This coming Tuesday, June 22, I’ll be hosting a free webinar discussing DSLR post-production. The program will kick off at 10:00 AM Pacific, Noon Central time and run for approximately 90 minutes. It’s free to attend the event, all you have to do is register.
UPDATE: This webinar is now available On Demand for $25. Click here to purchase the webinar and other supporting materials.
The event is part of a website called New Media Webniars. I was approached by the company’s founder and CEO earlier in the year after I had finished my NAB Post Pit presentation about editing a 5D Multi-camera concert. We were discussing doing a similar presentation at New Media Webinars but since those who buy the On-Demand version of the webinar after its over get footage and project files included we decided we probably wouldn’t be able to include the music and artist images from the concert so we decided on a more general DSLR Post Workflows presentation. That’s what we’ll be presenting this Tuesday.
Here’s a sample, an beginning overview of the Canon EOS Log and Transfer plug-in for Final Cut Pro:
We’ll be discussing a number of topics in the hour long presentation including what comes out of the camera, transcoding the files for edit, software for transcoding the files, editing software including Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, native H.264 editing vs. transcoded file editing and some advanced topics like offline vs. online, color grading and frame rates. And there will be some prize giveaways as well including copies of Magic Bullet Grinder and Singular Software’s PluralEyes. Once the hour long session is over and the prizes are given away there will be a question and answer session as well to round out the 90 minutes.
While it’s free to attend the event the real value comes with the $25 purchase of the of the entire Webinar package. It includes (from the New Media Webinar’s website):
Includes attendance to the live webinar, a downloadable HD version of the webinar archive, an audio podcast with the presenter answering questions not answered during the webinar and the project files used during the webinar for you to practice along with the presenter.
That’s some good info for $25. If you’re new to DSLR filmmaking in general (or if you’re thinking about getting into DSLRs) then you can purchase both the DSLR Post Workflows webinar I’m doing as well as DSLR Filmmaking Production Reality Check. It was recently completed and hosted by Peter Cote, host of the DSLR Show. That’s a pretty good bargain, for $50 you can get over 3 hours of content, 2 audio podcasts and support files and materials. It’s a great way to get your feet wet in DSLR filmmaking or to learn something new.
As for the DSLR Filmmaking Post Workflows event this Tuesday, it will be a great event and full of a lot of information as there’s a lot to cover about post in an hour. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth, especially if you are just getting started in the DSLR revolution. I hope to see you there.
