CANON CINEMA with SNL's Alex Buono

In the world of film and television, there is no deadline more unmovable than when you hear those magical words, “Live from New York, It’s Saturday Night!”. As a 14-year veteran of the Saturday Night Live Film Unit, Alex Buono must deliver high-end commercial parodies and short films in as few as 24 hours, and he will share with you how shooting with Canon DSLRs, along with the new Canon C300, has revolutionized the way he works.

Topics covered will include an extensive setup primer: discussing shutter speeds, frame rates, aspect ratios, camera settings, and vital production gear. Alex will also cover his workflow — both on-set and in post production.

Whether you are a still photographer looking to transition into video production or a veteran cinematographer looking to embrace new technology, this lecture will provide a comprehensive introduction into this brave new world of camera technology.
