25 Days and Counting

After months of planning and organizing every single detail, we’re only 25 days from one of the biggest events of the year. We teamed up with our good friends over at Kessler Crane to bring together an amazing line up of speakers at Masters In Motion in Austin, TX from November 14-16. We’ve been working very hard on developing a unique event that goes beyond gear. Instead, our focus is on filmmaking as a whole, elevating your productions, and developing connections with some of the industry’s best. We’re kicking off the event on Sunday night with a little meet and great and then it all starts Monday morning bright and early. Between Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday we’ll be hearing from Tom Guilmette, Joe Simon, Philip Bloom, Vincent Laforet, Khalid Mohtaseb, Jonathan Bregel, Tyler Ginter, and Adam Forgione.

Topics include:

Composition and Imagination with Tom Guilmette

Applying Movement to Enhance Your Story with Joe Simon

Documentary Filmmaking with Philip Bloom

Opposite Sides of the Spectrum with Vincent Laforet

Production Workflow with Khalid, Jonathan, and Tyler

Lighting Theory with Khalid, Jonathan, and Tyler

Color + Story with Philip Bloom

Advanced Audio with Adam Forgione

On Wednesday we’ll head out for some hands on learning… We’re breaking into small groups and get to rotate between stations: Shooting with the Phantom Flex with Khalid and Jonathan, Shooting with the Red Epic with Vincent and Philip, and Advanced Timelapse with Tyler, Joe, and Eric Kessler from Kessler Crane. Of course, at the end of everything on Wednesday night we’re having a huge closing party for all the attendees.

We are so excited about this and can’t wait to meet all the new faces and hang out with some of the great folks we met during the Canon Filmmakers Live U.S. tour. If you haven’t signed up for the event, don’t miss out! The caliber of speakers alone is amazing but the knowledge and relationships you’ll develop from this 3 day event will be invaluable. Trust us, we’ve been to several workshops around the world and they’ve all been so beneficial in our growth as filmmakers.

We want to thank everyone who has helped us make this event a success including all the presenters and our amazing sponsors for Masters In Motion: Kessler Crane, Rule Boston, Red Giant, Rode, Manfrotto, Kata, Zeiss, Zacuto, and Marshall Monitors. Their support is a huge testament to their belief in how important education is. Believe me, without them this event would not be possible. Continuing education is so important to us and we are so lucky to have found so many great companies that are willing to help us.

Also, a HUGE thank you to everyone who has helped us spread the word about the event. Every single tweet has helped and we appreciate it greatly.

    How did I miss this? It’s Saturday, Nov 12 and I just discovered this workshop in Austin … I live in Austin! I read tons of blogs including Vincent Laforet’s.

    Well, I kind of cut back on some of the reading … and a week ago I was a fully employed engineer … now I’m a self-unemployed filmmaker.

    I’m fully committed to another class from 14-18 Nov.

    I did tell my new-media friends today about it. Maybe they’ll go and tell me about it.

    How did you decide to have it in Austin? Are you local or is it because Austin is a hotbed of indie film-making?
