REDUCATION® is real-world training taught by industry professionals. REDUCATION is tailored for all skill levels, from students to working professionals. REDUCATION instructors teach application knowledge of RED's entire RAW workflow process, from digital acquisition through post production.
RED Digital Cinema is committed to helping shooters develop hands-on, industry-specific skills through the REDUCATION program. During this unique time the REDUCATION team has been working to create an immersive course in a virtual setting. We have built a program with a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning that covers all curriculum from an in-person course while adding resources that will build community and connections such as online knowledge base and access to industry leaders.
This workshop is open to anyone who owns or can acquire a RED. If you are unable to acquire one, you will be able to rent one from RED Digital Cinema based on availability. REDUCATION training will be limited to 50 persons per training session.

Residing on the west coast but always following the next adventure, moving cameras with speed is the name of the game. Russian arm, camera car, drone - you name it, Keaton straps a camera to it with a unique crew of young cinematographers. If the tool he needs isn’t around, he will make it, regardless of the complexity. Come join him in paradise, or as most know it, Lake Tahoe, for a backcountry powder day or go for a summertime boar cruise. Always push forward and always have fun.
