Filmmaking Masterclass with Philip Bloom
Kinocchio presents a two day Masterclass with DOP, Director and Filmmaker Philip Bloom, that will be held on August 31st – September 1st 2013, in the beautiful location of the Groggia Theatre in Venice, during the 70th Venice Film Festival.
The Masterclass is limited to only 20 participants. This is an intense hands on two days where an enormous amount is covered. Not just cameras like DSLRs, low budget large sensor camcorders, but all aspects of low budget production and how they all are combined to help you tell your story which of course is the most important part! Each attendee is set an actual filmmaking challenge on the first day so some experience is essential both in shooting and in editing.
This is a unique opportunity to be part of a really special learning experience and the first time Philip Bloom has held his acclaimed two day workshop in Italy so don’t miss out!

ABOUT PHILIP BLOOM
Philip Bloom is a world-renowned filmmaker who, for the past 7 years of his 24-year career has specialised in creating incredible film-like images with low budget video. His most iconic work is created with Canon DSLRs. As one of the biggest evangelists for their use in productions his website became the place to go to for budding filmmakers as well as experienced ones keen to embrace the new technology. His site now regularly has over 1,000,000 visitors a month.
His use of Canon DSLRs to shoot part of Lucasfilms’ last movie ‘Red Tails’ proved a huge point to the naysayers. This technology was proved very viable in large-scale productions.
Philip has kept up with the advent of newer tools like the C300, F3, FS700, Blackmagic and 1DC, using them in various productions and undertaking in depth video reviews, which have helped many people in the huge decision of buying a camera.
He has worked for all the major UK broadcasters, such as the BBC, ITV, C4 and Sky, as well as many others around the world including CBS, Discovery, FOX and NBC.
Independent projects are key to Philip and he mostly works in this field now. One of his most successful projects was ‘How To Start A Revolution’ which won a BAFTA in 2012 and was also awarded prizes at several film festivals including Best Documentary at the 2011 Raindance festival.
Currently Philip is working on various documentary and fiction projects and much more besides. He is constantly stretching his creative abilities whilst still taking time to keep his website relevant and touring the world teaching young and old filmmakers better techniques. Not just through technology but through better storytelling skills. His workshops have been an enormous success around the world and he will continue to run them for as long as possible as learning never stops!
