Camera, Lighting, and Sound Workshop Recap

On Saturday, September 28th, Women in Cinema hosted the Fall 2013 Camera, Lighting and Sound Workshop at Picturebox Studios in Austin. This was definitely the most successful one yet! We had a completely full house with an awesome turnout of both UT students and a few people from the community. 

It wouldn't have been such a hit without our great group of instructors teaching the participants. Mariam Aziz, who is a current MFA Production candidate at UT Austin and Cinematographer, headed up the camera section. Curtis Henderson is finishing up his undergrad work at UT and also works as a Production Sound Recordist and in Post-Production Sound shared his knowledge and experience working in sound. And, Carmen Hilbert, a recent graduate from UT and current Gaffer/Grip, taught our lighting section and shared her experience working in professional G&E departments. 

This event was also co-sponsored by the University of Texas at Austin's Division of Diversity and Community Engagement. 

Thank you to everyone who came out and participated and a big thanks for everyone who continues to support us! 

If you missed out on this fun event, never fear! Be sure to come next semester!
