Production Basics: Scary Cow Style! Limited Seating Available!
This workshop will teach the basic production techniques for Camera, Lighting, and Sound, as commonly used on Scary Cow shoots. Taught by three filmmakers who have been with Scary Cow since the early years, this class is specifically designed for film collective members. New this round, we've expanded the class to two nights!

We'll begin with a presentation about set protocol. Students will then split into two groups and spend time operating camera, setting up lights, and capturing sound. Each participant gets a chance to be HANDS ON with all the equipment. At the conclusion of the workshop participants will be familiar with the standard filmmaking tools and protocols used in Scary Cow, and will be ready to work on set and have enough knowledge to bring their own projects to life!

Thursday 12/8: Set protocol overview & Camera
Thursday 12/15: Lighting & Sound
