3D Stereography

The workshop is designed for cinematographers, filmmakers, camera assistants and other cinema professionals who wish to gain insight into the world of 3D stereography. It provides you with a very unique opportunity to gain first hand stereography experience under Juan’s expert guidance.

What’s on offer

The workshop is fast, intensive and absorbing. Our key goal is to give students the tools, the mindset and the support they need to work in the real world. By the end of the workshop, students will have evolved professionally, worked with an industry leader, have shot 3D footage for their showreel and have professional stereography experience.

Cinematographer and Stereographer Juan A. Fernandez leads this 2 day workshop in the art of 3D Stereography. The theory and practice of 3D cinematography are examined in depth, so as to become familiar with the process from preproduction consideration to shooting to postproduction. The course includes lectures, demonstrations and practical exercises –including the use of rigs designed by Juan.
