After graduating with degrees in Communication, Film and TV Production, Eric Barth and Jason Jacopian both pursued careers in broadcast television and commercial production at national network affiliates. When the opportunity to work in a beige, windowless office in a large technology company opened up, they both jumped at the chance. Living wages? Benefits? Cafeteria food? Why not?

What they didn’t expect was the remarkable experiences they’d have. Since joining Micron they’ve traveled all over the world, witnessed an unprecedented technological revolution, and shot in every part of the company from the restroom to the boardroom.

Informed by these opportunities and driven by a changing industry, the pair has embraced a new workflow to adapt and survive, drawing on the incredible power of the latest DSLR cameras. If you’ve been dreaming of making the jump to DSLR video production, this workshop will give you everything you need to know, including…

  • A “Get Started” Equipment List – Get a first-hand look at gear you’ll need for your first shoot.
  • “Quick Start” Settings and Procedures – Learn the basic settings you need to know to get the most out of your camera.
  • Fundamental Video Terms and Concepts – Educate yourself with key concepts and language used in film and video production.
  • Live demonstrations – See first-hand how to roll video, record sound, set up lights and much more.
  • Workflow example – You’ve got the footage, now what? Get a sample workflow to help edit and make the most of your pretty pictures.
  • Deep Dive – Want to dig deeper? Get “in the know” with links and other resources to help answer your burning questions and to take your skills to the next level.
  • Meet fellow photographers, enjoy finger food and have a great time!
