"It's in this stone... I just need to bring it out"  Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475 - 1564)
Eloquence of Cinematic Expression depends on Choices that Director and Cinematographer make to relate to emotional
content of the Scene or the Moment within that Scene. Knowledge of expressive potential of tools of cinematography
(Lens, Camera, Light) is detrimental in understanding reasons for 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:

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

Directors and Cinematographers invited to apply.
