Award-Winning Cinematographer Demonstrates Use of 40-Foot Jib With De Sales TV / Film Students, Thurs., Sept. 21
The jib is up . . . or going up! Award-winning cinematographer, Ray Hoover, will be on the DeSales University campus Thursday, September 21, to assemble a 40-foot jib, a crane-like machine that performs dramatic camera movements, and conduct demonstrations with DeSales students from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., outside of Labuda Theatre. Camera shots will feature dance routines, scenes from campus and faculty members. In the event of rain, festivities will be moved inside Labuda Theatre to the Main Stage, where a 20-foot jib will be assembled.
At 7:30 a.m., Hoover will begin assembling the jib in the grassy area between Labuda Theatre and Trexler Library. Demonstrations with DeSales students will begin at 9:30 a.m.
Hoover has over 30 years experience in the field and has worked on commercials, television and feature films. His projects have included all the major award shows, such as the Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, Tonys, and MTV Video Music Awards, as well as last year's Superbowl and MTV's Unplugged series.
For more information on the event, contact Dr. Scott Paul, director of the DeSales University TV / Film Program, at 610-282-1100, ext. 1438.
