Are you having problems with losing quality when you export your digital films? Do your works come out squashed or widescreen when you burn them to DVD and you have not idea why? If so this is the workshop for you…

Artist Reuben Henry (of Karin Kihlberg & Reuben Henry) who has experience of making large-scale artist video commissions will lead this practical workshop on the technical aspects of importing and exporting digital video. He will cover: file types, formats, bit-rates, compression and export settings and will explore what video codecs are and which to use for different scenarios. Henry will share tips and discuss good practice in making and showing digital films, and how to get the best out of your footage whether for a mobile device or the big screen.

This session will be guided by you and what you want to find out, so come armed with your questions and confusions.
