About the Event
It can be overwhelming to choose the right camera to make your film look cinematic as an indie filmmaker. Maybe you have shot a few shorts with your iPhone or DSLR and you want to up-level with your next film but you are not sure where to start. Do rent a super expensive Arri Alexa or can you get a comparable look with a less expensive camera and the right lens. Should you try to rent an anamorphic lens or are they out of your league. Maybe all of this sounds foreign to you and you just want to have a better understanding of how to shoot a film and make it look good, period!!! If you are a director it is important for you to understand camera and lens so you can relay to your cinematographer your cinematic vision.
