TECHNICAL HACKS FOR FILM PRODUCERS – A FREE WORKSHOP

tech hacks

Hello everyone. So we are going to start this new year with something amazing for nollywood producers;  A 7-hour session to teach producers the technical aspects of making a film, and just as we’ve done other workshops on the blog, it is going to be free. its important however to note that i’m looking for serious producers particularly people with no technical knowledge whatsoever but with a lot of passion for the work and some experience on the field. The main goal is to help producers navigate the technical side of film making, so they can make informed choices for the benefit of their projects and save themselves a lot of time, stress and most importantly, money. I only have space for 30 people and will prioritise established producers. If you won’t be able to make it after filing the form, please let me know immediately via mail (niyiakinmolayan@gmail.com) so someone else can take your spot. Don’t be evil. Here’s how to be a part of the workshop.

Fill this form here

The day will be divided into three segments:

1. PRE-PRODUCTION (9AM TO NOON)

Topics: Storing footage, shooting formats (what it means and how to decide), types of cameras, understanding resolutions and making money decisions, understanding the gear list (light, camera, sound basics), navigating technical conversations with your director…etc

2. PRODUCTION (1PM – 3PM)

Topics: frame rates, monitoring/watching footage – understanding the camera video display, what to look out for, red flags – shadows, noise…etc

3. POST-PRODUCTION (4PM – 6PM)

Topics: editing, editing machines, Quality Control for different broadcast channels (africa magic, netflix, cinemas), what to flag – bars, colour grading, sound mix…etc

I intend to make it a very interactive session so people can ask questions and we can figure it out all together.

Like I promised on Instagram, I was able to bully my good friends at Inkblot Productions (UpNorth, TWP, Arbitration) to sponsor the workshop. They will be providing a fancy Air-Conditioned hall for us with refreshments.
