June is our 7th anniversary meeting so come and celebrate with us as we look at both sides of the equation production & post!

HD, 4K and the Future of Production…

Small sensor, large sensor, HD, 2K, UHD, 4K, Log, Raw?

Choosing the right camera is an extremely overwhelming process. There are so many form factors, features and choices that it can make you downright dizzy!

How do I approach lighting for HD & 4K productions with these new digital camera jem_hs2systems?

In this presentation, Jem Schofield will talk about what these choices really mean so that you can walk away understanding what you should be looking for in a camera system and in lighting solutions for modern productions to achieve cinematic results in documentary, corporate and narrative productions.

While it may seem that there are an infinite number of choices, they can be broken down into more simplified categories to help you make the right decisions for your productions.

Jem Schofield is the founder of theC47, an online and offline educational resource focused on teaching the craft of video production and filmmaking (with production based workshops taught throughout the United States and abroad). He is a producer, DP, director & educator and also runs The Filmmaker’s Intensive, a program that focuses on the art & science of documentary & narrative filmmaking.

For the past 19 years his production company has produced projects for an ever expanding client base. Clients include AbelCine, Apple, Inc., Canon U.S.A. Inc., Cineo Lighting, EMI, Manfrotto, Motley Fool, The New York Times, NPR, Quiet Revolution, Scottish Enterprise, TED, Tiffen, Wescott & Zeiss.
