Applications for the 2013 Aurora Multimedia Workshop are now open. New for 2013 they’ve split the workshop into two back-to-back sessions.

The first two days will be a 101 Seminar for a wider audience looking to gather the latest information in the world of dSLR filmmaking and network with fellow colleagues and faculty.

Directly following, there will be a smaller 201 Hands-On Workshop program for those wanting more in-depth education. It will include hands-on experience in producing a short project in a small group environment.

101 Seminar

During the 101 Seminar, presenters will share how multimedia fits into the future from the perspective of new media ad agency Crispin Porter+ Bogusky to how traditional news media are transitioning (National Geographic in multimedia) to the goals of a new division of a highly respected picture agency (Novus Select) to tips from documentary filmmakers. This is not just training for today, but a vision of the future.

201 Hands On Workshop

The 201 Workshop will have practical hands-on training. Small 3-4 person groups will develop a story idea, shoot in the field, edit a short piece and have that final edit projected before the group and discussed at length among the faculty.

About the Workshop
