We recently found this from Pedro who attended to the 2011 Mallorca HDSLR/AF101 Masterclass hosted by Nino Leitner, Sebastian Wiegärtner and Philip Bloom. Here’s what Pedro had to say about the course:

I got invited as assistant for the 2011 Mallorca HDSLR/AF101 Masterclass hosted by Nino Leitner , Sebastian Wiegärtner and Philip Bloom . Wow! I Could not believe how lucky I was.

It all Started with a lovely dinner the 9th of June at the Colonia de Sant Jordi Club . The first night was just to meet Each Other I was so excited about it.
Several months after finally following them and their work I was wbout to meet my idols in person HDSLR. I can not count all the hours I spent eating pizza while watching their videos in front of my computer and they were just in front of me. I had so many questions, I wanted to say so many things, that the first day I said none.  At the dinner I was lucky (again) to sit next to Coco Van Oppens .

After dinner We went to the lobby bar to Have a drink. It really WAS WHERE I met everybody. Itwas so many fascinating to met people with similar Interests to mine. The most of them where really professionals.  Others were HDSLRs interest on just as a hobby (like me). Everybody Told me the same: “You can never say it’s just a hobby, you never know” And That’s Probably true. The more I get Involved, the Deeper I want to Get Involved.

And so 10th of june Arrive, the first day of the masterclass. First things first. Everybody Had to introduce a bit of Themselves. I WAS surprised on the variety of the backgrounds of the atendands: Photography, IT, Software developores, Graphic designers, … After the brief introduction the real masters started a bit of theory on HDSLRs. Most of the people buy a camera, They just take it and shoot. Because mistakes.

Then they Do MOST of the people really do not know how HDSLR work. They Do not Know Their Limitations camera, the good points of shooting video with Them, and not so good ones. It was very helpful to everybody to know and see examples of the Most Common Problems and Their workarounds.

That day in the afternoon we all Went to a lovely place on the coast Colonia de Sant Jordi. The Timelapse-master (aka Philip Bloom) WAS About to show us the magic behind a time-lapse video: Pocket dollies, intervalometer values, camera settings, HDR, … Just amazing!
The second of the masterclass They WAS Actually more about shooting a short film. Every group of six people HAD to film a short film. Nino, Sebastian and Philip Consideration That Took Each group in at least one Experienced HAD camera man, video editor and one Experienced So They Could Work Without any problems.

It was great to see so much creativity around. I really believe many talented people there was there. They created a really great videos in a really short time.

The third and last of the masterclass was they planned to do the final editions to the short films the day before the shoot attendants, Supervised by Philip, Nino and Sebastian (great work!).
