Tradeshows are back in season and well underway for 2013. Gulf Photo Plus is quickly approaching and they’re offering a slew of workshops from seasoned photographers including some of our pals like Joe McNally and Eduardo Angel. Eduardo helped us at NAB a couple years ago and even joined us for a some friendly (yet competitive) Vegas go-karting (hilarity ensued). Anyway, check out the description for Eduardo’s workshop below (along with video) and head over the the GPP workshop page for the complete list of presenters and other information.
The emergence of HD Video in still cameras has opened up a new world to photographers and cinematographers. For photographers, journalists, film students and visual artists, HD video in a DSLR camera has widened the creative palette for visual expression, bringing together photography, video andmultimedia.
Here’s Eduardo explaining what you’ll learn in this 3-day workshop:
In this groundbreaking workshop, participants will experience the process of filmmaking in three dayswith the visual storyteller, educator and technology consultant Eduardo Angel. The workshop will focuson helping still photographers make the transition to build a solid foundation in filmmaking terms andtechniques. Applying the principles of narrative filmmaking with HDSLR systems, Eduardo will tackle thetechnical issues as well as the creative power of this technology.
The workshop will cover the basics of filmmaking including lighting, camera movement, sound, andequipment. Eduardo and the students will collaborate as a small film crew to plan, shoot, and edit a short film. Each team member will have the opportunity to experience different roles as director, director ofphotography (DP), camera operator, grip and audio technician. The emphasis will be on reinforcing thetheory behind the technique; understanding the equipment and processes rather than concentrating on afinished product.
