Shane Hurlbut Launches Shane’s Inner Circle

From Shane Hurlbut - Many of you have requested that I create more – more in depth tests, more theory, more gear reviews, more answers and solutions for on-set problems, more access to the thought process behind my decisions, more immediacy and more direct access to me.

We are listening to your requests!

So, I ask you a question…

Are you passionate about filmmaking? You know that I am. I have been committed to sharing my on-set experiences on the HurlBlog for over five years because I wish there had been something like this when I was first starting out. I feel a responsibility as a successful filmmaker to give back and share the practical knowledge that no one seems willing to talk about.

During the time I have been sharing my experiences on this blog, you have been very supportive and have inspired me to do more – to keep writing about new on-set learning and to keep trailblazing with gear.

As technology evolves, artistic change is inevitable. I constantly challenge myself to talk about, think about, and write about new ideas. The intent is to elevate your knowledge base and creative ingenuity. We all must continue to challenge ourselves to achieve, to push beyond what we consider our comfort zone. I have built my career on achieving artistic mastery and I want to provide you with a technical foundation and creative perspective for doing the same thing. After months of design and planning, I have created Shane’s Inner Circle.

Shane’s Inner Circle is a monthly membership club designed to be intimate, interactive, and share extreme attention to detail for those of you who desire to take your filmmaking and storytelling to the next level. Many of you have voiced how my virtual mentorship has changed your life and that our current informational posts have helped shape you as a storyteller. This club is my commitment to help advance filmmaking knowledge globally. I think of it as being able to share the “Keys to My Castle.”

A cool Canon event
If there was one guy I wanted to meet at NAB and never had the chance, it was Shane Hurlbut. I did see him speak at the Tiffen booth and the guy just exudes passion for content creation.  I especially liked the part where he showed us how to steady a car mounted camera with sponges. Looking forward to seeing more films he’s involved in.

So if you’re in the LA area, it just may be worth registering for the free event.

Join Canon Live Learning for a first look at the EOS-1D C, Canon’s new 4K digital cinema camera. In the evening’s main event, Explorer of Light, Shane Hurlbut, ASC will be on hand to screen and discuss The Ticket, a short film shot exclusively on the EOS-1D C. Mr. Hurlbut will speak about his production experiences with the EOS-1D C, including how its small footprint allowed him to shoot in extremely tight set-ups while still retaining superb image quality and handling. The Ticket is a love story, set in West Hollywood, shot by Shane Hurlbut, ASC and directed by Po Chan. In addition to the screening and Mr. Hurlbut’s presentation, there will also be a brief technical introduction to the EOS-1D C by a Canon Technical Representative.
