Canon Workshop - FASHIONCLASH Fashion Film Festival

Canon Workshop - Filmen met een spiegelreflexcamera 

Het is nog niet zo lang geleden dat er alleen gefilmd werd met film- en videocamera’s. Met de komst van de Canon EOS 5D Mark II in 2008 veranderde dat. Met deze camera konden hoge kwaliteit films gemaakt worden.
Spiegelreflexcamera’s zoals de Canon EOS 5D serie (meest recente model is de EOS 5D Mark IV) hebben voor film de belangrijke eigenschap dat ze lichtgevoelig zijn.

Daarnaast beschikken deze camera’s over een grote sensor waardoor met kleine scherptediepte gewerkt kan worden (belangrijk voor focus pulls). Een ander groot voordeel van het filmen met een spiegelreflexcamera betreft het grote assortiment foto-objectieven waaruit gekozen kan worden, waaronder speciale macro- en tilt-shift objectieven.

Het filmen met een spiegelreflexcamera kent echter wel enkele kleine uitdagingen zoals:
- Audio: welke microfoon kun je het beste gebruiken en hoe leg je audio vast;
- Scherpstelling: hoe zie ik wat ik doe en wat kan ik aan de camera overlaten;
- Rigging: statief, rig of gewoon uit de hand filmen;
- Objectieven: welk objectief gebruik je voor wat;
- Intern/extern opnemen, opslagmedia en codecs.

Canon zal tijdens de speciale workshop nader op bovenstaande zaken ingaan. In het praktijkgedeelte zullen twee verschillende situaties gecreëerd worden zodat de deelnemers ook zelf aan de slag kunnen met hun eigen (EOS) camera. En heb je bovenstaande zaken eenmaal onder de knie, dan gaat er een filmwereld voor je open.

De Workshop ‘Filmen met een spiegelreflexcamera’ wordt gegeven door Jip Barth, Product Intelligence Consultant bij Canon. Jip geeft vanaf 2008 aan uiteenlopend publiek uitleg over de techniek van het filmen met EOS-camera’s.

Wil je meedoen?

Canon Workshop vindt plaats 4 november van 10:30 - 13:30 bij Lumière Cinema Maastricht.
Deelname is gratis maar er is beperkt plek. Stuur bij een aanmelding een korte motivatie en C.V. Daarbij is het aan te raden om je eigen EOS camera mee te nemen.
Je kan je aanmelden door een mail te sturen naar ffff@fashionclash.nl.

FabricAge Exhibition

On Sunday, 10th September during Parcours Maastricht, FabricAge unveiled the first textile creations with an exhibition at Mosae Forum in Maastricht. The exhibition is open until 24 September.

The textile creations are designed by five fashion designers, six experienced crafts buddies, and made my more than 150 seniors during 250 hours. The starting point for the design was the city of Maastricht; the different neighborhoods and the diversity of inhabitants, but also the power of connection and cohesion. The five designers are Maarten van Mulken, Verena Klein, Ebby Port, IXX Jolijn Fiddelaers and Suzanne Vaessen (Strikks).

Following the success of last year’s project LET'S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE (1 June-3 July, 2016) FASHIONCLASH and stichting Tout Maastricht joined forces again to transform this multidisciplinary social design project into a sustainable and distinctive textile product & label: FabricAge. The objective of FASHIONCLASH and Tout Maastricht is to establish a unique fabric design label which emphasizes on the active participation of the elderly and traditional crafts, bringing together the arts and crafts of textile design with the tangible and intangible heritage of our culture.FabricAge facilitates communities of all ages to come together, to connect through creativity, to gain meaning and to become visible to society.

FabricAge develops high-end one-of-a-kind textile designs, based on the wishes and preferences of clients, visualized by talented designers, crafted by experts, and collectively created by the senior community. Each design and process are tailor-made, giving participants the opportunity to be part of a challenging, educational, social and creative experience, and enabling them to contribute to a unique end result. This can range from an outspoken textile art object to an eye-catching wall decor.

Colour Fluctus, part 9

Colour Fluctus part 9 registers an unique footprint, captured by colour. The movement, translated by the pigments, shows a timetable and controls the colours and patterns. The impact of the movement becomes visible once the colour is poured into the water. At the same time, we archive and measure the body movements as manifestations of emotions. The pattern is a memory of this particular moment and tells a story about one's character.  
Performers: Laura Hogeweg, Froukje de Boer, Nora Ramakers, Michelle Cornelissen
