"It's in this stone... I just need to bring it out"  Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475 - 1564)
Visual Eloquence in Cinematic Expression depends on Choices that Director and Cinematographer make in order to relate to
emotional content of the Scene. Knowledge of expressive potential of tools of cinematography (Lens, Camera, Light) is
detrimental in understanding reasons behind creative Choices and helps in communication with cinematographer. Vice versa
- it helps Cinematographer relate to quality of dramatic/narrative content as sought by Director.
Program relates to Cinematic Expression in two main aspects of directorial interpretation:

1. WHY (Creative)
2. HOW (Technical)
