Workshop: movie-making 101: introduction to cinematography

As filmmakers, our hope is that the visual presentation of our story is compelling to the audience. Cinematography creates a visual interpretation of the world of the film. Knowing how to wield the camera, lights, lenses and filters to create this world is the art and job of the cinematographer.

With 14 years of experience in the industry, cinematographer Oliver Milne will share his knowledge in this introductory workshop. He will explore the foundational aspects of cinematography, the role of the cinematographer as well as the on-going relationship between director and cinematographer.
