    Mumbai, October 2014: ‘Digital versus film’ has been a topic of debate in the photography world and the film industry from over a decade now, and although photography and film making is now dominated by digital operation, the older photochemical methods continue to serve some traditional users and applications. To, share perspectives and explore this subject further, leading camera rental firm Accord Equips has planned a Digital Film-Making Seminar on Saturday, 18th October 2014.

    To be held at Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics (MAAC) in Andheri (west), the Digital Film-Making Seminar has been designed for students and budding film makers to understand the medium better and train for what the future holds.

    Accord Equips has put together a panel comprising names that would bring immense value to the seminar. The headliner will be Mr. John Mathew Matthan, ad film maker and director of the Aamir Khan starrer Sarfarosh. Joining him would be Mr Harmeet Singh, veteran cinematographer with over 30 films under his belt and Mr Amole Gole, who is hailed for his DSLR camera work on Hawa Hawaai and Stanley ka Dabba. Mr Neil Sadwelkar, a digital post production expert who runs the popular blog will guide the participants on editing. Lastly, Canon brings in their experts to explain the emerging trend of 4k cameras

    The brain behind the Digital Film-Making Seminar, Mr Tejash Shah, Managing Director, Accord Equips says, “When we started as filmmakers, we didn’t have such events to guide us. I believe our seniors’ experiences can guide us for the real world’s challenges,” adding, “This is a non-profit initiative by Accord Equips, the money being charged is only to get a really serious audience. It is just our way of giving back to the industry.”

    In the cinema hub of India, it is essential to educate the future film makers of the techniques of the yore and those to come.

    This will be one of the 1st seminars of its type to be webcast on www.accordequips.comacross the globe, courtesy Tata Communications. The Digital Film-Making Seminar will be an exciting opportunity for MAAC students as well, as the seminar will be webcasted at over 45 MAAC centers across India.
