next Red Camera Workshop in Berlin Sept 25-27

Workshop in Berlin on Aug 27th

We are offering 3-day workshops on weekends, which start on friday at 10 with a full day of theoretical background about the modern digital cameras. We discuss the different philosophies and approaches which the manufacturers take, and their implications for the cinematographer.


We work in small groups, so there is room for discussions and you will get answers which are relevant to your next film project. In the afternoon, there will be time to take a short look at the post production, editing, color grading, a short discussion of VFX and the DCI process which is becoming increasingly important.


On Saturday we take the Red One film camera out for a shoot. We will film a short film or trailer, with four or five different situations. If you have an appropriate storyboard, you can send it to workshop@business-tv-gmbh.de, we will be happy to evaluate it and may consider it for one of our future workshops.


Sunday is reserved for post production. We will review, select and edit the footage, then do a professional color grading on the edited scenes. VFX can be discussed and guidance can be given, but there may not be enough time to actually do them for the trailer.


Audio Editing, packaging, titles and DVD production are not part of the workshop, but if you are interested you can assist in that process as well. To reserve your place in one of the workshops, send email to workshop (at) business-tv-gmbh.de


The post production will take place in Berlin Tiergarten, Lützowstr. 102-104 near U-Bahn Kurfürstenstraße
