Video Camera Training

Two exciting filmmaking workshops in Tassie

with cinematographer Pieter de Vries ACS - Hobart, Saturday & Sunday 8th & 9th July 2017

The weekend features two linked workshops. With the focus on documentary making, Pieter de Vries will share the techniques that have made him one of the leading documentary cinematographers in the world.

Come on the Saturday or the Sunday. Attending both days ensures that you take with you, a total production experience that will round out or add to your existing filmmaking skills. You will be inspired and keen to try out new creative techniques.


Both days are suitable for

Personnel required to produce video for their company
Journalists keen to shoot their own news stories
Photographers wanting to port their skills to video
Shooter/Producers who plan to shoot documentaries
Video Bloggers using affordable equipment
Anyone who enjoys shooting video

 SATURDAY  the story

Current video cameras are capable of capturing stunning images resulting in a comparatively technically even playing field. However presenting a compelling story is not only about image quality - few people in an audience have an emotional response to impressive image resolution. Good audio also, is absolutely critical.

The essential element of a good video presentation is simply, The Story. It follows that priority should be placed on coming up with good ideas and devising engaging sequences. These ideas form the kernel of the day.

Along with cinematographers, directors and producers will also find this workshop of benefit. Having a clearer understanding of camera and audio equipment can be incredibly helpful.


 SUNDAY  the camera

This workshop studies shooting-for-the-edit techniques, lens choices, camera movement and audio options. Pieter will also update you on the latest camera features, accessories and gadgets.

S-Log2, S-Log3, C-Log, Cine EI, applying LUT's, shooting HDR, 4K and RAW capture using Atomos external recorders - on it goes. This is a great opportunity to have answers to every question you ever had.

The day is not all pixels, sensors, menus and dials. Tips on the use of available light and discover the cinematography lighting techniques that have kept Pieter at the top of his craft for over thirty five years. Which camera you have is unimportant - the quality your video does not depend on the model camera that you use.
