Written by: FFT Webmaster | September 8th, 2009


September 8, 2009 (Burbank, CA) – Premiering to a powerful and positive response in July, the second presentation of REDucation is set for October 12-18, 2009 at LA Center Studios in downtown Los Angeles.  REDucation is the first and only RED sponsored, immersive production and postproduction training that focuses on the RED camera.  REDucation presents a rare opportunity for the entire production team to learn best practices, on set technical, and post production workflow from experienced experts and the camera manufacturer.

REDucation is presented in two separate training sessions; each is three-days long, or as a complete seven-day training package. The three-day RED Tech is crafted for Camera Assistants, DITs, Data Wranglers, and cinematographers and focuses on the technical support roles that allow cinematographers to do their best work.  RED Tech also focuses on best on-set practices with RED.  Three-day RED Post moves through all the stages of prepping files for postproduction, editing, color grading and finishing.  RED Post is real world, in-depth workflow training for professionals. RED Tech and RED Post bookend Community Day, where experts and companies present innovative technologies and products to REDucation attendees and to the public.   Sponsors for Community Day include; Adobe, AJA, Alternative Rentals, Assimilate, Autodesk, Automatic Duck, Birns & Sawyer-Hollywood, Bogen Imaging, BOXX, Cine RAID, Digital Vision, da Vinci, DIT Station, DVS, FilmLight, G-Technology, H20 PhotoPros, IDX, IGI, IRIDAS, JMR, KeyCode Media, Keslow Camera, LaCie, MacProfessionals, MAXX Digital, Media Distributors, MTI Film, NEBTEK, nextLAB, O’Connor, Petrol, R3D Data Manager, RedRock Micro, Rimage, Rosco, Sachtler, Schneider Optics, Silverado, and Sony Creative Software.

REDucation was developed by industry leaders that became Founding Members, including; Alternative Rentals, HD EXPO – Createasphere, FotoKem, Keslow Camera, PlasterCITY Digital Post and Michael Cioni.  HD EXPO – Createasphere is the operations arm of the training and have scheduled two more dates later in the year.

Kristin Petrovich, founder of HD EXPO – Createasphere and a Founding Member of REDucation commented that, “REDucation offers the latest and best information to the RED community; the curriculum has been developed by a group of expert industry leaders under the tutelage of RED.  Our event in July sold out quickly and turned into a vibrant educational and community ‘happening.’  October’s REDucation is looking like it will be another hit; engaging, vibrant and intensely informative.”

Spaces for REDucation-October are filling up fast.  For further information, please visit or call 818.842.6611.
