Alex Buono, SNL Director of Photography to Guest Instruct at IPR

Last week on the IPR Newswire blog, I posted a little about Alex Buono’s upcoming visit. It turns out he’s doing a little teaching while he’s here. This is definitely a “can’t miss” event.  He’s going to talk about the Canon EOS 7D – an awesome camera. Just this week, Canon loaned one to IPR long-term! This means IPR digital cinema and photography students are going to have educational access to a really nice piece of gear.  Thanks Canon! To learn more about what you can expect on Monday, August 29th 2011, check out the blurb below:



 Presented by Alex Buono

 DESCRIPTION: In the world of film and television, there is no deadline more unmovable than when you hear those magical words, “Live from New York, It’s Saturday Night! “. As a 10-year veteran of the Saturday Night Live Film Unit, Alex Buono must deliver high-end commercial parodies and short films in as few as 24 hours, and he will share with you how shooting with the Canon 5DmII & 7D has revolutionized the way he works. Alex will use his experience over the decade at SNL to demonstrate everything you need to know when it comes to shooting videos with your DSLR. Topics covered will include an extensive setup primer: discussing shutter speeds, frame rates, aspect ratios, camera settings, and vital production gear. Alex will also cover his work flow – both on-set and in post production, including topics such as, “Advantages of Canon DSLR versus other Formats”; “Transcoding files into edit-friendly codecs”; and “How to create time lapse sequences”. Whether you are a still photographer looking to transition into video production or a veteran cinematographer looking to embrace new technology, this lecture will provide a comprehensive introduction to HDSLR cinema.
