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