Cinequipt Presents: Cameras for Independent Film

Starts May 2

1 session: Monday, May 2, 7–9 pm

When you have your script in hand and are entering pre-production, the next major consideration is choosing a camera for your shoot. Cameras for Independent Film offers a close-up look at some of the current top digital cinema cameras, including the popular Canon C100 and Sony FS7. Topics include: what to look for when selecting a camera, lens choices, 4K vs. 1080p, and renting vs. buying a camera. There will be samples of footage shot on different cameras, hands-on time with the C100, and time for Q & A about all things camera.

FREE: RSVP required at ifpmn.org/classes – space is limited
