Our cinematography alumni include Oscar-winner Russell Carpenter ASC (Titanic), three-time Oscar nominee Rodrigo Prieto ASC (The Irishman, The Wolf of Wall Street), and three-time Emmy winner Zach Zamboni (Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown, No Reservations).

The first three weeks include:

THE CAMERA & VISUAL STORYTELLING
DIRECTING ACTORS FOR THE CAMERA
THE ART OF CINEMATOGRAPHY: Finding Your Voice
EPISODIC CINEMATOGRAPHY
THE POWER OF LIGHTING
CAMERA IN MOTION: Beyond the Director’s Line
LIGHTING FOR FILM & TV

Workshops in the first three weeks are limited to a max 50 participants, and are held in 2.5 hour sessions Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Week four features FIVE MASTER CLASSES (Monday-Friday) with some of the world’s most accomplished cinematographers. These classes will run approximately 2.5 hours and will feature these cinematographers discussing their art, craft and celebrated careers.
