Please note that in light of COVID-19 physical distancing measures, our courses are now being developed to be delivered online for as long as required, and where possible.
However, we hope that this practical course will still run on the advertised dates and therefore you can still apply now to secure a place. You will be kept informed as the situation develops.
This five day course, taught by freelance technicians and supported by Panavision, is designed to de-mystify film camera systems and to teach you how to use the equipment sensibly, knowledgeably and with respect.
The course provides you with 100% hands on practice, using the current 16mm and 35mm camera systems.
Please bring a torch, scissors, and common sense.
You will be shown loading, lacing, maintenance and assembly of accessories for each camera system.
This course covers:
- Testing and preparation of equipment
- The roles of 1st and 2nd assistants
- An overview of lens testing, collimation and camera steady test
