OMPA Master Class | Demystifying New Technology

May 5 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

$25 – $50

Have you heard of virtual production, pre-visualization, and virtual reality? Of course you have! But you might not know what it means for you. Join us at OMPA’s upcoming Master Class where Cinematographer, director, and technologist Jim Geduldick will demystify the latest tools and technologies by showing you what’s available, how to use it, and where to get it. 

No matter your role, you need to know about the latest technologies (e.g. Unreal Engine, ARKit, Adobe CC) in order to stay current and competitive. Everyone from screenwriters to DPs to producers and directors will benefit from this class. No technology background required to glean useful information for your trade. 

You’ll walk away knowing how to leverage the latest technology to: 
– make the most of your pre-production time 
– develop pitches that stand out 
– bring your concepts to life exactly how you envisioned 

Scheduled just after the Game Developer Conference in March and NAB in April, this class will incorporate the very latest trends and tools of the trade. You don’t want to miss this one!
