On Saturday, September 28th, Women in Cinema hosted the Fall 2013 Camera, Lighting and Sound Workshop at Picturebox Studios in Austin. This was definitely the most successful one yet! We had a completely full house with an awesome turnout of both UT students and a few people from the community.
It wouldn't have been such a hit without our great group of instructors teaching the participants. Mariam Aziz, who is a current MFA Production candidate at UT Austin and Cinematographer, headed up the camera section. Curtis Henderson is finishing up his undergrad work at UT and also works as a Production Sound Recordist and in Post-Production Sound shared his knowledge and experience working in sound. And, Carmen Hilbert, a recent graduate from UT and current Gaffer/Grip, taught our lighting section and shared her experience working in professional G&E departments.
This event was also co-sponsored by the University of Texas at Austin's Division of Diversity and Community Engagement.
Thank you to everyone who came out and participated and a big thanks for everyone who continues to support us!
If you missed out on this fun event, never fear! Be sure to come next semester!
