Everything About HD

For the first time ever, I was sent overseas for a course. Me and 13 other people from Media Prima...

We selected for the 3-day HD Production workshop in Singapore (hey it's still overseas :P)...
We stayed at the Robertson Quay Hotel, which is by the river. We crossed the river every day to get to the academy. A good workout, definitely. 
The trainers are influential people in the industry too. There's Jeremy Humphries, an award-winning BBC trained Director of Photography. He has worked for Discovery Channel and National Geographic...
Behind him is Nic Chee, an award-winning filmmarker from Singapore.

We were divided into groups for our hand-on training - all about HD production...



We also utilized the studio to learn about shots and lighting...


And for one day only, we had the privilege of  learning from an Oscar-winning Hollywood art director, Ian Bailie. Did you know he's the one who created the set for the first Batman movie back in the 90s? You know, with Jack Nicholson as The Joker. This guy built Gotham City!
It surely was an interesting 3-day workshop. I learnt so much about HD production which I can immediately apply in my work.
Unlike my friends from Jelajah Joran and Dunia Tersembunyi, I haven't had the chance to shoot on HD yet. But I am totally ready to do so for my next documentary project, after learning so much about it...
5 days in Singapore (3 days of workshop and 2 days to travel back and forth), it was all worth it...
