About the Workshop:

This one-day training session is designed to help Manitoban films professionals learn more about the most cutting-edge camera and film gear from ARRI instructor and film industry veteran Francois Gauthier. This session will feature training on the new ARRI Alexa 35.

The Alexa 35 was release in 2022 to meet the demands of the streaming era and to give us the first new sensor in over a decade. The new ARRI Alexa 35 is a 4K cinema camera capable of frame rates of up to 120fps out of the box. No licenses will be needed. Not for high frame rates or anamorphic options.

The new Super 35 ALEV 4 sensor will measure 27.99 x 19.22 mm with a 4.6K resolution and have internal motorized FSND filters with ND 0.6, ND 1.2, and ND 1.8. An electronic rolling shutter will offer exposure control with shutter angles between 5.0° – 356°.

It is based on a Super 35 ALEV 4 sensor, Arri’s first new sensor for the Alexa family since the release of the first model in 2010. The sensor is sized 27.99 x 19.22 mm and records at a resolution of 4608 × 3164 with 17 stops of dynamic range. It is the first camera in the Alexa line to allow for full-height, natively 4K anamorphic shooting.
