The residential workshop is aimed at both beginners and advanced Steadicam users

Tiffen International is holding a residential Steadicam Gold Workshop at the interior and rural landscaped grounds of the Beaumont conference hotel in Windsor, Berkshire. The course will run from the afternoon of Sunday, 20 November, 2016.

The Gold Workshop is a five and a half day total immersion course for students from raw beginners to experienced operators wishing to improve their techniques. The larger Steadicam rigs from the Archer2 up to the M-1 will be available to use. The first section of the workshop is based around the Tiffen Steadicam Short Course syllabus then moves to more complex shot building and sophisticated techniques, including the use of vehicles and other moving platforms.

This workshop is residential and full board, to make use of all the time available for practical work during the day and lectures in the evening. Locations are chosen to provide an interesting backdrop for training and the only cost outside of the course fee will be extras such as beverages ordered at the bar. The accommodation is not optional, and places are limited.
