Drawing on his experience as the camera operator for Director Peter Weir on “Fearless,” as well as other successful film makers, Paul Babin, SOC will teach you about becoming a more creative, fearless, and powerful presence on set.
In this interactive session, you'll learn:
- How successful Producers, Directors, and Cinematographers motivate a cast and crew to show up and give their best
- What are the tools of effective leadership on a production? How to survive "difficult" people when you're "just" one of the crew: a grip, electrician, p.a., or camera assistant?
- How to keep your cool when others are losing theirs, does a collaborative art form like film making have to be painful? How you can create a positive experience, regardless of your job title, and why bother?
- How do you thrive?
For over 30 years, Paul has been one of the most successful and respected camera operators in Hollywood. He's had the pleasure of collaborating with many of the industry's greatest directors and cinematographers, among them Steven Spielberg and Michael Salomon, Francis Ford Coppola and John Toll, Peter Weir and Alan Daviau, and James Cameron and Russell Carpenter on films such films as Always, The Rainmaker, Fearless, and True Lies. Known for both his camera skill and ability to connect with cast and crew, in 2012, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from The Society of Camera Operators.
Paul holds a BA and MFA in Cinema from the University of Southern California as well as a Master’s in Spiritual Psychology and Certification as a Soul-Centered Professional Coach from the University of Santa Monica.
