Previous Workshop
LOS ANGELES, California
December 14 - 18, 2010
Five Days (Tuesday - Saturday)

RED Digital Cinema is hosting this comprehensive, high-end, hands-on workshop, which is designed to remove the mystery from the rapidly developing world of Stereographic 3D Cinematography. Santa Fe International's experienced professionals provide a detailed guide to latest generation of 3D rigs and tools available and how best to use those tools to create high-quality 3D images.

Working with the newest lineup of RED cameras, including the much-anticipated Scarlet, studio exercises will familiarize you with rig configuration, camera setup, lenses, monitors, convergence, depth-of-field, lighting, motion, 3D recording, digital media, software, plus on-set and post workflow. Classroom sessions include the roles of the DP, Stereographer, Puller and Colorist, along with 3D basics, terminology, equipment choices and budgeting.

This workshop is designed for DPs, Stereographers, Operators, ACs and DITs looking to familiarize themselves with the latest technical and creative information available on these advanced systems, presented face-to-face by leading industry experts - many of whom were involved in 3D product design and development. The workshop also accommodates Directors, Producers, Production Managers and those interested in understanding the latest in Stereoscopic 3D Cinematography systems, creative capabilities, production techniques, on-set and post production workflow, deliverables and presentation.

Applicants must be experienced film and/or video professionals familiar with high-end production techniques.  Attendance is limited to provide for maximum experience during hands-on sessions and one-on-one time with leading industry experts. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
