The Lowdown on Digital Workflow: A London Film School 2-Day Workshop in Association with VET

Thursday 27th & Friday 28th January 2011 – 10am–5pm – The London Film School, Covent Garden

Fee: £250 (£180 Freelancers) – Includes networking drinks on Thursday evening.

The intricacies of the ‘Digital Workflow’ can be incredibly complicated and daunting for filmmakers. The process impacts on numerous departments, including camera, sound, editing, visual effects, production management, post production and others. If the capture medium is digital, how exactly do you get to the finished movie? If you don’t understand what happens where and when and why, how do you plan it, schedule it, budget it and control it?

Aimed at film professionals working in all departments, this new Skillset-funded course provides a comprehensive overview of what to expect from and how to work within an all-digital workflow. Topics covered over the two days include:

  • The implications of shooting on different formats, each with their own specific workflow.
  • Who is in charge of the workflow?
  • The use of different naming conventions in capturing and storing image data.
  • The emergence of new terminology which not everybody understands.
  • Changing roles on set and new ways ensure the aesthetic vision is delivered.
  • The different deliverables for TV/film/web based output etc.
  • In-depth case studies of STREETDANCE 3D and 127 HOURS.

The course has been developed by The London Film School in collaboration with VET and is moderated by its MD Joan Leese. A keynote speech will be delivered by Visual Effects and Workflow Specialist Claudia Meglin. Additional special guests so far include:

  • Jonathan Smiles – Digital Production Supervisor [GREEN ZONE, DISTRICT 9, RED RIDING]
  • Alistair Hopkins – Post Production Supervisor [TAMARA DREWE, SEX & DRUGS & ROCK & ROLL, IN BRUGES]
  • Jim Spencer – Producer [MONSTERS, STREETDANCE 3D]
  • Laura Hastings Smith – Producer [CHATROOM, HUNGER, THE LIVES OF THE SAINTS]
  • Tamsin Jeffrey – First Assistant Editor [127 HOURS, STARDUST, ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE MIDLANDS]
