DV-ography Demystified

DV classAt the other end of the digital format scale, Piet has been showing his versatility by conducting 3-hour seminars around Australia teaching digital cinematography/lighting techniques for Mini DV/DVCAM users. Sponsored principally by Sony, with additional support from Miller, Lowel Light, Australian Video Camera magazine, and other of DV accessories and NLE system suppliers.

Highlighting Miller’s product versatility, as well as the necessity to use pro support to get pro results, Piet used the ultimate in DV fluid heads, the Miller DS5 with 2-Stage alloy tripod, to capture sample DV footage on the new Sony 16:9 PDX10P DVCAM. The resulting images were integrated into his DV Masterclass Workshop presentation which also included CD/DVD interactivity.

The overwhelming response to Piet’s Masterclass is testament to his abilities as cinematographer and communicator, and to the thirst for knowledge by DV users into how to raise the quality of their productions to professional level.
