Zacuto Sponsors Event Cinema Workshop During WPPI Convention in Las Vegas

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Feb 1, 2012) - Zacuto is proud to announce their sponsorship of yet another Event Cinema workshop event. The all new cinematography workshop will take place during the WPPI convention in Las Vegas at the Aria Resort and Casino on February 21st, 2012. Hosted by former Filmfellas cast members Joe Simon and Kevin Shahinian, the one-time event is specifically geared toward photographers and cinematographers in the wedding industry looking to take their event filmmaking skills to the next level in all areas.

"Kevin and Joe are excellent teachers and mentors. They took time to answer our questions, hear our thoughts, and most importantly challenge us," says Side by Side Cinema Filmmakers, Jared and Danielle Zacharias. "They don't try to change your cinematic style to be something you're not, they educate you on how to be a good story teller in your own style. We loved going through the process of learning better storytelling through each of their own styles and ideas. We felt very inspired and rejuvenated after this workshop and we would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in improving their craft!"

The workshop will be divided into two parts and space will be limited to 15 attendees per session. The exclusive full day course will include presentations on timeless storytelling techniques, in-depth HDSLR filmmaking workflows and essential tips and tricks for photographers and filmmakers of all skill levels to get the best out of their gear.

If you're interested in attending the February Event Cinema Workshop, you have the option of selecting a single session for $400 or take advantage of an advanced registration discount by booking both sessions together for $700 for the complete workshop experience.
