The Guild of Television Cameramen will shortly be celebrating this year’s best TV camera-work as nominated by those who really know good camera-work when they see it – television cameramen –  at an awards ceremony to be held on Tuesday September 28 at London’s BFI.

Preceding the event, the GTC will deliver two Talkback seminars for Guild of TV Cameramen members:

3D Giving a New Dimension (14.00 to 15.30)
An introduction to this year’s hot topic, 3D television, from cameraman Alister Chapman. This will include a discussion of 3D technology, camera rigs and ways of shooting 3D television, human depth perception, convergence and interaxial distance, and presenting the stereoscopic image.

How to Get More Work (15. 45 to 17.00)
Tips from the experts and employers on how to promote and present yourself in order to improve your chances of landing more work. Joe Mahoney of Production Base, Donall McCusker from the Production Managers Association and Stuart Hatton of The Crewing Company are the invited speakers.

Owen Roberts will also be in attendance with his Steadicam Pilot. Members are invited to ask questions and get in the rig to get the feel of some of Steadicam’s latest technology. The Pilot is specifically designed for lightweight television cameras.

The GTC and its sponsors will also be out and about in the BFI throughout the afternoon. Sponsor companies will set up their stands in the Atrium and Foyer areas of the BFI.
