Workshop Description: 

This workshop will fully look at the unique relationship between a motion picture director and their cinematographer. What you, as director can expect from your cinematographer and what they need from you.

We will study some of the countless techniques of story telling through moving image and discuss comparisons between a short film and a feature.

The technical element will include a broad look at the language of the lens, the science of eye lines, how to keep your best possible image quality at screenings, the use of post production as an important tool to your motion picture medium and the prep to do to ensure your workflow works.
