Phantom High Speed cameras are some of the most sought out tool for slow motion shots. This class will dig into the technical details that need to be considered, such as lighting, movement, workflow, and communication. We will also discuss considerations that need to be discussed on a high-speed project such as lighting requirements, workflow, and crew.  Directors and Producers and Cinematographers alike are encouraged to participate in this demo to better understand the creative possibilities, applications, and needs of these cameras for a high-speed project. Furthermore, we'll look at how these technical decisions speak to the creativity behind the project, and ultimately contribute to furthering the story at the highest levels.

We'll also get into movement, pre-production, and on-set roles, as well as the questions and decision that need to be made before even arriving on set. This class will look at high speed examples, and talk about the details and creative / technical decisions behind them.
