I did a quick check on the guys they listed and for the most part they seem qualified and industry professionals, but I've never heard of these workshops per se'. I would check the Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce and/or BBB, also the Santa Fe councle of arts or their equivalent before sending them any money. No sense in getting ripped off if you can avoid it. B)

I've attended a Santa Fe HD Workshop. The instructors are well known people in the industry (You'll find them on CML) and the workshop is attended by professionals from around the world. When I attended the core was built around the F900 and the Varicam, but they also had F950 and the Viper, plus a talk on then just coming out Dalsa and a visit to Pace where we saw James Cameron's 3D HD cameras.

They run workshops for camera people and DITs. Some of the people at my workshop had been earlier workshops and were going again because they felt they were always learning something new each time.

It's more advanced than the material you'll get in Paul Wheeler's book "High Definition & 24P Cinematography".

I found it extremely worthwhile.

I'd e-mail them to find out when they're running another one. Could be some instructors and/or venues weren't available.

Yeah I had a friend who went there too, had nothing but good things to say about it. There was a place on that site where you could send questions, but the link was broken.
