This popular course has now been redeveloped to take place over two weekends making it a 4 day course.
The cinematographer is one of the key creative individuals in the filmmaking process, and is certainly the craftsperson whose work audiences are most aware of. The cinematographer’s imprint is on every frame. They can elevate a film beyond its script and subject.
Cinematography is much more than making pretty pictures and beautiful lighting. It has a ‘language’, and it’s about shooting films in a relevant way, in order to serve and express the script. In a larger crew, the cinematographer is the Director of Photography, managing a large camera department and working to schedule and budget. Still, the task is the same: to create a work of visual clarity and power.
This 4-day workshop will give an introduction to the art of cinematography, with a particular emphasis on lighting, lenses, movement, staging and working as a unit.
