Canon details

Canon U.S.A.’s Live Learning events are in full swing for the Spring season, highlighted by the upcoming “Deconstructing the Story” workshops for professional and advanced cinematographers, photographers and videographers. These three day, hands-on sessions provide intensive learning opportunities designed to demonstrate improved techniques for shooting successful video projects with Canon EOS HD DSLR cameras. During the opening day, foundations of EOS cine-style production techniques are taught in intimate student breakout groups. That’s followed by a full day of student shooting in a 24-hour film festival style, topped off by a final day of editing; all provided from the experts of the renowned stillmotion™ team, a group of leading innovators in the use of EOS HD video products, along with Canon professional market representatives.

Designed for professional and advanced EOS HD DSLR users, participants of these workshops will receive instruction from stillmotion assisted by Canon team members. As part of the workshops, students will have the opportunity to work with an assortment of Canon camera bodies and lenses along with the supporting production accessories to make the experience as impactful as possible. Students will work in small groups immersing themselves in each aspect of video production with EOS while receiving guidance on the technical and creative aspects to ensure the final result is worthy of new client interest.

  1. Don’t you think that you are getting to ahead of yourself with all those workshops for “advanced” cinematographers given by a bunch of wedding videographers and canon pushers???
    Canon is good and stillmotion are successful but don’t inflate your position!
