Still to Moving: Cinematography for Artists

The natural evolution from still image making to motion picture image making is at the heart of this course as students look at this evolution from a Historical, Social, Conceptual, and Technical perspective. Artists who have been primarily working in still photography will learn to transition to visual storytelling through the lens of cinematography by addressing the technical requirements necessary to create motion pictures. Advanced discussions on film and digital formats, quality and quantity of light, exposure, composition, movement, camera support systems, and coverage for post-production will be explored through a combination of screenings, assignments, and readings.
