Igor Sunara Director of photography

This course will examine four interrelated areas of cinematography that are essential to the realization of the dramatic demands of the script: "the look," viewpoints and post flows. Through demonstrations and hands-on projects, students will explore sophisticated lighting techniques for film and digital cinematography. We will address how to translate ideas into pictures, and students will experiment with varied lighting styles to create moods and images for interiors and exteriors. 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. Arriflex SR2 Super 16 film cameras and Sony FS-700 cameras; Gear Head; Steadicam; tungsten, HMI, LED and Kino-Flo lights; Fisher dollies; and Jib arms will be used in class.
PREREQUISITE: CFC-3034, Cinematography, or equivalent. You may also submit a cinematography demo reel for evaluation prior to the beginning of the course.
