Maine Media adds Sony workshops to summer schedule

ROCKPORT, ME — Maine Media Workshops, here, is joining forces with Sony Electronics to give students and working professionals a chance to get their hands on next generation of digital production technology. This summer, workshops will take place covering Sony’s new handheld Super 35mm PMW-F3 and NEX-FS100U camcorders, and XDCAM EX camcorders. Courses will cover a range of topics, from nature and wildlife documentary shooting to advanced digital cinematography and feature film lighting.

The workshops at Maine Media will be led by working professionals with diverse backgrounds in digital production. Doug Jensen is one of the pros who will bring his real-world perspective into the classroom. Jensen is an HD cinematographer, producer/director/editor, consultant and founder of Vortex Media. He is also a member of Sony’s select Independent Certified Experts (ICE) team. Jensen will teach “Digital Cinematography with Sony’s Super 35mm HD Camcorders,” August 7-13; and “Production of Broadcast-quality Training and Promotional Videos,” August 14-20.

Other courses will be headed up by pros such as Francis Kenny, ASC, a veteran DP and cinematographer, who will teach “Advanced Digital Cinematography,” a master class in digital motion picture and TV production. That class will be held twice: June 26–July 2 and September 18-24.
