This course will examine three interrelated areas of cinematography that are essential to the realization of the dramatic demand of a script: 'the look', handling of actors, and the post flows. We will address how to translate ideas into pictures to create compelling images for both film and digital cinematography, for both interiors and exteriors. Through demonstrations and hands-on projects students will explore sophisticated lighting techniques, effects and designs, including table-top photography, commercials, fashion, and/or music video set-ups. In-camera effects, lenses, emulsion, exposure, contrast, camera placement, composition, movement, continuity and color, as well as working with a director and crew will also be covered. Gear Head, Easy-rig, HMI, Gaffer Kino-Flo kit, LED panel lights, Fisher dolly, Jib arm, Arri SRII S16 film and Panasonic AU EVA1 5.7K Super 35mm Cinema Camera will be used.
