Shane Hurlbut, ASC will be conducting an HDSLR Boot Camp this upcoming August 28th and 29th, 2010. The class is not cheap at $3250.00. However, Mr. Hurlbut is one of the top HDSLR shooters in the world. Shane promises a five to one teacher to student ratio. Here is a quote from the Boot Camp website of what you can expect if you take this class.
“Shoot in a pre-lit studio space with an actress. Set up the Canon cameras on a dolly, tape out lenses and practice pulling focus at low f-stops. Build a video village for a hypothetical client and director. Record, download and send to editorial with proper labeling. Save time on the set with accurate media management workflow.
Prep for a location shoot. Build a handheld configuration and set up wireless video to a director’s monitor. Shoot a walk and talk with an actress. Reconfigure to man cam mode for cut aways. Learn a variety of still and cinema style lenses with ND filtration. Save footage to hard drive and view it later in a screening room.”
