Independent filmmakers now have several options for high-end cameras and digital workflows that can create motion pictures with a look that rivals productions made with much larger budgets. This workshop is a hands-on introduction to the leading professional packages of Sony F65, Arri Alexa, and RED Epic. There is discussion and demonstration of camera operation, the advantages and limitations of different cameras, capture formats, data management (basic treatment of raw footage and transcoding options), and postproduction workflow. The instructor, a digital media expert, leads the discussions and brings the latest equipment packages for in-class testing. Students have an opportunity to shoot footage and process the data in class and, by the end of the workshop, should be able to make informed decisions about shooting and posting with these cameras and workflows on their own projects. Credit sudents must submit a project dossier within one week of the last day of class.

This course is open to BPATS BA/BS Media Studies, BA/BS Liberal Arts, and minor in Film Production students only. All other undergraduate students may request permission three (3) weeks before the start of the course by emailing
