Freefly MoVI Crash Course

This four hour crash course is an intensive, hands-on class designed to fully immerse an experienced camera operator on the core principals of the Freefly MoVI. Our instructors will discuss and demonstrate the technical aspects and basic fundamentals of operating the MoVI system. You’ll be able to get your hands on the M5, M10, M15 systems, the TERO, as well as the new Freefly WEDGE lens control system. Also we’ll be demonstrating their new MIMC mode which allows for intuitive control over the MoVI. 

What is the difference between this class and the MoVI Intensive? The Crash Course is designed as an introduction for camera operators on the core principals of the Freefly MoVI systems. Anyone who attends the Crash Course and would like to attend the MoVI Intensive can apply their payment towards the cost of the Intensive Workshop.

*Please note that you must complete the MoVI Intensive to be added to the MoVI Operator List.
