Professional Hands-on Training with Sony’s New NEX FS100UK

The gap between Professional and Consumer (or Prosumer) level products has been closing for years. Sony’s latest video camera takes another step to close that gap even more. Sony’s response to the DSLR craze is the NEX FS100UK. Aspiring filmmakers can now shoot like the pros, using equipment that rivals what Hollywood studios use to make big-screen blockbusters.


Sony’s NEX FS100UK. Small, compact and powerful.

The NEX FS100UK camera has an interchangeable lens camcorder and is also equipped with a large CMOS sensor – it’s the equivalent of what’s used in Sony’s PMW-F3 . The NEX FS100UK camera is also tapeless, features audio inputs, multiple HD recording formats, and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization.

Hands-On with the NEX FS100UK
Great audio and shallow depth of field are most commonly associated with high-end commercials and feature films but this summer you’ll be able to get access to these features with Sony’s NEX FS100UK.

DMA Training Courses Changed My Life : 3d, Animation, Film, and Special Effects

Written by Albert Frates : DMA Teen Alumnus

Throughout my three summers spent at Digital Media Academy, I have met many new people, that share common goals, and interests.  I have grown more aware of the different aspects of digital media, and have been inspired by both instructors and other students.  However DMA has brought me more than inspiration, and new friends.  It’s brought me a solid footing for my future.

I began at DMA summer 2006 only fourteen years old at the time. I took Maya I with Adam Watkins, knowing very little about Maya, or what could be achieved.  In less than a week Adam had brought the  class out of the unknown, and into what I would call my first true steps of digital media at a professional level.  Opening many new doors I began to pursue other aspects of media, (Film, Animation, TV, Games, Web Design, etc…).  The following school year I worked on many media projects, for my school.  Live event recording such as Graduation, and sporting events was the beginning. Later entered into a student film festival. Using Adobe After effects, and Final Cut Pro for the first time I managed to craft what would be a festival winner.  Knowing this was something to potentially pursue I went back to DMA summer 2007.  Taking classes that both focused on After Effects (Motion Graphics, and Compositing) with Betsy Kopmar, and Hands on Digital Filmmaking with Travis Schlaffman.  (On a side note I recommend both courses).  Sure enough I was right that fall I was had met up with a producer on a school trip in Seattle who was working on live events for DECA (A High school organization for business and marketing students).  After talking to him briefly during a seminar he had invited me to come check out the production backstage.  Getting to sit in on, and at one point help out with the production I was offered an internship at the end of the show for the next conference in spring.  This is where I love to point out that this would not have been possible without Digital Media Academy playing a role in my past.  Because of the tools, and concepts learned at DMA I was fluent working in a professional environment at at the age of sixteen when the challenge of a live production was presented to me I was able to tackle it without any issues.  My point is it’s never to early to start achieving your goals, especially with DMA.

On a last note which is something I kinda blew off at the start of this post.  Friends and connections you make at Digital Media Academy, is possibly one of the best parts of DMA.  The more people anyone knows in life the better off they are, and once again most of the people at DMA will share goals, and interests that you do.
It’s never too early to start, achieving your goals.
