The Illinois Videographers Association is proud to announce an amazing "hands on" learning experience. Jeff Wright from Blue Skies Cinema is coming to Chicago for a two day workshop July 20 & 21, 2009. The IVA is excited to offer it's members, and other videographers from throughout the Midwest, the opportunity to learn from one of the most creative forces in the industry.

For the last couple of years, Jeff and his wife Andee have been helping hundreds of videographers from around the world, reach their goals through their intimate hands-on workshops at their southern California studio. My wife Jennifer and I were lucky enough to attend one of Jeff and Andee's workshops and, in all honesty, the experience changed my life. I left the workshop with the understanding and ability to compose a way more creative shot composition, but more importantly, I learned what was necessary to take my business to the next level. I found a new level of confidence that changed my financial future! I can honestly say that attending Jeff and Andee's workshop was the best money I had ever spent. Don't believe me? Ask IVA members Rogie Cruz and Anthony Andeleon about their experiences. They too spent their hard earned money to travel to California to attend Jeff and Andee's workshop.

For a fraction of the cost of traveling to California, you have been given the opportunity to learn from one of the best (and nicest) in the business! Jeff's curriculum will include shooting at multiple locations in the Chicago-land area with live models!

The cost is only $199.00 for IVA members and $249.00 for non IVA members.

Covered Topics Include:

  • In Depth Cinematic Shooting & Editing Techniques
  • Artistic Shot Composition
  • Creating film like wedding productions
  • Marketing to High-End Brides
  • Company Image & Branding
  • Come away with amazing demo footage
  • Much, much more!

You have been given the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business! Will you jump at the chance or will you simply go back to your everyday activities and just try to survive? If you want to take your business to the next level, the 3rd annual IVA Midwest Expo is a day you simply can't afford to miss.
