Check out this post to find out how you can register for Vincent Laforet's upcoming Introduction to HDDSLR Cinema course...
One of the main reasons we created B&H Insights was to share useful information about creative production processes and techniques. That's why we're so excited about creativeLIVE, and why B&H has chosen to partner with creativeLIVE on their photography courses. Now anyone who's interested in creative media production can tune in and get world-class live training free of charge. The driving idea behind creativeLIVE is the democratization of creative education. By sharing all of their live courses with the world, Chase Jarvis, tech wizard Craig Swanson, and the whole creativeLIVE team wish to raise the bar of the work produced by photographers, filmmakers, designers, and artists on the whole. All of the classes are taught by the leading professionals in their respective fields. Viewers are encouraged to interact via live chat and Twitter.
On Friday April 30th, the first class on the topic of shooting HD video on a DSLR camera will take place with the renowned DP, photographer, and filmmaker Vincent Laforet. B&H is proud to be involved in making this workshop come to life. All you need to do to watch the live feed of the course is to register here. The registration process is about as painless as it gets. You simply submit your name and email address and you're done. You'll get an email reminder to tune in shortly before the class takes place.
If you can't watch the live stream of any class at creativeLIVE, you have the option of purchasing a download of the material. The download is DRM-free, and yours to keep. The fee for the download is there in order to offset the cost of producing the content and maintaining the studio and classroom. If you're in the Seattle area, you can also purchase tickets to attend the classes in person.
Keep an eye on the calendar at creativeLIVE.com. There are already tons of exciting classes in the line-up. And definitely don't miss Vincent Laforet's Introduction to HDDSLR Cinema, which simultaneously kicks off this Friday April 30th at 1PM in New York, 10AM Pacific on the West Coast of the USA, and at 3AM on Saturday May 1st in Sydney Australia (drink lots of coffee, mates). A drop down menu at the top of the calendar page allows you to set your time zone so you can figure out what time you need to watch the live stream. I'll see you guys in class!
