The Global Film Village: REDucation the Real Deal

REDucation the Real Deal: Presents RED Post Community Day 

Industry Experts Explore the Process

REDucation was launched in July, 2009, to bring RED training to an entusiastic and growing community of filmmakers that have adopted the revolutionary new camera. REDucation is the only RED approved and sanctioned education event for learning RED.  Comprised of RED Tech, RED Post, and Community Day, the training is a fully immersive, hands-on experience with international participation.  

REDucation returns October 12-18, 2009 to the LA Center Studios in downtown Los Angeles.  REDucation’s Community Day will occur on On October 15, 2009, a panel of leading post production experts will participate in a highly informational discussion, “The Real Deal: RED Post.”  Community Day is open to the public and features RED booths and presentations from recognized industry sponsors. HD EXPO-Createasphere operates REDucation, which was created by the founding group of industry leaders including RED, HD EXPO-Createasphere, FotoKem, Keslow Camera, Apple, FOX, Alternative Rentals, PlasterCITY Digital Post and Michael Cioni. 

Presentations will be conducted by experts who have forged functional and powerful RED post production processes that they have developed working with the RED camera. Experts include Mike Brodersen from Fotokem NEXTLab, Michael Cioni from Lightiron, Dave Register from LaserPacific, and Jeff Brue from Tunnel Post.  The panel will be moderated by POST Magazine’s West Coast Editor, Dan Restuccio.  

The Real Deal: RED Post discussion will focus on what works, what remains the same, what’s different and how content creators can be completely prepared for the RED post production process.  They will discuss a wide variety of topics including using RED to create features, web content, television programs and documentaries.

REDucation takes a personal and hands on approach with small classes geared to helping professionals master this new technology and dealing with their questions on an individual basis. It is presented in two separate training sessions; RED Tech which focuses on the technical support roles that allow cinematographers to do their best work along with best on-set practices with RED.  Then RED Post moves the students through all the stages of prepping files for postproduction, editing, color grading and finishing.  RED Tech and RED Post bookend Community Day, where exhibits, experts and demonstrations are open to the public.

Sponsors for RED Community Day include; Adobe, AJA, Alternative Rentals, Assimilate, Autodesk, Automatic Duck, Birns & Sawyer-Hollywood, Bogen Imaging, BOXX, Cine RAID, Digital Vision, da Vinci, DIT Station, DVS, FilmLight, G-Technology, H20 PhotoPros, IDX, IGI, IRIDAS, JMR, KeyCode Media, Keslow Camera, LaCie, MacProfessionals, MAXX Digital, Media Distributors, MTI Film, NEBTEK, nextLAB, O’Connor, Petrol, R3D Data Manager, RedRock Micro, Rimage, Rosco, Sachtler, Schneider Optics, Silverado, and Sony Creative Software. Because of the increasing demand  

REDucation plans to schedule more dates in the future to serve the ever growing number of professionals interested in learning this technology.
