Cinematography for Directors
July 29 at7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$20 – $40
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.
*Note: This workshop will take place on Zoom. You will receive an email with the link to participate.
