Camera on the Move

Learn Tools & Techniques with SAW Video's Dolly, Slider, & Shoulder Rig!

Trying to get the most professional look for your shoot?  Want to raise the production value of your project? Interested in renting SAW Video’s dolly or Cameron shoulder rig but not quite sure how to use them to their full potential safely and effectively?

This workshops will highlight some of SAW Video's more advanced production tools to help take your project to the next level.  It will provide camera support for the use of different types of lenses, training for specialized camera movements using a dolly, a slider, and how to use SAW's Cameron Shoulder Rig with built-in fallow focus.  Learn to use our Matthew’s Doorway dolly with a track on wheels, level for uneven ground, or create a unique camera move up an incline.  Learn how to use the slider to get smooth horizontal or vertical moving shots.  And learn the proper set-up for the shoulder rig (it has a lot of pieces, don’t forget where they all go!). This workshop takes place over 2 evenings and will be hands-on with plenty of time to try out different shooting scenarios.

Philip Rose has been active in the Ottawa/Gatineau media arts community for over twenty years.  His videos (single-channel and installation) have been exhibited in Canada and internationally. They examine the medium’s ‘plasticity’, deviating from naturalistic, ‘transparent’ imaging of the world to explore its expressive potential.  Philip has served on the Boards of Saw Video and Daïmõn (Gatineau) and was the Coordinator of the Available Light Screening Collective for more than fifteen years.  From 2007-2016 he was the video technician at Daïmõn working on various aspects of video and installation projects, including shooting, editing and producing a series of bilingual artist profiles/interviews.  As the owner of Cinetronic, he has worked with media artists, arts organizations and documentary producers.
