NEW DATE! Demystifying LX for production

Posted Thursday 08 Sep 2022

This event has been pushed back a week, the new date is 16 February.

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.

Producing Travel, Adventure and Food Shows with Jon Kroll

We are thrilled to announce this special intensive workshop with Emmy Award-winning TV producer Jon Kroll including two guest speakers, for our Wellington members!

In this one-day seminar, producer Jon Kroll will take you on a deep dive into the world of international factual production. Jon has worked in more than 70 countries on shows like the Emmy-winning “Amazing Race,” “Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted,” “Never Say Never with Jeff Jenkins,” “Extraordinary Birder with Christian Cooper” and “Appetite for Adventure with Moe Cason.”

While making these shows can be both fun and rewarding, the execution of them involves unique challenges, including language barriers, currency fluctuations, permitting, equipment carnets, unpredictable weather, insurance, diseases, safety, casting, scouting and travel delays. He’ll take you on a journey from the first network country pitch to the final sound mix, and by the end you’ll be ready to take on the world.

He will also be inviting guest speakers Tara Williams’, the Vice President of Production at Original Productions, and Alexander Ayling, a full-time award-winning filmmaker, content creator, Youtuber, and television host, to share their wealth of knowledge inside this seminar.

Make the most of this opportunity!
