It’s only about two weeks until the first Filmmaking Masterclass in 2012 is going to take place in Las Vegas and few days later in Key West, Florida. After that they’ll kick it again in June: Mallorca, Spain.
What is it?
The Filmmaking Masterclass is a unique kind of workshop. Three full days. Intensive hands-on shooting. Exclusive locations. You MAKE a film!
The tutors will teach you the intricate details of practical shooting in a truly unique setting.
It’s about getting the best out of your equipment, but especially developing your skills. It’s about techniques, which cannot be learned from a book or the Internet.
There is hardly anyone doing more camera workshops than Philip Bloom – he is constantly traveling the world, sharing his knowledge.
So it is pretty remarkable Philip said of last year’s Majorca Masterclass, “Seriously best workshop ever. Theory, shooting and post. Had such fun. Thanks to everyone. Six great films!!”
There will be seminars on various subjects of commercial filmmaking – of course also about the cameras, featuring the new crop of large sensor cameras.
You will be able to try and compare some of these cameras on the spot, and you will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of each! But gear is just a small element of what these Masterclasses are about…
They encourage aspiring DPs, directors, and people who shoot films for a living (or strive to do so) to come and join them. They say they will not be covering basics, but that it will be an intermediary and advanced workshop.
Attendees will receive detailed digital textbooks before the course starts, containing all the concentrated basics for large-sensor cameras and HDSLR filmmaking. This leaves more time focusing on advanced shooting techniques and practical shooting during each Masterclass.
Gear to win
After the general course part is over they’ll do a raffle for some of the gear that was used – worth a total of $7,000 – which were donated by their sponsors Vitec Videocom and Kessler. More info on that here.
Depending on the location, the Masterclasses are focusing on different themes, with additional seminars . Click on the individual dates & locations to learn more: Las Vegas, Key West, Mallorca.
