Cinematography for Directors


Wednesday, July 29th   | 7pm – 10pm  | Zoom Session

 *Note:  This workshop will take place on Zoom. You will receive an email with the link to participate.

A cinematographer is among the first crew members a director will work with, and the need to communicate visuals properly becomes a key skill to the success of that partnership. Working with a good cinematographer can leave more time for the director to work with actors and create bolder images, letting the cinematographer take several major duties off the director if they were working alone. This workshop is for new and intermediate directors who are beginning to work with a crew. Topics covered will include:

– How to discuss visual concepts
– What to look for in a cinematographer and how to work with them
– How to develop a “look”
– How to pick lenses
– Technology: what should a director know and what to leave to others
