Sony to Open Education Center for DPs in Los Angeles
Cinematographer Curtis Clark Working on Curriculum; Sony's Alec Shapiro is President
Sony is set to open the Sony Digital Motion Picture Center (DMPC) on stage 7 of the Sony Pictures Studios lot in Culver City, CA.
The Sony DMPC will offer training for cinematographers and other production and post personnel on the use of Sony's cameras with Super 35-sized digital sensors, such as the FS100, the F3, and the F65.
Sony Electronics Senior Vice President Alec Shapiro has been named President, and tells StudioDaily he is now essentially splitting his time between Sony Electronics headquarters in New Jersey and Los Angeles.
Developing the curriculum for the DMPC is Curtis Clark, ASC, well known for his work with the ASC's Technology Committee.
The center is ramping up operations with an official opening set for May 1.
