Technology exploded since I graduated from Emerson in 1986. I’m thrilled to go back to Boston on November 12 and share my passion for Canon 5D Mark II as a game-changing tool for student filmmakers.
It’s an affordable camera for a student filmmaker with the ability to deliver images that rival 35 mm film while giving them the experience to enter the professional world.
I’ll meet with cinematography students in Dr. Harlan Bosmajian’s class to light a set. Then, I guide them with the Canon 5D in shooting a scene, which they will then transfer and edit.
