Cinematography is to Filmmaking like a Lens is to a Camera; neither can function without the other. Hence, Cinematographers have one of the most essential jobs in any film production: bringing a director’s vision to life.
They do this by creating unforgettable images that will have a meaningful impact on our minds. But artistry apart, Cinematography is also a highly technical field. A good Cinematographer needs to know the physics of optics, the chemistry of laboratory processing, the electronics of video cameras and the mathematics of exposure. If ever there was a profession that married science and art, it is the profession of Cinematography.
Living Bridge’s philosophy of learning by doing means that our students develop their technical skills and artistic identities through a dynamic combination of classroom experience, practical hands-on exercises, and instructor-led individual projects. To this end, all students will be able to shoot at a basic level as well as appreciate the creative possibilities of cinematography.
The Workshop will be conducted over 4 Weeks from 18:00 to 21:00 every weekday.
Human visual system: Retina and Colour Perception, Colour models-hsv/hsl, Additive and Subtractive colour models.
