I am very excited to kick off Kodak’s Choices Webinar on Wednesday, April 6. We are thrilled to share the news that cinematographer Roberto Schaefer, ASC will be join on our discussion. Schaefer recently shot the much-anticipated Machine Gun Preacher, due in theatres in September.

I also want to let you know that Matthew Libatique, ASC will unfortunately not be able to join us as planned due to an unforeseen conflict in scheduling.

During the webinar, we will cover Super 16mm, 2-perf and 3-perf formats. Roberto will share his extensive experience and observations on using a variety of formats. This will be a rare opportunity to learn how he approaches decisions about formats and post paths based on the artistic and financial parameters of the project. It also offers a unique opportunity for attendees to interact and ask questions.

Roberto Schaefer, ASC recently reteamed with director Marc Forster on the much-anticipated Machine Gun Preacher, releasing in September. Schaefer and Forster have previously collaborated on Quantum of Solace, The Kite Runner, Monster’s Ball, Stay, Finding Neverland, and Stranger Than Fiction, among others. Schaefer’s credits also include Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, For Your Consideration, and Leaves of Grass. Schaefer’s work on Finding Neverland earned him a 2005 BAFTA nomination for Best Cinematography. In addition to feature films, Schaefer has shot numerous documentaries and hundreds of commercials and music videos around the world.

I hope that you will join us for an enlightening conversation about format choices available to today's filmmakers. This free, one-hour Webinar begins at 11 a.m. (PDT)/ 2 p.m. (EDT) on Wednesday, April 6, 2011.
