Film Workshops. Technical and Creative Elements of Cinematic Expression
Intensive hands-on with light and camera.
The visual eloquence of the narrative film requires a relationship between technical and artistic choices. Through the homogeneity of those choices, the creative Director/Cinematographer achieves the ever-so-elusive quality in art. The true nature of the creative process is following imagined qualities and materializing them in the medium. The process of creative cinematic expression is no exception as the concepts are expressed by following preconceived ideas. Once the cinematographer enters the floor, it is about the execution of the mental image. Our film workshops are about translating the Mind Image into the language of film. The Zone System of Exposure converts imagined values of light into F-stops. It brings them to film as the exact reflection of a mental image without the necessity of improvising by the video monitor.
Anyone desiring to move into the realm of beyond in cinematic expression is encouraged to apply.
