MPC Seminar: From Still To Motion, Creating Images That Move

Join the Massachusetts Production Coalition for the seminar, FROM STILL TO MOTION, Creating Images That Move, hosted by Windy Films at Studio 16 in East Boston.

With featured panelists including Photographers and DPs, Creative/Art Directors along with equipment from Canon and Rule Boston Camera, see details below from the MPC, visit the MPC website, or click here for a direct link to tickets.

From Still To Motion

In the media landscape, moving fluidly between still and motion photography is increasingly common in the same campaign, and often production schedule! What are the conceptual challenges and potential benefits for photographers, DPs, and directors working between capturing “a moment” and “moments of time”?

With compressed schedules and budgets, but deliverables increasing, this seminar will explore the growing trend of capturing still and moving images in the same production, and how photographers and directors make the transition.

A panel of top photographers, DPs, creative and art directors, will discuss how this impacts the philosophy of image making, creative direction, and the production that ties it all together to create remarkable campaign images and videos for clients.

Camera Demos

Specialists from Canon and Rule Boston Camera will be on hand with time for demos, networking, and hands on play with some of the latest cameras and tools from Canon.
