The New Mexico Film Office and the City of Las Vegas
"Taking Location Photographs for the Film & Television Industry"
Saturday, October 16, 2010
Highlands University - Room G35 (connected to Donnelly Library on the right side)
Time: 9:00AM to 1:00PM
In this free seminar open to New Mexicans, Don Gray, NM Film Office Locations Scout and Manager, will teach you how to shoot and submit photographs on behalf of your local community. Location photos are the number one marketing tool for communities interested in landing a film production. There are currently 8,000 NM locations represented in 60,000 photographs on the NM Film Office online database at www.nmfilm.com. These photos need to be updated and added to continuously. The goal of this workshop is to help you get comfortable with your digital camera so that you can shoot hundreds of photos of the same location at various angles, and choose the best ones. The more practice, the better the photo, and the better the chance there will be to gain interest in the location. You will learn to understand industry requests and the context of the requests, as well as the fact that location photographs are not fine art photographs. Know which locations to shoot before there is a need for new photos, as well as how to deliver your photos electronically and in a timely fashion.
This workshop is free and open to the public. Please contact Tobi Ives at: email@example.com with any questions.
