In keeping with the RED theme the festival is also delighted to welcome Apple to Dingle where they will be presenting Final Cut Studio – RED workflow seminar. This two-hour seminar will guide you through the basic workflow of using RED footage with Final Cut Studio. Footage will be taken into Final Cut Pro, passed through to Color and back to Final Cut Pro again as advantages of Pro Res and RED raw footage are discussed. The presenter will be on-hand with a Euphonix MC Color Control to show the advantages of working on Color with this control surface.

Continuing with this amazing line-up Dingle Film Festival will also present The Power of Sound with double Oscar® winner, Tom Johnson and Easy DCP with Heiko Sparenberg.

Brendan Tuohy will chair a discussion on ‘The Future of Film in Ireland’. The Irish Film Board has recently set up a group to look at developing a strategy for the future of the Irish Film and Audiovisual Industry. This group is drawn from the industry itself and the relevant Government Departments and agencies. It is hoped that the group will chart a strategy to double the size of the sector over a period of about five years with an increased emphasis on exports.

Dingle Film Festival would also like to give a special welcome to the many Irish Apple Authorised Training Centres and Trainers that will visit Dingle for their 2010 AATC/e Irish conference.

These seminars have been organised by the Dingle Film Festival, in conjunction with The FÁS: TV & Video Production Unit, Tralee.
