This is last minute, but if you’ve wanted to learn what all the fuss is about shooting video with a DSLR, you can learn that along with some practical shooting and editing skills at Manhattan Edit Workshop’s DSLR Intensive Workshop.
Things kick off this evening, with the rest of the weekend a jam-packed hands-on workshop where you’ll learn shooting techniques, helpful hacks, how to make use of the seeming infinite number of accessories, and how you need to prep to post what you’ve created.
You’ll also get a chance to see one of the first available models of Panasonic’s new AF-100 micro four-thirds interchangeable lens camcorder, which is poised to become a hit since it borrows the good aspects of DSLR shooting while packaging it all in a form factor that’s actually useful.
You’ll have two very good instructors–Josh Apter and Jem Schofield—to lead you through camera set-up, shooting and editing. (Visit Jem’s production-friendly site C47 to get a sense of how low-key but effective teaching is done.) Don’t worry if you can’t make this workshop: Due to the subject’s popularity, MEW now offers the class on a more or less regular basis.
