For digital projection in cinema, DCP (Digital Cinema Package) is the world wide standard for digital projection. Thanks to free and open source software that allows DCP conversion on average home computers, the short film scene benefits, too. If you know how it’s done!
Carsten Kurz is the first choice when it comes to DCP-o-matic. He takes care of the German translation of the program and is in close contact with the English author of DCP-o-matic, Carl Hetherington, for constant exchange for further improvements.
After an initial introduction for a basic understanding of the program, Carsten Kurz guides us to the more advanced aspects of creating a DCP, such as complex layout structures, audio levels, subtitles or encryption and distribution. DCP-o-matic is first choice for a lot of filmmakers, festivals and cinema workers when it comes to format conversion from almost anything to DCP.
The focus of the workshop also depends on the questions of the participants.
