Digital Film Making Workshop – Dubai.

alister-wb Digital Film Making Workshop - Dubai.I’m running a digital film making workshop in Dubai, December 15/16th 2017.

This 1.5 day course will take you through composition, lighting, and exposure (including color, gamma and exposure index) as well as post production including different grading techniques including LUT’s, S-Curves and color managed workflows. It will focus on how to create high quality, film-like images using the latest digital techniques. It will also cover one of the hotest topics right now which is HDR.

Day 2 will include practical sessions where different shooting techniques can be tested to compare how they effect the end result.

Just a very quick note that the last UK event of the Sony Pro Tour for 2017 will be in Glasgow on Thursday the 7th of December. I’ll be there to answer any questions and to give an in depth seminar on HDR including how to shoot HDR directly with the Sony cameras that feature Hybrid Log Gamma.

Webinar Recordings.

In case you missed the webinars I presented yesterday here are recordings of the 2 afternoon sessions. The first one on HDR, what is it and what does it mean for you. The second is a question and answers session on Sony’s large sensor cameras, from the FS5 to the F55. There were quite a few a6300 and A7s questions thrown in there too!

Hopefully I will be able to find a sponsor that will be able to make these a regular event.

 

Free Webinar Day – July 26th 2016.

On Tuesday the 26th of July I will be hosting a series of free live webinars giving you the chance to ask me questions about many of the things I write about here. This is a trial run, I’ve done webinars for many people in the past and they have always gone down well, but these webinars are going to come live from xdcam-user HQ.

If they are a success I will make this a regular event with a webinar day once a month with new subjects covered each time as well as an open Q&A session.  This will give you the chance to ask questions on any aspect of video production, so start thinking about what you want to ask.

If you haven’t attended a webinar before here is how it works: You log in online to the webinar using the link provided. You will hear me and any guest presenters and see any pre-prepared information slides that I have on your computer/tablet/phone screen.  You ask questions by typing them into a question box, nobody will see or hear you. I will try to respond to as many questions as I can within the one hour time limit. The session will also be recorded and can be downloaded later if you wish. There are dedicated online versions of the webinar page for computers, tablets and smart phones, so you should be able to log in almost anywhere where you have an internet connection.

There will be 2 webinars where I will take questions on any of the Sony large sensor cameras, including the FS5, FS7, F5 and F55.  If you want to know about settings, exposure, LUT’s, slow mo, lenses or anything else you can ask me on the 26th. These are timed so that there is an opportunity for people in most countries around the world  to join one or the other at a sensible time of day.
