ProFusion 2016 SONY Sessions


NEW MOTHER NATURE VISITS PROFUSION

Live Demos in the Sony Booth:
October 5th Noon - 1:00 and 4:00pm - 5:00pm
October 6th 11:00am - Noon

Here’s your chance to capture Mother Nature looking her very best. And you can thank Sony for the opportunity. They have arranged to have local floral artist, Bruno Duarte of Fresh Floral, to do 3 live demonstrations over the course of the show. Bruno will be working with the live models, dressing them in necklaces, headwear and full floral bodice suits.

Picture this. Mother Nature (OK, a model dressed to look like her) modelling in front of a textured flower wall. Sure, you’ve taken pictures of flowers before. But guaranteed, nothing like this. Take the shot of your life in the Sony booth at ProFusion.

Models will be available all day for attendees to photograph

 

DJI TRAINING
Using Sony's PXW-FS5 and PXW-FS7

Presented By: Jem Schofield
DURATION: 1 hour

The Sony PXW-FS Series (FS5 & FS7), are two of the most popular digital camera systems being used in production today.

Whether for wedding and event videography, documentary & corporate productions, music videos or short and long form narratives, these cameras provide users with both HD and UHD/4K recording options that allow them to provide a wide range of solutions to their clients. While the FS5 and FS7 share many features, and they can be used very effectively in production together, they are also different camera systems in their own right in terms of where they fit into productions (each have their own unique features).

In this session Jem Schofield of theC47 will take you through the key feature of both the FS7 and the FS5 and discuss and demonstrate best practices for setting up each camera system effectively for your upcoming productions.

Target Audience: Directors of Photography, Camera Operators, Producers, Directors and anyone that wants to understand how to successfully work with Sony's FS series of digital camera systems.

Achieving a distinctive cinematic style while working in very unconventional environments

Presented By: Sarorn R. Sim, CSC

Sarorn will cover the entire gamut of what it takes to achieve a distinctive cinematic style while working in very unconventional environments.

DJI TRAINING
Using 4K, HDR, Colour Spaces, Log & LUTs in Today's Productions

Presented By: Jem Schofield
DURATION: 1 hour

HD, UHD, HDR, Rec. 709, BT. 2020, Log and LUT's?!
What are they and how & when do you use them?

As modern HD and 4K digital cinema cameras evolve and become more affordable, it is important that you not only learn one particular camera system but how modern production works as a whole.

With Sony's digital cinema cameras now allowing for not only HD and 4K acquisition but also HDR recording with large color spaces, multiple recording options (resolutions & codecs), Log recording, monitoring LUTs and plethora of other options, it's hard to sort everything out!

In this session with Jem Schofield of theC47 he will take attendees through the process of understanding how Sony's cameras work so you can make informed decisions in terms of how to shoot your next project. While he will use a variety of Sony cameras to go over these features (a7 series, FS series and F series), the workshop will apply to all modern digital camera systems.

Target Audience: Directors of Photography, Camera Operators, Producers, Directors and anyone that wants to understand how to successfully work with 4K, HDR, Colour Spaces, Log and LUTs with modern digital camera systems.

What people say About us

  • I've done far too many dealer trade shows over the past 20+ years, but I've done enough of them to know what a tremendous effort it requires to do one properly. You and your team have done it properly. It was organized with surgical precision, and we had plenty of help when we needed it. Thank you for your efforts and your support. I am looking forward to the mutual benefit ProFusion will bring us both.

  • I can honestly say I think it was probably the best run show that I have ever been involved with. We also had some fantastic interest in our product and sold out the show stock several times which was phenomenal for us.

    Rod Aaron Director, Rotolight, Pinewood Studios

  • I have received about 20 letters from students who took one of my programs and all of them were extremely positive. The entire experience was exceptional and you can definitely count me in again for next year.
