Closer to nature with Digiscoping: CAPTURE WHAT MOVES YOU!
Date: Thursday, Oct. 12th, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Who: with Mario Kreuzer, in cooperation with Swarovski Optik
Info: Swarovski OptikMario Kreuzer

Mario Kreuzer, born and raised in Carinthia, Austria, has been working as a cameraman for film and television for half of his life. His work as a cameraman is regularly seen in the evening program of ORF and Servus-TV. He is currently working for ORF Universum on a documentation of kestrels, two thirds of the documentation are being filmed with a SWAROVSKI OPTIK telescope. Only in that way it was possible to take close-ups of the small predators without disturbing them.

Digiscoping is the term used to describe the special video and photographic technique where a camera and spotting scope are connected to form a powerful video or photo device, and interact perfectly so that you can take impressive shots.
The workshop introduces the use of a telescope for single large sensor cameras and the advantages from it. After a brief theoretical introduction, the main part of the workshop consists of the practical work with the devices in nature. At the end the results are jointly discussed.

Participation is limited to 10 filmmakers with their own basic equipment.
Registrations are possible until October 1st 2017 via email to: digiscoping@inff.eu
Participation with valid registration only!
