A hands on intensive with the ARRIFLEX 416 PLUS in Beacon!
Our friends in Beacon, NY, The Cinehub are presenting this 4-day workshop that includes everything there is to know to get you started in 16mm filmmaking. During this course, along with guided expertise, you will shoot a roll of film, followed by a screening session amongst your peers during the last class!

We will be shooting on 16mm film, a 400-foot load (roughly 11 minutes).
Equipment and materials will be provided. Your tuition for this course includes color negative film stock, development and transfer to 2k digital.
