Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, announces two upcoming artemis camera stabilizer system workshops in the US. The first will be held in Chicago from September 25 to 29 at Atomic Imaging, Inc. studios. On December 5 to 8 the course will be held at RED Studios in Los Angeles.
The 4-day basic camera stabilizer system workshop is designed to guide attendees through setup of the modular artemis camera stabilizer system and its use in providing smooth camera moves in cinema and video productions.
The workshops begin with a theoretical introduction to basic professional operating and a presentation of the entire system. The program encompasses the professional configuration of the sled, vest and spring arm and provides valuable hands-on experience in practical situations. To perfect walking and dolly shots, special operation and walking techniques are taught and intensively practiced in the workshop under expert supervision. In-depth exercises, matched to the interests of the participants, complete the course. Additionally, the workshop participants will be prepared for the use of related tools like wireless lens controls, etc.
Artemis developer Curt O. Schaller will be on hand to personally guide workshop attendees through the basics of filming with the versatile Sachtler artemis camera stabilizer systems. And as head of Sachtler’s artemis development team, Schaller is in an excellent position to describe the latest innovations built into the artemis products, as well as what to expect in stabilizer designs in the future.
