We couldn’t be more pleased that The Association’s Canon Boot Camp has proven to be so popular among filmmakers. We use a whole different method of training, in which you learn by doing. And it’s done on a gradient approach so you don’t get lost. There are trained pro’s to assist you each step of the way.
Columbia University calls it “Active Learning.” According to Columbia, students only hear half of what is spoken by the teacher. And students only pay attention 40% of the time. So, they’re getting 40% of 50% of what the instructor said. That means only 20% of the knowledge transfer takes place. That’s why we take a whole different approach.
Our Canon Boot Camp is based on learn by doing drills…real life challenges to filmmakers to prove they can apply the data. We teach camera set up and operation on Day One. Then, on Day Two we shoot a short film.
We started the Canon Boot Camp to help our fellow filmmakers get work. And we’re achieving our goal. It’s a real win-win. Many thanks to the great delivery team we have: Nancy, Celine and Tom, and those who help make it all work: Trevor, Tom, Lisa, Michael, Chris, Lawrence, Brian, Jeff, and the wonderful folks at EVS, the home base of The Association’s Canon Boot Camp.
