Join Producer, Director, Cinematographer and VITEC Ambassador, Gary Adcock, for an in-depth explanation of some of the tricks to get the most from your Tripods and Supports.  Gary will cover how quality sticks and bricks will help you create a steadier image, how to maximize camera moves for a variety of deliverables, and how to properly set your tripod’s counterbalance and drag settings to create meaningful images.

The burgeoning market for 4K, VR and HDR deliverables has created a need for filmmakers to forge a better understanding of the supporting tools in production. Shooting 4K imagery requires that attention be taken to create the highest quality image. What might be a minor camera move in HD, can be uncomfortable when viewed with the increased detail in 4K. Lighting, even at a time when cameras are capable of seeing in the dark, is still a vital necessity in creating powerful and provoking imagery.


Gary’s unique understanding of OnSet and Production technologies and their relationships to Post Production has been a guide to the evolving relationship between acquisition, edit and delivery. Gary’s experience includes his jump into High Definition post production (1999), Demo of laptop-based HD editing (2004), Tapeless camera acquisition (2005), Digital Recorders as a replacement for Tape (2008), Workflow for Arri’s Alexa Camera (2010), and his latest focus on Intel’s Thunderbolt technology and what it means for the future of monitoring and data transfers.

Gary is one of the co-authors and the primary tech editor for the Data Handling Procedures and Best Practices Guide used by IATSE Local 600. Gary has been a regular speaker at NAB since 1999 as part of the ongoing Post Production World Conference, and a regular contributor to Macworld Magazine, as well PCMag and is a long-term contributor on CreativeCow.net.
