Marco Solorio Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Events Leave a Comment

We’re Atlanta bound! Join us next week as we travel to Atlanta, Georgia for a 2-day Cinema Camera workshop, presented by Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media at the facility of Biscardi Creative Media. Seats are still available for both days and can be purchased here at eventbrite.

March 29-30, 2013. 9:15 AM to 5:00 PM, both days.

So what’s in store for this workshop? A TON. Here are all the details.

This workshop will teach you the ins and outs of the Cinema Camera, give you an edge over your competition, quickly learn the camera’s full potential, get inside knowledge not available anywhere else, shorten your workflow learning curve, and improve your business’ bottom line through knowledge and action. Marco has been using the camera in all forms of production since mid-2012: short film (our current short film in production “NEXUS”), feature documentary (our current BMW documentary in production), commercial, corporate, PSA, stock footage acquisition, event production, visual effects, instructional, chromakey, and best of all, just for fun! Marco will be sharing his breadth of Cinema Camera knowledge in this information-packed workshop.

The first day is geared for shooters of all backgrounds. We’ll have three live shooting setups to show how the camera works in different environments.

The second day is geared toward anyone in post-production that will soon have a flurry of this footage to deal with. Sign up for both days to save money to get a full circle of Cinema Camera production and post-production knowledge.

We’re keeping this limited to a very small group of attendees, so this 2-day event only holds 24 seats per day — act soon to ensure your spot! All registered participants will also gain access to Marco’s private Cinema Camera Facebook page that is not publicly linked or viewable. Lunch will also be provided on both days.

Thanks to our Sponsors, attendees will have huge give-away opportunities: A full license of Davinci Resolve, an UltraStudio Mini Monitor, an UltraStudio Mini Recorder an FSI LM-2140W Monitor, and ALL attendees will be given a $200 off gift certificate that can be used on any FSI monitor purchase!
