Learn to think like an Outdoor Cinematographer

There are no available registration dates at this time.

Spend the weekend documenting the beautiful natural scenery of Midcoast Maine, including coastal landscapes, forests, mountains, and rivers, all during the spectacular Fall Season!

Following brief initial lectures, the bulk of the weekend will be spent working hands-on in natural environments using professional digital cinema cameras. From wide landscapes to macro close-up, you will learn how to document scenes using an array of field techniques including high speed and time-lapse.

As this course will be shot entirely using natural lighting, you’ll learn to ‘find the light’ in your natural environment and produce the highest quality cinematic visuals. We will also dedicate time to digital workflow and best practices for processing the footage you shoot.

Lunch is included for both days, other meals are on your own. Lodging is available on campus, private room & bath.  $75/night
