Workshops, seminars and events

We host several workshops, seminars and events all focused on different equipment and production topics. Some sessions are developed and mounted in cooperation with other organizations, while some are solely a Whites initiative. We value the support and collaboration received from the Canadian film industry.

Our instructors are industry professionals who possess a wide variety of expertise, knowledge and practical experiences. Combined with our equipment resources and industry contacts, we believe our initiatives will leave a positive impression on any participant.

We offer Lighting & Grip Workshops, Pop-up Workshops, Leadership Development Workshops, Generator Seminars, Dimming/Control System Workshops, Camera Workshops (coming soon!), and Filmmaker Open Houses.
