[Update Tuesday morning: sold out; no more spaces left.] HDR involves fundamental changes in how we think about exposing, grading, and delivering images, yet we’re still in the dark about best practices and practical considerations. AbelCine in Burbank will shed some light on the topic Tuesday, as will Deluxe in NYC on Wednesday.
Tuesday, 17 May at 6:30pm in Burbank CA, AbelCine and colorist Dado Valentic present an hour-long seminar, The Merits of the New High Dynamic Range, followed by hands-on with HDR-oriented gear.
This evening event will consist of a one hour seminar that takes a look at the HDR production chain, followed by a Q&A. You will see first hand the content and what it takes to create and deliver a production in HDR. Once you glance at an HDR TV screen you won’t need any convincing – images look better, fresher, and more exciting! If 3D was interesting for its novelty and 4K advantages were not visible to all, it is clear to see that HDR is in a category of it’s own. The only question is, how long will it take before ‘Premium’ becomes the norm?
Manufacturers such as Canon, Sony, Atomos, SmallHD and others will be on hand with some of their newest products so that attendees can get a closer look at how HDR can affect their workflow, both on-set and in post.
6:30 – 7:00pm Check-in. Manufacturers will be set up on the showroom floor with their gear. (Food & drink will be served.)

8:00 – 8:30pm Hands on time with gear in the showroom.

The Usual Disclaimer: Nobody paid me to to publicize this event and there’s no material connection between me and AbelCine or Dado Valentic. And as I’m over two hours away as the CRJ700 flies, I can’t even drop by just to partake of the food & drink, either. So if you’re going, have a pastry for me.
