specialisation : Direction + cinematography

Cinematographers are wizards of light and movement. They can take a dull, uninspiring image and with the use of the right lights, the right filters, and the right positioning, turn that image into art. In this specialization, students will master a wide range of cameras, equipment, and cinematographic techniques, including camera motion, different lighting techniques and setups, lenses and filters. Students will learn to work across studio, location and outdoor sets to shoot short and feature films, single and multi-camera television, ads, documentaries and corporate videos.
