3- Day Hands On Masterclass

with Cinematographer Benoit Debie

in Collaboration with RED, Stiltsville Trust and the French Consulate

Creating a crowd-sourced doc re: Stiltsville

A hands-on three day fully immersive master class, providing a set and post production experience using the EPIC MYSTERIUM-X, EPIC RAVEN and EPIC DRAGON camera systems. Tailored for all skill-levels, from students to working professionals. Participants will have access to all seven

Stiltsville Houses and will be free to create either a short doc or a short

narrative project. Along the way, the participants will encounter house

caretakers, musicians, architects, pirates, ghosts and marine life. The

master class will take place above and underwater, as well as in a

classroom, on a boat and on location. REDucation instructors will provide

application knowledge of RED’s RAW workflow in the field of Digital

Cinematography and Ultra High Resolution Post Production. At the end all

short docs will be mashed into one final interactive doc, which will live

on the web and be projected at the houses.

Stiltsvill is a group of wood stilt houses located one mile south of Cape

Florida on sand banks of the Safety Valve on the edge of Biscayne Bay in

Miami-Dade County, Florida. The structures stand on wood or reinforced

concrete pilings, generally ten feet above the shallow water which varies

from one to three feet deep at low tide. Most sources claim the first stilt

shack was built in the early 1930s, but some Dade County historians say

that there were a dozen shacks in "the flats" as early as 1922. Most

houses were wiped out by Hurricane Andrew and only seven survive and not

for much longer.
