SOC’s Stabilized Camera Gimbal Workshops
With the proliferation of camera gimbals onto sets, for use as stabilized remote heads, specialized camera movement platforms, or something in between, the SOC invites you to explore this technology and how we can use it to advance the art of storytelling. Join the Society for a three-session workshop series focusing on the tech, the challenges, and the opportunities presented by professional camera gimbals. The series will be held virtually with multiple teaching locations and taught by SOC members.
