FA Seminar Series: Oct. 18th - Demystifying Camera Technology

Canon and Samy's Camera Present The Filmmakers Alliance Seminar Series:

Demystifying Camera Technology

with Alex Buono

Saturday, October 18th
11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Canon Hollywood Professional Technology And Support Center
6060 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90028


Noted cinematographer/lecturer Alex Buono (SNL, Bigger Stronger Faster) presents a seminar geared toward a general, non-technical filmmaker audience to help us better understand how to make the right camera choice for our projects and best utilize the technologies available to us.  Subjects covered include:

• bit depth

• color subsampling

• compression codecs

• dynamic range

• dual-pixel focus assist

• image sensors & debayering

• 4K versus 2K

• 4K workflow

If you're terrified by or ignorant (or both) of any of these terms, this is the seminar for you. All of the info will be presented to you in a way even your grandmother can understand (assuming your grandmother is not the former Larry, now Lana, Wachowski). Give yourself the gift of deeper insight into arguably the single most important tool in succcessfully developing and executing your film's visual strategy.

The day's schedule:
11:00 a.m. - Doors open (networking, refreshments)
12:00-12:15 - An overview of Canon in cinema with Tim Smith
12:15-1:15 - Alex Buono Demystifies camera technology
1:15-1:30 - Q&A
1:30-2:00 - Networking, Wrap-up

All attendies receive a $50 gift card from Samy's Camera to be disbursed at the end of the seminar.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Attendance is free, but space MUST be reserved in advance!! In fact, due to LA's notorious RSVP attrition, we've intentionally opened up more seats than are available, so seating can ONLY be guaranteed to the first 75 who arrive - even if you RSVP'd.

Parking is on street, but there should be plenty of it!

See you all there!!
