Enrolment is limited to: 

During this intensive hands-on workshop, participants will explore the features of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and its workflow, as well as the flexible rigging options that can be customized to suit a wide variety of stylistic approaches to cinematography. After years of being the forerunner for all digital formats through their post-production systems such as DaVinci Resolve and state-ofthe-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 (BMCC). With its 2.5K resolution sensor, the BMCC 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.


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 and Introduction to Digital Colour Grading with DaVinci Resolve workshops.



Jorge Manzano’s award winning films, City of Dreams and Johnny Greyeyes have screened at the Sundance Film Festival, and The Letter was broadcast on Movieola and CHCH. His screenplay, The Strike, was a quarter finalist for the Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting and was shortlisted for the Sundance Film Festival screenwriting lab and the Tribecca Institutes All Access Program. In addition to producing, directing and screenwriting, Jorge has lensed dramatic and documentary films. Currently in post-production, the documentary The Water Guardians, gives voice to the Mapuche indigenous communities fighting for autonomy, ancestral land rights and cultural re-vindication in Southern Chile and was filmed on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.
