**Note: You must be registered here and present to win**
Win a copy of Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium (value $1,700)
Edit tapeless and DSLR media formats natively using the industry-leading tapeless workflow in Adobe Premiere Pro. You never waste valuable production time transcoding or rewrapping, and you always have access to the original file's pristine quality.
Tap the full power of Production Premium — even if you favor Final Cut Pro or Avid NLEs. Move projects easily back and forth between these editors and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.
Work more efficiently when tackling a broad spectrum of video planning, production, and post-production tasks. CS5 Production Premium offers a familiar user interface across components, which work almost seamlessly together thanks to timesaving integration and roundtrip editing.
Also: Have your chance to win a DroboPro (value $1,495), courtesy of Data Robotics
DroboPro is the first business class direct-attached storage array that manages itself. Engineered to be both simple and scalable, DroboPro frees filmmakers and media makers of making the difficult and confining choices commonly associated with storage management.
Grow your storage in line with your data capacity needs with minimal effort. To add capacity, simply insert a new hard disk or replace your smallest disk with a larger one, even when all eight disk bays are full. Unlike traditional RAID systems, DroboPro enables you to mix n’ match disk brands, capacities and speeds. This allows continuous expansion as disk capacities grow. With DroboPro expansion is automatic, instantaneous and access to data is always maintained.
Also: Have your chance to win a Zacuto Z-Finder Jr. (value $265), courtesy of Zacuto
The Z-Finder Jr. is an excellent starter viewfinder that. offers a 2.5x focusable magnification, a 40mm diameter Zacuto optical design lens, a large form fitting eyecup preventing extraneous light leakage, and a field of view perfectly matched to 3” LCD screens. The Z-Finder Jr. does not have a diopter instead it uses Z-Finder Extender Frames to adjust the focal point. The Z-Finder Jr's focal point is -2.75 and up (unlimited with extender frames). The Z-Finder Extender Frames attach to the skirt of the Z-Finder Jr. and allow you to semi-permanently stack the frames until the LCD screen is in focus for you. The Z-Finder Jr. uses a mounting bracket that must be sandwiched in between a tripod plate and the camera. The bracket mounts to the 20 screw on your tripod plate and the actual Jr. is held in place with pressure from the fork of the bracket it sits in. You also have the option to mount the Z-Finder Jr. using the Z-Finder Mounting Frame (snap fit adhesive mounting frame) which is also included.
And copies of Richard Harrington's "From Still To Motion: A photographer's guide to creating video with your DSLR
" (Peachpit Press)
With the arrival of high-definition video-enabled DSLR cameras, photographers are faced with an opportunity for creativity and a competitive edge in their field unlike anything they’ve experienced before. Add to that the expanding demands from a video-hungry audience and it’s no longer a matter of if you are going to add video to your repertoire of skills, it’s when.
Here to guide you in a thorough exploration of the video-making process — from preproduction to post — and to ease your transition from still to motion are four veterans who speak the language of both photography and video fluently. With their clear, instructive approach, they quickly get you up to speed on everything from picking your gear, to properly lighting for motion, to using professional-level audio, color correction, and editing techniques, to media management and outputting, and much more.
DSLR Workflows – From Pre-Production to Post
Richard Harrington, Rhed Pixel
Join Richard Harrington, a Director and Editor as he shares practical workflows for DSLR projects. Seems a lot of attention gets spent on shooting DSLR video, but there's a lot more to a complete production. Learn essential planning techniques including planning for storage, synchronization, and gear selection. Rich will also demystify post production with a particular emphasis on native editing. Learn how to transcode less and edit faster (no matter which NLE you choose).
Rich is a certified instructor for both Apple and Adobe and offers practical advice for DSLR productions at all stages of a project. Rich will also share thoughts on a modern post workflow including new storage and archival options using Drobo. Rich is the co-author of "From Still to Motion" as well as numerous other books that have shaped the video industry like "Photoshop for Video," "Video Made on a Mac," and "Final Cut Studio On the Spot."
