Went to day one of this workshop, was awesome. Thought of all the useless and odious training I've had at Wellington City Libraries, and how the best thing about them was ... the muffins. Before the recession.
We got to see up close a bunch of different video cameras including high-end, and a basic lighting set-up. Great being in a real studio. I felt really happy I had already done some filming. The tutor was a functioning DOP, not just some tired person who a university hired with a little bit of past experience.
It was great being surrounded by all that gear. I have one more day tomorrow, but I think I will sign up for more.
