The course aims to give the students - future cameramen an overview of the fields of filming with a digital camera, its basic technical setup, digital postproduction and distribution. It focuses on the individual critical stages in the process, the consistency of color rendering from shooting to the final presentation and distribution of the work. Students will get a clearer understanding of the roles of crew members and post-production staff involved in the digital workflow, as DIT - Digital Imaging Technician , Data Wrangler (data department), Digital Dailies Technician (dailies department), Assistant Editor, Colourist, vfx Compositor, final delivery and QC output or digital cinema projectionist. It will help them understand their role as a cameraman in the whole process of digital workflow and mutual communication methods better.

Obsah kurzu

The course focuses on advanced theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of digital image data processing, from image acquisition to postproduction and distribution. Visual effect implementation is a particular highlight - vfx and HDR production and maintaining consistency of color grading throughout the entire production workflow.

Both practical exercises and experiments with the subsequent evaluation and comparison of different approaches are especially emphasised, e.g.: ProRes 444 vs. RAW, REC.709 vs. Log, traditional work-flow vs. ACES workflow.

The course includes an introduction to and basic practical experience with the tools and software for on-set live-grade, digital dailies, color grading, DCP mastering, projector and monitor calibration.

The whole area is viewed from the cameraman's point of view, so that the cameraman can assess the chosen workflow and be able to communicate with the other participants in the production, give recommendations and make decisions with respect to the final quality of the work as well as to the production costs.
