This workshop 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
• Quality of Light
• Camera Movement
Course will be limited to 10 participants to guarantee plenty of "hands-on" time.
Lunch and short breaks will be provided. Details of venue upon registration.
$180 for NZCS members, and $260 for non-members
Note: You can join the NZCS as a student member for $46 if you quailify (up to one year after graduation)
