Workshop Fee: $1295
Class Size: 16
In this hands-on workshop students learn the skills they need to set up and operate Sony’s super35mm 4K camcorders such as the FS7, FS5, Z280, Z150, Z90, F55 and others. This course is also an introduction to post-production workflows, archiving, and basic color grading techniques using DaVinci Resolve for Sony S-LOG and RAW. Designed for current and prospective owner/operators of Sony 4K camcorders, the course includes both classroom instruction and myriad opportunities for hands-on experience in real-world shooting scenarios.
This is an ideal course for owner/operators, corporate production staff, freelancers, government/military personnel, and anyone who wears multiple hats in the production of high-end video. Emphasis is on developing an understanding of shooting modes, camera operation, cinematic depth of field, recording formats, lens choices, menu options, scene file creation, working with S-LOG, exposure techniques, white balancing, methods of focusing, audio recording, high-speed slow-motion, time-lapse, and other essential production techniques. By the end of the week students will have gained comprehensive knowledge of Sony’s 4K camcorders and the confidence to operate these powerful cameras in a variety of production scenarios. Note: Students are encouraged to bring their own camcorder, laptop, and support gear if they choose, but it is not a requirement of the course.
