Visual Storytelling with Gayle Ye


Tues. Mar. 9th | 6pm-7:30pm| Zoom Session

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

How do you tell a story visually? In this workshop, Gayle Ye, will discuss her most important lessons in becoming the cinematographer she is today. Participants will learn about breaking down composition within a shot, balancing subject matters within the frame, playing with light and contrast, choosing the right camera lenses and blocking actors during rehearsals. This course is ideal for: directors, writers, producers and early stage DPs seeking to learn the language of visual storytelling.

Gayle Ye’s interest in filmmaking was sparked from her embarrassing days of creating lip synced music videos shot on her webcam and then thrown together in Windows Movie Maker.  Today she is an award-winning filmmaker whose work has been screened internationally at the Cannes Short Film Festival, Toronto International Short Film Festival and Canadian Diversity Film Festival. Her work has been described as “ethereal and powerful”. She is currently based in Toronto and is set to DP a variety of projects ranging from narratives, documentaries and multi-disciplinary projects.
