THE DIGITAL TECH WORKSHOP with Erik Hillard of Running Pixels and George Simian
The Digital Tech is your “armed guard” on the job: they avoid disasters and solve problems on the fly - preventing image loss and keeping everything organized! Either your digital workflow is working - or it’s NOT - and a Digital Tech protects you from losing the files, the client, and your reputation!
During our live demonstration, Erik Hillard of Running Pixels will demonstrate and discuss the entire digital workflow, while George Simian shoots a young actress! Erik will answer all of your questions while managing the incoming images - using the best capture software and executing back-up strategies. Erik will cover camera and computer trouble-shooting, solving mysterious software crashes, monitoring proper exposure and focus while giving feedback to the shooter, verifying file backups, and processing images for the client. Right on the job!
Whether you want to know what to ask from your Digital Tech - or how to become a Digital Tech - or how to do-it-yourself on your own shoots - this is the workshop for you!
