The NZ Cinematographers Society is flying Australian DP Ben Allan ACS CSI (pictured above) over the Tasman to run a Masterclass in collaboration with local colourist James Gardner, on technical guidelines and delivery requirements for HDR acquisition and grading, as currently specified by networks like Netflix and Amazon. If you're shooting on a high-end professional camera system, chances are you are already acquiring HDR capable material, but should you be doing anything differently in the way you capture images? Are you going to get caught out with seeing more highlight or shadow detail than you actually desired? Do you have the latitude to let the practicals burn a little brighter? For an in-depth understanding of the HDR process, join in the Masterclass! Sign up quickly, as spaces will be limited by the theatre capacity. This masterclass will interest not only DP's, but directors, producers, editors and colourists who are looking towards delivery specs for the future.
When: 9 am, 7 December, 2019
Where: Unitec Studio and Department of Post, Auckland
Cost: NZCS Members: $220,  Non Members: $290
