“This weekend was great – I’ll hopefully be able to attend future workshops. So glad to have met you and Kim and Patrick. I remember reading my first issue of StudentFilmmakers Magazine years ago – it seemed to be written for me personally. Every article was relevant to what I was trying to learn. There were articles that helped me with ‘where I was’ as well as articles that allowed me to envision what I aspired to be. To this day, it remains my favorite source of information as a filmmaker.”

“Happy and successful New Year to you and all at the magazine! Yes, I did get a copy of the magazine and was very impressed with the quality of the layout and production as well as several of the articles. …I would like to receive the magazine to distribute to the Advanced Film Class and to others. …Thanks again for the opportunity and for the ability to give the magazine to the students.”

“CHIMERA had decided to produce a student film contest in honor of our 25th Anniversary and to raise awareness of our Lightbanks and other lighting tools with the emerging filmmakers market. The problem was that we wanted to reach out to a national, even global market effectively and yet on a small budget. We had done a bit of advertising on Kim Welch’s, StudentFilmmakers.com web site so I decided to see what ideas he may have. Kim picked up the idea and put together an all encompassing package for us including , advertising, hosting, trade show services, other publicity and judging. His organization did an absolutely wonderful job. Needless to say the contest was a big hit all around.”

“Kim Welch’s StudentFilmmakers (a misnomer as it is really reaching both film and video making individuals)/ Welch Interactive web-site and pushed e-mails, added value as an outreach method to both my DIS Consulting Corporation multi-client on-line research in video editing called Video Editing World tm 2005 and helped me in and my activity as event manager of S. M. P. T. E’s annual video Editing Showcase. In the case of the editing research project, use of Kim’s databases and his outbound e-mail alerts helped build traffic to the on-line questionnaire. In the case of the Showcase, using Kim’s list, and having him as an exhibitor there, helped to lure more attendees to the June events. In both regards, it impressed me that Kim has something clever going on.”

“As a film and video professional, it’s important to stay on top of cutting-edge technology and advancements that enhance my ability to serve my clients. The HDSLR workshop at StudentFilmmakers Magazine is a wonderful opportunity to explore how the technology of video continues to move closer to the visual impact of film. I’d highly recommend this workshop to beginners and professionals alike.”

“The students at Western Carolina University Motion Picture Program love the articles in StudentFilmmakers magazine. They have said that the writing is clear and the techniques are clearly explained. Many of the “how to” articles are written so the beginner can understand and not be lost with a lot of deep technical information. I have been a Director of Photography for many years and I look forward to each issue and each month I learn new tips and tricks from the StudentFilmmakers mag.”

“With a 20-year career as a still photographer behind me and now two years into multimedia integrating video, stills, and audio, DSLR video is a natural next step. I began my research by looking online for accessories for getting good DSLR video footage – whoa, what an overload! I saved lots of valuable time by taking the StudentFilmmakers workshop and getting right-to-the-point advice from a competent, knowledgeable instructor about equipment options as well as DSLR video techniques. The instructor understands the mindset of both stills and video camera users so this seminar works regardless of professional background. Participants can ask questions about what works best for their unique shooting needs. I would highly recommend this workshop for anyone looking to jumpstart the process of learning DSLR video!”

As someone who lectures to college level students in digital media subjects for a living, I truly appreciated Patrick Reis’ teaching style. It can sometimes be very difficult for an instructor to keep students fully engaged and interested for two entire days, but he was amazing. The material was presented in a way that helped to clarify topics I was previously uncertain about, while also introducing me to valuable industry standard techniques. I would not hesitate to recommend this workshop to my colleagues and students.”

“I took one of Patrick’s HDSLR workshops in the Fall and found it very valuable for me to attend the 2 Day HDSLR workshop this past weekend. Within just a few months, the cameras, rigs, gear. shooting styles and workflows have continued to change, and it was great to be able to have a review and catch up with the changes. The audio workshop [Day 2] was especially helpful for me. I’ve never shot video without sound and image being recorded to the same tape in sync. What Patrick had to say about the workflow of capturing audio from a source other than on camera included illustrating mistakes that can easily happen. He emphasized the attention and focus needed to prevent them (especially working as a one person band doing your own audio). The workflow he suggested for organizing media with audio recorded separately will save me valuable time in the future in post. I’ve taken other workshops at StudentFilmmakers.com [Manhattan, New York] and as well as the quality of the instructors and the courses offered I’d recommend them because they’re fun, affordable and provide the opportunity to connect with a diverse community of other filmmakers.”
– Courtney Harmel, Owner of Courtney Harmel Productions, New York

“The HDSLR workshop was fantastic. No matter what kind of filmmaker you are should it be narrative, doc, events – whatever may have you, there is something to learn here for anyone. You get the opportunity to see and try out different pieces of equipment that enhance the DSLR filmmaking experience. Not only that but you’re getting a ton of information from Patrick Reis who really knows his stuff. You’re in a room with people who are there for the same reason as you – because they love filmmaking so it’s also a good networking experience which is invaluable. There’s no doubt my filmmaking, even if it’s just slightly, will be taken to another level.”
