If Black Friday is mainly concerned with cheap electronics, what should we call a day for reduced price education materials? Blackboard Friday?
Thoughtlessly, superstar DoP and Canon video pioneer Vincent Laforet hasn’t addressed this crisis of nomenclature. However he has just announced that until Monday the online video of his Directing Motion training is available for the one-off, never-to-be-repeated super discount price of $199 US – until now it’s been selling for $349 US.
In the video Laforet runs through the basics of camera movement language, shows you some of techniques he uses and then deconstructs a number of classic scenes from movies showing how it’s all done and why.
The reason the offer is never-to-be-repeated is that after Monday it will no longer be available on training video service MZed. So if you’re curious to see how one of the industry’s keenest early adopters approaches his work, you’ve got this weekend to pony up and get watching.
To sweeten the deal everyone who buys the training will also get a copy of Laforet’s book of aerial photography, AIR – currently selling for $60 US by itself.
If you’re tempted you can sign up and get the video here.
