This workshop is for film and video directors, cinematographers and emerging filmmakers who want to focus on the use of camera in cinematic storytelling. Students learn the cinematic language of shot design, composition, camera placement and movement. The subtle differences in camera operating styles and their effects on the viewer are addressed through exercises and screenings. Classroom lectures cover film dynamics, screen direction and the role of the camera in visual storytelling. Students work with scripts as they break down scenes, plan scene coverage, and prepare storyboards and shot lists. Students leave with a working knowledge of scene design and an understanding of the role the camera plays in the filmmaking process.
