Digital Cinematography Foundations: One-Week Intensive

Cinematographers are responsible for all the photographic elements of a film, including composition, lighting, and camera motion. From choosing the correct camera lenses and film stock to lighting the set, the cinematographer’s smallest choices have a great impact on a film’s look and feel. In this hands-on intensive, explore the role of the cinematographer through a series of progressively challenging projects. Learn the theory and operation of digital cameras, lens selection, lighting, and grip equipment; the visual interpretation of a script; the duties of the camera assistant; collaboration with the director and crew; the fundamentals of exterior and interior shots; and the use of digital exposure meters and various video formats. Sessions emphasize the aesthetics of cinematography. Gain experience shooting HD video using digital cameras.
