Am looking into taking a weeklong class at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport. I know they are under new management, and I have heard "not so good" things of late. I was wondering if anyone here had attended the school in 2007 and could share their experience with how things are going under the new management?

Thanks,
-Tim

anyone have anything to say about these workshops? I was about to post a similar question. It looks intriguing.

I took Feature Film Lighting with James L. Carter last summer and had a good experience. The facilities definitely could have been better, and we did not shoot on film as promised but it didn't matter, as it was much more about developing your own process and philosophy towards lighting a scene. I learned a lot from James in such a short amount of time through his demos, having him tear up what we've done on our own (both through our previous work and what we'd do during the week), and by watching films with him. The course itself was very well organized, but James had a large role in the success of it- don't know if he's doing it again this year.

I did some workshops quite a few years ago, so I can't comment on recent ones. However, over on CML Doug Hart said he was instructing A.C. workshops and that things were better organised under the new management.
