26th November 2014
Menacing storm clouds gather over a dusty track in "Tornado Alley" USA. They might form a super-cell. They might form a Tornado. Or they might not. Either way, they are one of the most exhilarating and fascinating meteorological phenomena's the world has to offer. Recording them, currently in 4K, is one of Alister Chapman's passions. He's coming to Prokit on 17th. December 2014, to talk to you about his experiences as a Filmaker and Adventurer.
His other passion is the Aurora Borealis.
ALISTER CHAPMAN'S MASTERCLASS, THE CHANGING FACE OF DIGITAL CINEMATOGRAPHY, FEATURING THE SONY PXW-FS7.
We all know the world of digital cinematography has changed radically in the last few years. The range of tools available to filmmakers has never been greater, even relatively low cost DSLRs now come with the image quality and tools to make great films. So, if the DSLRs are so good why bother with the bigger and more expensive cameras?
Presenter, Adventurer and Filmmaker, Alister Chapman, will take an in-depth look at the pros and cons of the cameras available to filmmakers, with sample footage and film clips from all the cameras.
He will feature the exciting new SONY PXW-FS7.
Alister will also demystify Gamma and colourspace; both are fundamental to getting great pictures. In this part of the Masterclass Alister will offer you a better understanding of how gamma works. You will find it easier to understand how using different gamma curves, picture profiles or scene files affect your workflow and the final images.
The cost of attending the day is £50 + vat. Please register here: https://www.prokit.com/…/alister-chapman%3a-the-changing-fac…
