I’m excited to partner with Dennis Ho and Digital Jungle for these courses and look forward to initiating and honing the skills of the next generation of RED professionals.
Hollywood, CA (Vocus) July 15, 2010
Digital Jungle, one of Hollywood’s top post-production and digital workflow studios, is teaming with RED ONE workflow tsar, Richard Salazar, for a new slate of RED training classes beginning July 30th and running on a continued basis thereafter.
The RED ONE program is broken into three levels of training consisting of “Levels I, II and III”, each of which are comprised of a three-day intensive course load that covers every aspect of RED, from camera operation to HD digital imaging tech support to post production workflow, all in a real-world interactive film production environment.
The workshops are geared toward Camera Assistants, Digital Imaging technicians (DIT), Data Wrangler Roles, Directors of Photography, Editors and Post-Production Supervisors that want to learn more about the art and science of RAW digital cinematography and its applications. The training includes camera tech, post-production, editorial, digital intermediate and color grading and will have frequent guest speakers throughout the workshop. Digital Jungle will have a RED camera on location with the new Mysterium X sensor, which combines low noise with superior charge capacity for dynamic range of 800ASA and color fidelity that allows filmmakers to finally have a no-excuse digital imaging alternative to shooting 35mm film. Additionally, fundamental 3D stereoscopic rigging instruction for the RED, as well as a broad overview of 3D post production workflow will be built into the program in subsequent sessions.
At the end of the workshop, trainees are required to pass an exit examination in order to receive a certificate confirming that they have taken and completed the Digital Jungle RED ONE program in camera operation and post workflow.
“There are very few facilities that have the experience, knowledge and technological capability to host comprehensive training for the RED ONE, and Digital Jungle is at the top of that short list,” said Richard Salazar. “I’m excited to partner with Dennis Ho and Digital Jungle for these courses and look forward to initiating and honing the skills of the next generation of RED professionals.”
