In this new golden era of Television, series’ have become more cinematic than ever before. In this workshop, learn from an accomplished cinematographer how to design and capture a show’s unique look.
Through lectures and screenings, students explore how an episodic cinematographer approaches and breaks down a script and begins to craft and plan their shooting approach to compliment character development and story arcs.
Explore every visual element that may play a role in the episode, including composition, point of view, color palettes, and camera movement. Delve deeply into the importance of lighting design and how it may be implemented to create the show’s atmosphere and mood.
Students put what they learn into practice as they compose and capture dramatic scenes from TV episodes, rotating crew positions, and challenging themselves in making creative decisions to maximize a scene’s thematic and emotional impact.
In addition to being offered on an individual basis, this workshop is also Week Eight of the 10 Week Cinematography Intensive.
