Directing Movement Field Workshop

Sunday, April 7
9:30 AM - 6:00 PM
Location: 3460 Caravetta Court, "The Space"
Instructor: Nic Somera & Rey Reyes

As filmmaking cameras have evolved over the decades they have advanced from mechanically complex heavy weights housed in immobile booths, to light weight ultraportable devices barely larger than a still photo camera, or arguably, the phone in your pocket. With so much cinematic power packed into such a small package, the ability to express the story through camera movement is an expectation now, rather than a desire. But with all the myriad ways to move the camera, it is easy for the art of storytelling to become lost in the simple search to add production value.

Join us as we explore the “why” of camera movement and stabilization with legendary camera operators and inventors Garrett Brown and Jerry Holway. This field workshop will focus on the effects that various kinds of camera movement have on narrative storytelling and cinematic grammar. Attendees will learn a greater understanding of human perception as it relates to movement, the various techniques and equipment used to move the camera effectively, and experience live demonstrations with professional operators. Upon completion, attendees will be able to speak a common language of movement, allowing them to not only creating moving shots with more meaning and emotion, but to collaborate with camera operators, cinematographers, and directors to more effectively realize their cinematic vision.

Note: This field workshop requires separate registration of $575.
