THE CAMERA CREW PANEL

Why shouldn't cinematographers be required to operate their own cameras? This seminar answers that question by exploring the unique role that each member of the camera crew plays in the collaborative art and craft of telling stories with moving images. The slightest nuance in light and darkness, colors, composition, camera movement and angles, focus and other countless variables can change both the meanings of and the emotions evoked by individual shots, scenes and stories.
