About this Course
Cinematographers can drench the entire world in sadness, leave characters in a haze of confusion and even show us the manic feelings of a first love. Cinematography isn’t just about understanding the techniques of lighting or effectively using the lens, but the art of how to craft the image within the frame. Designed for both directors and cinematographers, the FilmSkills Cinematography Technique Course teaches you how to craft the details of the frame such as the actors’ eye lines, shot types, and composition. Learn the differences between film and video, as well as analog and digital, before delving deeper into the frame itself from aspect ratio conversions to maintaining screen direction.
Beautifully taught on set by Emmy and Oscar-award winning filmmakers, you will learn the techniques used by working professionals so you can enhance the look of your own productions in the FilmSkills Cinematography Techniques Course.
