Motion: A Guerilla Approach to Expanding Your Vision to Motion
October 26 - October 29, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Embry Rucker, with the support of Santa Fe Workshops, liveBooks and Think Tank Photo, is holding a SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION to win $500 in tuition for this workshop. Make a 3 minutes or less video that shows why you should get a $500 scholarship (4 will be awarded), upload it to the competition Facebook page wall by September 13.

Los Angeles-based still and motion photographer, Embry Rucker, shows working pros how to realistically incorporate motion into their shoots, without sacrificing creative vision. Often, it’s not about elaborate gear and dramatic narratives. It’s about being light, fast, efficient, and knocking it out of the park for your client. Embry’s guerilla approach dispels the myth that adding motion is going to disrupt the flow of your normal still shoot—on the contrary, seeing a shoot from a motion perspective often leads to better stills.

This pro-level workshop provides a solid foundation in the quickly expanding world of motion. Through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on experience, participants learn how to produce a cohesive motion project for clients with limited budgets and accelerated deadlines. We cover the basics, including equipment, budgets, crew selection, logistics, and final edit. Understanding these basics enables you to shoot and direct, and assemble a strong, collaborative crew that is well-versed in all aspects of a motion production.

We spend each day working hands-on with both motion and still rigs to feel and understand the requirements of that symbiotic relationship. Over the course of the workshop, three shoots are produced in and around Santa Fe—commercial, documentary, and fashion. These productions give you first-hand experience with motion production.

Join Embry and our well-versed support staff for this important and fun adventure in the world of motion.
