5th Semi-Occasional Community Garage Sale
Location: CQ Garage
Date: Thursday May 11, 2017
Time: 10am to 2pm

It's coming back - the 5th Semi-Occasional Community Garage Sale. Now all we need is you to stop in & shop for deals.

18 different companies & individuals have signed up to sell and have dug out the new & old production gear that’s been cluttering up their places. CQ has scored some great deals from our vendors just for this sale too.

The MN Film Board will be back to fire up our grill for an in-expensive lunch. All proceeds from lunch will go the MN Film Board.

As an added bonus, equipment brought to the garage sale that you don't sell can be donated to the Century College Filmmaking & Video Production Degree Program.

Century College is fortunate to be able to tap in to the grant money of a recent federal program called Leveraged Funds. It matches the cash value of donated equipment, even if the equipment doesn’t fit with their course needs and they pass it to the state offices. The value is determined by the one who donates or a simple look up on eBay.

So, clean out those closets everyone. Any video equipment or accessories that you might otherwise recycle, could be donated. Even small donations make a difference. Century College Filmmaking faculty will be present to receive your donation and help you fill out the necessary paperwork to get a tax deduction.

And by the way, they have free interns.

Contact us with your questions or ideas, & start dusting off your treasures.

Hybrid Photography Workflow with John Huba & the Canon EOS 1D C Camera

Time: 10am to 2pm

Cinequipt and Canon invite you to drop by anytime from 10am to 2pm on Tuesday October 8th to see John Huba demonstrate a hybrid photography workflow that we first saw in the Canon booth at NAB 2013.

Hybrid photography is a method of shooting video then extracting still photographs from that video.  Huba will be shooting video in 4K with the Canon EOS 1D C and using Adobe Premier Pro to extract still frames.  Hybrid shooting allows a photographer to streamline their workflow to achieve high quality video and stills from one camera enabling a single vision to be created.

John Huba has been a sought after New York photographer and filmmaker for over two decades.  His advertising client list includes campaigns for Ralph Lauren, J Crew, Neiman Marcus, and DKNY.  Huba's celebrity portraits of people like Johnny Depp, Salma Hayek and Anne Hathaway have graced the pages of such esteemed publications as Vanity Fair, In Style, Men's Journal, Town & Country and Rolling Stone.

Huba's ability to reveal the universal humanness in foreign cultures makes his travel images instantly identifiable.  His shoots for publications like Condé Nast Traveler and Travel and Leisure have brought him on location to Morocco, Vietnam, Peru and Africa to name a few.

We'll also be printing some 4K stills out on the Canon Pixma Pro-1 printer.

The event is free, but please register to make sure we get enough refreshments for everyone.
