An important role in itself, camera assisting offers an opportunity to work with professional cinematographers. Using LIFT’s digital Sony F3 camera learn the theory and practice of camera assisting in this one evening intensive workshop. Participants will learn lens testing, camera setup, labeling, slating, focus pulling, as well as on set protocols for digital cameras. With this hands-on introductory workshop, participants will have time to build, operate and break down a camera setup, to practice some of the duties of a camera assistant and put aspects of cinematography theory into practice.

The Camera Theory workshop or equivalent experience is required as a prerequisite to this workshop. This course is recommended as a companion to Blackmagic Cinema Camera and RED Epic Camera workshops.
