NEW DATE! Demystifying LX for production

This event is back on after being postponed from October.

Are you in production and wanting to learn how lighting works? Do you want to understand what your gaffer, best wahine, LX assist and DOP are talking about? Do you want a better understanding of the LX whys and wheres and the production considerations for these?

No matter the size of your production, this is the workshop for you!

Come along to this event where you can ask WIFT NZ ally Zac Beckett-Knight (a grip and gaffer with Late Knight Productions) all your questions. 

Zac has been a technician in the Canterbury film industry for nearly a decade. Known as a 'Zac of all trades' and a total production solution, he’s worked in nearly every department. Recently he has specialised in LX and grip services in the region, working on commercials, corporate, drama and music videos that visit the region.

RSVP to office@wiftnz.org.nz, and please state your industry role. 

WIFTNZ members free, non-members $15 cash - includes a drink and nibbles.

When: 6-8pm, Wednesday 9 February, 2022
