Visiting Cinematography Workshop
Wednesday, September 23, 2015
4:00 pm – 9:00 pm (with dinner break)
Location: at University of MN Duluth (MMADLAB video studio / 24 Bohnannon Hall)

This one day workshop offers practical approaches to cinematography through discussion of narrative strategies and testing techniques using lighting, composition, and camera movement. The afternoon session will cover variable issues shooting on location in the autumn light. The evening session will focus on interior shooting, using UMD’s new video production studio (Motion + Media Across Disciplines Lab). Creative exercises share ways to shoot a scene with a window as a bridge between interior and exterior in the cinematic narrative. The workshop will provide hands-on experience with a variety of gear, including HD camcorders, DSLR cameras, and HD studio cameras. All participants are encouraged to bring their own cameras and memory cards. The workshop is aimed at emerging filmmakers (beginning to intermediate) interested in digital filmmaking of all sizes and budgets.

Emerging Filmmakers Project Duluth brings together University students, community members, beginning and experienced filmmakers to gain skills and share experiences telling stories with moving media. This project is funded by a University of Minnesota Duluth Academic Affairs Public Engagement Grant with additional support from UMD’s School of Fine Arts, Fine Arts Academy, and Motion and Media Across Disciplines Lab.
