OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS: Camera and Lighting Masterclass - Christchurch, Sunday 3 July

17 Jun 2022 1:57 PM | Amber Wakefield (Administrator)

The NZCS is delighted to announce an intensive Camera and Lighting for Drama, one-day Masterclass in Christchurch with legendary cinematographer Alun Bollinger NZCS on Sunday 3rd July.

This masterclass aims to introduce beginning and mid-level DP's to basic and intermediate cinematography techniques in a semi-formal, educational environment. It will consist of two main components: 1) Showing clips of the selected work with an explanation of the creative and technical techniques used, and 2) Practical demonstrations of these techniques in an interior location environment, so the attendees can learn how to execute them. 

Basic cinematography techniques that will be demonstrated:

 Three-point lighting  
• Contrast ratios
 Setting exposure (light meter, false colour, waveform)
 Depth of field
 Lens choice and composition

Intermediate cinematography techniques that will be conveyed:

 Coverage and ensuring set-ups will cut together
• Eye-lines
• Quality of Light
 Camera Movement

Email your application here. Note - this workshop is intended for South Island locals, and a workshop in the North Island will be held soon.

Course will be limited to 10 participants to guarantee plenty of "hands-on" time. 

$180 for NZCS members, and $260 for non-members
Note: You can join the NZCS as a student member for $46 if you qualify (up to one year after graduation)

Lunch and short breaks will be provided. Details of venue upon acceptance of application. Deadline for applications Thursday 23 June.
