Pixel Corps Offers Apple Shake Classes

(October 19, 2005)
Pixel Corps, the global learning guild for aspiring and professional digital craftsman, today revealed its fall class line-up scheduled for Nov. 1 through Nov. 8, 2005 in San Francisco. Taught by industry veterans such as Alex Lindsay, Steve Wright and Marty Rosenberg, this four-part series of comprehensive workshops will cover everything from mastering Apple Shake 4 and the secrets of compositing, to shooting and lighting a visual effects shot on a fully-equipped greenscreen stage.
 
Pixel Corps classes are a comprehensive experience. Participants have the option of taking the courses independently or collectively, depending on the participants desires and needs. The schedule and topics for Pixel Corps fall class offerings are as follows:
 
Introduction to Shake (Nov. 1-2)
This intensive two-day course will give students a solid background on Shake 4, which is needed to fully participate in Steve Wrights Master Compositing class.
 
Steve Wright Master Compositing (Nov. 3-4)
Learn from a master! Steve Wright addresses the powerful secrets of matte extraction, despill and the compositing operation, the foundations of every photorealistic composite. Wright is the author of "Digital Composting for Film and Video, a senior compositor, and was the 2D Technical Director for Kodak's award-winning Cinesite digital effects studio. His credits include over 70 television commercials, plus he has over 50 feature film credits listed on IMDB.com.
 
Pixel Corps Digital Greenscreen Intensive (Nov. 5-6)
While bluescreens and greenscreens have been used for film compositing for over 30 years, few people truly understand the science of shooting green and bluescreens in a way that produces good keys in the minimum amount of time. Often times, a few additional minutes on a set or good pre-planning can save hours or even days of work after the shoot. Join Alex Lindsay and Marty Rosenberg on a fully-equipped greenscreen stage as they walk participants through the process of shooting digital plates for keying.
 
Pixel Corps Post Production (Nov. 7-8)
Taught by Steve Wright and Alex Lindsay, this intensive two-day course will tackle post-production in Shake 4, working with plates from the weekend intensive. Students will have the opportunity to analyze and solve real-world keying and compositing issues with two visual effects veterans to guide them.
