A cinematographer is responsible for all the visual elements of a film. In this masterclass you will learn the nitty gritty of how story is told with composition and movement, light and shadow, and colour. You’ll also learn best practices, set etiquette and how to break into the business. And of course the technical aspects like frame rate, lenses, lighting situations, getting into tight spaces, and what a cinematographer’s role can be in post production.
