Film education is a HUGE part of what we do at theFINDlab. Whether that means learning a new medium, mastering a medium you already know or gaining some unexpected tips and tricks along the way, theFINDlab is the industry’s go-to resource for all things film. We wanted to help put together a resource of our favorite film workshops and a guide of who they are best recommended for.
Film knowledge is a living, breathing thing that needs constant nourishment and we’re here to share what we know with you.

Each attendee will have one on one time with a dedicated technician on each scanner. You will learn your scanning preferences, create or refine your profile, and learn the tonal adjustments specific to each scanner. Technicians will also offer suggestions for which film stock is best for your personal aesthetic taking in to account locations of your shoots and the quality of light with which you work most often.
