Shooting and Editing with HD-DSLRs (registration)

Videographers are clearly in the midst of two revolutions: tapeless recording (P2, XD Cam and Memory Cards) and the use of the hybrid still/video camera (HDSLR). If you’re one of the many videographers focused on the new HDSLR’s then this three-day workshop is for you. Talk to any budding filmmaker and you’ll learn more about this evolution which has sparked a lot of interest in cameras like the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, the new Canon EOS 7D and the Nikon D90. But producing content with these cameras comes with certain challenges. In this workshop you’ll learn how to light, shoot and edit with these cameras to create great content and over come any challenges.

Among the topics covered:

• HD-DSLR overviews and popular models.

• Best shooting practices, shortcomings and workarounds.

• Shooting video like film.

• Double-System audio.

• Camera support systems and “tricking out” your DSLR.

• Lenses, adapters and how to use them.

• Transcoding and ingesting.

• Editing and output.

• Easy setups and proven workflow techniques.



the filmmaker's intensive

The program will run from July 23rd – August 6th, 2011. There are only 32 spaces.

The Filmmaker's Intensive is a two week intense (and we mean intense), program that takes you out of your day to day environment and focuses you directly on the art & science of narrative filmmaking. The program was designed specifically to allow each person that attends to learn true fictional filmmaking from pre-production to post.

What makes the program unique?

Top, working, industry professionals teaching the craft of filmmaking and the opportunity to work directly with actors as an integral part of The Filmmaker's Intensive. This allows for true collaborative filmmaking to occur. Just like in the real world!

Not only will you be mastering the art of filmmaking from the technical side, you will be learning about acting and how to work with actors in way very few filmmakers ever have the opportunity to experience in a learning environment.

The program isn't for everyone. It's for qualified individuals that want to learn narrative filmmaking and really up their game!

Sound like you? If so, fill out the application form on the site and we'll contact you to discuss the program more in depth.
