In early Fall 2011, I shot some footage with a pre-production model of the Canon EOS C300 for one week in NYC. I created an article and a video for Canon based on my experiences with the camera. The video is meant to poke fun at most camera test videos I've seen over the years. Canon, not thrilled with my sense of humor, does not credit or condone this video, but I think it shows a lot of the camera's strengths.
I believe that Canon made a beautiful camera that is sensible, reliable and portable in a way that I've always dreamed a camera could be. It prioritizes great skin tone and has higher ISO sensitivity than any other camera out there.
I know there's nothing I can say to change the minds of the RED fan club. For the rest of the skeptics, I think once you get your hands on it you'll understand how great this camera really is. Please buy this camera in January and go film some good skin tones in the dark. You'll love it.
Thanks go out to all my friends for helping me with this.
The International Digital Cinema Workshop is an intensive three-week workshop designed to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced students and professionals, the art of film directing. Specific attention is given to the director/actor relationship and the Nina Foch method for training actors. The workshop takes place on the California State University, San Bernardino campus, with numerous field trips to Hollywood. Students attend workshops and master classes with producers, directors, and writers, while also working on their own short scenes and projects. This year’s workshop culminated with a visit to the Director’s Guild of America (Digital Day 2012). The International Digital Cinema Workshop is the brainchild of Randal Kleiser, Director of Grease, The Blue Lagoon, The Boy in the Plastic Bubble, Summer Lovers, Flight of the Navigator, White Fang, North Shore, Getting it Right, Love Wrecked, and It’s My Party.
