Canon launches movie school

[Release by Hill & Knowlton]

Canon Australia is launching a free* Movie School for consumers to teach them how easy it is to shoot, edit and share digital videos!

Anyone who purchases a selected Canon HD consumer video camera in Australia throughout September or October this year will be eligible to attend the Canon Movie School in November 2008.

The Canon Movie School will teach consumers how to make the most of their new Canon DV camera, by guiding them through shooting footage, exploring the camera, editing their recordings and finally sharing their masterpieces. By showing people how easy it is to make a movie, Canon aims to instil more confidence in their movie-making endeavours and inspire more creative and meaningful digital masterpieces.

To register, all consumers need to do is purchase a Canon HD consumer video camera, register it on the Canon Video microsite, and then bring along their new Canon DV camera (as well as a friend) to experience first hand what movie making is all about.
