  • With so many different cameras available today, how do you know which one to choose for your particular application. Do you work in a studio; do you shoot on location; do you have control over your lighting, or does your camera have to work in low light; which compression and file format works best for your application; what size sensor do you need; does the same camera work in run and gun situations and controlled set ups; what is your budget; should you consider a DSLR or a more traditional video camera. There are a lot of questions to be answered and this workshop will attempt to tell you everything you need to know about choosing the right camera for your application.

  • For years the workflow in most Television facilities was taken for granted—a expensive router switch sent signals all over the planet to where they were needed. Today there is technology available using the ethernet connections that are available in most businesses to do exactly the same thing at a fraction of the cost. This has revolutionized the design of new production facilities while saving the end user thousands of dollars in hardware costs. This workshop will explore the new techniques involved with facility design and discuss the plusses and minuses of video over IP.

  • So you have this great idea for a documentary, but you have no idea how to get your project financed, and once it is financed, how to make it. Our panelists have had this same experience, but they have lived to see their dreams become reality. They’ll take you through the challenges of finding interested parties, applying for grants, raising money, producing the finished product, and then finding a distributor. It’s a roadmap for success from documentary producers who share all the pot holes you’ll face along the way.
