3D Film Factory’s to give 3D seminar on the principles and art of stereoscopic filmmaking to the members of the local 600.
Burbank, California – the 3D Film Factory (3DFF) is set to conduct a comprehensive, day-long stereoscopic 3D training session for all members of the International Cinematographers guild (local 600) Saturday, June 18th. Several of 3DFF’s veteran stereographers will be on hand to conduct the seminar and demonstrate some of the latest 3D camera systems.
This comprehensive, hands-on session will impart to local 600 members the guiding principles and art of stereoscopic 3D production, as well as provide an opportunity to operate and align a 3D rig. As simple as this might sound, most 3D seminars don’t let participants anywhere near a 3D rig.
“These kind of events are my favorite,” says 3D Film Factory’s Director of Stereography, Keith Driver. “The chance to interact and teach 3D to a large group of skilled camera professionals is rewarding. These guys usually absorb at lot more than most groups, with great questions. They make it challenging.”
The 3D seminar will cover the following topics; 3D HD digital shooting, camera choices, genlock issues, lighting for 3D, beam-splitter VS side-by-side rig usage, as well as set-up , 3D shooting ratios, depth and pop, proper convergence, alignment, easy 3D post workflows and all the other details you need to know to create superior quality, eye-catching 3D entertainment.
3DFF’s instructors (stereographers) are World-Class experts, with an average of 8 years, or more, of 3D filming and production experience. They’ve shot for a wide variety of major clients including Discovery Channel, ESPN, NASA, Disney and many others.
3DFF 3D filmmaking workshops are typically administered on a year-round, monthly basis at the company’s facility in San Diego, California. Times and dates are flexible as to customer needs, but a current, complete schedule can be found online. For information or registration call 619.384.4014 or visit us at
