DELUXE'S EFILM HOSTS ASC MASTER CLASS EVENT

For the third year, EFILM hosted the post production portion of the American Society of Cinematographers' Master Class seminar. The participants, comprised of a select group of cinematographers and other industry professionals who paid to attend, spend a full week mastering all facets of cinematography, from instructors – members of the illustrious organization -- who have succeeded at the highest levels.

The instructors share their wealth of experience about conceiving an approach to shooting and offer specific hands-on training about lighting schemes, camera movement, lens choice and technological considerations regarding VFX and second unit as well as an advanced look at final image creation through the mastering process. This is where Joachim Zell VP Technology, Deluxe Creative Services and colorist Jill Bogdanowicz came in.

Prior to students shooting material, Zell walked them through technical aspects of shooting, calibrating and prepping for the best results in post. "I explain how we treat footage, what to look out for, how we work with cinematographers," Zell elaborates. "I went to set and helped calibrate cameras and lenses and explained all the options available for creating dailies."

Subsequently the shooters attended color sessions as master colorist Bogdanawicz demonstrated the artistic possibilities and technical considerations of the final color process at an all-day session inside EFILM's brand-new 4K theater.

The intensive weeklong seminar was taught by top-tier ASC members who oversaw students who lit and shot material on the Mole Richardson stage under the tutelage of the DPs. Zell discussed processing, color grading, view on best projector.

The ASC Master Class, Zell enthuses, "is an excellent event. The students are great. And there is also a social aspect in that we get to know some of tomorrow's top-level DPs and they get to know us."
