This course covers the creative use of the camera in dramatic film and television production, and includes the artistic and technical responsibilities of the Director of Photography. The course explores shot design, camera technique, point-of-view, aspect ratio, lens selection, and scene coverage for multi-camera shoots. Students will also gain insight to the working relationship between the Director of Photography and the crew.
Through lectures and hands-on production of reality-based, documentary and narrative scenarios; students come to understand the requirements for shooting in the field. Learn to prepare for shoots to provide the best camera coverage to ensure that the final edit is smooth.
This highly active workshop tests students on their technical and creative skills as filmmakers. Students review their multi-camera “dailies” to study growth during this intensive workshop.
