Working with the Sigma FP | In conversation with award winning filmmaker Tom Martin
Thursday 20th February, 4:30pm – 6:30pm
Award winning cinematic filmmaker Tom Martin will be in the Wex London store talking about his experience working with the brand new Sigma FP camera. He has previously worked with an array of Sigma lenses, making content around these stunning products, so we gave him the FP to play around with.
After getting stuck in with this smart, little camera, Tom wants to talk to you about what it can do and how you can use it within your practice.
This seminar will cover:
- Tom’s history shooting with Sigma products.
- His overall thoughts on the camera (small size, high quality recording formats and other information he discovered in testing).
- Thoughts on the footage he captures and some examples of how the FP could be useful.
- Multiple uses for the FP – playing with the director’s viewfinder mode
- Stills mode performance
- Where it fits into the market place
At age five, a first watch of The Empire Strikes Back sparked Tom’s infectious enthusiasm for all things film. Pursuing his passion, Tom went on to graduate from UEA with a degree in Film and Television Studios. Since establishing the company, Tom hasn’t looked back. With an extensive knowledge of both the creative elements and technical aspects of filmmaking, Tom is most at home behind the camera, crafting beautiful images and directing engaging stories. From concept development to creative directing, Tom’s expertise and enthusiasm permeate every project. You can see examples of the work at: https://www.weareforward.uk/
