This course is for emerging cinematographers and filmmakers looking to explore the fundamentals of camera operation and movement. Through lectures and demonstrations we will break down the many ways in which we might move the camera, and the emotional impact these moves can create in telling visual stories. We’ll discuss various camera support systems and their application, including the dolly, the handheld rig, and the 3-axis gimbal. An emphasis will be placed on the motivation for the use of each piece of camera support. We’ll also talk about the value of the handheld camera, and that of the camera that doesn’t move at all. We’ll discuss the challenges of executing the physical and ergonomic aspects of a shot while composing a strong frame.
Past Faculty include: Leland Krane, David Martinez
