A special in-depth class for directors (and producers) on the basic principles of cinematography. Taught by Jeanne Tyson, this three-hour class will address concepts of visual storytelling through the use of lighting, lens choices, composition, movement, depth of field, color, contrast and filters. A strong emphasis will be on lighting objectives and strategy, the director/DP relationship and how to ask for what you want.
