“I’m a professional filmmaker and director (DGA) and have just purchased the Canon C300 MKII to begin shooting my own films. This class was a great in depth treatment of the inner workings and dynamic capabilities of my camera. It was a great way for me to feel more confident about just picking that baby up and learning by shooting. Corey Christian was a great instructor with deep knowledge of the C300 MK II specifically, but also of digital cinema technology in general including lenses, editing interfaces, and post production work flows. Highly recommend this class and instructor.”
