|The Cradle Of The Renaissance - Florence, was the site of incredible activity in
art, architecture, literature, and philosophy triggering the advent of the
Renaissance for the Western world. From the dome that Brunelleschi created
for the Santa Maria del Fiore to the works of Michelangelo, Cellini, Botticelli,
Leonardo da Vinci, Ghiberti, and de Medici, Florence's culture flourished.
Historic advances in the arts transformed the city into a living museum that it

Workshop taught by the award cinematographer Janusz Sikora.
Cinematic Expression Workshop designed for the "new age" digital filmmakers. Program emhasizes application of film aesthetics and
method into the language of digital film. Lighting from previsualization with light meter defines the true nature of Creative Process in
Cinematography. Preconceived F-stop for any scene, constitutes a "cinematic canvas" to be painted on with light.
Once the cinematographer enters the floor, it is all about the execution of the preconceived Idea rather than improvisation.
Improvising in visual story telling is bound to fail for the inevitability of loosing lighting continuity within few consecutive camera setups.
Areas of concentration: Cinematic Expression Film Look Dancing with Light Technique
Anyone with desire to enter "Realm of Beyond" in Visual Expression encouraged to apply.
