    Transforming Mind Image into the language of Film and Video.
    Through demonstration and hands-on, workshop addresses the issue of the relevance of the creative and technical Choices to address
    the story content. Choices of Lens, Cam Position, Color, Lighting Mood and Style are the basic tools of Cinematic Expression.
    The workshop concentrates on the methodical approach to realization of creative process and as such it is an invaluable tool for Directors
    and Directors of Photography in their pursuit of self expression. True nature of Artistic Process in cinematic expression is in the ability to
    follow on a preconceived idea - Mind Image - and materializing it with the help of tools of cinematography.
    Lighting from imagination without help of video monitor is at the core of cinematic expression in film and video. Mind Image is the beginning
    of creative process as what remains is to exploit the technical and creative in order to materialize it.
