Filmmakers know, ARRI’s ALEXA is everywhere: on film shoots from The Bourne Ultimatum to Quantum of Solace, and on TV episodic sound stages like Lie to Me, In Plain Sight, and Law and Order UK.
A compact, lightweight and affordable digital camera, ALEXA redefines the limits of motion picture capture with ultra-fast workflows and image quality akin to 35mm film.
Students in the one-week class work directly with ARRI and Panavision training representatives to learn the industry’s finest digital and film cameras from every angle.
"In this transitional period between film and digital production, training with both media formats is essential to a well-informed and trained camera crew," says veteran workshop instructor, Doug Hart. "This workshop has always enjoyed great support from Arriflex and Panavision, continuing this year with the presence of their top-of-the-line digital cameras for our students to work with, as well as their top 35mm Film Cameras."
The Film & Digital Camera Assistant workshop is at the core of Maine Media’a spring Cinematography Residency Program: the 12-week sequence starts with Basic Lighting & Grip and 16mm Film Production, includes Steadicam and 3D Cinematography training, and wraps with Russell Carpenter’s Director of Photography Master Class.
