I (Alister Chapman) am a cameraman and producer with over 30 years of experience in broadcast television, corporate video and commercial production. I was a founding member of the Sony ICE (Independent Certified Expert) programme. I provide workshops and seminars across the world for Universities, production companies and individuals (see my guide to training costs at the bottom of the page).
I run everything from simple 1 or 2 hour seminars to multi-day, hands-on film production workshops covering almost everything you need to know to shoot a film. As a working Cinematographer my skills are current and up to date. I am well known for my expertise at taking often difficult concepts and making them easy to understand.
As well as hosting events and workshops for 3rd parties I run a number of educational expeditions and workshops throughout the year.
In the winter I take groups up to Norway to shoot the Northern Lights. In the early summer there are opportunities to go storm chasing in the USA. Contact me for more information about these expeditions of a lifetime.
Private workshops and Individual Training.
Looking for individual training or a private workshop? I can provide tailored workshops to fit your needs. The training is industry relevant from a highly regarded industry professional (me), not some tutor that hasn’t worked in production for decades. My rates are very reasonable starting at just $950 (£750) per day. I charge the same whether there is just one person or 100 people, so feel free to club together with colleges to share the costs. In addition to my day rate, if travel is involved you must cover my travel expenses, hotel and subsistence. I will only fly long haul in Premium Economy or business class and hotels must be 3 star or better. For a full quote please use the contact form.
