HDFEST Los Angeles event will be taking place in just 2 weeks at the Dolby Laboratories facility in Burbank http://www.hdfest.com
In addition to screening HD films, HDFEST also will be presenting some panels and seminars on HD... and also new panels on HDV filmmaking.
Since HDV was introduced a few years ago, HDFEST has had lots of questions about whether or not its a useful (or quality) medium for filmmaking. These upcoming panels at HDFEST Los Angeles should truly help answer these questions .
Though HDFEST has been presenting panels and seminars on HD since 2000, this is the first year the festival will also offer panels on HDV filmmaking.
The LA event will include two panel discussions on HDV filmmaking: "Achieving Great Results with HDV: An Inside Look at Mojave Phone Booth" presented by John Putch and Keith Duggan on Saturday Dec 2nd, and "Surviving the Low End of HD: Issues and Solutions for HDV" moderated by Larry Jordan on Sunday December 3rd.
Larry Jordan is one of the world's experts on editing- and his courses are usually at least a few hundred dollars. The 1 1/2 hour seminar at HDFEST is only $15! You can read more about his training at http://http://www.larryjordan.biz Tickets for this are available online at HDFEST's website http://www.hdfest.com/hdfestla_sunday.html
Description of presentation "Surviving the Low End of HD: Issues and Solutions for HDV" : HDV has captured the attention both the independent film-maker and the video professional looking to make an inexpensive jump into HD. However, a format that was originally designed for the hobbyist has significant problems when used at a professional level. This session will present the limitations of this video format regarding shooting, editing, effects, and distribution; provide clearly defined solutions a professional can use to workaround these issues and provide ample time for answering questions.
