Presenter, and experienced filmmaker, Alister will take an in depth look at the pros and cons of the cameras available to filmmakers, with sample footage and film clips from all the cameras.
Starting out shooting documentaries for the BBC back in the 1980s, Alister graduated to shooting all kinds of television programs from action sports to drama to kids TV. In 2000, Alister produced a National Geographic special on severe storms and tornado chasing. Since then he has become a specialist in natural phenomena, with shooting assignments taking him around the world, from tropical rainforests to the arctic. These days Alister shoots commercials, short films and feature length productions for major international clients and broadcasters. He continues to be involved with documentary productions for the BBC, Discovery and National Geographic as well as providing stock footage for use in Feature Films.
Somehow, Alister manages to find time to work as a cinematography instructor and consultant for several camera manufacturers, as well as colleges, universities and film schools. He has developed 3D rigs for 3D productions, lens adapters for digital cinematography and he also runs the web site xdcam-user.com which attracts over 40,000 unique visitors every month.
