Aputure and Kayell Australia are once again providing Filmmakers, Vlogger’s, Video - Photo Enthusiast’s and Professionals and Students the opportunity to learn from leading industry professionals about the art of Filmmaking and Lighting.

The free Illuminate events will be held in Melbourne and Sydney and will enable attendees to explore all areas of filmmaking including art direction, set design, cinematography, lighting, sound and audio. These events will educate attendees on the benefits of using Mirrorless and Professional Cinematic Cameras with all the associated Audio, Lighting and Grip equipment.

Each of the events will also incorporate a trade show where attendees will be able to mix with leading manufacturers and associated companies. The trade show is an integral part of these events as it provides an opportunity to not only ask questions directly to the brands but also touch and feel equipment that you may have only seen online previously.

To make this years events even better than the previous years, we have ensured all our venues are larger and air conditioned with ample parking which is free or council controlled. We have also added the support of an AV company to ensure all people will have a great view on a large dual projector setup, not only from the presenters camera but also of the presenter and the set while he is providing instructions to the attendees.

We look forward to presenting this years Illuminate events and hope you're one of the fortunate attendees to win some of the lucky door prizes our sponsors have provided us to give away during the events.

As a self-taught filmmaker and a self-starter entrepreneur, Rah has built a highly impressive filmography since kickstarting his career in 2015. This includes feature films, short films and music videos. Additionally he has created a large catalogue of product and location advertising and commercials. 

Rah’s success has won him various nominations, awards and accolades that have opened up doors to big brand support including Aputure, Laowa, Blackmagic Design, Bright Tangerine, Hollyland, Zhiyun Tech, Nikon, Smallrig, Angelbird and many more. 

Passionate about being a self-starter and teaching himself how to use a camera, Rah’s unique perspective on filmmaking in the 21st century is one that has spread far and wide thanks to the opportunities he has had to speak about his experience in multiple countries across the world.
