MyWorld Skills and Training team worked with Esprit Film and Television and RED Digital Cinema to deliver an exciting four-day MyWorld REDucation course.
MyWorld’s REDucation course targeted attendees from underrepresented backgrounds who had an existing knowledge and interest of the film industry. The REDucation course demonstrated the use of a variety of high technical RED cameras to a group of 11 students, including informative live interactive sessions each evening delivered by internationally recognised film makers and producers from RED, in the United States.
Throughout the course, two Camera Assistants were on hand to assist students with the RED camera kit, as they practiced their newly learnt skills in Digital Cinematography. The REDucation course enabled students to have invaluable hands-on time with state-of-the-art industry standard cameras, further developing their knowledge and skills. On the final day the students followed a mock client brief and fully utilised the cameras with further support from the two experienced Camera Assistants, practising not only their technical skills in setting up the cameras, audio, and lighting for filming, but also developed their interviewing skills.
Keep a look out for future news as MyWorld’s Skills and Training team will be providing more opportunities like this in the coming months.
