Upcoming Workshops

Time-Lapse Filmmaking and Beyond with DSLRs


DATE: Saturday, October 4; TIME 11:00AM – 4:00PM (with ½ hour break); SUMMER 2014

Instructor: Richard Power Hoffman
Fee: $75.

Over the past several years, Richard Power Hoffmann has perfected a technique using a digital still camera exclusively to make films. This unique storytelling approach takes advantage of today's low cost yet high resolution DSLR cameras to acquire better than HD resolution imagery, and then dynamically manipulate it in post-production. Hoffmann will discuss how and why he has gravitated to this technique, and take the class through the process of using sequential photography, time-lapse, and making movies with stills in the hands-on portion of the class. Bring your own camera, and bring images to life!
