About the course
FTM and Les Productions MIDCAN Productions Inc. are partnering to deliver this unique training initiative for media production professionals that are looking to develop their skills with new technologies and visual modes of creative expression.

This workshop will cover more of a mock up for commercial shooting scenarios. Participants of this course will receive a combination of hands-on learning, mock shooting, 4K camera workflow, lectures and demonstrations on the leading-edge technologies in image making.

Course outline:
Day 1 – 7pm to 9:30pm – Evening lecture, overview of various camera systems.

The first day will serve as a “pre-production” session. Going over various aspects such as: storyboarding, the script, discussions between the Director and Cinematographer, technical approaches, lighting, lens choice, camera choices and so on.


Day 2 – 10am to 5pm – Camera set-ups, tests and mock shooting component

Participants will go through a series of mock shoots, with one or more cameras, based off of storyboards. Course participants will receive an in-depth and exclusive hands-on technical demonstration.

The instructors will recreate problems and show the participants how to solve them. Test footage will be shot and prepared for review and comparison between different cameras.

– 10am to 5pm

During day three of the course participants will focus on posting the footage and go through various workflows for an edit in colour and sound.

Workflow will be discussed and participants will learn about the costs, benefits and advantages of each camera.

Following this course, participants will understand current industry trends with 4K/HD productions and have a good working recognition of potential future platforms.
