Quality, In-Depth Education Leads First Ever RED Sanctioned Training
July 16, 2009 (Burbank, CA) REDucation, the first RED sanctioned, immersive production and post production training focusing on the RED camera, takes place later this month at LA Center Studios in downtown Los Angeles. REDucation LA debuts the first of four REDucation events slated for 2009. Other Los Angeles dates include; October 12-18, November 9-15, and December 4-10.
Kristin Petrovich, President of HD EXPO-Createasphere, the operating sponsor for REDucation, noted that, “For the past four years, we have included RED focused events and panels during HD EXPO. We’ve seen first hand how compelled the audience is to learn more and more about this camera, its use in production, the evolving post production workflow and anything related to the process. The interest in REDucation has been no different. The first events sold out quickly and inquiries about the other sessions in Los Angeles and around the country are intense.”
REDucation was developed by industry leaders that became Founding Members, including; RED, Alternative Rentals, HD EXPO-Createasphere, FotoKem, Keslow Camera, PlasterCITY Digital Post, Apple, and FOX. HD EXPO-Createasphere is the operations arm of the training.

RED Tech focuses on the technical support roles that allow the DP to do their best work. RED Post, also a three day session designed for professionals, is in-depth post production training taught in real world environments where RED post production moves through all the stages of prepping files for post, editing, color grading and finishing.
