Master Class: Small to No Crew Production

November 1, 2019 at 10:00 am4:00 pm

$99 – $199


Join us for an in-depth workshop about successful small to no crew production with Jem Schofield of theC47.

  • Date: Friday, November 1
  • Time: 10am-4pm
  • Location: Pacific Grip & Lighting, 6550 NE Portland Hwy, Portland
  • Admission: $99 for OMPA members; $199 for non-members. Coffee and lunch included.


Corporate video production is changing in terms of both company structure and the gear and resources that are being used. More and more companies are also building in-house production teams to create ongoing content for their brands, products, and services. In both scenarios this is generally accomplished with small crews that are tasked with everything—the entire project from production to post.

If you’re an aspiring or working professional looking to up your game in terms of both technical knowledge and craft, then this is the event for you. This full-day workshop by Jem Schofield of theC47 will focus on small crew video production, including effective planning for your productions, small crew production gear (cameras, lenses, support & grip), audio tips & tricks, and lighting techniques that are best suited for small to no crew productions. 

Topics Covered: 

  • Choosing the Right Equipment
  • Scouting your Locations
  • Setting Up your Camera System
  • Properly Exposing Your Images
  • Lighting & Shooting Interviews (interior & exterior set ups)
  • Lighting for On Location Table Top Shoots
  • Working effectively as small crews, with great results 

Admission: $99 for OMPA members, $199 for non-members. Coffee and lunch included. Space is very limited, so register early.
