Hi there -
I'm leaning towards the National film and Television school 5 day course - has anyone any thoughts on this course? - does anyone have any other recommendations for courses.

Thanks

Hi James,

I was also looking at this course but after phoning them up and asking them some questions about it it all seems like a bad idea... First off the guy didn't know who was teaching it, he said they usually hired someone at the last minuet as its hard to book people in as they are all out on jobs. I then asked him if I could get a cheaper fee as I have my own rig, but he said the price includes the hire of one of their rigs, so the total cost is about £900 + VAT.

Robin at Tiffen mentioned to me that they plan to run a workshop in May which is £700+VAT and is taught by steadicam teachers, rather than just steadicam operators, so I have decided to do the tiffen course...

Hi Guys

The NFTS workshop is usually very good and they always have good operators instructing but usually cannot tell exactly who until quite late in the day.

FYI our workshops are GBP 695.00 INCLUDING VAT. You can contact me at robin.thwaites@tiffen.com.

They arn't both for me... One is for me and one is a friend of mine who has wanted to do a steadicam course for a long time... the eventual plan is for him to learn to use my rig and then he can dry hire it off me...

Hi Guys,
Any idea when the next Tiffen run workshop is? I was at the Live Broadcast show in London a couple of weeks ago and someone on the steadicam stand said the next course was in May sometime. Is that right?
Thanks.

Hi Luke, All,

The next workshop in the UK is scheduled for the 21st May but looks to be full already (before I even announced it) although i am happy to make a reserve list. After this we are looking at 2nd July. Don't forget what promises to be a fantastic workshop on the island od Ischia, Italy starting 4th May. have a look at http://www.tiffen-eu...m/site/news.php

Thanks for the reply Robin, didn't realise these courses filled up so quick.
End of may isn't great for me anyway but the 2nd of July sounds cool so if you could add me to a reserve list or something that would be great.
Many Thanks
Luke
