Enrolment is limited to: 

After years of being the forerunner for all digital formats through their post-production systems such as DaVinci Resolve and state-of-the-art video cards, Blackmagic Design, formally a post-production software and hardware developer, decided to go to the next logical step: to bring a powerful, yet budget friendly camera into the digital cinema marketplace—the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.

This new and revolutionary camera with its 2.5K resolution sensor offers 13 stops of dynamic range and can hold most Canon DSLR lenses. Sporting a powerful processing unit, it can deliver your choice of glorious 12-Bit RAW CinemaDNG in a 4:4:4 color space, or 10-bit ProRes/DNxHD in 4:2:2. Utilizing solid-state hard drives as media storage, cinematographers can now seamlessly integrate their footage with Blackmagic’s own DaVinci Resolve colour correcting software thus offering one of the most flexible file-based workflows. During this intensive hands-on workshop, participants will explore the features of this powerful camera and workflow, as well as the flexible rigging options that can be customized to suit a wide variety of stylistic approaches to cinematography.

The Camera Theory workshop or equivalent experience is required as a prerequisite to this workshop. This course is recommended as a companion to the RED Epic Camera, Digital Workflows HD and RAW, Digital Imaging (DIT) and Introduction to Digital Colour Grading with DaVinci Resolve workshops.

In addition to producing, writing and directing, Jorge has lensed several documentary films in the last two years on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.
