Three top filmmakers will hold seminars next week at the Miller Camera Support booth (C9520) at the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas. Accredited time-lapse photographer Ryan Killackey, renowned Italian filmmaker Ketch Rossi and esteemed British filmmaker Philip Bloom will each share their insights into the complex, inner workings of the film and television industries and why they choose to rely on Miller Camera Support equipment when out in the field.
Killackey will kick off the round of presentations on Wednesday, April 9 at 11:00am, offering his audience insight into the nuances of time-lapse photography. “I think that it’s really important to trust the equipment you use when working in time-lapse photography, because you only have a few minutes to nail down that perfect shot,” says Killackey. “For me, Miller’s Solo 100 Carbon Fiber tripod and Arrow 25 Fluid Head are incredibly stable and steady, while also very light, portable and quick to setup. Miller hits all the marks that a good time-lapse photographer needs.”
Following Killackey, Rossi will give his presentation on Wednesday, April 9 at 2:00pm. Rossi will show his audience a video review of the Miller Compass 25 Fluid Head that he frequently relies on during his shoots, which span the globe. Having relied on the fluid head for more than three years now, Rossi looks forward to discussing the benefits of the fluid head, including its portability, fluidity in payload and ease of transport and balancing. “From the hot Desert Sands of Dubai to the extreme, frigid nights of the Italian Alps, the Miller Compass 25 Fluid Head has never required service and has never let me down during a shoot,” Rossi says.
Concluding the round of seminars, Bloom will give a one-hour presentation, “Why on Earth Are You Shooting This in 4K?” on Wednesday, April 9 at 3:00pm during which he will discuss the pros and cons to shooting in 4K and share insightful techniques. As a highly regarded professional filmmaker with a career spanning more than 25 years, Bloom’s website (www.philipbloom.net) has developed a stellar reputation as the place for budding filmmakers keen on embracing new technologies. Currently working on various documentary and fiction projects, Bloom offers workshops around the world that focus on teaching filmmakers the art of storytelling through cinema.
